Whether your little one is an unexpected blessing, an answered prayer after countless years of tears, or a long-awaited adoption - your precious little one is a miracle.
As both a mom and a photographer, our family has also endured the roller coaster of each of these scenarios. I don’t know your personal story yet, each one is unique, but I do understand the importance of capturing every impossibly small detail - from the button nose to the tiny toes. Every pure, delicate feature is a gift and should be celebrated.
Destiny Tillery Photography is known for award-winning newborn photography that focuses on the tiny details, while also providing a customized, full-service photography experience. Your in-studio photos will focus on what’s most important: your little one and the bond you share. Prepare a spot on your wall; as your local newborn photographer, I provide frame-worthy, heirloom photography, guaranteed to be passed down to future generations.
Up to 3 hours of custom newborn photography

Presentation of 20-30 images during a personal design and ordering consultation

How can I schedule a newborn session when I don’t exactly know when I will give birth?
Don't worry; no one knows precisely when the baby will arrive. I will enter your due date into my calendar and then tentatively schedule your session between 10-17 days after your due date, depending on my availability on the day you deliver. Once your baby is born, you'll let me know so we can confirm the date and time as well as any other details and reminders.
When should I book?
Book your session as soon as possible to reserve your date! I schedule only a limited number of sessions per month to allow for due date flexibility, so secure your spot as early in your pregnancy as you can to ensure your session is reserved! Please don't delay in booking. I really want to meet YOUR new baby!!
When do newborn sessions take place?
While it's certainly possible to get fantastic shots of older newborns, for the best chance of ultra-sleepy and squishy babies, I prefer to schedule a newborn session between 10 and 17 days of age. However, if you're reading this and think, "Darn! I missed it!" Don't worry! Email me today and see if I can work you into my schedule. Chances are we can still get some beautiful photos (and perhaps sleeping) of your newest addition!
Where do the sessions take place?
All newborn sessions take place in my home studio in downtown Brandon, MS, where I have access to my collection of backdrops and props. Here, you'll enjoy a private hospitality room with toys for older kiddos, and even some refreshments to keep everyone happy!
How long does a session last?
Typically, a session can last between 2-3 hours. However, the time ultimately depends on how sleepy your baby is, how much they want to snack, etc.. I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help soothe them and settle into nap time!!
Can I bring a sentimental or heirloom item to be used in the session?
Absolutely! These are your photos, and I want you to love them! The birth of a new baby is so special, and though I supply everything we'll need for the session, feel free to bring something special to you.
Do you supply all those cute bonnets, hats, headbands and wraps?
Yes, I sure do! I have so many cute props; you wouldn't even believe it!
Can I request certain poses?
Yes, you sure can. Once you decide to book a session, you'll have the opportunity to fill out a questionnaire and tell me all about nursery colors, pose requests, and anything else you want me to know before the big day.
Can siblings and/or parents be in a few shots?
Of course! I recommend and encourage family and sibling photos be taken! For siblings, I kindly request that they arrive ready to be photographed during either the first OR last 30 minutes of the session. Going out to lunch or for some park playtime with a family member or family friend is way better than being cooped up in a studio for hours having to be still and quiet!
What should we wear for family photos during my newborn’s shoot?
I recommend wearing clothing that is neutral and classic. These will look good in any room of your home and will be timeless. Soft color and light patterns work well, too, but please steer away from bright pinks and shades of red. Please consider wearing small earrings and minimal jewelry for these photos. Once you've booked your session, please feel free to email me clothing choices, and I'm happy to help!
When and how will I receive my newborn’s session photos?
At the end of your newborn's session, we will schedule a day and time (typically in 2 weeks) for you to come back to the studio for your view & order consultation. At this consultation, you'll be presented with 20-30 edited photos and will have the opportunity to place your order.
Do you offer a payment plan?
Yes! Orders of $950 and over qualify for a 3-month payment plan. One third is due to place the order, and the following two payments are made the subsequent two months.
How do I book a session?
Either send me a message through my contact page, or email me at email@example.com. Once you book your session, I will email you with additional information on how to prepare for your newborn session.
