Newborn Photography Sessions

Celebrate your new baby with a custom newborn session designed just for you. We'll create a variety of classic, artistic images of your new baby while also capturing all of those tiny details that you'll look back on in a few months and wonder how in the world that tiny human ever fit into your belly!

Each package includes a limited number of high-resolution digital files that will be edited to perfection and delivered to you in a downloadable gallery. You will also receive both the color and black and white images of every selected image. Jen offers a wide variety of professionally printed wall art products along with prints and albums that are available for purchase. 

Your session includes access to my extensive collection of newborn props, outfits, headbands, wraps, backdrops. Everything will be provided for you at the studio for your session and we will discuss and plan the session details in advance so you can sit back and relax when you arrive the day of.

Jen has worked with hundreds of babies throughout her nine year career as a photographer and has received training in newborn safety as well as extensive one-on-one training on how to safely pose your baby so they are relaxed and comfortable throughout the session. Newborn sessions are typically done in the first 7-21 days, however, older newborns (up to 3 months) have become a specialty and she is happy to accommodate an older newborn if you have missed that window.  

Overall, the goal is to ensure that you have a seamless client experience from start to finish and are absolutely in love with your final images.

The Session

Scheduling Your  Session


Newborn sessions take place at the Hello Photography studio located in Cedar Park, TX.  Your session is customized to your desires and Jen is available to help every step of the way to provide an exceptional personal experience for every client. I will handle your baby as if they are my own while you are in my studio and have spent many hours mentoring with other professional newborn photographers to learn how to safely handle and pose newborn babies properly.  I have over 8 years of experience working with newborns and have photographed hundreds of babies in my career! 

When your baby arrives, you'll reach out to Jen and she will send a variety of session options to choose from, along with a session prep guide along with a session questionnaire where you will let her know your color what colors you want to incorporate in the session, any must-have props or poses you would like, and what background colors you want to use for your first family photos!  Jen will provide everything for baby during the session and you will have access to her full collection of outfits, wraps, backdrops, and props for your session. All you need to bring is your baby's food source and Jen will take care of the rest! 

It is never too early to book your newborn session and most families book their session before their third trimester. Newborn sessions are best captured in the first 7-21 days, however, Jen has worked with a lot of older newborns who have had some beautiful newborn sessions! Jen only reserves two spaces each week to accommodate her tiniest clients and offer a variety of session dates/times for you to choose from once your baby arrives.

This session is really dictated by your baby and can take anywhere from 2-4 hours.  We'll take breaks as needed for diaper changes, snacks, and cuddles from mom or dad if necessary. The lights will be dim, the room will be warm and cozy. There is a couch for parents to relax along with a small fridge with bottled water and some light snacks.   You are welcome to sit back and take a break while Jen works patiently with your baby to create some magical portraits. 

Within two days of your newborn session, Jen will send your unedited proof gallery so you can make your selections. Once you've picked out your favorite newborn photos, the editing process beings. Your images will be edited to perfection and your final images will be delivered to you via online gallery within one week of your selections being made. I know you are excited about seeing your images and I don't believe in making you wait multiple weeks to get them back.

Let's Work Together

I loved working with Jen for our daughters newborn photos! Jen is not only kind, patient, and talented, but also so much fun to be around! She was the only photographer I reached out to that was confident in taking newborn photos for our 2 month old daughter!
Jen is a baby whisperer!! My biggest concern was not being able to get the cute sleepy newborn photos cause my daughter was a bit older, but wow-o-wow was I wrong! Jen is unbelievably talented and experienced working with newborns, and was able to get baby girl to fall asleep for every photo! I even implemented some of the techniques she used in the studio in my daily life to get baby girl to nap! I truly had no idea how much effort goes into getting a cute newborn photo! I was amazed when she spent ~45 minutes getting my baby to fall asleep, and patiently move my sweet girl into the froggy pose!!
We had a blast at our newborn photoshoot and couldn't recommend Jen more! We will 100% be going back to her in the future :)

Jen made the whole experience of maternity and newborn photoshoot very comfortable and relaxed. Her work is amazing and gave us lifelong treasured memories. She is very good at handling babies and meet all the expectations you have by discussing even smallest details before the photoshoot. I already want to take cake smash photos of lil one with Jen in future. She is best in town😀  ~Vineela

