Thank you for taking the time to consider Maria Watts Photography.
My style is classic, genuine, sweet and heartwarming. When I look through my lens, I’m looking to create images that are full of emotion. I love photographing newborns and babies because I know from personal experience how quickly that time passes. And I enjoy working with families and children just as much, capturing the real expressions that come when kids are just being kids and you’re just being you.
Most sessions are scheduled about four weeks in advance, but may be scheduled with less notice; please contact me to check availability. Newborn sessions are scheduled around mom’s due date and the actual session date is determined once your baby has arrived. Ideally, newborn sessions take place one week to 10 days after baby’s birth.
Before the Session
It’s partly about what I’m seeing through my camera lens and when I choose to click the shutter, but it’s mostly all about you. What moves you? What moments are you hoping to capture in time? I look forward to talking with you about your expectations, discussing options, and outlining your specific poses or requests.
The session fee is due at the time of booking or during a pre-session appointment and is non-refundable. Your date is reserved once I have received the payment and a signed contract.
On the day of your session, make sure everyone is rested and fed. We can reschedule if your child is not feeling well. You might want to bring snacks and drinks, a change of clothes, wet wipes and soothing items. Simple, classic clothing that you’re comfortable in looks great in photos.

During the Session
I photograph only in natural light, and your session can take place in your home or at a favorite outdoor location. I bring well-cared-for professional equipment along with my creativity, gut instinct, good judgment, knowledge, spontaneity, dedication, professionalism and passion.
I’ve been described as having a quiet spirit, putting both parents and children at ease from the start. I take the time to get to know my clients and sessions are playful and relaxed. That joyful energy is evident in your photos.
After the Session
I will custom edit the best images from your session and your final photographs will consist of both color and black and white options. Within about a week or two of your session, I will provide a link to your gallery and the information to digitally download your images.
