Having a new baby is one of the absolute most amazing experiences in life! My goal is to create beautiful, timeless imagery, that perfectly captures all the sweetness of your new little one. It can be an overwhelming time as a new parent, but when you arrive at my studio, it’s your time to relax while I work my magic.

Having worked with hundreds of newborns, as well as teaching other photographers the art of newborn posing, I pride myself in newborn safety and skillfully posing your sweet baby. I am a mom of three myself! I also have a great collection of props, bonnets, and headbands to style your session with, a mix of beautiful rustic props, and soft textures to showcase your baby.

There is never a session that I am not in awe in the miracle of new life. The newborn stage changes oh so quickly, and can be gone before you know it.. in a matter of days. Let me capture that tiny face of your newest family member, just as they are, brand new.

Newborn Safety

Many untrained photographers do not understand the risks associated with newborn photography and have not received proper training. Focal has verified that Christin is trained and adheres to the highest standards of newborn safety.

What to Expect: Christin's Newborn Sessions

Once you schedule in your baby’s due date you secure a place on my calendar. When your little one arrives, simply contact me at your earliest convenience, and we will finalize a date for when baby is approximately 5-14 days old. This ensures that they are still quite sleepy and used to being curled up just like in the womb. I also send out a final prep guide and details form, with some tips on how to help with a sleepy babe and for the session to run smoothly.

During the session, this is your time to relax. The studio will be warm and cozy for baby, with soothing music and dim lighting. It’s fully stocked with supplies for mama and babe, and a coffee and tea station. I also have some outfit options for mom, so no need to panic about what to wear. For those bringing an older sibling along, there is a little kids area with toys, colouring and books to help keep them occupied.

After the session, you can expect to receive your gallery in approximately 3-4 weeks. This timeline allows me to not only edit to my style, but to take care of any of those little newborn skin issues like acne or dry skin, etc.

As a mother of three, I understand how fast childhood can fly by! My three littles are my world, and the importance of motherhood, and that wild love like no other is what inspires me. My favourite is to capture all the love and moments that are important to your family. You have a legacy to build, let me help document it. Through creating connections in candid poses, bringing out genuine smiles, or delicately posing your new baby, my job is to guide you and help bring those true connections and moments to light.

Whether we are shooting at the ocean, a field or mountain, or in a forest, I am constantly chasing that beautiful light. Soft golden sunsets, or the wild west coast wind and drama, I will work with the elements to create beautiful portraits of your family. In studio I work within a calm and soothing environment and large soft box lighting, to achieve a lovely balance of shadow and highlights.
When we bring home a baby, we start counting in days, then weeks, then months, soon those months become years. We wish we could freeze time and the joy we share with our children, but years from now, your portraits will be what help you travel back in time to these moments again and again and again.

  • How can I book when I don’t know when my baby will be born?


    You can book your due date! This will secure a place on the calendar, and when your baby is born, just contact me and we will set your session date for when baby is approximately 5-14 days old. (scheduled c-sections, we can skip straight to booking the session date)

  • 
What if I have a c-section?

    If you have a c-section, I generally recommend we schedule you closer to the 14-18 days range. This gives you a chance to heal and ensure that you’re more comfortable during the session.

  • What if baby is premature, and spends time in the NICU, will they be too old?

    With preemie babies, the 5-14 day timeline is not a worry. We generally have until their adjusted age to work out a session date and ensure they are still nice and sleepy.

  • I am due with twins, is a session still the same?

    Absolutely! I will also have an assistant with me to ensure both babies are safely cared for at all times. The session will include shots of them together, as well as each on their own.

  • What do I need to bring to the session?

    Just yourselves! I have everything needed to style the session for baby, and I include some outfit suggestions for family poses in the prep guide that is emailed to you once baby is born, and the session date is scheduled.
