Infant &

Newborn & Baby Photography In Minnetonka, MN

If you’re expecting a baby, congrats! We’d love to capture your family’s special milestone in a series of intimate, beautiful photographs. As a Mom-owned business, we understand just how quickly these moments pass by, and we are dedicated to helping you preserve them as artwork and keepsakes that you will cherish for the rest of your life.

When it comes to affordable newborn photography…

  • We recommend scheduling your newborn photoshoot within the first 7-10 days after your child is born. Most parents get their newborn sessions reserved a couple of months or so before the due date, and then we adjust the timeline as needed.
  • Some parents like to schedule multiple photo sessions throughout baby’s first year: three month, six month, and one-year-old photoshoots with the infamous cake smash.
  • Family members welcome! We love capturing baby photos that include mom and dad, siblings, grandparents, and pets.

We know you have a lot on your plate already, and we will do everything we can to make your baby’s photography session a fun and relaxing experience – from the scheduling and planning to the photoshoot to the gallery reveal. Contact us today to get started!

  • Prepare yourself and other family members you want to include in the shoot. Even if you don’t plan to be in the photos, you might change your mind and decide to have one or two with your beautiful new baby. Some of our favorite images to capture are the baby over mom’s shoulder or resting in dad’s big hands.
  • Moisturize yourself and baby. If mom and dad want to be in the photos, your hands and possibly even your feet will play a role. Trim and tidy your nails and apply lotion.
  • Pack a few different outfits for your baby, yourself, and anyone else you want to include in the photos. Keep it simple, and dress for your comfort level.
  • Also pack any props or accessories you’d like to include in the photos, as well as any makeup or hair products you might need.
  • Loosen baby’s diaper and clothing about 30 minutes before the session, to give those little imprint marks time to disappear.
  • Feed, and burp your baby before the session to get them nice and sleepy. CLIX has a private room for you to feed, nurse, and change diapers as needed. And do not stress! If your baby needs to eat in the middle of the photo session, no problem. We can take a break.
  • Set your expectations. With babies, it is good to prepare for the best but expect the worst! Sad to say, but sometimes they just don’t want to cooperate. If your baby is not happy and you are getting tired, we can always schedule a reshoot.
  • Stay calm and relax – babies feel your stress. Know that you are in good hands and your photographer knows how to capture you at your best!
The standard studio appointment at CLIX is one hour. We plan for approximately 20 minutes in the studio camera room, and then about 40 minutes in the private viewing room. Of course, this can vary, and we certainly will book more time as needed.
The standard Studio process at CLIX:
  • Schedule an appointment – CLIX has many backdrop options, please share any preferences when making an appointment so that we can have your backdrops ready to go for you. But, if you do not have any expectations, you can discuss ideas with your photographer upon arrival.
  • Arrive for your session – meet your photographer and discuss expectations
  • Capture great images in studio.
  • Move to a private viewing room to view and order prints. In most cases, images can be available same day or next day. We print all photos onsite!
  • Don’t have time to view/order? With a deposit, images can be loaded online for viewing at home.
