"I'm so overwhelmingly satisfied with our photos and photo book and will always come back to Kate for all of our children's newborn shoots!"
Nebraska Newborn Photographer
Newborn photography has my heart and when you walk into the studio for your session you will see that. In the 11 years that I've been a newborn photographer, I have built up an impressive collection of props and fabrics. I have everything needed for the session so you just have to bring baby! You'll have a flexible arrival window, snacks and drinks awaiting you, and a playroom for the new big sibling. You get to relax after family photos and watch the magic of your new little one's first pictures! All set ups are customized to your color preferences.
Newborn sessions include family pictures and each parent with baby! While the session is mostly for your new little one, it's just as much a celebration for everyone! Plus later on you'll love seeing how little your baby was in your arms.
Your newborn session will start with sibling pictures if this isn't your first. I try to capture at least two poses of your babies together. I sometimes have to get creative if big sibling isn't having it but I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to make it happen!
The poses I put your little one in are based on the cues they give me so baby looks natural and relaxed. I am trained in newborn safety and ensure your baby is happy, warm and comfortable throughout the session.

Frequently Asked Questions
When should I have newborn pictures taken?
The ideal window for newborn photos is between 5-16 days of age but I can still get beautiful images of your little one up to 6 weeks old!
When will I receive my final images?
Once your favorites are finalized and you email to let me know your are done I will send you an invoice for your chosen digital collection. Your images will be hand edited and sent to you 7-14 days after your invoice is paid.
What if I want more images?
A minimum collection purchase of 6 images (200) is required after each session. After that you may select any number you choose. A custom package will be created for you if you select more than a collection includes.
What editing do you do on photos?
I hand edit all your chosen images, meaning I edit blemishes, redness, dry skin, jaundice, tired parent eyes, etc. I also offer composite editing for sibling/family photos where I take everyone's best smile from one pose and composite them together into one photo! Newborn safety is the most important so I may ask that a parent place a supporting hand on your little one that I will later edit out.
Can I print my images anywhere?
Yes! Your chosen edited images will be delivered via digital download. They are high resolution files and include a print release so you can print and share wherever you'd like! Professional prints and products are also available to purchase through your gallery starting at $5 for a print.
Where is your studio located?
My studio is 12 miles south of Lincoln on my acreage in Hickman, Nebraska. It backs to a gorgeous lake which I often use for half outdoor/half in studio sessions!
How long have you been a newborn photographer?
11 amazing years!! I love what I do! When you step into my studio, it's obvious that newborn photography is my specialty and where my heart lies. I have a large colelction of props and adorable custom pieces I've collected over the years. I also have an endless amount of patience when working with babies so you'll never feel rushed from me. I would love to document this special time for your family!
