Thank you for stopping by! Valerie Kay Photography is a boutique portrait studio. We specialize in Maternity, Newborn, and the Milestones of baby's first year & beyond.


Congratulations on the upcoming arrival of your little one! Newborn portraits capture all of those fleeting, tiny little nuanced details of your precious new baby. Here are some of the important details about your newborn session with Valerie Kay Photography.


The best time to photograph your newborn is between 6 and 20 days. This is the sleepiest, squishiest time. Most newborn session poses require baby to be in a very deep sleep and these first weeks is the optimal time. For this reason it is important to schedule your Newborn Session as far in advance as possible. My schedule often fills months in advance so in order to book your preferred date you should contact me early. If you are interested in maternity portraits you should inquire about booking a Maternity Session or the Belly to Baby Plan as early as the end of your first trimester.
