Mintwood Milestones is our brand new approach to newborn photo packages! We asked lots of moms what they loved (or didn’t love) about newborn packages. We took their feedback to heart and have come up with a new, all-in-one package. As always, our goal is high quality, affordable photographs of what’s most important to our clients. With that in mind, we will still always offer individual newborn sessions! But we believe “Mintwood Milestones” is the very best deal on newborn photography you’ll find.
How It Works:
Each of the milestones on the lefthand side represents an exciting time in your baby’s first year. Your newborn will change so much during those first 12 months — getting cuter by the day! Each session varies in length, but you will receive a minimum of 20 proof images from any session. Your sessions can be booked all at once or as you go. As always, we provide reminders, tips, and unlimited use of any studio props.

Newborn Session FAQ
Where and when does the newborn photo session take place?
The photo session will take place in my Uptown studio, ideally within the first three weeks after baby’s birth. If you are interested in an at-home newborn session click here.
When should I book my baby’s newborn session?
The best time to book your session is during your pregnancy’s second or third trimester. I will ask you to contact me after baby is born and we will touch base to schedule a date and time for our photo shoot.
What if my baby arrives early/late/needs extended time in the hospital?
Don’t worry! Your signed session agreement guarantees my availability within a three week window of your baby’s birth date, whenever that may be. If baby requires a longer hospital stay, we’ll schedule for a time once he/she is happily settled at home.
I forgot to book ahead and my baby is already a few weeks old. Is it too late to have photos taken of my newborn/infant?
It's not too late! While I can’t guarantee I will get all of those curly, sleepy shots with older babies (they tend to be more alert and less bendy after the first two or three weeks) we can still take gorgeous photos of your newborn or young infant - especially if your baby enjoys being swaddled.
When can I expect my gallery to be ready?
Your proofing gallery will be emailed to you 10 days of your session, and will be open for two weeks (14 days) in order for you to make your selections. Please note that your session will not enter my editing queue until your session fee has been paid in full.
Ala carte newborn sessions are $300 and last up to 90 minutes.
