The simple answer is no! Absolutely not! Are there benefits to photographing an infant in the first 2 weeks of life? Absolutely. Are there benefits to photographing a 4 week old newborn baby? Definitely! As a Colorado Springs newborn photographer I get to see babies so often and it warms my heart. Typically my newborn photo sessions are take place in the first 2 weeks of life, but I will photograph newborns up to 6 weeks old. And honestly, I really enjoy capturing the 4-6 week age. You know those first sweet smiles that your baby gives you? The first signs of recognition and make you feel like something more than just a walking zombie from the loss of sleep. I get to capture those. In addition to being a newborn photographer I am a mom of 4 babies, my youngest being 2. It’s amazing how quickly they grow and you forget how little they once were. I remember that significance of that first smile. It makes everything worth it.

Newborn Pictures at One Month Old

If you want a lot of those sleepy newborn photos, I would highly recommend we plan your newborn session in the first 2 weeks of life. If you want a baby who is a little more interactive and can usually grab eye contact, one month old is perfect. Newborn photos are great up to 6 weeks old.

capture life as it is now

I love working with families who want to capture life as it is now. Because in the blink of an eye, “someday” becomes a year from now. Throughout the tiresome days, tiny but meaningful moments are happening within your family that you won’t want to miss out on capturing. Things you don’t know you’re missing are the things you’ll always want to remember. The kiddos grow so much year to year and it is important to capture them in this season of life, whatever season that might be.


“My husband and I are awkward, will you tell us what to do?” Of course! I don’t like to do unnatural or super posed shots, but I will give you some light direction on how to stand or position yourselves so there are no awkward photos. I’ll encourage kids to relax, play and snuggle up with mom and dad. Tickle fights, silly words, or big bear hugs happen on the regular to capture the most authentic and genuine smiles. Don’t worry I’ll let you know if you’re doing something funny with your hands, or have a goofy face. I’m here to capture joy while making sure you look good! 

Family Photgraphy



As a family photographer and a mom of 4 kids, I am drawn to those candid moments, but I understand that most clients want classic, look at the camera and smile shots, too. We will do a mixture of both styles, with various backgrounds so you have a variety of images to choose from in your final gallery. I know my favorites won’t always be your favorites. If you prefer more candid than posed, or vice versa, just let me know either at booking or at the start of your session and I’ll make sure I capture photos you will love and cherish. 

Hi, I’m Stephanie, your Colorado Springs family photographer

I’m so glad you’re here! I am a family and newborn photographer with over 10 years of experience specializing in family, maternity, birth, newborn photography and short films.

We probably have a lot in common. I am an Air Force wife and mother to 4 children(and 2 dogs). Most days feel long, but I know the years are short. I am just trying to slow down time and create joyful memories with my family. My mornings usually start with a kid or two waking me up. I start each morning with a cup of coffee. I think the outcome of my day solely depends on if I am able to finish my cup before it gets cold.
