All sessions are conducted in a hospital environment that adheres to strict sanitation standards, far surpassing the typical practices at portrait studios. We thoroughly clean and sanitize all equipment and props between each session. Additionally, our photographers undergo regular health screenings and background checks to maintain a safe and secure environment for everyone involved. This rigorous approach ensures that we provide a safe atmosphere that is crucial for your newborn’s health.

Absolutely! We love to integrate whoever is present during the session—siblings, parents, grandparents, and other family members are all welcome. Including your loved ones helps capture the full joy and connection of this special time, making your newborn’s portraits even more meaningful.”
