Those early firsts go by incredibly fast- maybe it's because we're sleep deprived, on a hormone 'high', or overwhelmed with immense joy. Either way, it's these feelings of emotions that you never want to forget.

The Fire Family

Newborn photography sessions capture the sweet moments of families with a new baby. They usually happen in the comfort of your home, but can also take place outdoors if you're feeling adventurous! As your Macon Newborn photographer I know how chaotic life can be in those first few weeks at home with a baby, so I do my best to make these sessions stress-free and relaxing.

Capturing the unique natural details of you and your baby

Know that you have a photographer who will help prepare you before your session so you can have the most stress-free, relaxed session possible.

You want to let go of the idea of perfection and embrace that real life is beautiful!

Capturing candid and real moments with your baby is important. You want to remember the interactions between you and your child in a relaxed, natural way.

Why choose Fire Family

Finding the perfect outfit for your newborn photos can be difficult. I offer a client closet for my mamas that is always growing. 

One day after booking your photo session, you will receive my client questionnaire. This is the most important step of the entire planning process. The questionnaire will help me to understand your vision, family dynamic, location, and style preferences.

1. planning

2. styling & prepping

After getting to know you and your style preferences from your styling questionnaire, I’ll put together a session style board for you. This will make it easy for you to choose what to wear without any stress. All you need to do is follow my selections or suggestions, and we’re good to go!

During your session, I will help you with poses that will make you look and feel your best. There is no need to be nervous! My goal is to capture the connection between you, your baby, and your partner/kiddos (if present), as well as to make you feel like the gorgeous expecting mama you are!

3. session day

Proofing galleries will be delivered within five days of your session. Once you have chosen your image collection and images, I will fully hand-edit those images and provide your complete online gallery of high-resolution images for printing, downloading, and sharing within three weeks. Custom payment plans are available upon request. Reach out to me and we can chat about the details.


Download your images and spend your artwork credit. Simply choose whichever artwork you want within your online gallery and apply that credit to your total cart value. It's that easy! And I'm here to assist or answer any questions for you along the way.
