Newborn Photography

“There are all types of love in this world, but never the same love twice.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

Wandering Woman’s Newborn Philosophy:

Dear momma, I am so privileged to be able to capture these memories of your baby that you will cherish forever. As a nurse and photographer, I can assure you that I will take excellent care of your baby during our time together. Newborn safety is my top priority!

The first few weeks with your baby are so amazing, but also overwhelming and tiring! That is normal for an expanding family, and there is no moment better than the present to capture this time in your life. I know as well as you that kids are all over the place and that babies cry. I’m here to give you a little break during the session. I will soothe your baby, help with diaper changes, and newborn posing.

My newborn sessions are never on a time limit. I start and stop, swaddle and un-swaddle, feed and burp as much as it takes to create timeless photos for your family. I want your experience with me to be relaxing and sentimental. I want to create beautiful memories to go with your beautiful pictures.

“Wandering Woman Photography was absolutely amazing my newborn.  Carly knew exactly how to soothe her and she basically slept through the whole session! Her experience as a pediatric nurse made me feel all the more comforted. Carly was fully prepared with poses and directions for the less experienced models (aka mom and dad) to follow during the lifestyle portion. 

She captured my visions exactly how I imagined them. So many tears when I opened the gallery for our family. The love we have will forever be frozen in time in these beautiful pictures! So talented and we are forever grateful!”

Design your dream session


My studio is set up to make sessions comfortable and beautiful! No need to deep clean your house for an in-home session, just schedule a newborn session in my natural light studio.  

During the Session:

Newborn sessions are a combination of lifestyle with family and posed newborn portraits. My posed newborn portraits are done with minimalist props, safe posing, and timeless newborn outfits.  During the lifestyle portion I will capture the delicate interactions between your family and your new baby! From sibling snuggles down to eyelash details, I strive to give you variety in your final gallery.

Client Closet:

Styling is one of the most important aspects in my photography.  It creates the romantic and natural look you see in my photo galleries.  With each session I offer full access to my forever-growing client wardrobe and styling advice for the family.  During newborn sessions I provide beautiful dresses for moms and every little detail for babies.  I style new babies in timeless outfits, cozy knit swaddle blankets, and minimalist props during newborn sessions. To keep the session natural, I gravitate to color neutral pieces. I am always willing to add pops of color to make your session perfect for you.

After the session:

Once your gallery is delivered you have timeless newborn pictures to be creative with.  Let me help you print your photos, arrange that perfect newborn scrapbook, or find that perfect custom frame to display your new family heirlooms.
