The Motherhood Collective

The Central Coasts "Newborn Whisperer"

Motherhood is a Journey

Your littlest human and your biggest feelings as you enter this new journey of motherhood. The joy of holding your tiny baby and experiencing all of their firsts. You don't want to miss this opportunity to capture their portraits and cherish the tiniest features. Our portraits are pure + simple, allowing us to focus on their tiny nose and toes, that little pout, and the fine hair on their ears as it catches the lights, we will document it for you. 

We have designed an experience to be calming for families. We know first-hand how challenging it is to get ready during your post-partum journey. So we bring the experience to you. DeeDee is experienced in newborn photography, working her magic as the Newborn Whisperer for almost two decades.  DeeDee is dedicated to delivering an experience that makes it accessible for families to document the tiniest details in the comfort of your home. 


"As a new mommy, I was not expecting how tired I would be. DeeDee took us under her wing and the results were beautiful. While I got my hair and makeup done, DeeDee took the sweetest pictures of our baby girl. We are so thankful!"

My Step-By-Step Process

Start by contacting us directly by filling out the form on our website here. We will discuss your needs and ensure we are a great fit.

3. Day-of your Session

The day of your session, I will arrive like Mary Poppins, with everything we need. All you have to do is snuggle up with your sweet family, while I document the connection + details.

2. Contract and Deposit

Once a date has been agreed upon you will be sent a contract and invoice for your session fee. These must both be completed within 48 hours to secure your date. 

*Newborn Sessions will be scheduled tentatively around your due date.
