The Newborn Experience

My Background

I have been recognized as one of THE BEST newborn photographers in Columbus Ohio by Expertise, featured in VoyageOhio Magazine, and published in Lensational Model & Photographer Magazine. I also have over 90, 5-star reviews on Google. 

My Approach

From the moment we connect, you will experience the warmth of my personality. My desire is to provide you with excellent customer service, mixed with a genuine effort to know you better. My sessions are baby-led, meaning we don't force any pose. My goal is to keep your baby happy and safe. 

My style is clean and simple. I use all white backdrops, wraps, and accessories. I truly feel this timeless look truly keeps the focus of my images on your beautiful baby and family.

My Studio

Your newborn session will be held in my studio, comfortably located on the first floor of my home! The studio is warm, calm, and inviting. Plan to relax during your session and enjoy watching me create your heirloom images. 

The Newborn Process

Fill out my contact form and let's chat via email about your vision for your newborn session. Even if you just found out you are pregnant, it is never too early to start the conversation.

Be sure to include the details about what you are envisioning for your newborn session so that I can tailor your photography session to you uniquely. After all, it's these cherished moments of life that I love photographing so much.

Say Hello

Once we mutually feel we are a right fit, I will create a personal booking page for you! We will use your due date as your session date, and once baby comes you will reach out within 24 hours to book your actual session date. Once you sign my contract and pay your retainer, you are officially on the schedule!

I encourage you to formally book your session ASAP. I book only a select number of newborn sessions per month, so once the spots are full I am unable to take on any more. 

book your session

Once you are formally booked, I will send over a questionnaire to gather some details. This is my way of understanding your vision for your images so that I can begin planning. I will also send you a preparation guide to help you prepare for our session so it goes as smoothly as possible. This guide also includes a list of a few things to bring with you on session day. 

all the details

Your sweet baby is here - Yay! Reach out to me within 24 hours to schedule your session. I photograph newborns between 7-14 days post birth. All newborn sessions are held in my home studio and begin at 9:30 AM. I am currently scheduling Monday-Saturday. 

welcome to the world!

It is session day and I want you to be as relaxed as possible. All you need to do is show up! I provide all wraps, props, and accessories. Your baby will be embraced by the warm temperature in the room and soothed by our sound machine and rocking techniques. My sessions are never rushed and are baby-led. The priority is to keep your baby safe and happy! Your session can last up to 3 hours. Feedings and diaper changes are completely normal during the session and not anything to stress over. We will capture beautiful images of your little one no matter what!

Session day

Your gallery of high resolution, hand-edited digital photographs will be ready for you to view no more than 3 weeks following your newborn photography session. You are given  two weeks to select the digital images, prints, albums, and wall art that you want to purchase. All selections and purchases can be made from the comfort of your home, so no need to schedule another in-person appointment with me.

We LOVE Lauren and highly recommend her to any family wanting photos. We have used her for mini sessions during holiday and most recently a family session with our 15-month-old. She is so wonderful with kids, great to communicate and all around an amazing person. We now consider her a friend! Don’t waste anymore time and book with her now!

Lauren was absolutely fabulous. She is friendly, responsive, professional and just a pleasure to work with. Our family photo shoot was quick and easy, even with two toddlers. Lauren was prepared with great picture locations and settings, and I'm so glad we were able to have her take our annual family pictures. Thank you Lauren.
