The good ol days… the days where our baby slept in our arms for hours upon hours or our toddlers were running circles around us? Where we felt exhausted but more fulfilled than any other time in our lives? The days that we wish we could get back and relive over and over again? I want those days for you! I want your time with me to be real and true of the life you are living. The magic we create is meant to transport you back to them good ol’ days while giving you allllllll the feels.

We will embrace love, snuggles and share endless smiles.

When I’m behind the lens

You will sign your contract, pay your retainer fee and then we will mark our calendars and as soon as baby arrives you will shoot me a text so we can get them on the books within the next 3 weeks if possible. 

I will send a questionnaire that helps me to customize the session to your color and lightly themed desires. Want rustic, boho, minimal, florals, lace? I got it all babe!

I ask for a quick message within 48 hours of baby’s arrival at which point I will send you dates for booking. Newborn sessions take place in studio, Monday-Friday, between 9am and 2pm. If this is a family newborn session and dad has returned to work he will need to have time away for the session. Sessions do not take place on Weekends.

We will gather at the studio where you will take over my space. Get comfy, feed/change baby and then you will have the opportunity to find a gown to wear if desired. I have many flowy, beautiful, neutral options suitable for new mama’s and big sisters. For the guys just have them come in jeans or khakis with a neutral top. Newborn sessions with family portraits usually last between 1.5-3 hours (for baby-only sessions without family portraits expect 1- 1.5 hours).

Baby’s Arrival

Session Day

Ready to give me that baby and all their snuggles? 

Newborn sessions start at $495. I have many different package options. please inquire through my contact page for all the session information.
Newborn sessions take place Monday-Friday between 9 am and 2 pm at my studio in Hamilton, Mt. I provide the wraps, tiebacks, props, and more in the hopes that you can arrive worry-free and allow me to snuggle that baby! 
Sessions are shot in a lightly prompted style with more of a posed focus when photographing baby only. Allowing me to capture you as you are. Be prepared to snuggle, laugh and explore. If you see my art and it makes you FEEL, like really FEEL something, then don’t let another second go by without showcasing your story with me!!  

Newborn Sessions

Rumor has it… 


Jaela has done multiple family sessions for us and each time she blows me away. Her work is absolutely gorgeous. I love all the raw real moments she’s able to capture. She has such a sweet soul that makes taking family pictures a breeze!

Jaela is an absolute master at taking newborn photos. Every photo was unique and of the highest quality. The experience of watching her work with my baby was so special. She was so patient and gentle with my baby, demonstrating her skill and expertise. I look forward to future photos with Jaela!

She was outstanding with my whole family, my daughters adored her and she kept up with my step son! If you’re looking for a photographer that exceeds your expectations in every way, shape and form, Jaela is your gal!
