Maternity & Newborn Lifestyle Photography

This is an important time in your life and Emily Kettner Photography wants to be there to photograph it. Whether it's your beautiful baby bump or cuddly newborn, I'll capture the moments that you'll cherish forever. 

Newborn Sessions

A newborn lifestyle session is unlike a typical newborn session. In a lifestyle session, I come to you, in your home or chosen location, and photograph you and your family with your newborn in your natural home environment. This session typically includes more candid photography of happy, cuddly and close moments together. Emily Kettner Photography likes to photograph this session between 5-14 days from birth to capture the small, sleepy newborns. I will take individual photos of the newborn, but typically, these are not the cheesecloth-swaddled, basket-baby portrait images. 


My Style

Newborn sessions are unique and more editorial in style. I come to your home and capture moments, cuddles and sweet little details in a more natural setting. Images might be posed, but they are captured in the relaxed setting of your home. If you seek the typical "baby in a basket" type photos with props, I might not be the best fit for you, but can recommend some fantastic photographers in the area who do that type of work. No hard feelings. 


A maternity session is a chance to show of​f​ your baby bump — either with your spouse or individually — around 30-34 weeks of pregnancy. Bring your ultrasound, baby booties and other significant items to the shoot to highlight and remember this amazing time.
