Nicole McDaniel Photography is a premier Colorado Springs – Denver newborn photographer who specializes in maternity, newborn and baby portraits. Her studio is located in Monument, Colorado but services clients from Colorado Springs, Parker, Highlands Ranch, Castle Rock, Lone Tree, Aurora and Denver. By specializing in newborn and maternity photography Nicole can giver her clients a once of a kind experience. With a studio full of newborn photo props, baby outfits and maternity gowns everything you wish for in your custom portraits is readily available to you.
Newborns are best photographed at under 3 weeks old and many of Nicole’s clients book their photo session months in advance. Nicole only takes on 4 newborn sessions per month as she has 4 children of her own. This is why it is very important to book your session with her in advance. To book a newborn photography session your due date will be penciled into Nicole’s calender. We know that babies like to arrive on their own terms, so once your baby has been born simply message Nicole and finalize the photo date. Sibling and family photos are available with all newborn sessions and will be customized to fit what you need. A typical newborn session will include baby only photos, macro photos of toes, lips and eyes, parent shots and sibling images.
Maternity Photos are best done at 30 – 34 weeks of pregnancy, or earlier if the mom wishes. Nicole has beautiful locations in the Monument, Castle Rock or Colorado Springs area for outdoor sessions or studio photos can be done in her Monument studio. Spouses and children are welcome to all maternity sessions but we do try and make the session mostly about the mom to be. Pregnancy gowns and outfits are available to all clients or you can wear your own clothing or both. Maternity sessions are only booked alongside newborn sessions. It is a great way to get to know me before you baby arrives and get comfortable with one another.
Grow with me sessions are normally held at 6 months, 9 months and 1 year of age. Six month sessions are fun because most babies can sit up on their own but are not yet mobile. We usually get a lot of smiles during this session. Nine month photo sessions babies are just starting to crawl and make for fun photos! The one year photo session is most times very fun and a big workout. Babies have a little mind of their own and you will get to see their cute personalities come out. Most of Nicole’s clients choose to do milestone photos so they can document the first year of their babies life. Parent shots are welcome at baby sessions as well!
