My hopes for a photographer were surpassed in Cara. I didn’t know quite what to expect, but the reality was far superior to the unknown. Cara is engaging, genuine, professional!

Bittersweet.  There is no word in the English language more appropriate in describing parenthood than this.  I’m a mother of three and I understand all too well how amazing and how hard and how emotional it is to watch your children grow up.


The days (and nights) feel so long when you have a newborn, but I am here to tell you that your baby will be a toddler before you know it.  Over time, the memories become fuzzy and photographs of your first days with your baby become invaluable. I am so passionate about capturing the fleeting time when you first welcome a new baby into your family.  My goal for every newborn session is to create images that remind you how you felt during this time in your life.


Newborn sessions always take place in the comfort of your home.  There is no wrong time to have a newborn session, but be aware that sleepy newborn images are most easily achieved within the first week of life.  Feedings and diaper changes are expected so please allow approximately 2 hours for the session.  I will take a wide variety of candid and posed images, my goal being to capture how it feels to have just a had a new baby!


The most important thing you should think about when choosing your outfit for your newborn session is comfort.  Your body has just gone through a tremendous amount of changes and the last thing you want to do is squeeze back into your pre-pregnancy jeans or wear a top that is too tight.  I recommend layering a camisole with a top or cardigan that allows you to ‘cover up’ any areas you don’t want to emphasize.  Keep the color palettes simple for the entire family and choose solids over patterns so the wardrobe isn’t competing with your newborn babies face!


A pre-session consultation via phone is included in your session fee, during which we can discuss wardrobe, how to prepare your home and your vision for the session.  We will schedule a tentative session time based on your due date and reschedule if necessary.  Within three weeks after your session I will professionally edit and tone the very best images from our time together and upload them to an online gallery.  Each photo will be presented in color and black & white.  A typical newborn session yields about 50-60 unique images.  Please inquire if you would like to see some sample galleries from my newborn clients.

Take a peek at some recent newborn sessions on my blog or get in touch to schedule your newborn session!



The newborn session fee is $350.  Prints, products and digital files are purchased separately.  An optional in person consultation can be scheduled at your convenience to view product samples and design wall galleries or make decisions about print purchases.


Document your baby’s first twelve months with a Birth to Birthday package.

Option 1 includes one in home newborn session and one family session at 12 months ($1300)

Option 2 includes one in home newborn session and two family sessions ( usually at 6 and 12 months ) ($1600)

Both packages include one 10×10 custom designed signature coffee table album. Prints and digital files are purchased separately.
