In-Home Newborn Photography

Bringing home your new baby is something you will never forget! Let me help you document this special moment with timeless lifestyle portraits of you and your little one.


The session typically lasts around 90 minutes and includes photos of the baby alone, the baby with parents, the baby with siblings, and of course the baby with pets!


My greatest gift during this session is my calming presence. I keep the session very relaxed and I will direct you through the whole experience! I like to do these newborn sessions during the first 4 weeks of the baby's life.


That being said, if you need more time to recover and wrap your brain around photos, that is great too! My style is all about real moments and real life, so the timing is the least important factor.

Kind Words

Katie has the best attitude! She can connect with a two year old and forty two year old at the same time. She makes my whole family feel comfortable and always gets smiles!

Katie did such a great job at capturing the love and playfulness of our family. If you want relaxed, not overly posed photos, Katie is your girl!

What the faq?

When should I book a session?

You can book a newborn session during any point of your pregnancy (or even after the baby is born!) I require a $350 deposit to hold your due date and then we schedule the session once the baby is born. The sessions typically take place within the first 4 weeks.

Where do you shoot?

The majority of my sessions take place in San Francisco. The newborn session take place in your home. I live in the North Bay, so that is also included as an option for photoshoot locations. I can also travel to the East Bay and Peninsula, depending on availability, but there is a travel fee of $150.

Will you help us during the session?

Yes, yes yes. I will not leave you hanging. I will guide you and pose you so you are in the best light, then let the interaction happen naturally. I know most people think they are not "good at taking pictures," but you don't need to do anything. Just be yourself!

Will you bring props?

Nope, its just me and my camera! My style is based on natural and real life interactions, so I avoid any classically posed newborn photos (i.e. baby sleeping in a basket.) I am always happy to incorporate your own sentimental items into the scenes.
