First of all, congratulations! Whether you landed on this page because you’re pregnant, your wife is pregnant, you’re about to be a grandma or an aunt or an uncle, hooray! A new little bundle is about to enter your world and life will never be the same.
That sweet newborn baby will never be
so little ever again...
and you’ll never again look so young
(or tired….until you have another baby that is).
Our newborn sessions take place in our SE Boise Lifestyle Studio. What's a lifestyle studio you ask? It's the best of both worlds in our opinion! A relaxed home like atmosphere with controlled lighting... and that you don't have to clean! Read more about our studio space.
Newborn Sessions are usually done between 6-21 days old for the best chance of sleepy snuggly womb poses. However, we truly believe there is no "wrong" time to photograph your baby and are happy to welcome older newborns into our studio space.
The Ultimate Post Partum Date!
(Yes that's really a thing) Show up ready to be pampered from start to finish with some amazing souvenirs from the experience (your artwork!)
We take this time to do portraits of the whole family, sibling shots, mom + baby and dad + baby. Grandparents are also welcome to join!
Sit back and relax, feed the baby and yourself!
During this time we process images and get them ready for the big screen.
See your images that same day, choose your favorites and order prints and products.
We'll show you wall gallery designs, album layouts, newborn announcements & more.
You only buy what you absolutely love.
You've chosen your favorites and the rest is all us!
Go home and take a well deserve nap while we get your images cleaned up and your keepsake products ordered.
Put Joy on Your Walls
We believe that the memories you are investing in should be seen and enjoyed every single day!
Most of our clients choose one of our collection packages with the choice of displaying your favorites in an Heirloom Album or as matted portraits in a 11×14 Reveal Box.
In addition to our collections we offer custom wall galleries designed specifically for your home
using our unique software to show you choices to scale on your very own walls.
You only purchase what you LOVE and every image purchased, no matter the format, arrives with it’s matching digital file
to share with family and friends
The design & ordering appointment is hands down our favorite part of the entire process. This is where we show you your images for the first time and help guide you in choosing the very best keepsake products for your home and family.
We believe this is the part that absolutely shouldn't be skipped and sets our services apart from other photographers! We begin with a small slideshow with ideas for wall galleries, albums and newborn announcements and then go through each image one by one choosing the very best of the best.

As soon as you see a (+) sign! We recommend booking your photos 2-3 months BEFORE your due date to ensure availability. However, if your baby has already been born we will do our best to get you in as soon as possible.
When should I schedule my newborn photos?
How do I schedule newborn photos when I don’t know when they will actually arrive?
Yes! While we do book up in advance we are happy to squeeze newborn sessions into our schedule whenever possible. Older babies tend to be a little more alert and may not go into the sleepy poses typical of a 1-3 week old, but instead we can get some beautiful photos of them with their eyes wide open, or even with one of those first smiles! We truly believe there is no wrong time to photograph your baby.
My baby has already been born, can I still schedule newborn photos?
We understand that stuff comes up and will do our very best to get you rescheduled whenever possible. We ask that you please use the “better safe than sorry” mindset and reschedule if you or another family member is sick.
Your baby's safety is our number one priority. We thoroughly clean and sanitize between sessions, wear masks the entire time we're holding your baby and are safety certified in both newborn photography posing as well as infant CPR.
Yes! We encourage older siblings, mom & dad and even grandparents to take part in our sessions and do not charge extra for additional people. Please just let us know in advance who to expect so we can plan accordingly.
What if I need to reschedule?
Can the whole family be included?
Yes, this is tricky! But all our newborn clients are in the same boat so we are constantly shuffling. We take a limited number of newborn bookings each month to ensure that we will be able to get you onto the schedule within 1-3 weeks after your baby is born. You will have a tentative session date about a week after your due date that can be adjusted as necessary. We ask that you keep us in the loop on baby’s arrival so we can plan accordingly.
How long does the session last?
Our classic newborn sessions last between 2-3 hours with lots of stops for cuddles and snacks. If you choose to upgrade to our luxury newborn experience session we will shoot from 10-12:30, provide a catered lunch and view your images immediately following your session.
Our luxury newborn experience, studio maternity sessions and milestone sessions now include a same day viewing session! For our outdoor sessions we will schedule a time to view your images within 1-2 weeks of your session.
How long does it take to see my images?
Wait, Viewing Session? What’s that?
Your images are finalized 7-10 days after your ordering appointment and sent via web gallery for your approval. Once product orders have been placed, we generally have albums and collection boxes ready for you in about 3-4 weeks. Please allow 8-10 weeks for custom framing and wall art. Once everything arrives we will let you know that it is ready for pickup at the Glean Studio.
Once my order is placed how long does it take to arrive?
All images that you purchase get basic color correction and cleanup for stray hairs, tiny blemishes, baby acne etc. If you would like us to do anything else, say the word! Extensive retouching is available for an additional fee.
Yes, all of our collections are available with or without the physical products. While we highly encourage creating a keepsake art piece for your child, it is ultimately your decision.
Our base newborn session includes 5 digital images + matching 5x7 prints. If that's all you want and need, that's ok by us! We want you to walk away with only the artwork you absolutely love and cherish.
How much editing do you do to the images?
Is there a minimum purchase required?
Can I just buy digital files?
A viewing session or reveal session is when we meet with you and any other household decision makers to look at your images together for the first time and place your artwork order. It takes place at the Glean studio or at your own home by special request. At this session you’ll see the products we offer, choose your favorite images, request any changes you might have and we’ll place the order the very same day with cash, check or card.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We are happy to work with your budget and create a payment plan that works for your family. All physical products are delivered after the payment plan is complete.
