They Grow So Fast: Capture the Fleeting Moments of Your Newborn's Early Days Before It's Too Late

Embarking on the journey of welcoming your precious newborn is an unparalleled joy in life. The moment you lay eyes on your baby for the first time, the rest of the world seems to fade away, and your newborn becomes the center of your universe. However, time has a way of swiftly transforming your little one from being so tiny and delicate to growing rapidly.


Those miniature fingers, the adorable toes, and those sweet little wrinkles are fleeting. Before you know it, they become distant memories. That's why investing in professional newborn portraits is a priceless opportunity to immortalize these tender initial moments of your baby's life.


At Austin Newborn Photography, we understand the significance of preserving these irreplaceable memories. Our award-winning newborn photographer is dedicated to crafting custom portraits that will become cherished mementos for generations to come. Let us help you create timeless keepsakes that capture the essence of your little miracle's early days.


We Celebrate Motherhood....

Valerie Steinkoenig is a professionally trained portrait photographer and founder of Austin Newborn Photography, an Austin baby photo studio. Valerie is a Texas-based award-winning portrait photographer specializing in fine art portraiture of women and their children. Valerie Kay Photography's primary focus is maternity sessions, newborn sessions, and baby milestone sessions. We photograph MOTHERHOOD in our studio. Mothers & their children. Families. Our Painterly Maternity Photo style and clean, timeless newborn portrait style create images that will stand the test of time.

We create images that celebrate your growing family.

Your session is not complete without printed art. It is our duty to provide you with the best, heirloom-quality prints, wall art, and albums available. Our studio is filled with printed art. We believe in the power of the printed image. In addition to being a Master Photographer, Valerie is also a Print Artist with many years of training in the art of print making. Many of the studio’s fine art offerings are hand-printed in-house by Valerie. It's Valerie's passion for printing and attention to detail that makes the work produced by our studio stand out amongst the rest.

Your printed heirloom-quality art will be cherished for generations.

To complement our fine art, in-house printing, we also offer a variety of albums, fine art metal prints, canvas, luxe acrylic prints, and fine art, custom framed prints. Your family’s portraits will bring you joy today and will become part of your family’s legacy.

Newborn Photography Experience Process:

I. Scheduling

Newborn portraits are best taken early in baby's first month. While baby is still technically a "NEWBORN" for approximately 3 months, Newborn Photo Sessions are usually scheduled between two and three weeks. Here at Austin Newborn Photography we have found our sweet spot to be between 15 and 21 days.


We'll place a date on the schedule at booking. This will be based on your due date and once baby arrives we’ll adjust this if needed.


If you’ve just discovered us and your little one will arrive shortly or is already here contact us and we’ll do all we can to accommodate and schedule a session. Please be aware, however, that our schedule is often fully booked 1-2 months in advance.

II. Planning and Design

Before your Austin Newborn Photography Session you’ll fill out a pre-session questionnaire. This allows our team to learn about your style and color preferences. Then, we’ll custom-design at least 4 different photography sets for your newborn portraits session. You'll also receive, via email, our Newborn Session Prep Guide. This should help you get ready for your newborn photoshoot.

III. session day

The styling of your newborn photography session will include access to our full collection props, backdrops, and client wardrobe. You only need to bring baby’s necessities. You don't have to worry about anything else as all of the planning, preparation, and set up will have been completed before you arrive at the studio. Newborn sessions are relaxed and not rushed. You should plan to be in the studio for almost 2.5 hours. Snacks and light refreshment will be provided.

Iv. ordering appointment

The best part! Approximately 2-4 weeks following your session you'll be invited back to the studio to view your images and place your newborn session order. You'll be guided through the investment menu as you select your favorite images from your Newborn Session. Together we'll view the Austin Newborn Photography Product Guide, you'll get a chance to see the studio's selection of heirloom quality products displayed around the studio. We'll help you select the best heirloom art to complement your beautiful home.
