newborn photography studio SWANSBORO nc near Jacksonville and hubert nc family photographer Samantha Ann photography



A relaxed and luxe EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR BUSY, growing FAMILY.

In those first few days with a newborn, some days are going to seem long but you know that the window is short to capture who they are. The tiny fingernails, flaky skin, and sleepy eyes melt our hearts as moms and we understand you want to capture how small they are before they've grown much through that first year. We can't freeze time but we can give you wall art that revives the memory of their first days, forever.

Not only have we designed our studio to give you a comfortable atmosphere where kids can play or parents can nap, you can sit back and drink an entire cup of (complimentary) coffee before it gets cold while we catch the moments your cherish! Our newborn clients have access to a client closet of beautiful props, wraps, and accessories which we use to design custom sets for your family. The best part: immediately following your session, you will view all of your images, choose only those you love, and select artwork that compliments your home. Keep reading for more.

"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! What a cute little studio as well. She has maximized her space very well making it inviting and comfortable! After the shoot we were able to pick the photos we wanted. What a wonderful experience!!"

our process


Scheduling Newborn Photography

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.


Studio Time

We book newborn clients Monday-Friday at 11:00 am and Saturday's at 10:00 am. We are closed Sunday's. Newborns, expect a minimum of 2 hours for your session. For other milestone sessions, contact us.


Client Closet

We have a curated client closet with the cutest props, wraps, headbands, blankets and accessories for capturing your newborn session! We will personally design 2-3unique prop sets for our newborns, based on your vision, that are used during the session.

We do not serve pets and our space can include families of 4 or less members for a session.

Kind Words

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 easy to work with and very patient with our shy toddler who wasn’t sure she wanted her pictures taken. She was able to get the most beautiful photos that we will cherish forever."
