our newborn sessions take place at our beautiful studio located in vintage downtown garland texas. 

we prefer to see newborns between 7-14 days old to ensure we can capture those sleepy curly poses. 

chelle is a posed newborn photographer... meaning she uses a professional newborn posing bag to position your baby as well as appropriate props such as a bucket. to ensure your baby's safety, chelle hand selects each prop. 

chelle cates photography is a professionally trained newborn studio. chelle has mentored with the top newborn photographers to bring knowledge and expertise to your session. years of training and perfecting each pose with precise technique and skill. 

every precaution is taken to keep your baby safe and secure. chelle cates photography is insured and registered with professional photographers of america. each person who touches your baby is also vaccinated with current whooping cough and flu vaccines.
