They grow up so fast and the years fly by. That's why I cherish this adorable age and capture your babies in an effortless and natural way.

Congratulations on your new baby!
It is important to me that you love your final portraits and that they reflect your lifestyle and personality. My goal is to create artwork that you will cherish for a lifetime, and which will be a beautiful reminder of this incredible and brief milestone of your baby's life, and so each one of my newborn sessions are customized and stylized to your preferences.
I know it's hard to trust a stranger with your newborn, but to give you a little comfort... I am a mum myself to a beautiful little girl, all my vaccinations (including whooping cough) are up to date, I have been trained to handle newborns and I have successfully completed my CPR training in a childcare setting.
Your baby's safety and well being is my top priority. During the photo session, you are welcome to be right by my side or you can relax on the couch in the lounge area, and even catch a much needed nap. I also have a drawing table and books for siblings, a TV, and everything else you might need like water, coffee or tea.
My Vermont private home based photography studio is very clean and homey, designed with your comfort in mind.
WHEN TO BOOK
The ideal time for a newborn portrait session is when your baby is between 6 and 12 days old. Babies are very sleepy at this time, have little sensitivity to touch and sound, and are very comfortable in those adorable curled-up photography poses we all adore so much. Because the window to have a newborn photography session is so little, I recommend booking your baby's portrait session ahead of time, whilst you are still pregnant. Of course I understand that babies often don't come when they are expected, for that reason all of my newborn portrait appointments are on tentative basis. I keep in touch with you for the latest updates. Once your baby arrives we can move the photography appointment if necessary, as long as your booking is complete and you are on my calendar. If your baby is already here and you haven't had a chance to book a newborn portrait session ahead of time, please give me a call as soon as possible and hopefully I will be able to put you on my calendar and capture some beautiful portraits of your little one and your growing family!
What makes me different to other photographers out there?
Personalisation. No Obligation. Presentation.
Personalisation. No photo session is the same. I believe that everyone is different and unique in their own special way and my photography is a direct reflection of that. You may like bright colours, lots of props, natural/candid photos or plain and simple colours. Whatever your needs, I am here to listen and produce photographs you will cherish forever.
No Obligation. Everyone should be able to afford professional photography throughout all stages in their life. This is why I do not have a minimum spend requirement, nor do I require commitment to a package or price range upon booking a session. Presentation. After your photo session, on the same day, you get to view all of your photographs on a cinematic slideshow presentation in the studio. No need to book another appointment to come back and view or continuously check your emails to see if your photos have been uploaded online. It all happens on the same day.
"Stacey's photography speaks for itself, and I loved not having any pressure to decide on what I wanted before the session. It was so nice to be able to look at my pictures and then walk away with the USB in my hands all on the same day! Thank you Stacey!" See more testimonials here
** I now offer the option of having a more relaxed style and "lifestyle" approach newborn session if you feel you would rather "less posed" photographs and more of a white colour pallet.
