Natural Newborn Photography

When your baby is born you will be bowled over by their perfection. You'll want to trace each detail and remember it forever. As a newborn photographer, my job is to help you do just that.

No distracting props or unnatural poses necessary. The elements I rely on are simple: Natural posing, delicate wraps, and gorgeous light.

I've found that this is the very best way to keep your baby safe and comfortable and deliver timeless newborn portraits.


An experience designed with new parents in mind

Welcoming your new baby is a joyous experience, but it can be all-consuming. As a mom twice over, I know that adding stress during those first days is the last thing you want to do. That’s why I've designed your session experience to be as easy and enjoyable as possible.

From inquiry to portrait delivery, it’s my pleasure to offer a full-service experience that feels less like a chore and more like a celebration.

let me take care of every little detail, so that you can focus on what's important... your new baby





Convenient image delivery

All the little details taken care of

A tailored experience to fit your family

Custom artwork design and production

I know how eager you are to see your newborn's gallery. I make sure to deliver your gallery within 3 weeks of your session... usually earlier!

Your newborn session includes a collection of fully retouched, high resolution digital images. Your private online gallery makes sharing with friends and family a breeze.

Your newborn session includes a collection of full-resolution digital files. However, I don’t believe that my job is done until your favorite images are preserved in print for you to enjoy today and pass on to your children in the future. Complimentary artwork design is included with your session and it is my absolute joy to leave you with heirloom artwork for your home.

I'm here to walk you through your newborn portrait experience. I'll let you know what to expect and how to prepare every step of the way. And, really, there isn't much for you to do! Whether we photograph your little one in my studio or your home I bring everything we need. I even provide wardrobe for mom and style the rest of your family so that everyone looks their best.

I offer both in-home and studio sessions. Many of my clients are ready to get out of the house for their session and enjoy a change of scenery. However, for some, an in-home session feels more comfortable. I'll help you choose the location that will serve your family best and ensure that we will get gorgeous, light-filled images of your newborn.

I can't believe we almost didn't have newborn photographs done. Working with Ariel was one of the best decisions we've made as parents. She made the whole process so easy (probably the easiest thing we did in the first month!). More importantly, the photos themselves are stunning. I love them more every time I look at them!

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!
