This time in your baby’s life goes fastAs your newborn photographer my goal is to capture this time in your life when your little one is brand new and all of the details change so quickly. It goes by in a blur and I promise, you will never regret capturing the way your new baby looks in their first few days.
What to Expect
Choosing your newborn photographer can be a daunting task. There are so many out there, how do you choose? When you choose Elle Marie Photography to photograph your new baby, you aren’t just getting a few pics, you are investing in a full service experience. I’ve spent 12 years perfecting my craft, learning the art of photography, but more importantly, all aspects of newborn safety as it pertains to posing and photographing your baby. I am a proud, accredited member of APNPI, an association dedicated to safety and excellence in newborn photography.
Our sessions together can take up to 3 hours, as we take as much time as needed to soothe, feed, change and meet baby’s needs throughout. Siblings and parents are included in the full newborn session at no additional cost. In fact, I almost always insist parents get at least 1 photo with their new baby, so come prepared! You don’t need to bring anything with you to your session except yourselves, and essentials for baby. My studio is fully stocked with everything we need for the shoot!
Finally, about 2 weeks after your session, you will come back to the studio to view your images and make selections about what you want to purchase! This is always a lot of fun, and I warn you now, you may need a tissue! This is the time you will get to see your images, as well as samples of the products I offer.
Every client completes a questionnaire to get the planning started for our session together. I am happy to discuss details with you via phone, email, or have you in to the studio!
2. Your Session
We begin with family and sibling photos, and then I work with your baby. Lasting up to 3 hours, newborn sessions take place in my Whitby studio, but for the most part, parents can just sit back and relax!
1. Reveal & Ordering
About 2 weeks after your session you will come back to the studio to view your gorgeous images and see samples of the products I offer and make selections about what you want to purchase.
Where your session takes place
The photography studio is located in downtown Whitby , ON. Situated just steps from “the four corners” the studio is among some of Whitby’s best local eats and places to shop. The studio has been designed with the comfort of new parents in mind, while providing an optimal photography studio setting to help ensure we capture those adorable newborn poses we are looking for.
During your session, I invite you to kick back on the love seat or grab a chair, and enjoy a coffee while you relax. Browse through my studio samples, read a book, or do a puzzle with big brother or sister.
The studio is fully equipped with a variety of carefully selected fabrics, textures and select props, to enhance your photography experience. I choose props and materials consistent with my clean and timeless style, to ensure photos that will stand the test of time, and create feelings based on emotion.
When you come back after your session for your reveal, you’ll have the pleasure of viewing your gallery on my reveal wall.

What People are saying
Lyndsey was fantastic! She was very professional and easy to work with. When we had questions, she was very prompt in her response. She even took the time to educate us on the difference between newborn shots in studio versus at home to help us make a decision. We were blown away with the photos once we received them. We are very happy with the memories she captured for our growing family.
After doing a lot of research and trying to find the best photographer to capture my newborn son I came across Lyndsey’s website and instagram page and fell in love with her work. Going to her for my son’s newborn photo shoot was the best decision and I’m so glad that I found her! She captured him so beautifully when I honestly didn’t think the pictures could possibly come out that great through no fault of Lyndsey’s since my son was being super fussy. Lyndsey was so patient and kind and so accommodating to all his needs and I don’t how but somehow she managed to take the most beautiful and elegant classic photos of him and even got one of him smiling! She’s a miracle worker and I would most definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a photographer to capture any special moments in their lives.
Our experience with Elle Marie Photography was terrific. Lyndsey was super responsive to my email inquiry about what she could offer for a new born shoot was also interested in what we had in mind as well. Her online platform made correspondence and setting up the shoot easy. She was very patient with our uncooperative little girl and gave us plenty of time to get the right shots. We are thrilled with the outcome! Would definitely recommend to expecting parents wanting newborn pictures.
