BEFORE SESSION Let us provide the best portrait experience from start to finish. Visit the studio for a complimentary design consultation to discuss your session goals and preview product options.
DURING SESSION The morning of your session, be pampered in our studio by our professional stylist while we photograph your newborn. Relax and enjoy breakfast on us. Once you’re relaxed and refreshed, we’ll finish your newborn session with family poses. Parents and siblings are included. We even encourage grandparents to take part for a multi-generational portrait.
AFTER SESSION Within two weeks following your session, you’ll return to view your photographs for the first time. Be prepared for lots of smiles, and maybe even a few goosebumps and tears.

When should I schedule my session? The best time to reserve your newborn session is during your second trimester. It is important to reserve your session before your baby arrives! Reserving your due date guarantees a place on the calendar during the very short “newborn” stage. We only accept a limited number of due dates per month to guarantee all babies are able to be photographed during the best possible age. If you chose to book after baby arrives, we will do our best to accommodate you, but the newborn stage cannot be guaranteed. For milestone and one year sessions, we recommend booking at least one month in advance. Weekends tend to fill first, so if you do need a weekend spot, please reserve as early as possible.
Is newborn photography safe? We understand the importance of protecting your little one. We pride ourselves on newborn knowledge and safety. Love by Lindey Portrait Studio provides a safe, controlled environment for your photography session. Lindey keeps immunizations up to date (including DTaP, aka Whooping Cough Vaccine). We sanitize the studio between each session, and wash our blankets and even our own clothing in detergents recommended for newborns. Lindey has been trained in newborn posing and safety by the best in the industry, and she has photographed hundreds of newborns since 2012. Newborn and baby photography is our specialty, and safety is our top priority.
Can I include my husband or other children? Yes! In fact, we encourage it. Newborns will only fit into your arms for such a short time, and we want the pictures to remember this precious time. Sibling and family poses are included in your newborn and first birthday sessions. Add family poses to any other milestone session and take the session outdoors for an additional $75.
Do I need to bring anything to the newborn session? Only a few baby items, such as pacis and gas drops. Everything else we provide for you, even including diapers and wipes! We’ll send out a detailed prep guide with instructions on what to pack once your baby arrives. Your prep guide will also include everything you’d need to know to help ensure a sleepy baby and great session!
What about props? We provide all of the props, outfits, headbands, etc, that you’ve seen posted throughout our website and on social media. You are welcome to bring along heirloom items that you would like to incorporate in your newborn session. We do find that it is best not to order an outfit specifically for your newborn session, as some items from etsy and other shops do not fit or photograph well. We hand select everything we keep in studio, knowing it will look and fit best. If you have a special request for an outfit, let us know! Chances are, we already have something similar in studio or can order the perfect outfit to have ready the day of your session. Just let us know at least 2-3 months in advance, as these handmade items do tend to take some time to make.
Can you come to my home to photograph my newborn? Absolutely! Although this session is a bit different. In studio, we are able to provide the large options of props and backdrops, as well as control the atmosphere so we can pose the newborn how we want. In a home, or lifestyle, session, it is more about capturing reality.
Do you offer mini sessions? We do! Mini sessions are available upon request and based on availability. Mini sessions are ideal for clients looking for a quality session on a budget. If you are just looking to capture this milestone and digital files are the only concern, mini session is a great option for your family.
Custom Portrait Sessions are great for those looking for an exceptional experience. With wardrobe design, home design, professional makeup artist, and multi-generational poses included, a custom session is unlike any typical photoshoot available in north Louisiana.
Do you offer gift cards? Yes! Family and friends can purchase gift cards at lovebylindey.com/resgistry. We are also happy to provide complimentary cards to include in your shower invitations so guests know that you are registered with the studio.
Do you offer sessions other than newborn and baby sessions? We do! We offer a variety of sessions, including maternity, child and family sessions. For more information, please email us or call us at the studio at 318-742-9101.
Do the sessions include any files? Your sitting fee covers your photo shoot and professional stylist for some sessions. It does not include any digital copies, prints or products. Within two weeks of your session, you will return to the studio for your order session, where your will purchase what you like. There is no minimum order requirement. Portraits start at $35; digital files range from $75-$995. Our studio offers beautiful collections that include a variety of print and digital options. Custom photography can be an investment, but our clients agree it’s worth it! We are there for you every step of the way from session design to choosing the products best for your family. The experience offered by Love by Lindey is unlike any other, and we invite you to experience it for yourself.
