"Shell is fabulous! We love her, she has patience and an eye for the perfect poses and photos, she is the best!!" - The Jobe Family

When should you have newborn photos taken?

I suggest within 3 weeks of birth. Having a sleepy baby is very important to get the posed images. I always work with what baby wants to do as well.  If your baby is awake and happy, we will wrap them, get some photos and then they will go back to sleep eventually. A little feeding also helps. Patience is key and I have a ton of it!

"Just had my newborn pictures taken today with Shell! And she did amazing! I was alittle worried because my baby is 6 weeks old due to being in the NICU for 3 1/2 weeks for coming early, I wasn’t sure how well he would cooperate. But Shell was so patient and kind! I can’t wait to see our pictures and to book more with her in the future!!!" - Mariah

"Shell took pictures of newborn son, Noah. To say that I was impressed by her work is an understatement. Her photos of him are incredible!! They are so much more than I expected. Not only do they capture our sweet boy in such a beautiful light but she made everything so comfortable and easy! She welcomed us into her home/studio and made us all feel at ease immediately. She was great with Noah as well, my husband and I just sat back and watched her work her magic. There was zero stress involved. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get any pictures taken and plan to use her again in the very near future for family photos!" - Sarah
