Newborn Photography Studio | Tacoma Newborn Photographer

As a Seattle & Tacoma Newborn Photographer, documenting the love & connection between a mother & her baby is my love language. My most favorite moments are in the inbetweens & little fading details.

Having a baby is a whirlwind experience. While it’s beautiful & more love-filled than you can ever imagine, it’s also stressful and takes a toll, both mentally and physically. I promise I understand. I have purposefully built my business around alleviating stressors to have a portrait experience where you feel comfortable & rejuvenated. 

Choosing a photography studio for newborn portraits is an easy decision, especially with siblings. 

The studio provides… 

  • A safe space for siblings to play in sight, when not needed during the session
  • Availability during (almost) all weather
  • Minimal setup and white walls to ensure your connection is the focus of every single image
  • A carefully curated client closet in a range of sizes and style to choose from
  • Backups of everything you could need in case of an emergency

The process of a newborn session with Salt and Ink

When you reserve your newborn photos with me at Salt And Ink Photography, we’ll settle on a date around your due date, with the flexibility to change once your baby has arrived. As a luxury photographer, I limit the number of sessions per month to ensure everyone gets the level of attention & detail they deserve from me, so it’s important to reserve your date early. 

Once your contract and reservation fee are taken care of, you are officially on the calendar! It’s so exciting to be your Tacoma Newborn Photographer!

We will have a consultation to talk through your vision and on the day of your session, you will begin with hair and makeup, then select what you want to wear and dress the family. The session will include both candid & posed portraits to create a gallery that tells your family’s story and includes all of the details.

A few weeks after your session, we’ll schedule your viewing and ordering appointment, where you’ll see your gallery and choose your favorite images to purchase and turn into artwork for your home. 

Get in touch to reserve your newborn session this year. 

Newborn portraits are typically reserved at the start of the second trimester for 7-14 days after your baby arrives. 


The first step in reserving your portrait session is to send an inquiry through my website. Simply fill out my contact form and I’ll be in touch with your investment guide & to schedule a consultation!
