palm springs photographer for the fun and nostalic at heart

the newborn experience

capturing those fleeting first moments

The newborn stage is really short, one month to be exact. That one month is filled with beauty, chaos and lots of sleepless nights. As a mom myself, I know just how fast the newborn stage passes and I am so thankful that we invested in our family's memories. I take out my son's newborn album quite often, and am flooded with emotion. Remembering how small his little feet were, how much hair he arrived with, and how he could fit into my husbands hands. It is season of our life that we can never get back, but we can relive it through our photos. 

I offer two types of newborn experiences. One is photographed in the comfort of your own home and can be scheduled within the first month of life. Lifestyle Newborn sessions are documentary in style focusing on connection, family and real life moments with your newborn.



The second session I offer is a studio session. These are photographed in my in-home studio and focus mainly on baby, but can also include immediate family members. These sessions are booked within the first fourteen days of life, as we need your newborn to be sleepy during their session. 

Both session include a consultation beforehand so we can customize your experience to make sure it fits your vision. My studio is fully stocked with all the props, backdrops, wraps, headbands, hats, and layers you'll need for baby's photos. I also have a growing client closet of dresses and children's clothing items that you can use during your session, to ensure that your session is stress free.

frequently asked questions

When should I schedule my session?

what should we wear?

do you travel?

what is required to book?

how can I get a quote?

As soon as you can. I will always try and fit last minute sessions in because I know how important this time is in your life, but to be on the safe side, book as early as possible. We will pencil your session date to coincide with your due date and finalize plans after your little one has arrived. 

You can expect your images back within 1-2 weeks after your session. I carefully choose the best images and edit with lots of love to make sure there is consistency throughout your entire gallery.

I recommend to stick with neutral, earthy tones as they never go out of style. They also go best with my editing and photography style. Once you book, you will receive a client portal with tons of information on what to wear, as well as guidance from me, with one on one calls. I also have a growing client closet of items that you can borrow for your session. As for your newborn, I have everything needed for our session; props, clothing, wraps, and accessories. Not to worry!

I do and want to travel more outside of the state! There is a travel fee involved, but if you need me to travel to you, I am more than happy to do so. 

A nonrefundable session fee of $300 is required to hold your session date and time as well as a signed contract. The remainder of the collection fee is due the day of the session. 

Reach out and I will walk you through all of your options. Can't wait to meet you!

"she is so gifted and wonderful to work with."

Deja took the most AMAZING photographs of my 2 year old niece! She not only got her to smile beautifully and naturally at the camera, but Deja also captured fantastic (and heartwarming) candid shots when even mom didn't know the camera was on. She is so gifted and wonderful to work with!