We loved working with Jen for both our maternity and newborn photos! For the maternity photos, she made both my husband and I feel at ease by telling us exactly how to pose, making the experience lighthearted, and personalizing the photos to our fertility/pregnancy journey. Our newborn session was such an enjoyable experience! It was so relaxing for us as parents and for our baby. Jen was so patient while posing our baby and she completely understood the type of photos and colors I wanted. We’ve already recommended Jen to others in our network and look forward to working with her again in the future.  ~Alyssa

Jen is amazing! I booked my maternity photos with her and they turned out so beautiful. She was so accommodating and made my husband and I feel so comfortable during the photo shoot. We aren't naturals in front of the camera but her tips made us look like we were :) Such a great photographer with a wonderful personality. ~Valeria

Jen does an absolutely phenomenal job! We did newborn and family photos with her and she does an incredible job capturing the magic of the newborn stage ☺️ She is very attention to detail and will take the time and effort to capture the best angles and poses. She has a variety of adorable newborn props that you can pick from. Her studio is very relaxing and overall it’s a very stress-free experience! I would absolutely pick her again for any future professional photos we get for our family.

Jen is an amazing photographer. We are so glad that we chose her for capturing our precious and biggest moment of our life . She is very hardworking and professional. Each and every picture she took was magical experience for us . She always kept us in the loop with appointments , locations and also did a quick turnaround on all the final images. She is really caring ,fun and made us and our baby very comfortable during and after the photoshoots. She also has an amazing closet for newborn and maternity. I would highly recommend Jen for anyone who wants to have an awesome experience while capturing their best moments. We look forward to working with her again ❤️ ~Roja

I can't recommend Jen enough! Since the very beginning, she was incredibly committed to making our photo session a success! I loved every minute of working with Jen. She quickly understood what I was looking for, offered a range of possibilities, ideas, locations, etc. She was recommended under the 'once you met Jen, there's no way back' premise, and I now totally understand. Extremely professional, no wasted time and results that will blow your mind... plus, she's just a delight to work with! SO HAPPY I FOUND YOU! ~Andrea

This is my first time being pregnant and also experiencing a maternity photo session. I’m still in awe of my beyond gorgeous maternity photos!!!! Jen ultimately made me feel very comfortable. She even got waist deep in water getting the perfect angles of my BEAUTIFUL shots, if that’s not dedication then I’m not sure what is! I wanted a beautiful water feature & she surely gave me exactly what I wanted and MORE!!! Very professional & got my pictures back to me in a short amount of time with editing... even due to her busy schedule. She is very dedicated to her work & I recommend anyone to trusting her photography skills. She is beyond exceptional! ~Aaliyah

Jen is an amazing photographer! She is also an awesome person to work with. She is very responsive, friendly, patient, and open minded. The whole process from booking the photoshoot to getting my final pictures was very smooth and enjoyable. During the shoot, her easy-going personality made me feel comfortable trying different settings and shots. The maternity photos we received came out fantastic and I’m so happy Jen was able to capture the beauty of my pregnancy. The turnaround time to getting the final photos was very fast too. I highly recommend Jen if you are looking for a quality, professional, fun, and down to earth photographer! ~Sovattey

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - Working with Jen for our Newborn session was amazing! From the beginning she was responsive, professional yet very friendly, and gave us great information prior to our session so we would be prepared. She has a great workflow for the session but takes her cues from the little one so she can capture the best possible moments for you! She's so patient with the babies and it's clear she genuinely loves what she does! She's really creative with her shots and is willing to work in anything that you might want (ours was military stuff)! The photos we received are incredible and we had a very hard time picking out our favorites because they were all so wonderful! She's worth every. single. penny!! We'll be using her for our son's first birthday smash cake session and our next little one as well!! ~Nicole

Exceptional photography and customer service. She made me completely comfortable for all of my shots. I was nervous about the end results because I'm such a picky person when it comes to myself but I was more than pleased with my photos. ~Xiomara

Jen was amazing! So responsive to our questions. Worked so well with all of our ideas and captured are sweet little girl perfectly. She is a baby whisperer and so very caring. Our photos turned out perfect we loved every single shot. ~Malari

Jen has been taking our family photos since our first daughter was born 4 years ago. She she is fantastic with our children and always captures the most beautiful moments. I had her do a newborn session with my youngest daughter and she was so skilled with posing her and getting the sweetest pictures. I wouldn’t use anyone else for our photos!! She is simply the best. ~Jordan-Anne
