From Lifestyle to Traditional, our Newborn Sessions are growing...
As we've evolved in the newborn photography community, our style and niche have followed. What we styled newborns within 2010 is certainly different today. We've traded in the big bows for the dainty ones. We've invested in organic wools, soft natural wraps, and delicate knit bonnets and no longer use big crochet 2 piece sets. Just like your clothes change with the season and year, we are always adapting to the current style too. We binge on Pinterest and dream big just like you! And we've put our own flare into our work to create Mariposapix a brand. Each of our posing techniques is improved upon baby after baby. Our hope is that the final images look natural, beautiful, and takes your breath away. We have been in sessions where we've experienced a very sleepy baby mold to an incredible natural pose that many would consider un-posed. And we liked it.
A few months back, we had this vision to create a station in our studio for Mommy + Me Lifestyle Session. A big white bed, a wicker chair, many textiles of pillows, blankets, macrame, and cozy spots to snuggle were pulled together to create our spot. During some of our regularly scheduled Newborn Sessions, we decided to model them in our Mommy + Me bed. The result---we fell in LOVE with this. We loved watching couples relax and siblings easily hold their baby brother. It was just like they were home and comfortable. While we still added our detail shots and guided families in some natural posting, it felt very lifestyle. Therefore, we decided that we were going to keep our curtains open and let this be an option. A natural light Lifestyle Session is now available for Newborns + Baby/Child Milestones. In case you are wondering, we are still so in love with our traditional Deluxe Newborn Sessions so we are offering THREE different sessions to choose from. Below you will see a little bit about each of the Newborn Sessions to guide you in choosing what is best for your family. We realize that some of you already love the idea of combining a traditional deluxe posed session with the Lifestyle family portion so we made that an option too!
We hope to see you in the studio soon. If you are expecting, we are ready for you. Take a peek below at our options and then you can get on our newborn calendar so we are sure to provide the best for your family. If you are expecting, we would be honored to be your photographer!

Enjoy browsing our three options for Newborn Sessions.
Lifestyle Newborn Session
Our new Lifestyle Newborn session includes 3 stations/setups of your newborn and family (siblings if applicable). The family is the center of this session as we capture of few of the babies on the bed and then the baby with each of the family members and everyone together. It's just like you are at home snuggling up with your newborn baby. The baby is lightly wrapped (so we can still those tiny toes and fingers) during this session and we have some dresses for mommy and sibling girls in our wardrobe (optional). We provide a style guide for the family. This session usually lasts around 1-2 hours. A proofing gallery is provided where you can easily choose your favorite images for editing. It includes some digital images with options to purchase more images and prints. *This does not include our traditional poses.
Newborn Deluxe Session
Our Deluxe Newborn includes 5 stations/setups with our traditional posing flow in their natural state and wrapped on our soft blankets. We include baby in one of our baskets/buckets/prop designed by our creative team. We capture all the details from toes to fingers. This includes a traditional posed station for siblings and parents. We always include images of mommy/baby and daddy/baby and we have two optional areas/backgrounds to choose from for these (traditional dark or lifestyle light). We also provide a style guide for the family and some optional sibling dresses/mommy dresses in our wardrobe. You get to relax while we do the gentle work of patiently posing which can range between 3-4 hours. A proofing gallery is provided where you can easily choose your favorite images for editing. It includes some digital images with options to purchase more images and prints.
Our wrapped Swaddle Newborn session is perfect if you are wanting a shorter session with some classic wrapped images of your newborn. We have natural knit and soft wraps that we style with vintage baskets and buckets. This session includes 2-3 wrapped stations/setups of your newborn only. A proofing gallery is provided where you can easily choose your favorite images for editing. It includes some digital images with options to purchase more images and prints. *This is for newborns only.
Much love and health,
