Oh my goodness! You are having a baby! Let's just soak that in for a minute because there aren't many things that happen in our lives that are more special and worthy of celebration than this! Every journey into parenthood is unique and you deserve a portrait experience that not only leaves you with beautiful images to cherish but also celebrates your story, showcases your style, and leaves you feeling cared for every step of the way. 

Prep guides, community resources, options for speciality composite images, studio props and outfits hand selected to match your style, and unique product options are all part of your newborn experience. 

If possible reserve your session date 4 or more months before your due date to ensure availability.

I have everything we need for styling the session here in the studio: props, outfits, hats, etc. Planning and styling sessions is one of my very favorite parts of the process! Before your session date you will complete a preferences form so that everything we use fits your style perfectly.

I know that it can be difficult choosing a photographer especially when it comes to someone handling your newborn. With over 8 years of experience my emphasis is on baby led sessions, natural posing, and safety. I am APNPI safety certified and continually take classes both online and in person to enhance my knowledge of newborn photography. 



a personalized experience from beginning to end

your newborn portrait session

After you have had a chance to look at my work and make sure we are a great fit it's time to book! Sessions are booked with a signed contract and $200 session fee. Most of my clients book 4 or more months in advance so the sooner we have a date reserved for your little one the better. 

1. Book your newborn session

Once your session fee has been paid and your spot is reserved  on my calendar I will be in touch with you every step of the way to make sure you are fully prepared for an amazing session and getting to know all about your growing family and style preferences. 

2. personalizing your newborn session

The session will take place in my home studio in Sparks, Nevada.  Studio session last anywhere from 2-3 hours. The baby is always the boss and we take breaks as needed. Siblings and parents are always welcome and encouraged to be included in the session. You will be emailed a session prep guide prior to your session but your most important job is just to relax and soak in the experience! 

3. the studio session

Once I have edited your images you will be invited to your  viewing appointment which can be done either in the studio or over a zoom call from the comfort of your own home (technology is pretty amazing!) During the image reveal you will get to enjoy a slideshow of all your images and then we will choose your collection, digitals, and any products you would like to purchase of your sweet baby.

the experience

I couldn't believe how fast my own babies went from newborns to full on kids! When I combined my love of photography with my love for babies I knew I was hooked! I have dedicated my entire photography business to photographing babies in order to provide the expert care and knowledge you deserve. 

Outside of having the best job ever I am also blessed to be a fire wife and momma. Our son Declan is 11 years old. He is curious, determined, and affectionate. Our daughter Esme is 9. She is spirited, imaginative, and fearless. We also have two spoiled fur babies. A rescue pup named Oliver and a Springer-doodle name Tucker. We spend our winters snuggling and our summers exploring.

more about me

Randi m.

Kristi was amazing!! As a former NICU nurse, I could tell that she is a pro at taking care of babies. She was gentle and thoughtful. Kristi allowed our baby to lead our session, stopping for feedings etc. She took time to get different photos and used props that meant a lot to our family. Our photos are absolutely beautiful!

Christine S.

The whole experience from booking until we received our final photos was more than I could have asked for. She makes sure you know exactly what to expect leading up to the session, then during the session she was so patient and knew all the tips and tricks to get all the perfect shots, then after the session sent us our final pictures quickly and efficiently. We will definitely be using Kristi again in the future!

Kristi is simply the best! We gave her pretty much complete creative control over our newborn session and we could not be happier with the way everything turned out. She is extremely professional and she definitely knows her stuff! Her handling of our newborn was safe and efficient and she was very patient with the process. Our photos are unbelievable and will be cherished for years to come. Make sure you book well in advance, as she is very popular! We cannot wait to use her services again in the future!
