"Alyssa is so gentle and patient with her littlest clients. I never felt rushed while we waited for my baby to settle into place or he got hungry. She made us all feel so welcome in her studio space. The final result of photos took my breath away and it was so hard to choose my favorites. I cannot wait to return for 1 year photos, will definitely be going back to Stickan Photography." -Stephanie-

I have taken numerous courses on the physiology of newborns, how to keep them from overheating, how to position their heads and arms to prevent asphyxiations, and keep them safe at all times.
I take my job very seriously, and that includes doing all I can to protect the littlest of my clients.
Newborn sessions typically take place within the first 7-14 weeks after birth when baby is still nice and sleepy. I have families contact me once baby has arrived and at that point we schedule a session time that works for you.
Of course, should you need your session to take place after baby is 2 weeks old, we can make that work too.
You can look through my outfits and props for other sessions while you're at your newborn session. We can talk through what another session could look like. I love working with returning clients. Your best option would be to look at our membership option!
If I have an opening in my calendar I am happy to accommodate. Most often, however, I am booked out months in advance. I absolutely love taking photos of newborns and will do everything I can to fit you in!
Absolutely!! The studio is filled with an ever evolving stock of backdrops, blankets, wraps, buckets, headbands/bows, hats, outfits, etc to be used during your session. Everything offered in my studio has been proved to photograph beautifully... most of the options are handmade by talented designers who put time and effort into ensuring the item is perfect for your baby's session.
I also have a closet full of beautiful outfit options for mom and young siblings as well. Also make sure to look at my styling guide for other ideas.
We can absolutely include yourself, your partner, and other children in your session. Please let me know who you wish you include when I get in touch to arrange your session, as it does require additional planning.
At a newborn session, you’ll want to plan on someone driving young children separately, or coming back to pick up mom and baby, due to the length of a newborn session.
"Alyssa was very professional and welcoming! The studio was organized, well-lit and decorated, and she had so many outfits and props available! She worked so well with my daughter to make her smile and giggle. Alyssa’s pictures were amazing! Literally so beautiful. I loved how she showed me a partial edit on a few during the shoot just to get a preview of what would be sent later. Her photos were pristine." -Bordeaux Crouse-
