"We can't be happier with the photographs of our brand new baby girl. Maria, thank you so much for your patience and creativity! I love every singe photo in the gallery and our canvas. I'm so glad we booked your services, you were so helpful and easy going, and made us feel at ease when working with Kayla!"

From Happy Clients

"my experience working with maria was so pleasant. from the beginning she was accommodating and responsive (i had a million questions about the session as a first time mom!). Our session was relaxed and comfortable - pretty much sat on the couch watching how she gently works with david. she was like a baby whisperer. I loved the experience and highly recommend her services!

From Happy Clients

"Working with Maria was wonderful! She was open minded about my wishes for poses and easy going! My baby was so colicky that day,  but Maria was patient to get the shots we wanted. she rocked and soothed my baby and was gentle and patient. she listened to my requests for color preferences and props. we got this beautiful gallery with most precious moments. the session was an incredible experience for us! highly recommend maria!"

When should I book my newborn session?

It is best to book ahead of time, even while you are still pregnant. I offer a limited number of newborn sessions each month so we can provide our clients undivided attention. We can schedule an approximate date, aiming for the first two weeks of baby's life, and then confirm the day once the baby is born.

Baby's do arrive when they are ready, and it's not always on the planned due date, so don't worry! If we have an opening on the calendar, I'll do my best to work with you and your baby! It is highly recommended to book ahead of time to ensure availability and secure your spot.
Even though we recommend photographing a baby during first two weeks for his/her life, we will gladly capture portraits of older newborns.

My baby is already born. Is it too late to schedule a newborn session?

Where will my newborn session take place?

Most sessions are done at our studio in Huntingdon Valley, PA. 
You could request a session at the comfort of your own home. Please contact the studio for more details. 

At the studio, we have a lot of backdrops, and a wide variety of props to use, whereas at home sessions are considered "lifestyle", with minimal props, and a lot more candid moments. Both options appeal to clients, it all depends on what you prefer!

For at home sessions we bring only small props, plush tiny animals, wraps, and outfits. No backdrops or large props. I utilize your home as a perfect backdrop for the session - many photos take place in the nursery or master bedroom. Where possible I would use available window light for more natural approach. 

At the studio, we use props, backgrounds and studio flash with a large softbox. We have a controlled temperature and most times an assistant will be present to help out with certain poses.

What would be the difference between studio session and home session?

- Please try (emphasis on "try" lol) to keep your baby awake for an hour prior to the session.

- Please feed your newborn right before leaving home for the session. 

- Please have a bottle of expressed milk or formula on hand for use during our session. 

- Please have one or two pacifiers, as an alternative to calm and soothe the baby. We promise, from one time  only, baby won't become attached to the pacifier, but it may tremendously help during the session. 

- If you see that your baby is not feeling that well , most likely it is best to reschedule. 

- If you will be participating in the session, it is a good idea to have a change of clothing, just in case any accidents happen (like baby burping/peeing on you). 

- During the session, please keep all the noises to the minimum. It's very important to keep a quiet and calm atmosphere. We have a white noise machine we'll be using to help set the mood.

- To keep the proper mood and flow of the session, we ask that only people who will be participating in the session are present. 

 - Since babies are usually photographed naked, the studio will be set at a temperature of 80F to ensure baby is warm and comfortable. If we’re not sweating, it’s probably not warm enough for baby! Parent’s please make sure to wear comfortable loose clothing, short sleeves will probably be most comfortable.

- Chances are you’ll be here between 2-3 hours, so I highly recommend eating a good hearty breakfast before you arrive. However at the studio we will have water and light snacks for your convenience. 

- Our studio is fully equipped with all baby necessities like diapers and wipes, and many other things, but if you prefer a specific brand, please bring your own. 


I know this can be a very exciting and stressful time for you, especially when adding sleep deprivation in the mix! When you come for the session to ProPhoto by MK studio you will get the best experience! Just relax on our comfy couch, while we do the magic of newborn photography! Photographing those precious moments for you means a lot, so please reach out with any questions or requests, I'm happy to accommodate! Thank you!
