There is nothing more beautiful than a brand new baby!
….except a brand new baby and the love, his parents have for him.
As a new parent, nothing quite prepares you for the overwhelming love you feel for your new baby.
Or how much your heart will grow in such a short period of time.
I love capturing simple newborn photos for families to document this new stage in life.
Thank you for trusting me with your memories!

Each session is unique and will provide you with timeless photography to treasure for years to come. Your newborn baby will only be this tiny once in their life, and only for a matter of days. I strive to capture these special moments before they pass you by, allowing you to cherish them forever. Each newborn photoshoot provides a unique set of challenges and baby is always the boss at my sessions. I will work with your little one to get the best of what they are willing to give us! I always aim to provide a calm and relaxing session for everyone involved, ensuring that all babies are in safe hands.

I’m always in awe the love and joy a new baby brings to a family.
It’s a love that is indescribable and somewhat mystical.
Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind you just how big it really is.
Meet Sedona James Wood
born May 7, 2019
7 lbs. 6 oz. 20 in.
She has brought so much sunshine, laughter, and love to this beautiful family.
These moments and memories of the first few days being earthside will be cherished for a lifetime.
Little Ms. Sedona you are so loved and truly blessed to be born into this family!
Check out this adorable little one’s hospital session.
Thanks for visiting my site! I’d love to have your baby on my calendar.
As one of the top Elko County Newborn Photographers, I hope it is evident I love what I do! But don’t just take my word for it. Please visit my Google reviews and read for yourself what other clients have to say. I strive to create a comfortable environment at my studio and want moms and dads to feel at home while their newborn is in my care. I believe that personal reviews are a great way to see if the photographer you are choosing is reputable. I’m so honored so many of my former clients have a left a review for me. I encourage you to read through them as you decide if we are a good fit. If you have questions or want to know more about my photo session, please contact me! I offer a no-obligation consultation. It will give you an opportunity to get to know me and see the safe environment your baby will be photographed in. We’ll discuss pricing, packages, what to wear, what to bring, and how the entire process works. It’s always important to me that parents meet the person handling their precious baby!
I am currently booking newborns due this September – December. Contact me today to get scheduled!
Newborn hospital photography is some of my favorites to capture. It’s those first few moments documented while you are getting acquainted with your new little one. Taking in all the new feelings your heart and mind are exploring. These moments happen so quickly and before you know it, you are on your way home and your hospital stay is a blur. The one beautiful thing about your hospital photo session is you get to relive these milestone moments over and over.
These simple portrait sessions allow for me to capture those new little fingers and toes, snuggles with daddy, tender moments with mama, and even capturing a first-time grandparent. Just as babies arrival is unpredictable, so is our sessions and that is okay. We just go with the flow and capture what your baby and our circumstances allow us! We embrace the unpredictability and know I will do everything possible to create a calm and enjoyable environment while you get to know your sweet baby in front of my camera.
Sedona, is so perfect, and her parents just couldn’t stop staring, touching and snuggling this new bundle of love. Those moments are just magical! Such a special time for you and your family and one you’ll love to look back on and remember with great joy and love. Thank you for sharing such an intimate part of your life with me. I truly feel honored and so excited for her newborn session in the studio.
Let’s plan your newborn hospital session!
Hospital newborn photography sessions are not about planning the perfect outfit, the perfect hair, and makeup or making sure everything is perfectly in place. (although I do have a few tips and tricks I share before our session to make it go more smoothly) It’s about documenting the emotion and love you feel for your family member arriving! I want you to look back at these images and remember how it felt to hold your new little one in your arms in those first few days. Or how it felt to cuddle them on your chest and feel your sweet baby relax the second they felt your heart beat from outside! These moments are raw and real and ones you will never get back. I’d love to be a part of your hospital journey.
These sweet little Elko NV twins have arrived earthside!
Let me introduce you to the brother-sister duo, the Zahrowski twins!
Meet Brady Dale and his sister Brynlee Hope.
Brady weighed 5 lbs. 11 oz and was 19 inches!
Brynlee was 5 lbs 3 oz and 18 inches!
I have to confess, I’m a little obsessed with twins and the bond they seem to have just mere days old. I’m so fascinated at my newborn sessions when twins get fussy, I just lay them next to each other
and 9 times out of 10 they just snuggle up with each other. They instantly become content!
This beautiful family could not have been more of a dream to work with. I honestly have never seen first-time parents so relaxed and go with the flow!
It is always such an honor when families choose me to be their photographer to document all these sleepy newborn moments!
