preserving precious moments in print FOR THE GENERATIONS


We understand you want to capture their tiny details before they've outgrown them. The window of time to capture the newborn stage is tiny and while we can't freeze time we can preserve the details through heirloom wall art that revives the memory of their first days - forever. Not only have we designed our commercial studio to give you a comfortable atmosphere where you can watch a movie (or nap), you can sit back and drink an entire cup of complimentary coffee before it gets cold while we catch the moments you cherish!

Our studio has all of the beautiful props, wraps, and accessories necessary in which we use to design each set uniquely for your family. The best part: you will also view all of your images same day at your session, choose the moments you love, and select stunning artwork that compliments your home. Oh! And web files are included complimentary with wall art and album orders. You will receive those same day because we know you can't wait to share your joy with family and friends! Sound great?

"I was nervous my little active baby wouldn’t be still long enough for her newborn photo shoot but Sam was awesome at getting the shots! She booked out plenty of time to capture our beautiful baby! She has maximized her space very well making it inviting and comfortable! Right after the shoot we picked the photos we wanted to display in our home... What a wonderful experience!!"

01.


Scheduling


Newborn prop photography is recommended under 14 days old. However, we will work with all ages to safely capture beautiful heirloom imagery for you! We recommend scheduling as early as your second trimester so that we have your due date on our calendar. If you are prescheduled and deliver early/late we flex our calendar to suit the best window to capture the moments you'll cherish.

02.


Studio Time


We are located in Swansboro across from Ace Hardware (777 W Corbett Ave). We book newborn clients Monday-Thursday at 11:00 am.

We are closed Sunday's and do not offer in-home sessions.


Please expect a minimum of 2-3 hours for your session and gallery viewing. Due to the personalized nature of our service and gentle approach to newborns, we take ONE newborn session per day to give your family our undivided attention.

Sam could not have been any more of a joy to work with! She was very accommodating and explained everything I needed to know in great detail so everyone was prepared for the day of the studio shoot. The product that Sam delivered for us was professional, artful, and will always be treasured.

"Sam was so great to work with. She provides so much guidance on outfits, how to prepare, poses to do, etc - it really makes for a stress free time. She is very transparent about her services and products, takes time to learn about her customers, is quick to respond to questions, incorporates your items (such as blankets) beautifully, and is so great with babies. She commits so much time to your session, it truly is a special memory just from the experience, let alone the keepsake photos."
