South Jersey Newborn Photography
I am a south jersey newborn photographer specializing in capturing your first family photo and freezing time to remember your baby while they are still so little.
Photos are one of the only things that become more valuable over time. Think about it! We finally realize it 20+ years after they are taken and we look back to remember the story!
“Jackie is truly the baby whisperer! My son was wide awake when we arrived and Jackie knew exactly which shots she wanted to get at that moment. When she wanted him to sleep, she rocked him and got the perfect angelic looks. She didn't even flinch when he had a major poop blowout all over her swaddles! She cleaned him up without even batting an eye and even encouraged us to go get a snack (that she had all set up for us when we got there) so we wouldn't have to worry about it. We wanted to highlight our IVF journey in this shoot and Jackie went as far as going to Build a Bear to get a lab coat that would fit our very tiny "science baby". Who else would do that?!”
- Hope Snow
I can't say enough about how wonderful Jackie is! I met her after I had my son, and when I saw the photographs and albums from her family sessions, I just knew that she was going to be the one who took my son's first birthday and family portraits. She is such a joy to work with, and it really shows in the photos too! She really goes out of her way to ensure everyone that's a part of the shoot is happy and comfortable. She delivers the most robust and wonderful customer service. I seriously can't wait to get these pictures on the walls of my home! If you're on the fence about investing in family heirloom photography, look no further than Stinsman Photography!

Hello and welcome! Whether it is your first baby or your fifth, this is the most precious time to capture. Your baby will only be this small for a short period. Let’s capture their chubby cheeks, fuzzy hair, tiny fingers and toes, squishy lips and tiny smirks. We love to capture siblings and parents as well, so we include any family member that would like to be involved. That also includes grandparents! Bring the fam!

Our Newborn Session Process
After you decide that we are the perfect fit for you, we will have a design consultation to make sure all of your expectations are covered during your session. Everything is discussed ahead of time so when we get to the day of the session, we are ready to go! These zoom calls take about 15-30 minutes.
Once you come in, you will be welcomed by Jackie, her assistant and your personal hair and makeup artist! This is your time to take a break and let Jackie have some snuggle time with your precious miracle. Jackie always works off of baby’s needs so baby may need to eat more often then normal. This is completely normal due to stimulating them (Jackie also explains this throughout the session) Breakfast or lunch is also provided. One last thing to remember the day of your session!
How long after birth do we do the newborn session?
We like babies to be between 12-20 days new. Online you will see many sites say 7-10 days but we find that nursing mothers are still growing their milk supply and some many need additional doctors appointments. We find the best days to be between 14-16 days. Of course, we have photographed sooner and later then 20 days, so if baby needs come extra time in the NICU or appointments we are always flexible!
Ordering Appointment and Delivery
After your session, we will plan a day for a zoom call to see your photos and pick your favorites. You get to see all of your images BEFORE picking your final package. We want you to go home with what you LOVE! We will also customize your birth announcements that are included in your session fee! Once your products come in, we will deliver them to you! If you purchase a wall piece, we include installation!
Amazing experience from start to finish! Jackie is a sweet, down to earth and talented photographer. We just completed our family photos and I wanted to keep every single one!! Her website is easy to use and well organized. She makes the whole process simple and fun. Her work truly speaks for itself. In addition, we appreciated how quickly she executed completing our photos. Jackie takes the time to understand what you are looking for and pays attention to detail. You can't go wrong with choosing her to capture your special moments. - Emily

In studio Session In Home Session
We had a wonderful experience for the second time with Jackie. Our Santa session was beyond what I expected with how quick it was, Jackie got so many great pictures! Our second experience was with our newborn session and we received our pictures quickly which I was so happy about. Jackie was a Jedi with my son! She was able to keep him sound asleep for a lot of the poses she put him in and did some amazing poses with the whole family. My daughter was also in awe of her and now wants to be a photographer. Thank you Jackie you are the newborn master! - Michelle
Just looking for digital images only? There are many reasons why we don't just do digital images.
The number one reason is because your family deserves to be seen in printed albums and wall art for years to come. Studies show that children are more confident and feel more loved when they see their photos on the wall of their home.
The second reason is because we are a done for you service! Think of it.... Wam bam thank you ma'am! You get your images and then don't have to design an album or wall art! Everything is also guaranteed for a lifetime. If something breaks or is damaged accidently, we replace it 100%. Walmart and Shutterfly are not going to do that for you.
Reason three? You are supporting a local small business and her employees that have families!

Newborn Photography Frequently Asked Questions
What if you deliver early and need extra time in the NICU?
Not a problem! We have photographed babies 6 weeks and older as well. You just take the time to think about recovering and supporting your little peanut!
I found some Pinterest ideas, can we do them?
Absolutely! We use pinterest boards are a guide. Not all babies go into certain poses. We take your pinterest board and add it into our workflow for your session. Sometimes babies do not like to be naked or do not like their fingers fussed with, so if babies become uncomfortable or fussy, we then move onto the next pose in our workflow. We average about 10-20 different set ups.
Is newborn Photography safe?
Of course it is! But! I had to be done right. At Stinsman Photography, we have been trained by the best in the business and have attended multiple safety seminars. We are CPR certified and know many queues if baby is in distress or uncomfortable. Check out this blog about how to pick the right photographer that is trained in newborn safety!