Thank you, Leo and Ashley, it was such a pleasure working with you!
I often get asked what if my twins come early?
Typically, my newborn sessions are done between day 5 and 15 after birth. But if twins come early and they spend some time in the NICU we just push back our session a little bit. It’s not a big deal at all!
When you come to my newborn studio it’s not just about getting your images taken. I create a custom newborn photo session just for your family in my beautiful light-filled studio. The studio is stocked with gorgeous props to fit my style and produce the types of images you see on my site.
The custom photography experience I offer is like none other. I have spent many hours perfecting the studio esthetics through props, textures and a client wardrobe. I have curated a brand that clients come back to after each baby is born and for their milestone sessions. They can count on their images having that same soft, beautiful and timeless look.
I start off by offering a one of a kind no obligation consultation. Where you will have the opportunity to get to know the person who will be handling your new baby. That is the one thing that is so important to me, so your baby is not handled by a stranger. You will know all the details of the photo shoot and what to expect. I will go over some simple, yet effective ways to prep for a successful photo shoot. Plus, you’ll get to see the studio all set up when you visit just like it will be the day of your shoot.
I pride myself in getting to know each of my clients and take the time to know your desires for a customized session you’ve always dreamt of having. I’ll help you dream up a session that you envision, help you plan your wardrobe, and then style the props to tie it all together. The true beauty of the custom photography experience is that when working with me, you are promised the delivery of only the highest quality, luxury experience catered to your needs. I’ll ensure that your art is something you’ll cherish in your home through the years, and your children and grandchildren will treasure them as family heirlooms to pass on from generation to generation.
This beautiful family left me a glowing review! I can’t thank them enough for allowing me to be a part of this beautiful milestone in their life!
“Kandi is an absolute treasure to have in our community. Her studio is spotless and timeless — two things that we were looking for in a newborn/family photographer. Kandi was so delightful to work with, she takes her time to explain the process, her style, and her pricing packages. The day of our session she was so comforting. It can be challenging with a new baby and small children but she made the process so easy and relaxing. At one point I had joked that I could stay there all day because I was so relaxed. The images that she produces are absolutely stunning and gorgeous. We were blown away with the quality and style. Kandi is so talented and we loved everything about our session! Thanks, Kandi!!”
Guess who just added a new spot in her studio for lifestyle newborn photo shoots?? This girl, right here! I am so excited to be offering this service to my clients. I will be able to capture real authentic moments. Even though they are in a studio setting. It is my hope you will feel at home and make yourselves comfortable. I’ll still be available to help you style the session with the studio wardrobe or you can wear something from home.
Most new parents want a lifestyle session in their own home but are overwhelmed with the thought of having their house spotless and they think it’s too much work. Who wants to have to declutter their space right after having a baby? Or make sure the nursery is completed and not in an upheaval state.
So no worries, I have you covered!! I have a special space all set up in my studio to look just like your bedroom and it even includes a mini crib for baby! We all know how much work it is bringing home a tiny little human and how your world and sleep have just turned upside down!
I will have the studio all warmed up and ready to go when you get here! The temperature is usually around 78-80 degrees to keep your little one comfortable while they are naked and being photographed. I have all the beautiful creamy and textured wraps plus beautiful headbands available. There is no need to bring a thing! The focus during the shoot is primarily to capture the interaction and love between the new baby and your family.
A few tips to help you prepare:
If possible, give the baby a little spa time with a warm bath and lotion treatment, this will help keep baby awake before the photoshoot. Don’t put the baby in anything that will have to be lifted over their head to take off for the session. And lastly, feed baby right before you leave your house, usually a sleepy baby + full tummy and car ride will help them be in a deep sleep when they arrive at the studio.
Don’t be worried if the baby is fussy at the session. I have a lot of tips and tricks that I will try and get baby comfortable and asleep. If they don’t work, no worries at all, we’ll take some time to relax and feed if needed so that she/he can settle.
I like to photograph babies wearing very little or nothing at all! I’ll swaddle the baby in soft fabrics. It warms up the baby and helps him/her to fall asleep.
Choosing a neutral color palette for your clothing will look best and keep the focus on the baby and your family, not the clothes. If you need help choosing what to wear, I’m always here to help!
Stay calm. Babies sense the worry parents are experiencing and can become more agitated.
Prepare to have your newborn photo session to last between 1.5-2 hours, depending on diaper changes and feedings.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you if you’re interested in booking a lifestyle newborn photo shoot!
