Hi! I'm Alicea. I'm a Minnesota native, wife, mom, dog mom and professional Maple Grove, MN Maternity and Newborn Photographer. For over 11 years I've photographed hundreds of newborns, babies and families from the Twin Cities and western Wisconsin. Next to being a daycare teacher, it's the best job I've ever had!
I know finding a Maternity and Newborn Photographer can be a daunting task. Rest assured, I have extensive experience in safety, handling and posing newborns and lots of experience working with older babies, too. Your baby and your memories will always be in the very best hands.
I'm covid-19 vaccinated and boosted and continue to wear a mask in the studio. Your family's safety is always my #1 priority!
Newborn Photography is best done between the ages of 5-14 days for posed newborn portraits. This is when newborn babies are their sleepiest and most flexible for posing. Lifestyle newborn photoshoots can take place anytime within your baby's first 4 weeks after delivery. 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 contact 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.
Baby Photography can be done at any age or stage in your baby's life. My personal 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. My baby milestone portrait sessions can take place in my studio, outdoors or even in your own home.
Maternity Photography sessions are best done in your 2nd trimester of your pregnancy. We'll schedule your session date between 28-34 weeks 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. At my studio, we can even go outside for some images as there is tall grasses and wildflowers behind the building. My availability fluctuates, so feel free to contact me and I can let you know what dates I have open.
Newborn sessions can be done in my private newborn photography studio in Brooklyn Park or in the comfort of your own home.
Baby milestone, family and maternity sessions can be done in the studio or at another location of your choice.
My pricing is all-inclusive, which means the session fee and digital images are included for one price.
With every session you'll also have the option to purchase prints, wall art and albums.
Sessions start at $495. Click below for more information.
