“The amazing thing about becoming a parent is that you will never again be your own first priority.”

– Olivia Wilde

The newborn phase is a very, very short time in your baby’s life. Within 10 days it is all over and most of the time you cannot recall much of it. Never again will your little baby be able to curl up and stay asleep in this position while we are photographing it.  It will mean so much to you when you look back at just how your tiny little one fit snugly into your arms and how it’s minute feet and hands looked in your hands.  

Studio or Home

I have a dedicated beautiful white newborn studio. My studio is in a in a safe security complex and there is enough space for your partners and older siblings to hang around.

A lifestyle type newborn session at home it can easily be done if your home or nursery has good light. These images may be more meaningful for you later on. I find that people with older siblings often prefer their sessions at their home or their parents home. With my background in wedding photography I am able to adjust my photography to what is on hand.


Wherever and however you decide to have your newborn session is up to you. I will make sure that you have beautiful images showing the love and connection between your tiny little baby and its new family. I believe in a classic approach with newborns, combining beautiful light, love and connection. It will never date and is always the most meaningful. 

How I work

I sell my newborn images per image in packages. You will have a viewing session where I present all the images to you on a screen and you can choose the images you like.

Lets meet

Do come and meet me during your pregnancy, so that I can show you the options at my studio or that we can discuss how to do your newborn session at home. All my newborn packages include a complementary mini studio maternity shoot.

Dear newborn Parents  

Congratulations with your little one, it is truly God’s greatest gift.  

The ideal time, for me, to photograph your newborn baby is about at day 5. Mom’s milk has arrived; baby can get a full belly of milk and settle well. Up to 10 days newborns are floppy like the baby in the image below in her dad’s arms. They sleep deeper and their little bodies are easy to shape and to mold. The best time for a newborn shoot.

After 10 days they stretch themselves out. Baby becomes more alert and is easily woken up, like the little girl looking at her her mom in the image at the below.  

A newborn shoot can take up to 3 hours. I let baby set the pace. Meeting up before the shoot is advised in order to be prepped ahead of time on what to wear and how to prepare baby to optimize sleepiness and making sure we are on the same page regarding styling and colouring.  

My studio’s blankets, wraps and throws are made from organic cotton, linen, lambs wool, cashmere and alpaca that feels soft against baby’s skins. Natural fabrics with organic textures that photographs beautifully. I believe in photographing newborns in a soft and natural way with props kept to minimum to achieve a timeless look and feel.

Love Karin.
