My goal as your Austin newborn photographer is to capture the milestones in your life so you can treasure them forever. Imagine a few years down the road flipping through your custom newborn photography album with your growing child on your lap… telling them all the best stories from when they were a newborn. Think about what it would be like to see a beautiful photograph of your tiny newborn snuggled in your arms hanging in your home years from now.  The sweet little memories that the mind so easily forgets with time are persevered forever on the printed image. They are worth all the time and effort it takes to create them. As a full service Austin newborn photographer, I’m here to guide you every step of the way. 

1: Consultation

Your family is unique so your photography session should be too! I want to hear all about your personal style and preferences so I can understand your vision and create something just for you. We’ll also discuss products so you can start thinking about how you’d like to display your newborn portraits.

2: The Session

This is where the fun happens. The studio is full of outfits, props, and accessories for baby so you don’t need to provide anything. I’ll have everything laid out and ready to go before you arrive. All you need to do is sit back and watch me work my magic.

3: Reveal & Ordering

Everyone’s favorite part! We’ll sit down and sort through the best images from your session together. We can look at designing a custom album or creating wall art to tell your story. All printed images come with the matching digital file.

4. Finished Product

After your appointment I will expertly retouch all of the images you’ve chosen. Your prints and products will be ordered and the matching digital images will be available to download within two weeks. When your artwork arrives we will arrange pick up or delivery.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

client reviews

“Carolyn was absolutely incredible with our baby boy. Prior to our session she reached out asking for any and all ideas we had, asked for pictures of his nursery to get theme ideas, and sent us detailed information to help us get him comfortable prior to the shoot which was really helpful since we are first time parents. Watching her work with him and pose him was such an art! Our photos came out absolutely incredible. We received so many options to choose from for photo packages. The photos are so beautiful and captured the sweet sleepy newborn essence of our baby boy. If you’re considering a newborn photographer, look no more! Book her now!”


“Carolyn did such an amazing job with our newborn photos!  She was both professional and fun to work with.  She did a great job staging the photos and helping us put some personal touches into our pictures.  I really can’t say enough good things about our experience working with Carolyn.  The pictures we received, both digital and prints, were beautiful.  We have future shoots already planned.  I very highly recommend working with her.”


“Carolyn is wonderful and the only photographer we’ve used since our first child was born in 2019. Her attention to detail is spot on and she is so patient and accommodating!  We treasure all of the moments she has captured for us and highly recommend her and her studio!”


“Absolutely THE best photo experience I’ve had! Four kids later I have never been more happy with the whole session and the results of the photos! Carolyn was completely professional, warm, and welcoming the entire time. Took care of my newborn during the session with care and ALL the photos came out wonderfully!!”


“Carolyn has been taking pictures of our growing family from the start, and we have been absolutely thrilled with the incredible photos she has provided us with! She is wonderful with kids, and takes the highest quality, beautiful pictures imaginable. Would absolutely recommend again and again!”
