Ugh, tiniest humans are my kryptonite. I will never get over what a friggin' miracle they are. Perfect, teeny-tiny bundle of magic.

Q: Are you trained in newborn photography?

A: Yes! Yes! Yes! I am so proud to say, yes, I am trained in newborn posing and safety. Your sweet babes safety is my number one concern at all times.


Q: When should I book my newborn session?

A: Due to the sensitive timeline of newborns and the limited amount of sessions scheduled each month, it is always best to schedule to book your newborn session earlier than later.

Q: Do you have more information on your collections?

A: Of course! View our newborn collections and read more about your experience with Bay O'Brien Photography. If you don't see what you are looking for, please don't hesitate to reach out!


"Then one day, when you least expect it, the great adventure finds you." -Edwan Mcgregor


If I could give one piece of advice to expecting parents it is this, "Sit back and take a breath because you are about to experience the greatest adventure of your life. Nothing compares to the love you will find in parenthood."

I aspire to give you the best experience, from the moment you book to those first moments of parenthood.


Everything is provided for you. From prep information, so you can prepare and know what to expect at your session, to all backdrops, headbands, bonnets, and little props.


Come to the studio, throw your feet up, relax and even take a nap. Our living room is filled with snacks,

drinks, entertainment, a comfy sofa, and toys for your older kiddos. You can even grab a coffee from little coffee shop below.


As you take a moment to breathe in parenthood, I will capture all the tiny details you never want to forget.


The most perfect way to capture your silly, chunky, new-skill loving little babe.

Q: What is a sitter sessions?

A: A sitter session is just as it sounds- it celebrates your child's ability to sit on their own. It is a perfect way to capture this fun milestone.


Q: Where should we schedule our sitter session?

A: I always suggest coming to the studio when scheduling your sitter session. I have everything we need for a perfect, stress free session- including a wardrobe for your little one.

Q: What do you focus on with a sitter session?

A: Ugh, ALL OF IT! Everything about your little one is magical and as hard as us parents try to remember every detail, we can't. That is where I come in. I freeze all those tiny details in a moment for you to keep forever- their dimple knuckles, chunky rolls, their lashes and that one baby curl that hugs the back of their neck.

"Bay is simply the best! She has been photographing our family for the past 5 years and never ceases to amaze me. My children left feeling like we just left a playdate because of how amazing Bay is with children. We love her so."
