What a joy it is to celebrate new life, your growing family and the beginning of your journey into motherhood! 

That is why we wholeheartedly believe that these are so much more than just photographs. When you commission Crystal Lee to create custom art for your home, you are giving yourself the gift of being able to re-live and enjoy this beautiful beginning anytime you want.

"As a new parent, there are so many things to worry about. Everything is as new for us as it is our little blessing. As soon as we walked in the door, 

our fears and stress melted away."

- Samantha, Mom to Ann Marie & Ford

The process:

1. Consultation & Styling

First, we will have a discovery call so that I can learn more about your family and create a session that is as unique as you are. We'll talk about how you want to see your finished portraits in your home and the things that are most important to you.

2. Your newborn Photoshoot

The big day is here! All of your sets will be fully designed and set up before you arrive at the studio. Not only do we have a vast selection of props and backdrops, we are also fully prepared with all of the amenities a new mom and her growing baby need.

3. Image Reveal & Ordering

Its all led to this... the big reveal! You will return to the studio a few days after your session for a private presentation of your portraits. This is when you'll select your favorites and make all final purchase decisions on your printed art pieces and digital images. 

From bump to baby to birthday... 

we've got you covered.

What makes us different?

Choosing the right photographer for your baby’s first portraits is an important decision and our studio is often one of the very first places that parents bring their newborn. I fully understand the gravity of that decision and I want you to know that you are bringing your little one to a safe space that has been designed (and cleaned!) with you in mind.
