Welcome to my studio, The Flash Lady Photography, where I celebrate the miraculous beginning of new life. Nestled in the heart of Newington, CT, my beautiful studio is a sanctuary designed to capture the tender, fleeting moments of your newborn's early days. I understand the profound journey of motherhood and am here to preserve these precious memories with warmth and love. Unlock the magic of capturing precious moments with stress-free newborn photos.

I have proudly achieved the prestigious title of Master Newborn Photographer by NAPCP.

My Philosophy


At Flash Lady Photography, I believe that newborn photography is not just about taking pictures, but about telling stories that will be cherished for generations. My approach combines artistry with empathy, ensuring that each session is tailored to the unique personality and needs of your family. I am passionate about creating a safe, nurturing environment where your newborn's comfort is our top priority.

I have an 11-year-old daughter myself and have worked through all of these stages personally! I will do my best to answer questions, suggest local providers who can be helpful during this time, and ensure that we are not only creating beautiful newborn portraits, but heirlooms that you will always treasure.

The Newborn Photography Experience

Unsure where to start? Don't worry - here at The Flash Lady Photography, I take care of everything that you'll need to create beautiful newborn photos. All of the snuggly wraps, adorable outfits, petite headbands, warm hats, fluffy blankets, and quality backdrops are all made by hand by vendors all over the world just for newborn photography.

Before you arrive, we'll have set the temperature just right for the studio, and again in the workspace we'll be in, to ensure baby is comfortable and at a safe temperature they can regulate, monitored throughout. We'll talk before you arrive about desired colors, newborn props, or speciality items you'd like to incorporate.

We'll work through a variety of poses on a special newborn table before moving on to props, wraps, and finally together with parents and/or siblings. All sessions are baby-led and may incorporate different options depending on baby's needs and alertness. We encourage parents to relax while they are here, but are happy to answer questions or have you participate during the photoshoot. We want you to always know what is happening with your baby.

All posed newborn photography sessions are at my Newington, CT studio.

Newborn Sessions In the Studio

Newborn photography sessions are my specialty at my Newington, CT studio. I carefully craft customized scenes and materials in advance based on your style, ideas, and imagination. Capturing the essence of your newborn's first days is a unique experience that requires careful planning and attention to detail. I specialize in creating beautiful, timeless images that you will cherish for a lifetime. Our team is dedicated to ensuring that your newborn photography session is a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

For optimal scheduling, we recommend reaching out during your second trimester to discuss setting a due date and coordinating around it. Following the birth, we typically schedule a session within 8-14 days when the baby is still in a sleepy and flexible state.

Newborns change quickly as they grow. Their alertness increases, sleep cycles become lighter, and limbs strengthen. These changes make it important to capture their early moments. Newborn photography is typically done within the first 1-2 weeks, but it can be done up to 7 weeks old. Other milestone stages can also be considered for capturing memorable moments.

Newborn sessions typically last about 3 hours, allowing for feeding, changing, soothing, and even some adorable parent/sibling photos!

In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photo Sessions

Lifestyle Newborn Photography offers a serene and intimate option for those who prefer the comfort of their own home. With this approach, I bring my photography skills directly to you, capturing the genuine beauty of your family's everyday moments using natural light and settings. It's a wonderful way to turn your family's interactions into art that reflects the true essence of your bond.

For a Newborn Lifestyle photography session, I'll travel to your home and capture candid and natural moments of your family bonding with the new baby. This is a convenient option for families with older siblings who may feel more comfortable in their own environment. Various areas of the home, such as the nursery, living room, master bedroom, and well-lit spaces, are typically used for the photo session. Additional lighting equipment may also be brought along to enhance the photos.

During sessions at home, we will capture a mix of posed family portraits and candid, natural photos of you, the baby, and the special moments you share together. Please keep in mind that these sessions are focused on capturing authentic, in-the-moment images and do not include the traditional newborn posing, props, or setups commonly used in a studio setting. Pricing is also reflected as such. However, if you are interested in incorporating these elements, we can discuss the possibility during our planning process.

Frequently Asked Questions for Newborn Photography

At The Flash Lady Photography, I understand the importance of capturing the fleeting moments of newborn life, which is why I offer detailed and compassionate newborn photography services. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you plan for these precious sessions.

To ensure availability around your due date, I recommend contacting me during your second trimester. This early planning is especially important if you are considering maternity photos as well. Typically, newborn sessions are best held when your baby is between 8-14 days old, as they tend to be sleepier and more flexible during this time, which helps in capturing those serene and tender moments.

On the day of the shoot, Kristin made sure to create a comfortable and safe environment for my newborn. She was patient and gentle, and the end result was a beautiful set of photos that captured this special time in our lives.

The whole process, from deciding what we wanted creatively, to the studio experience, to reviewing proofs, to the quality and delivery of the final products, was smooth and easy. We really appreciated all the precautions she took for everybody's health, and we suspect she might have supernatural abilities.

We had the best experience working with Kristin! She had a huge variety of props, wraps, and accessories. There were so many amazing photos it was hard to choose the ones we wanted to be printed but she was so helpful in the decision making process.
