My ultimate goal for your experience is to ensure it is as smooth and stress free as possible! I handle literally everything for you! I customize a truly one of a kind session to meet your family's specific needs right down to your favorite colors. I totally get it as a mom myself, that postpartum period can be difficult. I assure you and always encourage moms to come in your sweat pants, lounge on my comfy sofa and get ready right in my studio. All you will need to do is get your family out the door, which we both know can be a task in itself!
You will have beautiful images to hang on your new gallery wall we create together or a breathtaking album to place on your end table. I love my families to have high quality, tangible items, to see and feel every day in their loving homes. Your heirloom-quality art work will tell the story of your family! I hope to follow your family's story throughout the years, beginning with your journey through motherhood, to watching your children and family grow year after year.
Your session will have full access to all of my custom and handmade studio props with every newborn session!
Providing you a truly One of a kind experience by PLANNing EVERY Tiny DETAIL!
No two babies are alike and as such, no two sessions are the same. Each #FTLNewborn I photograph, is an amazing fit. I truly want to mesh well with your family! I want the experience to be calm, enjoyable and stress free, as it will resonate in your beautiful images.
Email me (Amanda) and let's chat about your session!
After your consultation, I will send you a proposal for you to review. You will sign it and pay the reservation fee to hold your due date. Your session will be when your baby is 7-10 days old. Because babies come when ever they are ready I only take a limited number of newborn reservations a month. I recommend booking with me early in your second trimester.
In short, there's only one of me, and dates fill up fast, so be sure to book yours early.
Your session comes with a complimentary phone planning consultation. You will fill out a questionnaire specific to your session with your favorite colors, sentimental item requests, and other small details. Your session will be customized with every prop and color imaginable. Props from baskets to bowls, colors from blush pink to deep navy blue and even precious giraffe and baby fox lovies for your baby to snuggle and so much more! I have it all!
Your session will take place once baby is 7-10 days old. With all the excitement of your new baby, it is best to contact me before coming home from the hospital to schedule your final session date. A detailed prep guide will be provided to you on how to get baby, parents and siblings ready for the session, including what to wear! With previously filling out your newborn questionnaire, your unique session will already be planned and you just need to bring you and your sweet baby and soak in the experience! I know getting ready is probably the last thing you want to do, so feel free to show up in your pjs and get ready while you're here!
After your session, you will make your final selections of your favorite images you cannot live without! You will come back to my studio or have a virtual session where we select your favorite images. This is the time where you will also choose your heirloom photo products like premium albums, metal or canvas prints, or framed prints to be displayed in your home! I will be with you every step of the way to ensure you pick the absolute best products that fit your family best! You can expect your final images and fine art pieces to be ready in 4-6 weeks.
"We had a wonderful experience with Amanda for our newborn session! From the start of the process; she was quick to respond, friendly and professional. During the session, she made us feel very comfortable in her in-home studio and explained her process along the way. Amanda was very gentle with our little one and she captured some amazing pictures. We would definitely recommend Amanda and would use her again in the future!"
"For the Love of Photography is is exceptional! Amanda takes her time with your child/family, she works hard to deliver quality photos. She is incredibly kind and patient. She also takes all proper COVID precautions and keeps your baby very comfortable during the entire process. I highly recommend using her as a way to create keepsake memories for you and your family."
"Amanda was wonderful to work with. Amanda was super helpful and responsive. I am clueless when it comes to coordinating outfits for pictures. Amanda helped me coordinate outfits for my three girls and husband. Everyone looked fabulous. She was great working with children. She captured some beautiful pictures of our entire family and me for my maternity session."
"Our family was so impressed with our For the Love of Photography newborn session. We felt comfortable that all precautions were in place to keep all of us safe and healthy during COVID. Amanda was extremely professional and so patient with our newborn daughter. And when our toddler son was a bit difficult for photos she welcomed us back to her studio on a different day and worked with us to get the best photos of our little family. We are so impressed with what we have seen of the session so far and can’t wait for the final photos! Highly recommend working with FtLoP!"
"We had such a great time with Amanda! She was very professional and captured AMAZING pictures of our newborn. We felt more than comfortable and safe in her in-home studio especially during this crazy time. Thank you Amanda!"
"Amanda was so kind and easy to work with! We absolutely fell in love with the vision she had in mind for our maternity session. My husband and I both felt comfortable and directed for the entire shoot. For the Love of Photography made booking very easy.

Thank you, For the Love of Photography for making me feel so beautiful and capturing a moment in time that my husband and I will cherish forever!"
"We had an incredible experience working with Amanda! It was snowing and raining, yet she made it fun for our large crew and captured some great moments.
