In the beginning months of life, your newborn will
grow and change drastically. Capture your little angel
in a safe and comfortable environment so you can
remember exactly how little and fragile they are for
the rest of your life.
I have been a Quad city professional
photographer for four years and
have three kids of my own. I know the
most effective ways to work around a
newborn and their schedule. We’ll
make sure they are sleepy and ready
for your photoshoot
Fleeting • moments • captured
With such fragile bodies it is
my priority to keep babies
safe. Using our physical
support and some virtual
magic, we will make sure you
get adorable poses safely in a
warm and cozy environment.
With lack of sleep, it can be
difficult to remember every
moment of their brand new
baby. With a newborn
photoshoot, you can remember
every tiny detail of your
precious little one.
Many of my clients book in the second trimester and some as soon as they find out they are pregnant. The earlier, the better to ensure you get on the calendar. We will schedule your due date on the calendar. Baby's rarely come when they are due, so we will choose the date of your session based on my availability after your baby is born. Newborn session take place Monday - Friday starting at 9 or 10am as babies are more sleepy at that time!
The studio has a large assortment of quality props from all around the world! I have so many colors available to customize your newborn photo session. No need to bring any props.
Family photos are included in the Preferred and Precious Newborn Photography packages. We start off with family and sibling poses first. Once we are done with the family portion of the session, I ask that Dad to take the siblings to the park or have someone come pick up the children to allow a quiet environment for baby only pictures. Or if your kids are older, they can go back to school and Dad can go back to work.
Please do not hesitate to contact me, I have successfully photographed 3 month old babies with a newborn style session. The difference is they may not be comfortable with nude fabric poses and may be more awake. When babies are older, wrapped poses are my go-to and most babies love being all bundled up.
Majority of my work is done using wraps, knitted sleepers, or baby nude. After family pictures, I move to fabric poses with baby and then wrapped prop poses. Babies are only this little for a short time so, it's great to enjoy their tiny features with minimal distracting elements.
A Quad Cities Newborn photo session lasts one-three hours depending on the package chosen. Sessions take place Monday-Friday at 10am as babies tend to be more relaxed and sleepy at that time. It also allows time for feeding and changes if needed. If you would like more information, please fill out the contact form here.
Final edits include skin tone correction, skin smoothing, removing blemishes and flakes. Anything beyond regular edits will have an additional charge. Editing takes more time than the session itself and is more than just snapping a picture. It's the icing on the cake bringing your image to a creative artistic level. If you would like a digital backdrop, there is an additional charge as well.
Once you have filled out the contact form, we will set up a consultation to plan out the details of your session. Pricing is customized for your unique vision.
After consultation, I will send you a contract to be signed and a guide to prepare you for your photoshoot. You will need to pay a retainer to secure the date for your session.
Book Your Session
Come to the session 5-10 minutes early to prep you and your newborn for your session.
Within two weeks after your photo shoot, you will receive the best images from your session electronically. You will then select your favorite images for specialized editing. You will also have the option to purchase additional images.
Once I deliver your chosen photos, you will receive a print release form and a list of the best printers to enjoy your photos forever.

For a limited time
Ashley takes so much care and attention into the session. From the first contact of inquiry to getting the edited photos back, she was professional, timely, and truly thought of everything. She was so thoughtful in choosing the curated props/outfits for my son, as well as creating an environment that was relaxing and safe. My husband and I enjoyed the time of watching our son get his photo taken and will cherish them for our lifetime. I would wholeheartedly recommend Little Hauflings Photography and plan to have her document more of my son's milestones!

Ashley did such a great job with our maternity and newborn pictures. She captured above and beyond my vision for maternity pictures! I was blown away by her patience and expertise positioning our baby boy for his newborn pictures. She was so gentle and patient coaxing him into each pose, and she had a great variety of props and accessories for different shots. We are absolutely in love with the final images, and really enjoyed working with Ashley. Thanks again - we couldn’t be happier!

I can’t say enough great thing about Little Hauflings! From the start, Ashley was quick and responsive to my inquiry as well as answered all my questions! During the newborn session, Ashley was all about attention to detail and provided us with so many options of what props we wanted to use. During the session, Ashley was wonderful with my baby and was very gentle with him. Ashley went through several props and stages which was amazing! It was hard to choose the final picture as they were all amazing and ended up purchasing extra because I loved them all! I will definitely be a returning customer!
