Cassie West Photography – Connecticut Newborn Photographer

Having a newborn is such a beautiful time in your life. As a mom, I knew newborn photos were something I needed to have because they are only little for so long and soon I would forget how tiny those little fingers and toes were. I want to be there with you capturing these little details and moments that we so easily forget as our little babies grow older.

All newborn sessions require a $100 retainer to book that will be deducted from your package total. The remaining balance is due at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled newborn session.


Absolutely in love with the photos Cassie took of our little one. She handled her with such care as if she were her own. She was super sweet and extremely professional. So thankful we were able to do this in such a crazy time! – Meghan S

Cassie took the most stunning pictures of our sweet baby girl! My husband and I will cherish these beautiful images for all of our days. Cassie is relaxed, caring, and beyond talented! It truly takes someone with a unique set of skills to be-able to capture such beautiful newborn photos. I am so grateful that we chose Cassie to photograph our baby girl and I look forward to having her photograph our daughter as she grows. Consider yourself blessed if you have Cassie photograph your little one! – Sarah B

Cassie was awesome with our daughter! Super professional and so kind. Everything was very clean and sanitized since we went during covid. We are in love with the pictures she took of our daughter and was super quick to get them back to us. – Chelsie V

I recommend booking your session with Cassie West Photography as soon as possible – usually in the second trimester. You choose the newborn package you’d like and pay a retainer. This reserves your due date on my calendar so when baby arrives (early, late or on time) you are all set! I only take a certain number of newborns per month so availability is limited.


You email us to let us know your new addition has arrived and we will choose a date for the session when baby is between 7-21 days old. I schedule sessions on weekday mornings and newborn sessions are held at my Newington, Connecticut studio. You will receive a link to a newborn questionnaire to fill out asking color preferences and a prep guide to let you know exactly what to expect, wear and bring for your newborn session.

I provide all props, headbands, hats, wraps, etc for the session. My goal is to make this process as easy as possible for you.


You will receive a large unedited gallery of images you’ll be able to choose your favorite & final photos from. Once the edited images you’ve chosen are ready, you will then get a final gallery with images that you can download, print and share!


All of Cassie West Photography’s packages are “all-inclusive” and include a certain number of digital images. Print products are available a la carte, however, the digital images do include a print release that will allow you to print your photos at your lab of choice.

A $100 retainer is required to reserve your due date on my calendar. Prices are subject to 6.35% sales tax. Prices are subject to change.
