I'm so glad you're here! I'm Alicea, a Minneapolis, MN based Newborn, Baby and Maternity Photographer. Alicea Rose Photography was established in 2011 after combining my passion for documenting moments through photography and my love of working with babies. As a mom I know all too well how fast your pregnancy goes by and how quickly babies grow and change. I'm here to help you capture your pregnancy, your baby's tiny newborn details and their milestones during their first year of life, so you'll never forget them.
I've photographed hundreds of newborns, babies and families all over Minnesota and Wisconsin for over 10 years. I have extensive experience in safety, handling and posing newborns, so your baby and your memories will be in the very best hands. It's been an honor providing this service to all of my amazing families and I can't wait to meet yours, too!
Of all the things you put on your baby registry wish list, your maternity, newborn and baby photography session should be the most important. Why? Because the photos taken during this time will be the only lasting pieces from your baby's first year.
Your baby will outgrow their clothing, crib, books and toys. Before you know it your newborn will be all grown up. I know it's hard to imagine now, but trust me; it goes by so fast (too fast). Schedule your maternity, newborn and baby photos today! You don't want to miss out on capturing these moments, so you'll always remember.

Book your Minneapolis newborn photography session with Alicea Rose Photography today. I prefer to photograph newborns between the ages of 5-12 days. This is when newborn babies are their sleepiest and most pliable for posing. My schedule books several weeks or months in advance, so it's best to contact me in your 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to reach out to me and I can let you know what dates I have open following your due date. If you've already delivered your baby, please contact me ASAP as I may have a last minute opening. I will work with older newborns up to 4 weeks if that is the case.
You can decide if a newborn photography session package or First Year Baby Plan is best for you. I offer simple all-inclusive session pricing, which includes the edited images from your session with rights to print your images when you want and where you want. All newborn photography sessions take place in my private studio in Golden Valley, MN where we'll have access to all of my newborn photo props. The studio is easily accessible from any where in the Twin Cities metro area; Plymouth, Maple Grove, Edina, St. Louis Park, Brooklyn Park, Blaine, Coon Rapids, Roseville, Woodbury and Minneapolis.
I love being a Minneapolis Baby Photographer! Babies are great at any stage, but my favorites are the 6 months to 8 months "sitter stage" and baby's first birthday. The Cake Smash session is a fun way to capture this big milestone in your baby's life. The Cake Smash portion of the session is added on to the end of the one year photo shoot, so baby can get as messy as they want.
To document your baby's growth during their first year I offer a single Baby Milestone Session or First Year Baby Plan. Minneapolis baby photography sessions are all-inclusive. For one price you'll receive my time and talent during the photo shoot as well as the edited digital images. Baby milestone sessions take place at my photography studio in Golden Valley, MN or on location at a beautiful park in Plymouth, Maple Grove or Roseville. It's fun to get outdoors for your baby's portraits and family photos, too!
It's best to book your Minneapolis Maternity Photography session in your 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. We'll schedule your session date in your 7th or 8th month when you have a nice round belly, but haven’t become too uncomfortable. I want you to look and feel your best for your pregnancy photos! I love taking maternity photos outdoors at sunset, however my studio is always available for a more private session. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to reach out to me and I can let you know what dates I have open. I typically have more openings for maternity photography photos since I don't schedule newborn or baby sessions in the evenings.
I'm more than happy to photograph just your Maternity Session, but when you book a Newborn Session and Maternity Session together, you'll receive a discount. Maternity Photography Sessions are also included in the Deluxe First Year Baby Plan. First Year Baby Plans are a great way to document your pregnancy, the newborn phase and your baby's milestones until their first birthday at a discounted rate.
