A newborn baby is an amazing gift from God. I have been so lucky to be able to photograph so many babies over the years. I love them all dearly, and I treat them as if they were my own. I am professionally trained in newborn photography and safety, and work with an assistant for additional safety. I assure you; your session will be completely relaxed and unique to your newborn. I have an amazing closet full of high-end bonnets, headbands, wraps, and props for your little one. All I need from you is a sweet, sleepy baby.
"I'M SO GLAD WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE OUR PRECIOUS EARLY MOMENTS WITH OUR NEWBORN CAPTURED WITH ASHLEY. WE RECOMMEND HER TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY."
"FOR IN DREAMS, WE ENTER A WORLD THAT IS ENTIRELY OUR OWN. LET THEM SWIM IN THE DEEPEST OCEAN OR GLIDE OVER THE HIGHEST CLOUD."
A Newborn session with me is wholly focused on taking the time to appreciate the small details of this tiny new human. During our session we intentionally make time to create art that showcases this special season, because let’s face it, newborns are only this tiny for a short time. Parents & siblings are welcome to be included in your session.
All newborn sessions begin at $600 and take place in my home studio (full studio coming soon!!) in Temple, Oklahoma when baby is 5-14 days old. Babies may be 15-20 days old for relaxed lifestyle sessions. You may choose the option of a classically posed newborn session or a more relaxed session.
A $150 Creative Fee is due upon booking your session to save your place on my calendar, and the balance is due one week before your session date.
Each session includes your 2–4-hour session (depending on your baby), a complimentary consultation to plan your session details perfectly, assistance with wardrobe & access to my client closet, and 30 handcrafted full resolution images from your session. You may also choose to upgrade your gallery.
Maternity & Newborn
The Maternity & Newborn Collection begins at $1000 and is a collection that includes maternity & newborn sessions. Because this collection is bundled it saves you $200. Maternity Storytelling sessions are one of my favorite things! They allow me to really get into your space and capture your pregnancy and connections with your new baby and family. Unposed, real, and raw, these sessions are perfect for capturing the beauty of motherhood & pregnancy.
A $150 Creative Fee is due upon booking your session to save your place (Maternity session & Due Date) on my calendar, with a payment due one week before your maternity session, and the remaining balance due one week before your newborn session date.
This collection includes your maternity and newborn sessions, a complimentary consultation to plan your session details perfectly, assistance with wardrobe & access to my client closet, and 30 handcrafted full resolution images (from each session) with the option to upgrade your galleries.
Please use the button below to book your maternity & newborn session. If you are interested in a newborn collection ONLY please use the contact button at the bottom of this page.
** Milestone sessions for babies and toddlers are offered for current newborn clients. Please inquire for more information.
After Pay & Personal Payment plans are available, and discounts are given when maternity and newborn sessions are booked together. *Travel fees may apply to areas 40 miles outside of Temple, Oklahoma.
Final Note – As a busy mama of three, I advise you to please book your session as early as possible. My calendar does fill up quickly, and I am only able to take a limited number of newborns each month.
"LIFE'S BIGGEST MIRACLE IS HAVING THE GIFT OF LIFE GROWING INSIDE OF YOU."
Let Me Answer that
Maternity & newborn sessions are best booked in the second trimester. I like to photograph maternity between weeks 28-34 and new babies between 5-14 days old. If you choose a lifestyle session baby may be a touch older.
After you have completed the contact form you will receive a welcome email. Once you have decided that I am the photographer for you, let me know and I will send you my available dates. You will choose your preferred date, sign your portrait contract, and pay your creative fee. Once this process is complete, we will set up a time for a phone or Zoom call consultation to go over the details and your vision for your session.
I offer After Pay and Personal Payment plan options if it suits your family’s needs.
Upon booking you will receive an invoice for your creative fee. This payment gets your session saved on my calendar. Your session type and payment plan arrangements will depend on how the next invoices are issued. Your final balance is due in full one week before your scheduled session date.
I am located in Temple, Oklahoma but I am available for travel around the world. I currently have an in-home studio space on our family farm, but I am excited to be breaking ground on a custom build studio this summer!
You will receive your soft proof gallery within 2 weeks of your session date so you may choose your favorites. Then once the painting process is complete you will receive your finished, beautifully hand painted images via online gallery about 4-6 weeks after your session date. You will then be able to download your images and print release form your online gallery and upgrade your gallery if you choose. I do not release copyrights, RAW images, or unedited images from your session.
Absolutely! Styling can really make your session more special. I will walk you through each step of the styling process with you. I offer the experience of a client closet for my clients too! I have carefully curated a closet of beautiful hand-picked and custom-made clothing options for mamas and their babies. My client closet is part of my client experience and free for those who choose to book a session with me.
For newborn sessions I like the minimal approach. I like a monochromatic style using earthy and neutral colors. I will send you a detailed questionnaire regarding your color and style preferences, and I will walk you through each step of the styling process. I offer the experience of selecting only the best and most unique props to use with your newborn session.
Yes! I would be thrilled to come to you or meet you at an amazing destination or document this season in your home! I love to travel and would just love to have an adventure with your family. Travel fees for In home sessions are additional for areas outside 40 miles of temple, Oklahoma. Travel fees such as flight, vehicle rental, and hotel/lodging are additional for Adventure sessions. These costs may be divided if more than one session is booked.
If you have been in Oklahoma long you know we have the CRAZIEST weather here! Unless it is pouring rain or tornadic activity, we will have our session as scheduled. I do not reschedule because it is cloudy. Sometimes the clouds give a totally different feel to the session.
I would be honored to capture your baby’s first story
