Peek Inside my Newborn Photography Studio

Premiere Portrait Studio with Modern Amenities for your Family

Hello and welcome!  I’m so excited to introduce you to my newborn photography studio.  As a specialized newborn photographer, having a dedicated space to photograph babies is very important to me and my clients.  I need the space to be both functional for me to work and welcoming for my clients.

When you book a newborn portrait experience with me, your session will take place at my comfortable home studio.  It is situated in a safe and beautiful neighborhood in Randolph, New Jersey.  I built my photography studio in my home to offer you the utmost in comfort and privacy. I’m so proud of this space, and I’m so happy that you are here.  

The Parent Lounge

I have created a relaxing Parent Lounge for your enjoyment during our time together.  Newborn sessions can run anywhere from two to three hours or longer; that’s why I provide ample amenities to keep your family comfortable during your stay.  From complimentary refreshments and entertainment options to clean facilities, this space was created with you and your family in mind.

I have a refreshment station set up and available for you to help yourselves. In addition to bottled water, you will find a Keurig stocked with different varieties of coffee, tea and cocoa.  Sugar and creamer are also on hand. Sleep deprived parents can enjoy a nice hot cup of coffee, uninterrupted!  And feel free to choose something from the basket of complimentary snacks; every item is individually wrapped for freshness and food allergy safety.  Of course, you are always welcome to bring your own food to enjoy while you are here.

While you are drinking your coffee, you will be sitting on my comfortable recliner sofas.  The legs extend all the way out so you can actually lay down. You wouldn’t be the first parent who finds my newborn photography studio so relaxing that they curl up and take a nap during their session! 


If you would rather not nap, you can also sit and enjoy the free wifi.  Catch up on work, social media or reading, the choice is yours!  There is also a large screen TV to watch your favorite news, shows or movies.  This is especially helpful if you need to entertain toddlers or other young children for a few hours during your session.


In addition to a bathroom, the studio provides a changing table complete with newborn size diapers and wipes.  Tissues and hand sanitizer are on hand to keep everyone clean.  Not to mention, we have comprehensive cleaning procedures in place to make sure the facilities are disinfected after every session and newborn props are cleaned with a baby-safe wash every each use.

The Shooting Room

The actual portrait session takes place in my Shooting Room.  This is a separate area just off the Parent Lounge.  You are more than welcome to sit with me in the Shooting Room while I photograph your baby if you like.  But don’t worry, you also have a direct view of everything from the comfortable spot on the sofas in the Parent Lounge.  All of my props and equipment are in the Shooting Room, since this is where I will be taking beautiful portraits of your baby and family.

Photography Props

I use a variety of unique and beautiful props to style my newborn and baby portrait sessions.  Newborn props include a variety of wraps, bonnets and headbands, as well as floor props ranging from bowls to baskets and more.  For sitting babies, we use the same floor props in addition to a darling studio wardrobe selection complete with matching accessories.  Be sure to check out my favorite newborn photography props for an in-depth look at all of my props!

Professional Equipment

You would expect to find only state of the art equipment at a professional studio dedicated to newborn and family portraiture.  A backdrop system keeps several different colors available to use for your session, giving families the choice of backdrop that suits them best.  This also allows for quick backdrop changes to achieve multiple looks throughout the session. 

Professional lighting system ensures that subjects are evenly and beautifully lit, whether I am photographing a tiny newborn baby or a family or four.  Last but not least, my camera and lenses are also professional grade and regularly serviced.  All of this ensures that your images come out sharp and capture every detail.

Photography Studio for Babies and Families

My newborn photography studio is one of my favorite spaces, and I’m sure you will love it too!  Whether you are coming in for maternity or newborn portraits, returning for a tummy time session or a sitter session, or looking for portraits of your older children and family, my studio space is perfect for babies and families of all ages. I can’t wait to welcome you to my studio!
