  • Welcome!

    My name is Mary Elizabeth Gochnauer but I go by my initials (MEG) :-) I believe photography is an art and every image should be crafted and composed completely dependent on the subject – who they are and what they represent.

    I specialize in newborn, child and family photography in the Dallas area and have been a photographer for about 10 years. I am a Mommy of two wonderful children who are my everything and I have them to thank for propelling my photography and career into what it is today.

    I am so happy you decided to check out my page! I look forward to working with you and your family! If you're in a hurry you can always give me a call at 214-808-0759 to book your session!

Newborn Photography Dallas TX – Baby & Family Photographer

Bringing your newborn into the world is a moment you will cherish for the rest of your life. These small, delicate creatures grow up so fast that it seems like if you blink you miss the newborn stage. I want to help you capture this small window of time and make it last forever because newborn photography is more than about taking photos of a sleeping baby, it is about making the most precious of times stand still. Mary Elizabeth Photography is a newborn photographer serving Dallas, TX and the surrounding area.

Newborn photography is all about timing, and not just from the camera’s point of view. The best time for a session with me (your local Dallas newborn photographer) is between 3-14 days old, although I believe the very best time is between 5-7 days. The perfect time to schedule an appointment is when you are still pregnant, because these spots fill up so fast. If there is an available time slot and you have already had your baby, I will definitely not hold that spot back from you. For newborn photography, time is of the essence and it is the newborn’s essence that will make these photos so perfect and endearing.

It seems every movement your newborn makes is something you wish you could capture and keep forever. Her eyes opening and glancing around. His mouth open as he sleeps. Even when crying, there is something precious and adorable about it. There really isn’t a moment to lose when it comes to newborn photography, and I will be certain not to miss one of them.

Our newborn photography appointments at Mary Elizabeth Photography usually last between 2-4 hours, which allows for feeding time, diaper changes, and any other needs your newborn may have. At Mary Elizabeth Photography, the camera always waits for the newborn because with such little time at this stage, it is wise not to rush.

The location of where you want to take these photos is also very important. Our studio is equipped to be the perfect setting for newborn photography and I am certain to make you feel like you never stepped out of the comfort of your own home. If you prefer to take these photos at your own home, I am more than willing to accommodate, although for an extra charge. I want you and your newborn to feel at ease for every second of the newborn photography photo shoot so baby’s comfort and grace will come out in every image.

Before you make your decision of a newborn photographer, I will personally conduct an in-person or over-the-phone consultation with you in order to ensure you have a chance to discuss your preferences or anything in particular you are looking for from your newborn photography session. If you have questions about prints, costs, or editing, please visit the Sessions page under the About tab. If you are ready for a session with your Dallas newborn photographer, please fill out the information in the contact page or give me a call at 214-808-0759 and I will reach out to you shortly!
