Newborn Sessions

When should I schedule my newborns session?:

At Elzee Photography, we advise scheduling your newborn photography session during your pregnancy. Upon receiving your expected due date, we will reserve a slot in our calendar and confirm the session date upon your baby's arrival. If you discover our website after your baby is born, we strive to accommodate you within the first 16 days. Nevertheless, if your child surpasses the 16-day mark, rest assured, we can still capture images with the essence of newborn photography. To arrange your session, kindly reach out to us via email at


What age is considered newborn?:

At Elzee Photography, we highly advise scheduling your newborn photography session within the initial 16 days of your baby's life. This timeframe is crucial as newborns exhibit their most womb-like behaviors during this period, characterized by increased flexibility and prolonged sleepiness. A majority of the newborns featured in our portfolio are captured within this timeframe. However, if your child surpasses the 16-day mark, rest assured, we are adept at creating images that evoke the essence of newborn photography.


Does Elzee Photography provide the props?:

At Elzee Photography, we pride ourselves on offering an extensive array of props to enhance your photography session. Nevertheless, if you have particular props in mind that you'd like to incorporate, please inform us, and we'll make every effort to fulfill your request. You can preview some of the props we offer on our website.


I want to bring a special item and have my baby photographed with it, is that okay?:

At Elzee Photography, we cherish the chance to integrate personal belongings and cherished heirlooms into your photography session. We encourage our clients to bring along vintage pieces, family heirlooms, cultural attire, or any other special items they wish to include in the session. If you have specific items in mind, please inform us, and we'll make every effort to accommodate your request. Your session will be personalized to reflect the uniqueness and significance of these cherished possessions.


How long does a newborn session take?:

Newborn photography sessions at Elzee Photography typically span between 1.5 to 3 hours, tailored to accommodate the unique needs of each child. While some newborns may sleep peacefully throughout the session, others may require additional time to settle into poses. We kindly request that you allocate up to 3 hours at the studio, ensuring ample time to capture a diverse range of poses and setups. Your patience and understanding are greatly valued as we endeavor to deliver the utmost quality service.


What if my baby does not sleep?:

At Elzee Photography, ensuring the comfort and safety of your newborn is paramount to us. If, after 45 minutes of attempting to settle your baby, they do not fall asleep, we may need to reschedule your session for a later date. This decision is made with your baby's well-being in mind, as it is not feasible to continue the session while the baby is awake. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and sincerely appreciate your understanding in this matter.


What days does Elzee Photography do Newborn sessions?:

At Elzee Photography, we conduct newborn photography sessions on weekdays, Monday through Friday, starting at 10:00 am. Regrettably, we do not offer sessions on weekends. To schedule your session, please reach out to us, and we'll be delighted to accommodate your preferences.

Client Testimonial

The photographer, Crystal, creates beautiful pictures. She is patient, caring, and so very knowledgeable when it comes to photographing children. She has a wealth of props and has a keen eye for matching items (including headbands for little girls). I've had both a newborn and cake smash session with her (for both my girls) and am very satisfied. She captured my daughters' personalities to a T. I will definitely be a repeat customer (again!)-SAMANTHA BOLES


Crystal is an amazing photographer. We have done our newborn session, 6month, 1 year old session, and mini sessions with her and have always been extremely pleased. She is patient and handled my baby with the utmost care and consideration. She has tons of cute outfits, fun props and backdrops. Love how there are no hidden costs and she is upfront with her pricing. Highly recommend Elzee Photography to capture all your special moments.-Argelia Goodner


Crystal is extremely professional and does great work. We have had maternity pictures, newborn pictures, Easter pictures, Christmas pictures, cake smash pictures, and even Halloween pictures done by Crystal. She always works her magic and is so patient with my two kiddos. Her prices are very reasonable for the quality you get. She does outdoor pictures and has a beautiful studio as well. We will continue to use her for our future pictures. -Kim Squires

We've used Crystal at Elzee Photography for our maternity shoot, hospital photos, newborn photos, and first birthday cake smash. She is amazing! So patient with our little one who wasn't too happy! I learned some tricks for soothing him from her as well :) Highly recommend! -Gwen Vila


I have taken my one year old daughter to Elzee Photography 3 times in her first year of life. She is so great with babies, first we had our newborn shoot with her and the pictures were breathtaking! She made my daughter feel at ease, relaxed and comfortable. We really enjoyed how professional and creative Crystal is, so we took our daughter back for a session to capture our daughters 1st Christmas and just recently Baby’s 1st Bday/Smashcake Session. Elzee photography always delivers high quality, timeless photos. Professional and comfortable atmosphere, also she is so good with babies and children. We will definitely be back to capture more of our daughters milestones and precious moments for years to come.- Lee Pontzer


Crystal is amazing. In just about every way you can think of. She's organized, professional, friendly, fast and my kids LOVE her. I'll always treasure the photos she's taken for us!-Colleen Stafford
