About Alicea

Alicea is a Professional Photographer specializing in newborn, baby and maternity portraiture out of Minneapolis, MN. She lives in Maple Grove with her husband, son and rescue pup, Masha. Her hobbies include reading, photography, gardening, trivia games and on occasion jamming to 90's rock and hip-hop; mostly while cleaning the house.

This family of three came to my studio for their studio newborn photography session with their brand-new baby girl. I just love these images! In this post, I’ll explain below what the advantages of studio newborn photography are with Alicea Rose Photography!

Convenient Location in the Northwest Metro of the Twin Cities

My studio is located in the northwest suburbs of Minneapolis, MN in Brooklyn Park. I’m just off Hwy 694 and Boone Ave. Or off Hwy 169 and the Brooklyn Blvd exit, depending on which direction you’re coming from. It’s just a 20-minute drive from downtown Minneapolis. It’s a wonderful and safe space to create beautiful and timeless memories of your newborn’s first days.

My building is located in a quiet business park and is directly across from the Osseo Learning Center. The business park also happens to have (in a building right nearby) my favorite distillery and “speakeasy” bar, Skaalvenn Distillery. Do yourself a favor and make reservations (after the baby is born, of course). Enjoy a fun and unique date night experience with your honey. They make amazing cocktails!

All the Props are Provided for You

Everything we need to create gorgeous newborn photography artwork for your home and timeless memories for your family is right at my Minneapolis Newborn Photography Studio. I provide soft wraps in lots of textures and colors, beautiful matching bonnets and headbands, and unique wooden props that are sure to fit your clean, simple, and timeless style. I also provide diapers, wipes, and pacifiers for the baby if needed.

Calm and Relaxing Environment

At the studio, you’ll find it to be a calm and relaxing environment. During the posing phase of the newborn photography session, the main lights will be shut off while just the modeling light of my strobe is on. This light is a gentle and low light leaving giving a calming feel to the room.

A space heater will be running to keep the room warm enough for your baby. The space heater also provides a little bit of white noise, which can help keep your baby asleep.

This whole combination of low lighting, a warm room, and a bit of white noise keeps the environment calm and relaxing for the baby and you as well. I won’t take it personally if you fall asleep during the session.

Great Lighting is Key to Great Photos

Another great reason to come to the studio for your newborn photography session is lighting. Lighting is key to great photographs and not everyone has great lighting in their home. You need large windows that face north or west to provide the same quality of light that my strobes have in the studio.

Strobe lighting creates crisp, clean, and sharp images that will result in the highest quality images for your prints, albums, and artwork for your home. I’m also able to control the quality and quantity of light, which is harder to do with natural light.

The lighting in my studio is flattering to everyone and I know just how to pose you in it!

Snacks Are Provided for You, Your Partner, and Kids

Sometimes my busy mamas don’t always have time to eat before coming to the studio, so I provide snacks for you! There are also vending machines on-site and restaurants just 5 minutes away in downtown Maple Grove; in case you get a little extra hungry. Having your partner go on a coffee run also gives them something to do during the 2-3 hour session if they get bored (it’s been known to happen).

So, are you ready to book your Studio Newborn Photography Session?

Don’t forget to book your session in your 2nd trimester as my schedule is often booked 2 months in advance. Currently, I’m booked through the end of October and have limited availability in November and December. I’d love to work with you, so reach out today!
