Delaware and Philadelphia area newborn baby photographer, Blueprint Photography, offers newborn photography, maternity photography and baby’s milestones sessions to document baby’s first year. A trusted photographer for over 8 years, Blueprint Photography’s style is calming and timeless.

Being safety certified ensures you are choosing a photographer that puts your baby’s safety first. Experience, creativity, quality, and professionalism is what sets Blueprint Photography apart from the rest.

The photography studio is conveniently located on the border of Delaware and Pennsylvania, approximately 10 minutes from Hockessin, DE and Kennett Square, PA.

Please use the Contact Form at the bottom of this page to inquire about your own newborn or maternity session!

Studio newborn sessions are held in my Hockessin, Delaware studio, usually during the first two weeks of life. Please do not hesitate to call if your baby is a bit older! Your session will incorporate family and sibling images as well as stunning images of your baby alone. Each session time may vary, but can take anywhere form two to four hours to complete. Sessions are “baby-led,” which means we run on the baby’s schedule (feeding, snuggling, and rocking when the baby needs it).

The studio is fully stocked with neutral and soft props for your session, and together we will design your sessions based on your color preferences. Using “earthy, organic” tones and props, I design my sets to be timeless and focus on the baby.

Studio newborn sessions are scheduled on Tuesday or Thursday mornings at 10am.

Maternity sessions can be held in the studio or at a location of your choice. Studio sessions are held on Tuesday or Thursday mornings, while on-location sessions are held on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday afternoons, approximately an hour before sunset. Spouses and older siblings are encouraged to join the session, as well! Please inquire about maternity session fees and packages.


A $150 session fee reserves your due date in the calendar. The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer, including the planning for your session, prop usage, and gallery preparations. All wall art, products, and digital images are purchased separately.

Approximately two weeks after your photo session, you will be invited back to the studio to view your artwork. During your Reveal & Ordering appointment, you will be able to select your beautiful images and purchase prints, albums, and digital images on a USB.

I consider it my duty as a photographer to provide you with QUALITY products. All of my products that are offered are heirloom products–which means you will be able to pass these images along to your children and your children’s children. Packages begin at $395 and include a combination of printed products and digital files. Please inquire for my full Product Guide for more options.


Stunning, high-quality albums carefully display the precious images of your newborn and beautiful family. Printed on lay-flat paper, the colors and sharpness are incomparable to consumer printing labs. Available with a keepsake box for displaying on a shelf or coffee table.

Professionally printed on Kodak Professional Supra Endura VC Digital Paper for brilliant image quality. Prints are mounted on 3mm styrene to prevent sagging and warping over time. Creating gallery walls with your images is simple, and all digital packages come with professional printing credits complimentary.

Images are available for you to share digitally. Images are saved on a gorgeous crystal USB drive. All packages include a set number of digital images for you to keep digitally.

How soon should I schedule my newborn session / maternity session with Blueprint Photography?

I recommend reserving your due date in the Blueprint Photography calendar between 16 weeks and 36 weeks. Reserving early guarantees you availability in the calendar. Once your baby is born, you will email me within 2 days of giving birth, and we will set your appointment. We will schedule for you to come to the studio within 5 to 15 days of the baby’s birth.

Maternity sessions are scheduled between 33 and 36 weeks, so please contact me before then for scheduling. Maternity sessions are scheduled on weeknights (Monday-Thursdays) at an outdoor location.

Please call Jamie at 302-668-6058 or email to reserve your session.

My baby was born last week. Can I still have a newborn session?

Yes! Please give me a call to check availability. You can reach me at 302-668-6058. Since newborns are born on their own schedules, my calendar does remain flexible. I am usually able to schedule in a last-minute client upon request.

What should I bring for my session?

The studio is stocked with lots of items that baby may need such as diapers and wipes, burp clothes, water, etc. However, please bring baby’s food (nursing mamas, bring anything that helps to comfortably nurse in the studio; bottle-fed babies should have an ample supply of formula.) We want your baby to be as calm and sleepy as possible, and a well-fed baby will be happier. Please bring one pacifier for the baby.

Do I need to buy any props for the baby poses?

Nope! The Blueprint Photography studio is fully stocked with beautiful props, wraps, blankets, and accents for your session. Please refrain from purchasing clothing or props. Often times clothing will be too large and not every item will photograph well as a prop. Blueprint Photography strives to create a neutral gallery, using earthy and organic tones and items.

When will I see my gallery of images?

After your session, we will check the calendar and schedule your Reveal and Ordering appointment, approximately 2-3 weeks after the session date. You will be presented with your gallery of images as a slideshow. Time will then be dedicated to deciding on which images you’d like to order.
