Newborn Sessions

When should I schedule my newborns session?:

At Elzee Photography, we recommend scheduling your newborn photography session during your pregnancy. We will add your expected due date to our calendar and finalize the session date when your baby arrives. If you find our website after your baby is born, we will do our best to accommodate you within the first 16 days. However, if your child is older than 16 days, don't worry - we can still capture newborn-like images. To schedule your session, please email us at


What age is considered newborn?:

At Elzee Photography, we recommend scheduling your newborn photography session within the first 16 days of your baby's life. This is because after two to three weeks, newborns tend to lose their womb-like behavior and become less curled up and sleepy. Most of the newborns featured in our gallery are less than 16 days old. However, if your child is older than 16 days, we can still capture newborn-like images


Does Elzee Photography provide the props?:

At Elzee Photography, we strive to provide a wide variety of props for your photography session. However, if you have specific props that you would like to use, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your request. You can view some of our props here.


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

At Elzee Photography, we welcome the opportunity to incorporate personal items and heirlooms into your photography session. We encourage our clients to bring vintage items, family heirlooms, cultural attire, or any other special items that you would like to include in the session. Please let us know if you have any specific items that you would like to use, and we will do our best to accommodate your request


How long does a newborn session take?:

Newborn photography sessions at Elzee Photography typically last between 1.5 and 3 hours, depending on the individual needs of the child. Some newborns sleep very well and others may require more time to settle and pose. Please plan to spend up to 3 hours at the studio to ensure that we have sufficient time to capture a variety of poses and setups. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we strive to provide the highest quality service.


What if my baby does not sleep?:

At Elzee Photography, the comfort and safety of your newborn is our top priority. If your baby does not fall asleep after 45 minutes of trying, we may need to reschedule your session for a later date. This is because it is not possible to continue the session while the baby is not asleep and awake. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your understanding.


What days does Elzee Photography do Newborn sessions?:

At Elzee Photography, we offer newborn photography sessions from Monday through Friday at 10:00am. We do not offer sessions on weekends. Please contact us to schedule your session.

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


Crystal is an amazing photographer. She has taken photos of my 3 kids and has captured our newborn and family pictures beautifully! Her attention to detail, patience and creativity are incredible!! Looking forward to working with Elzee photography again soon. -Carmen Pages


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
