South Jersey Newborn Photography
I am a newborn photographer specializing in capturing your first family photo and freezing time to remember your baby while they are still so little.
“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?!”

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!
Sit back and relax until it is time for your photos. This is your time to take a break and let Jackie have some snuggle time. Jackie always works off of baby’s needs so baby may need to eat more often then normal. This is completely normal do 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!

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 print in 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. Here is a blog about some reason's why digital images are hurting you in the long run.
Newborn Photography Frequently Asked Questions
When should you book your newborn session?
It’s best to book your due date on our calendar 3 months before. We only take 5 newborns a month so that we can give our clients the best experience. We also want schedule your design consultation so we can go over all of your expectations for your sessions. Is your baby here already? Not a problem! Still inquire to see if we have availability. We know babies come when they want, so we understand last minute bookings as well.
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!
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!

Where is our studio?
The studio address is 249 High Street, Burlington NJ 08016. We are right in the heart of the historical district in Burlington County. We love our quaint and quiet studio so much! It matches our style perfectly. If you remember Café Gallery, we are right down the street. The restaurant is now called Riverview and provides amazing meals. We are also right around the corner from Brickwall Tavern, which has amazing craft beers. We are a short walk from wonderful antique shops in which we find a lot for unique props.
- 10 minutes off of 295.
- 8 minutes from Chick-fil-a (my favorite)
Street parking is available as well as parking lots behind the studio. If it is raining, we can show you a drop off stop to bring baby in quickly.
