OHIO NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

meet AMANDA ELLIS

 Inspired by the Renaissance masters and black and white photography, I craft each portrait with intentionality and care. You won’t catch me telling you to “just be natural” while I click away wildly. I’ve carefully studied the art of posing, and I’ll position you to perfection down to the way you rest your hands and hold your mouth.

I’ll even teach you how to breathe in a way that floods your pregnancy-laden posture with strength and power. Basically, I leave nothing to chance in my pursuit to bring you the portraits of your dreams!

Since 2009, I’ve documented the magic of motherhood with a modern, vibrant, and dramatic style.

We have used Amanda ever since my daughter was a newborn. We absolutely                        and she even did a birth story for our son (highly recommended). She captures the                        MOMENTS We will cherish forever.

I had Amanda do my maternity and first child’s newborn shoot 2.5 years ago and she just did my second child’s newborn shoot… She’s amazingly laid back and patient and takes her time to get the hard shots which will ultimately make you happy…She is very talented and creates artful, poignant keepsake images that you’ll love.

I’ve booked a session… now what?


Sessions usually take place in my studio in Downtown Cuyahoga Falls.

Where will my session take place? 

Yes! We LOVE when partners and your other children join in on the fun! We keep things relaxed and they can hang out and watch TV or use our WIFI and have snacks and drinks while we focus on you! When we’re ready for them, we’ll pop them into a few poses.

Can I Include My Partner And Other Family Members?

When Will I Get To See The Final Images?



We have Same Day Viewing and Ordering Appointments available or you can come back after a week to view your images!





Between 28-34 weeks. 

When Is The Best Time To Be Photographed During My Pregnancy?

We have a client closet full of Couture Gowns, Italian Silks for Draping, Wings, crowns and headpieces as well as statement jewelry available to use for your session.



Do You Provide Maternity Dresses For The Shoot?




Yes! Our professional glam team will highlight your natural beauty and get you camera ready. 


Do You Provide Hair And Make-Up?




We only take a limited number of newborn due dates to allow flexibility in scheduling so we recommend booking when you are in your second trimester.

How far in advance should I book my newborn session? 

We put your estimated due date in our calendar and know to leave room roughly 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after so we can schedule you within the 7-21 days after birth.

2-3 hours

We send a detailed prep guide after you book that goes over everything you need to know and bring for your session.
