Newborn Session

The first few days of your child’s life are so incredibly precious.  Never again will your little one be the teeny tiny squishy ball of perfection.  Make sure these tiny little details, the precious and serene lip pout as your newborn baby peacfeully sleeps, the newborn tufts of hair, the tiny fingers and toes are documented for you to forever remember.  Newborn sessions are ideally done in the first ten days of birth at Candid Joy Photography’s studio in Chatfield, Minnesota

3-4 hour session focusing primarily on your newborn | Includes sibling and parent shots as well

Maternity Session

Although it may seem at times that pregnancies drag on and on forever.  The truth is that in a blink of an eye this once in a lifetime, truely miraculous time in your life comes to a screaching halt. Maternity sessions are the perfect way for you to document the abundance of joyful anticipation in your life.  Sessions are typically done during the 32-36 weeks of pregnancy.  Maternity and newborn galleries are combined when booked together.
