props for newborn portraits



baby photo props

Welcome to my Charlotte Maternity & Newborn studio

The Charlotte photography studio is still in a private location with new surroundings. Having over 100 acres with a pond and adorable boat, apple orchard new in 2020, horse pasture, our vintage tub, and several fields allows for plenty of beautiful outdoor photography locations. Our expecting parents have the option of shooting inside and out in the same session.



And Answers




What do I need bring to the Charlotte pohotography studio for my maternity session?

What do I need for a baby session?

Clients do not need to bring anything but the diaper bag with essential items inside the diaper bag. We have props, wraps, hats, headbands and adorable things to use during your newborns session. We will chat in detail once you are scheduled.

Most clients only need a matching panty and bra, nipple shields, hair and makeup done when they arrive. We will chat in detail once you are scheduled about maternity gowns etc.



Whats the best age to have my newborn photographed?

Can my husband come for the maternity session?

Of course! We will chat about what hubs/family will wear during the photo session in your consultation.

The best time to photograph your newborn is 5-7 days old. I have photographed newborns at 8 weeks for various reasons. Ideally 5-12 days is best.

What’s Next


How do I book?

Can I wait to book my baby?

Is there a discount for booking both maternity & baby?



You can but I don't suggest waiting. My schedule changes daily and books quickly. What is available today may not be tomorrow.

I like to schedule newborns on their due date as a reminder to me that your baby is due. Once you are home with your baby please give me a call or text and we can firm up your date and time. Ideally 5-12 days old is a good window for images.

All appointments are scheduled via phone. A $200 retainer fee secures your date and time on my schedule. The remaining balance is due 2 days prior to your session.

You know it!

You also can earn a complimentary petite session by referring three friends or family to NicCole Photography. The best compliment is to share me with your friends and family.

Pricing for sessions are available.
