Having a baby is one of the most important and special times in your lives. It’s also the time that seems to go by the quickest. Newborn photos are arguably the most important photos you will ever have done. Babies are at this teeny tiny, bendy, squishy, sleepy stage for such a small and fleeting time of life. They are growing and changing noticeably every single day. We get to enjoy them for such a small amount of time at this stage and it deserves to be remembered professionally.
There are many photographers to choose from, but, like a wedding, newborn photos are a one shot deal. They are something you don’t want to take a chance on. You want a photographer with galleries of beautiful photos, whose style you love, and who specializes in newborn photography.
Newborn photography is unlike any other genre of photography as the photographer will also be caring for the baby while the session is taking place. It’s not something to take lightly as not only are the integrity of the photos and your memories at stake, but most importantly, you need someone who knows how to care for and pose a baby safely. Just as you’ve researched and purchased the safest car seats, strollers, and cribs, you should extend that sentiment when hiring a photographer. Just because a photographer lists newborn or baby photography on their website does not make them qualified to do this! Remember, you get what you pay for!
You’ve spent your entire pregnancy, possibly longer, preparing for, thinking about, buying for, decorating for, and making sure every single detail is as perfect as possible for when your new one finally arrives. But, the baby will outgrow most everything you’ve bought in a matter of mere months. Newborn photos will last a lifetime or longer. They are an investment, not an expense, and something very special for both you and your baby to look back on for many years to come.
Take a look at what my amazing clients thought of their sessions! Thank you, everyone! <3
We came to Anne on the recommendation of a Notable Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer (Heather Lahtinen). We could not have been more pleased with how Anne took care of our son during the session. She made us feel comfortable in her studio while she quietly and efficiently did her job. The final product was AMAZING. We could not have been more pleased with the work she did. Thank You Anne! -Ron and Christine, Noah and Alexander’s parents
I am so thankful that you took these pictures. She has changed so much since these were taken and there is no way I’d be able to remember all her tiny perfect features without them. I love looking at them. THANK YOU! -Gina, Ella Jane’s mom

Thank you Thank you Thank you! This was such an amazing and fun experience. We had a total blast at the session and these results are so totally delicious. My little prince looks too adorable for words. I was looking at the teasers from my session on my phone last night, while holding Nolan and nursing him. My husband said, “So, you are looking at pictures of Nolan while holding Nolan?” And I replied, “Yes! I am obsessed!” Thank you so much again and again. You are a baby rock star.
