I had a newborn photo shoot with Carly in her studio and it was such a pleasant experience. Carly was AMAZING with my baby (who can be very fussy). She kept her so calm and got her into beautiful poses without too much noise out of her. She was very soothing the whole time and took her time with getting her into poses so she wouldn't upset her. The studio is a great and welcoming space with so many props/outfits in a range of colors to chose from. She kept the room warm to keep the baby comfortable which I really appreciated. I was able to sit on the couch in the studio while they snapped photos. The photos turned out better than I could have imagined. She truly captured such a special moment in time. She is great at what she does. I will continue to use her for special events! Thank you so much Carly

My husband and I booked a newborn and maternity session with Carly. She was recommended to us by friends of ours and I am so glad she was. For my maternity session I had my hair and make-up done at the studio before the session and I would have never thought that it was important, but she suggested it and I am so glad she did. I love the way I look in my maternity photos. She helped me feel confident and beautiful and showed me exactly how to pose so I didn't feel awkward. I loved them so much that I bought ended up buying a canvas for my family room and I get so many compliments. It looks like it belongs in an art gallery!

We love our Wall Art

From start to finish Carly made us feel like we were in good hands. She was so great at my maternity session helping me choose the best dress for my body . Her dresses were gorgeous and very high quality and she had so many to choose from. One of her dresses I recognized from an actress I follow's own maternity shoot! She really helped us when it came time to choose our images because I wanted them all! But she was so patient and talked us through which ones to chose and what package was best based on our budget. If I could do it again I would have budgeted more for my session because I love my photos and I wish I had bought more wall art for my home. The end result was fantastic , better than I ever imagined!   I love my album and  show it off to everyone. Thank you Carly, cant wait for my newborn session.

she spent so much time with us

I had TWO amazing experiences with Imprinted Photography! First, they took me to a beautiful location I didn't even know even existed for my maternity shoot. They had such a great vision and made me feel so beautiful and I will cherish those photos forever! They were patient with me and constantly making sure I was comfortable and feeling ok! Second, I had them do a newborn shoot with my baby girl at 2 weeks of age. They were so patient and they exceeded my expectations on the final product! I get so many compliments on both of the photo shoots! The hardest part was selecting the ones I wanted because I loved every single one! I would highly recommend them and will definitely call them again when I need professional photos!

Fourth session with Imprinted PHotography

Fourth session with IP

- Allison L.

Carly just completed their 4th session with us yesterday and it was amazing as usual. We just had our second baby and they took the time to get every single image that we requested. I trust her entirely with my newborn and with my 14 month old. She is safety trained and knows exactly how to calm and soothe the babies to get them into those cozy, adorable positions. The prints and art we have received are beautiful and we are so happy we invested in these sessions. I will be using Imprinted Photography for years to come for all of our family shoots! 

baby whisperer

- Alyson S.

Working with Imprinted Photography was absolutely amazing. I recommend them 100%! Carly is like the baby whisperer, she was able to keep my newborn asleep long enough to get the photos that I dreamed of. I was just floored to see the quality of photos that Carly had taken. She made my little girl like a model. Carly was super flexible with a last minute booking as well as rescheduling times for the photo shoot due complications with my recovery. She was so understanding and very supportive. Carly made everything easy, it meant so much to me. These are memories that we will keep forever. Thank you so much Carly!

instilled a sense of trust

- Ryan K.

Imprinted Photography has done 3 shoots now with our family and I could not be more pleased. She were professional, incredibly accommodating and creative. We had my newborn session when my infant was 7 days old and immediately she instilled a sense of trust. It was clear that she knew what she was doing and she captured the most precious images of our little boy. I then invited them back for a Christmas shoot and she did not disappoint, the pictures were incredible! Anything I could dream of, they made a reality. I'm now expecting my second and I will be using her for years to come. I have recommended her to several friends and every has been so happy with their work. I'm so lucky I found them!!!

beautiful selection of props

- Aruna B.

Carly is amazing! We were sleep-deprived first-time parents looking for local photographers for a newborn shoot, and were SO SO glad we found her. She had a beautiful selection of  of props and was very accommodating and let us use a few things we brought as well. She was great with our newborn baby boy and so incredibly patient throughout the session. We absolutely loved how the pictures turned out (she clearly spent a lot of time perfecting each and every picture!), and will definitely be using her again and again!

recommend to all of my friends

- Kerry G.

We had a great experience working with Imprinted Photography for our newborn photos. Carly was great to work with: she was flexible with timing (important for a 1 week old who is not on a schedule!), and had a ton of backgrounds/blankets/props to use. After only a few minutes I had full trust in her with my newborn, as she was great handling her and keeping her calm. Most importantly, we were thrilled with how the photos came out! We received a ton of compliments, too! I recommend her to all my friends!


- Maaike H.

Amazing to work with! She was so patient with my 3 month old and really got fantastic shots of him. I can't wait to get more photos of my boys! We have used them for newborn shoots, cake smash shoots for our 2 youngest boys and we wish they were around for the oldest 2 growing up. Thank you guys for doing such an amazing job and being so great with our boys.

beautiful photos

- Astrid T

Carly has been amazing! From my maternity pictures to the newborn photos, the experience was amazing. I could've have asked for a better photographer. between poses for the baby, he was a little difficult but the pictures came out beautiful. The studio was amazing and even had snacks for us ready to go. Thank you for all your hard work!

We had a great experience with Carly from Imprinted Photography! We booked her for our maternity shoot and the weather wasn't too promising, but due to our tight schedule she worked with us to keep our day as we wanted and provided us with amazing photos that we love! Carly really listens to what you want and she provides you with all the information you need. She wants you to be 100% happy and will work with you to make your session personal and perfect for your desires. Whenever I had a question I could call or email Carly and she would get back to me with the answers. She is very thorough and cares about her work and clients. I am excited to use her soon for our newborn shoot as well. Thank you, Imprinted Photos. :)

listens to what you want

personable & Certified

- Melissa G.

Carly did an amazing job with our newborn's pictures! Carly knew exactly how to keep our little one comfortable throughout each different pose and worked quickly to get the most adorable photos. She is so personable and had a variety of props for us to choose from so we could pick the exact looks we wanted our son to be in. She also used items that family members created for us to add a special touch to the photos. When I spoke to Carly, she assured me they were certified to pose newborns as they took classes with nurses, which made me feel extremely comfortable choosing them. She also had one of the best photo packages that I researched. I would highly recommend Imprinted Photography to anyone looking for a photographer to capture such a special moment in their lives

highly recommend

- Nicole  S.

We highly recommend Imprinted Photography for your newborn baby photoshoot. They  and had plenty of outfits and props for us to choose from. They were flexible with our baby’s eating schedule and were understanding of modifications as the photoshoot progressed. Carly is clearly very experienced and knows how to get great shots while keeping the kids engaged and having fun. She was also quick to deliver the proofs to us for review and we were extremely pleased with the final product.
