Welcome to A Thousand Words Photography

Newborn Session

Photography is a way of making time stand still. It's a way of feeling, touching, and loving. It remembers all the little details of the fleeting moment...forever. Photos remember long after we have forgotten. 

Photos bring us back to that moment. The moment when you heard that first cry. Touched that soft cheek. Held that precious life in your hands for the very first time. Newborns are that reason we carry on. They are the next breath...the next hope...the next reason for trying.

I want to give you, your family, aunts, uncles, grandpas and grandmas that frozen moment. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I contact you?

You should contact me in the beginning of your pregnancy! I book rather quickly, and I want to be able to fit you in my schedule! 

I will pencil you in for some slots around your due date. And if you deliver early/late, no problem!! We will find a time that works for both of us!

What do I have to do to prepare?


Make sure your new babe is fed-but then, try to relax! We will take the lead!

I have various items for your newborn session (buckets/baskets, etc) but if your baby has a special or meaningful item, be sure to bring those along!

It is also super helpful to bring along a pacifier/blankie/cuddle item to soothe and relax your baby! We want them to feel as comfortable as possible as we document this time of their life!

How long does the session last?

Newborn sessions take longer than regular sessions-and that's okay! We understand that we are on the baby's schedule! 

You can take as many breaks as you want to feed, change, or cuddle your little one!

Can we take a couple family photos?


The newborn session automatically will include photos with siblings/family. This is such a special time in your life, and we want to document it!

If you would like several family photos at the same session time-no problem! Contact me, and we'll work something out to fit your needs!

When does a session take place?

Newborn photos are best within the first 10 days of birth (this is when babies are the sleepiest/most fresh)! Contact me as soon as you have your little bundle, and we will do our best to find a time for the session within that time frame! 

What do I have to take along?

I have a huge amount of props for you to choose from! But if you have any special ideas, or any meaningful items that your child loves, please bring those along! Let me know if you have any special ideas ahead of time, so I can best prepare for the session!
