Arizona Newborn Photographer Lizzy McMillan specializes in capturing your family history. Those tiny fingers and toes, the way the fit so perfectly in Daddy’s hands, the sleepy milk smiles; these are the things that are so short lived and why we like to capture these sweet moments early on in your baby’s life. 

Newborn photography sessions are held in our Downtown Mesa, Arizona newborn photography studio. Sessions take place when babies are between five and fourteen days old. This is to ensure that your baby is still in the super-sleepy stage.  This will allow for easier posing and better images for your family to treasure.

As a professional Arizona newborn photographer, Momento Studios is also experienced with “older” newborns. At Momento Studios, we feel everyone should have the opportunity to have their little bundle of joy documented.

We strongly suggest that your session take place in the first 2 weeks after birth, but we do offer newborn sessions up to six weeks after birth. This is assuming you are ok with baby being awake and/or swaddled during their session.

The studio calendar fills up quickly, so we encourage you to reserve your session on the calendar before baby is born. We tentatively book your newborn session for 7 days after your due-date, and confirm a session date after baby has arrived.

It is important that you contact Momento Studios within 72 hours of baby’s birth, so we can confirm your session date and time on the calendar.


Your baby’s comfort and safety are our top priority. Our team is trained in infant CPR, and we take great pride in being experts in newborn and baby safety, posing, and handling infants. Due to our extensive work with multiples and NICU babies, our entire staff is up to date with all vaccines, including the Tdap (Pertussis/Whooping Cough) vaccine.

**Please be sure that anyone handling your baby for newborn portraits has received the Pertussis Vaccine, is licensed and insured. We are OBYGN and Pediatrician approved.


Newborn photography is very hands-on! As such, you must be comfortable with us handling your baby during the session.

The camera room will be warmed to 80-85 degrees and a white noise machine will help to soothe baby into a deep sleep. Parents are invited to watch the session, or relax in the climate-controlled Parent Lounge.

The majority of the images are captured with baby unclothed with wraps, hats, headbands etc. Our prop & mini-wardrobe selection is extensive. Momento Studios provides a myriad of both neutral and colorful high-end wraps, headbands, bonnets, hats, ultra soft fabrics and knits, fur rugs, outfits and custom handmade props.

Of course we love to incorporate your sentimental items into your session too! Your baby’s session will be fully styled and prepared prior to your arrival at Momento Studios.

All of our newborn collections include your session with Arizona newborn photographer, Lizzy McMillan, access to our extensive prop & wardrobe inventory, a pre-session consultation and artistic editing.

Prints, Products and Digital Images are sold separately unless indicated. Collections range from $300 to $1200. Please see our Investment page for more information.
