Babies change and grow so quickly, but timeless newborn images last a lifetime

Nothing will compare to the love you feel for your baby. And that love deserves to be captured forever.

I'll create stunning photos and artwork of your little one that will hold everlasting value and be cherished for generations to come through a stress-free newborn photography experience.

As a Minneapolis Newborn Photographer, I'd be honored to capture and preserve all the little details of your new baby and the precious moments shared by you and your family.

Newborn Session Information

The Newborn Portrait Process

My goal is to make this a simple, easy, and fun process from booking your newborn session to having your final images in your hands and on your walls. Here is what you can expect when you reserve your portrait session.

Step 1


Simply fill out the contact form to get in touch. We can chat through email or by phone and discuss the details of your newborn photography session.

Once your session is booked, you'll receive a link to an online client portal and a Session Planning Guide, so you'll be fully prepared before your session day.

Step 2


It's your baby's big day! Your newborn session will take place at my studio or in your home, depending on the type of session you book.

If you're coming to the studio, you just need to bring the baby and the diaper bag and I'll take care of the rest while you get to relax.

Step 3


7-14 days after your session, you'll receive an email with a link to your online gallery. From here you'll watch a beautiful slideshow of your images and choose your Digital Image Package.

Packages contain a set amount of digital images and a complimentary store credit, which can be used towards heirloom artwork and albums to enjoy forever!

"These photos are absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much, I am so happy we were able to get in with you! Absolutely thrilled! You did an amazing shoot, everyone I show them to melts. Going to be difficult to choose a print, I could put them all up! Probably wouldn't have the wall space though!"

Don't worry, Mama! I've got you covered.

maternity and newborn photography studio minneapolis mn 1

01 The studio is stocked full of beautiful wraps, backdrops, buckets, baskets, headbands, bonnets, and more. I also provide diapers, wipes, and pacifiers for your convenience.

02I provide maternity dresses and baby outfits that are available at the studio in case you forget something at home, or just want to try something new.

03 With many years of early childhood education and 12+ years photographing newborns and babies, I have special skills to make even the gassiest newborns settle and crankiest babies smile. 

04Acne, hair fly-aways, under eye bags? Not in your photos! I can make even the most tired and sleep-deprived mamas look radiant in their photos!

05 Worried your man-friend or husband won't have a good time? No need to worry. With two older brothers, a husband, and a teenage son, I think I can handle him.

About Alicea - Meet Your Minneapolis Newborn Photographer

I'm Alicea, your Minneapolis Newborn Photographer, known for being fun-loving, overly optimistic, and a bit sentimental.

It brings me immense joy to capture these precious and fleeting moments for you and your loved ones. As a fellow parent, I understand the chaotic and crazy nature of this phase in life, but also how quickly it passes.

It feels like time goes into hyperdrive once you have a baby. You'll find yourself longing for the days when your newborn fit perfectly in your arms, sleeping peacefully, or when you could effortlessly toss your 6-month-old baby in the air.

Before you know it, they're off to kindergarten or high school, just like my little one.

Together we'll document these precious moments so that you'll never forget them.

I can't wait to hear from you!
