Ella Jaymes Photography offers newborn portrait sessions using studio light. Maternity sessions are also offered on location at a local destination of your choice.

When considering Ella Jaymes Photography please inquire in advance of your desired date. The best time to contact me for a newborn session is before you have your baby. We will add you to our schedule around your due date. Once your baby arrives, we will figure out the best time to schedule your session.

Cash, PayPal and Personal Checks are Accepted!

  • Session fee is due at the time of booking your session to save your session time and date.
  • All session fees are non-refundable but can be transferred if you need to reschedule your portrait session due to illness or weather.
  • Payment plans available prior to your due date
  • Travel fees may apply.
  • We reserve the right to use your images for marketing and promotional purposes, unless you specifically request removal of the photo.


Newborn sessions typically last 3 hours and are for infants less than two weeks old. From our experience we have found that babies usually do better when they are between 8-10 days old. They seem to have figured out their schedule with sleeping and feeding and don't mind us messing with them as much.

We have a full assortment of hand crafted newborn hats and props available that we use to give the photos unique character.

Packages start at $600 and include digitals, Contact for more info.
