a newborn Experience in southern oregon

Besides getting married, having a new baby is one of the biggest milestones in your life. How do you want to remember these early days? We will schedule your session when your baby is 5-16 days old. Your session will take place at my studio located in Rogue River, Oregon. I use only high-quality props that are made custom for newborn photographers. I have hours of training in posing safety and creating a workflow that is comfortable for you and your newborn.

I love styling each session around the colors of your home or nursery so that when you are ready to pick your prints they will look beautiful on your walls. Our session will include lots of swooning over your tiny babe. I will be sure to get all the details so you can remember just how tiny they used to be. From tiny baby hands to rosebud lips, I've got all the details covered.

I loved you from the very start. You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun. You’re part of me, my little one.


Send me a message through my contact form and let's start the conversation about your perfect session. I want to hear it all. When you are due, who will be photographed? Ask me anything. I am happy to answer any questions you may have. Based on your due date we can schedule a tentative session date. Your paid session fee will ensure a date on my calendar. Once your baby is born, we will touch base to determine if our date still works and adjust it as needed.

1. Say Hello

2. guides and questionairs

Once we've got your session on my calendar we can plan all the fun details! We can plan color schemes based on your home's décor. I will work with you to select the best wardrobe options. I will also advise you on how to prep before and during your session. I will send you a prep guide as well as a questionnaire so must questions all be answered within this step. Remember you can ask me anything throughout our time together! 

Leading up to your session, send me an email or give me a call if you have any questions. Send me pictures of your home and family so I can get a feel of who you are and when sets will flow best for you. I will be with you every step of the way. My priority is to ensure this is a seamless and enjoyable experience for you.

3. ask me Anything

Now is your time to shine! You can enjoy your session, knowing that all the details have been taken care of. Snuggle your newborn, look lovingly into your partner's eyes, I am here to capture the beautiful bond of your new family. Don’t worry, I will help to pose you naturally and prompt you so that you don’t feel awkward or alone!

Our session will be as relaxed as possible. If your baby needs nursing breaks or becomes fussy, don't sweat it. I will make sure we let your baby lead us to what they need throughout your session. I usually spend between 2-3 hours with my newborn families. I will be working with a natural flow that will ensure we have a successful session and ensure you receive a beautiful gallery of images to choose from. 

4. Session day!

This is the exciting part! Session galleries are usually ready to view within one week. I try to get them out as quickly as possible. I will send you a private gallery to view your session images. You will be able to select your favorites and choose a collection according to your needs. 

This is also the time where you can use your complimentary artwork credit to select which beautiful images you would like displayed in your home.

Katie was amazing! She was so responsive when trying to book and very easy to work with! She was able to get me in on short notice which I really appreciated because my lack of planning was in no way her fault and yet she still made it work! My newborn was a little older than standard for a newborn shoot so she was a bit more awake and alert. Katie is the baby whisperer and was able to calm her down and get her to sleep multiple times, all while posing her and switching up outfits. To say I was impressed is an understatement. I would highly highly recommend her to anyone looking for newborn photos! Her studio is beautiful and the amount of colors and accessories she has is unbelievable! 10000% worth the investment

  Katie has taken my maternity pictures and just took my sons newborn pictures! She is a wizard both in the studio and out on location. She has extreme attention to detail and watching her during the newborn session has left me in awe of her persistence and quick and gentle hands her sets are beautiful, classy and elegant, 10/10 would hire her again!

   Katie is absolutely amazing!! I am so glad she was recommended to us, I was super stressed out because my son came a little earlier than expected & we didn’t have a photographer lined up but Katie was able to fit us in within a few days of his birth! Newborn shoots take a lot of love and patience and magic and Katie has all of those!! We had our older 2 sons with us and she was so patient with them as well!! I would recommend Katie over and over again!!!

 Katie did such a wonderful job with our maternity and newborn pictures. During the maternity pictures she made my husband and I feel so comfortable and helped us to pose and get perfect angles. For the newborn photo shoot, she worked so well with our little girl to help her stay calm, asleep and just look adorable! Katie has so much patience and is so sweet, we will for sure be going back to her in the future for family pictures we highly recommend her for anyone who needs pictures, especially newborn, she went above and beyond to capture our sweet little girl!

I won a photography session during one of Katie’s giveaways, I ended up using it for my maternity photos. She had me come to her studio to try on dresses, she was so nice and easy to talk to, she made me feel like we had already known each other. When we did my maternity photos with my husband and three children, she was so good with them and made them feel comfortable, and my photos were amazing! I liked her style so much that I had her take photos this summer of my four children and they turned out really wonderful, even though my two year old was not in the mood for having his pictures taken I most definitely recommend Katie Anne Photography for all of your photography needs!

My family and I had the best time doing our family/maternity shoot with Katie. She is amazing and made us feel so comfortable. My kids are a little rowdy and crazy but she captured them being themselves and it was the best experience. We cannot wait to welcome our 3rd baby and do a newborn shoot with her. Highly recommend for anyone looking for pictures you will not be disappointed!

I can't recommend Katie enough! I was so in love with the maternity photos she took for us that I knew without a doubt she was who I wanted to take my daughters Newborn photos. She is charismatic, kind, and understanding which put my anxiety at ease. If you are looking for an excellent family photographer definitely go with Katie Elder!
