Our newborn studio is located in a professional office building in Hendersonville, TN. We moved into this space 2 years ago, and I have poured my heart and soul into it. All newborn and baby portraits take place here. The studio includes a waiting room, newborn room, lifestyle/family room, and our beautiful Client Closet. I’d love to give you a tour of the studio!
When you arrive at the studio, you will enter the waiting room area. Here you can find samples of the products I offer. There is a cozy couch to sit as you wait along with a play area for children and siblings. You will find toys, books, and an activity table to keep siblings busy while their new baby is being photographed. As you walk down the hallway to the shooting rooms, you will see our gallery wall filled with photos of babies. Along the way, you will find the kitchenette with snacks and drinks. Please make sure to visit it and help yourself!
As you continue down the hallway, you will find my favorite room in the studio… the Client Closet! This closet is filled with beautifully curated outfits for babies, moms, and siblings. Our baby clothing ranges in sizes 3 months – 2T for milestone photos. Our big sister dresses are dreamy dresses made for twirling. Please make sure your big sister does a twirl in front of the mirror before it’s her turn for photos. Bis sister dresses range in sizes 2T-8. We also have neutral colored shirts for dads and big brothers. The Client Closet includes hair accessories such as bows, bonnets, and floral crowns. You will also find our large selection of props on display.
Across from the Client Closet, you will find the newborn and milestone room. I call this space the “Baby Spa”. This room is kept warmer than the rest of the studio and has relaxing white noise playing. There is a seating area for parents. It also holds all of the gorgeous wraps and layer that I use for newborn sessions. I have spent years collecting and building this collection of fabrics in colors and styles that will photograph beautifully and stand the test of time.
I love watching babies grow during their first year, so our time together won’t end after your newborn session. I offer milestone sessions to capture each of your baby’s milestones as they grow. From tummy time to birthday cake smashes, I have you covered!
