Laura Volpacchio


You've heard it before, and we know it to be true: the newborn phase is the most fleeting of all.

Photographing teenie tiny ones and tiny ones is always a sweet adventure. Capturing a baby within the first few days, weeks or months of life is a privilege, and the resulting photographs become treasured works of art to look back on as life flies by. I've been lucky to follow some little lives from behind the lens, from bump through first steps and beyond. 

As with all of my photoshoot experiences, newborn and baby shoots are relaxed, down to earth, and tailored to your (and baby's) needs. Sessions most often take place at your home for less stress and more cozy.


• Down to earth
• Stress free
• Fun, like a playdate with a friend 
• Painless & Relaxed
• Candid
• Collaborative  
• Punctuated by feeding breaks & diaper changes
• Absurdly adorable

your Baby's session will be:

you'll get:

• High quality, beautiful photos that capture your little one authentically

• A plethora of images to choose from (this is usually the hardest part for clients - "I can't pick" is music to my ears)

• The option to purchase professional prints and wall art directly through your gallery. Wall layouts and album design also available. The world is your oyster!


When should I book?
↳For newborn shoots, as soon as you know your due date! We'll pencil in a date for a week after you're due, and I'll keep availability open around that date so you are guaranteed a shoot.

When is the best time to do a newborn shoot?
↳It's always a good time to photograph your new baby! For those sleepy, womb-like poses, we should shoot within two weeks of birth - 5-12 days after birth is ideal. Once the baby is older than two weeks we can absolutely still do a newborn shoot, the photographs will just be a bit different. Baby will likely be awake with outstretched limbs and likely won't let us do much posing. I've shot newborns anywhere from a week old to several months old with beautiful results.

Are you going to pose my baby?
↳A little bit, but not much. When we need to move baby, I'll ask you to do so, so it's less jarring for the baby (who is this lady!?) and you feel completely comfortable.

Are you going to bring props?
↳I’m all about photos of babies dressed up as pumpkins placed in a basket, but that’s just not me. I find babies to be fascinating little works of art all on their own that don't need much extra help to create beautiful photographs. We'll use any props you have at home - baby blankets, pillows, stuffed animals, sweet headbands, etc - to accessorize baby and make her/him comfortable while we photograph.

What is your turn around time?
↳Speedy! You'll have access to your images within two weeks of our session. If you have a specific timeline I will accommodate whenever possible!

Wait. I have another question...
↳Shoot me an email!
