Lincoln, NE Newborn Photographer

Timeless, dreamy images & films for families who treasure a joyful connection with their newborn.


It's true what they say - the days are long, but the months go so quick! The newborn stage doesn't last very long, and someday you're going to want to look back at your tiny baby and wonder how they grew up so fast.

Newborn sessions take place 7-21 days after your baby is born for the perfect amount of sleepiness, floppiness, and squishiness.

Hi! I'm Laura

When we got married almost 5 years ago (wowza - it goes so fast!), it was difficult to find both a photographer and a videographer who had a similar style and approach. So, we decided to create the photo + video experience we wanted.


Now, we've been awarded both Best Photography AND Best Videography by Nebraska Wedding Day.


Being a husband and wife team, we work together not only on wedding days, but every day. We know exactly how to make a wedding day flow in an efficient, but relaxed, manner that allows for an easy, enjoyable experience for everyone.


Every image and video we take is an intentional part of your story; we’re either capturing the classic smiles, the spur-of-the-moment emotions, or the beautiful details. Every part of your day matters, and we curate it all into a beautiful story for you to cherish for the rest of your life.

"Laura and Shayne are so fun to work with! They are so sweet and they helped calm any nerves that I had during the day. They made the poses feel and look natural, and I can't even count how many compliments I received on the pictures!!"

How it Works


Choose between a signature newborn session or a first year membership. Memberships include up to three sessions, which is perfect if you want maternity, newborn, and first birthday sessions. You also get a discount for additional sessions, such as pregnancy announcements or six-month milestone sessions.


Neutral Newborn Session


After booking, you'll receive a session prep + styling inspo guide. Once you’ve had some time to dream up your session vision, you’ll fill out a questionnaire to let me know what you’re envisioning! A few weeks before your session, we'll get together over Zoom to match locations, outfits, and props to your vision.


Newborn sessions are in the morning for the best indoor lighting; you can choose the natural light studio or your home for the location. Newborn sessions generally take 1-2 hours. The first part will focus on full family connection, and the second part will be solos of the newborn with a variety of wraps/outfits/poses.


Neutral Newborn Session


4-6 weeks after your session, we’ll meet for your gallery reveal! You'll get to view your full gallery (& highlight film, if applicable) for the very first time! You’ll pick your favorite images from the gallery and choose to purchase them through digital collections, prints, or albums. Chosen images will receive touch-up edit (stray hairs, blemishes, etc.)


The images you purchase during the gallery reveal will be available in a private (but shareable) online gallery a week after your reveal date. Images are downloadable in high-resolution (best for printing) and web-resolution (best for saving to your phone & social media). If you added on a highlight film, it will also be in your gallery.




Your reveal is also when we can order albums, prints, products, and gifts. You simply choose what you love, and I’ll take care of placing orders, shipping, and delivery! All prints & products are ordered through a professional photography lab that I am calibrated with for highest quality. Full pricing is available at booking.

You may know what you want to wear, or you might be stressed about it. My styling guide has color palette ideas and outfit links for the whole family. I also have a client closet with dresses for moms & outfits for kiddos and newborns.

Digital Files


Digital image files are NOT included with the $300 session reservation fee. This is so you can choose your favorites and how you want purchase them, whether that be through digital + print collections, just digitals, an album, etc.

Most newborn sessions take place in my natural light studio or in your own home. Outdoor sessions are also an option. We can chat together about which location will work best for you!

Gallery Reveal


You will get an email to choose your gallery reveal date and time once all your images are ready. Gallery reveals are offered in-person at my home office (perfect for choosing album covers, paper types, etc.) or via Zoom.

Print Rights


You do get the print rights for purchased digital images. However, by ordering at your gallery reveal, I personally guarantee the quality of everything you purchase. Plus, my white-glove ordering and delivery service  ensures a stress-free process for you.
