Start your family’s story…

      Whether you are welcoming your first baby or your fifth, your family is about to be born anew. Your newborn’s portraits should recall your sweet baby – simple and pure – and the new family connections that are created in those special first days. With a fresh approach to fine art newborn photography, we create simple images that are full of emotion and free of the distractions of bows, boxes and baskets.

      We believe wholeheartedly in the power of print and the treasure of a family heirloom and provide a carefully curated line of exceptional artwork for your home.

      We photograph most of our newborn clients 6-12 days after birth. We are honored that you are considering us to be a part of this special time in your lives.

      Your Portrait Experience

      The Comforts of Home

      The days after baby is born are like no other. We know what those days (and nights) feel like, and we want to help you stay in your “baby bubble” as long as possible. That’s why we bring our complete newborn set-up to you. We’ll photograph your baby in the comfort of your own home so that you can concentrate on what’s important – taking care of baby and yourself. In fact, we also come to you for your pre-session creative consultation and your viewing & ordering appointment.

      Full-Service Design

      Every session begins with a final product in mind. During your creative consultation we’ll help you plan how you’d like to display your portraits and design your session accordingly. From what colors to wear to where to hang your finished wall art, we are with you every step of the way to ensure that you love your images and your finished artwork.

      No-Stress Sessions

      Your session is thoughtfully planned and designed to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. We give you all the help you need to prepare yourself and baby for our time together.

      We follow your baby’s lead when posing and make her safety and comfort our top priorities. We follow baby’s rhythm and never impose a time-limit on your session.

      During your session Ariel and her assistant will take care of everything, so that you can rest and relax. Our clients usually tell us that the session was a lovely break for them!

      In-home Selection & Design

      The very best bit of your experience comes about two weeks after your session with an in-home slideshow (it’s okay to shed a tear or two while you watch).

      After the slideshow Ariel will walk you through the process of sorting through your images and finalizing the design of your artwork. You’ll place your final order during this appointment and a few weeks later your artwork will be hand-delivered to you. Magic.

      Unparalleled Product

      Your newborn portraits are more than just a snapshot. They are the beginning of your family legacy. We know that the artwork you take home will be enjoyed by you for years to come. When we create your newborn’s album we’re thinking about how much you’ll love it on delivery day, but also of your little one looking through it with her own children one day.

      We collaborate with the best craftspeople in the country to turn your portraits into works of art.

      For the few hours we spend together, many more are spent by Ariel and her team – behind the scenes – perfecting your images, wall-art and albums. At the end of our time together you’ll have portraits that you can hold in your hands and hang on your walls, and enjoy for generations to come.

      What a great service Ariel provides! She took such special care our family, and with a new baby, it was so nice to be taken such good care of and come out with amazing pictures on the other side. I mean amazing pictures. She captured our baby (and his big brother) perfectly and calmly. Can’t recommend her enough! –Jen, Silverlake, CA

      Your Artwork

      At Ariel Cannon Photography we believe that your portraits need to be seen and enjoyed everyday, not trapped on a USB or in the cloud.

      We offer a carefully curated line of quality artwork for your home. From hand-textured canvases, to museum framed prints, to heirloom albums, we’ll design finished portraiture that complements your home and works with your lifestyle.

      You’ll love that little spark of joy you get walking by your family portrait each morning or looking through your little one’s newborn album.

      We work hard to source the very best products available because we know that your artwork and albums will be with your family for generations.

      Digital images are also available. Schedule a consultation to see all of our artwork options in person.


      Newborn Sessions are reserved with a $375 session fee.

      This session fee formally books your portrait appointment and covers the in-person creative consultation, your portrait session with Ariel, post-session processing and preparation of your images and an in-home viewing & ordering appointment. It does not include any prints or products.

      During your viewing & ordering appointment, you will be able to view your images and decide what you would like to order. You may choose from beautiful mounted prints, framed prints and canvases, folio boxes, albums, and digital images. The amount you choose to invest is completely up to you; you only purchase what you love! Most newborn clients invest between $1000 and $3000 on a collection of their favorite artwork to display and enjoy in their home.
