Denver Newborn Photographer

There’s only one thing that’s guaranteed
with a baby:

They don’t keep. I would love to paint the picture here of exactly how you’ll be feeling on the morning of your photoshoot with your newborn. But I can’t because every mom and every baby are different.

Your experience won’t look like anyone else’s. And that’s a wonderful thing.

So rather than telling you how tired you’ll be or how you’ve never loved anything like this new baby you created, I’m gonna tell you that you’ll want images that remind you of this blur of a chapter.

In a year, you’ll want to be able to hold photos in your hands that show you what your baby looked like. And in 10, 20, 30 years, those same photos will show that baby how much you loved them from the start.

“Kara did an amazing job with our newborn twins photo session!”

Kara made us feel at ease during the photo shoot despite the chaos of two newborns and two dogs! She had a fast turnaround time with the photos and was super helpful in helping us choose the best photos. We have the photos hung on our staircase and love seeing them everyday.”

“Kara made our newborn session effortless.”

She took care of all the details to ensure I felt comfortable in the photos and got my birth
announcement and Christmas cards done in a flash all for me. All my friends commented on how organized I was…

…all thanks to Kara for making me look like a mom-extraordinaire!

How easy is easy peasy?

Here's exactly how this works:

You reach out, right here on the site and I get back to you ASAP with a link to book a call. Honestly, I try to save you as much time as possible and the phone call will save us each about 7 emails! After our chat, I’ll send you over a custom proposal for whatever kind of shoot you’re after.

Once you book, I immediately schedule a professional hair and makeup artist for you and send you my style guide and a link to my client wardrobe. You have access to everything I own for your shoot. (I’ll even drop the clothes off if you want to try things on before the session!)

It’s session day! You’ll look and feel fabulous, and I’ll only take an hour of your time. You’ll worry if the kids are too rowdy, but I’ll know they were perfectly themselves. (By the end of the session, I will be so excited to get home and edit the images for you!)

A week later, we’ll get together at your house to view your photos, check out what prints might work for specific walls, pick out your very favorites for an album, and finalize your order.

Within 4-6 weeks, your products will come in and I will hand deliver them to you! Chris, my installer, will come to hang any artwork. (And yes, it’s all included!)
