"After our newborn session was over, I wanted to have another baby just so I could have Charlsie do our pictures again!

 We had such a sweet and stress free experience, and our pictures are so beautiful."

Darshaya + Romain

“Very professional and Fun experience. You must try it!

I liked watching Maya be the center of attention and the unique poses she maneuvered her into. The props were fun too!"

Kelly + Mike

"Charlsie takes her time with the newborn session and the pictures show that.

So great to not feel rushed or stressed at all, you can trust her to capture your baby or family perfectly!

AMY + Curtis


Amy + Jason

"Having a family of six means that I have a LOT of personalities to deal with on picture day and getting them all to conform to one idea is very difficult. Charlsie was fast with her shots, and was well prepared with how to organize our family. the experience was painless and even FUN. No one complained and everyone walked away happy!"

Jessica + David

“Talent and skill rarely come together in a way that enhance an experience so much that price is no matter. Charlsie Oliverson Photography is an experience everyone should be fortunate enough to enjoy.”

amy + Jason

"I am not a very organized person but Charlsie helped me through this process very well. Helped me figure out how I should choose clothing colors and then sent me text updates the week prior to the shoot, the day before and the day of reminding me of times and places to meet. It was so nice to have such great communication during the whole process!"

Chira + eddie

“My favorite part of our session was how great and calm Charlsie was with our children. She scheduled everything to flow so nicely. We didn’t feel overwhelmed as we have in the past ... seeing the photos brought a tear to my eye."

Corbyn + brad

“after you have a baby you want pictures, but handing your new bay over to someone to pose them is SCARY! Not in this case Charlsie was amazing! And never have I seen someone so patient, kind, and gentle with a newborn!"

I am a newborn photographer currently living in Riverton WY. I started Charlsie Oliverson Photography in 2011 and I've trained with some of the best newborn photographers in the industry.  Making sure your baby is happy and safe during the session is my top priority.

As an introverted perfectionist newborn photography fits my personality perfectly.

Being able to take the time to meticulously pose baby and capture every newborn detail makes my heart so happy.

Most importantly, I am passionate about documenting families with heirloom albums that can be passed down for generations.

My name is Charlsie but I go by Charlie.  I am a newborn photographer in Riverton WY.

Newborn photography became my passion in 2012.  I've trained with some of the best newborn photographers in the industry.

Making sure your baby is happy and safe during the session is my top priority.

I am very meticulous and focused on details. (Necessary when posing and handling newborns)

Most importantly my passion doesn't stop when the picture is taken.  I want you to walk away with something long lasting that can be cherished and passed down for generations.  That's why every session comes with a custom heirloom album that your family will treasure.

you can contact me at anytime.  The ideal time to contact me is during your 2nd or 3rd trimester of pregnancy for the best chance of securing a spot.
If you are toward the end of your pregnancy or baby is already born don't hesitate to contact me.  I will try my best to accomodate you and fit you in.
I also recognize that adoption and premature births don't alway allow you to plan in advance.  i will do my best to help you out in these situations.

how should i contact you if i'm interested in a session?

The best way to contact me is by using the contact form on my website.  This sends me an email and text notification. 

I will then give you a call so we can schedule a phone consultation.  

when you contact me you are not committed to booking a session. i will answer your questions, check my availability and provide you with my welcome packet.

Once you have all this information you can decide if I am the photographer for you.

Do I need to provide my own outfits and props?

I provide everything you need for the baby, including beautiful handmade outfits, wraps, headbands, bracelets and accessories.

You will need to provide simple outfits for your family.

if you have a sentimental accessory you would like to include please let me know during our phone consultation.

what should i wear for the family pictures?

you will be provided with a welcome guide when you book your session.  this gives detailed information about what to wear and how to dress your family.

you can send me pictures and i'll be available to give you advice in preparation for your session.

the most important thing to know is keep it simple.

what is an heirloom album?

an heirloom album is a beautifully crafted archival album that will survive for generation if taken care of.

it includes 20 layfat pages on beautiful silk photographic paper. each page is mounted flush to a 1/32" board for durability.  you will choose from many beautiful linen, leather or velvet cover options and your babies birth stats will be embossed inside the back cover. 

when do i get my pictures back?

my turn around time is 2 weeks.  within 14 days of your session you will receive both your online gallery and heirloom album.  

if i am unable to meet the 2 week turn around time for whatever reason you will be notified in advance.

will you share my pictures online?

most families are anxious to see their pictures and share with family.  i will post a sneak peek to facebook and instagram within 2 days of your session.  i do not use any names when i post.  you are welcome to tag yourself but i will not tag you.

i also use images on my website, in my welcome packets and in advertising.

i respect your privacy and if you wish to have your images kept private i will remove the model release from your contract and respect your wishes.

where is your studio located?

my studio is located inside my home in riverton wy.  i do not travel for newborn sessions at this time.

access to my studio is by appointment only.

if you would like to visit my studio before booking please let me know and we will schedule a time.

Can i share the pictures to facebook?

Yes, you will have the ability to download a social media sized photo from your online gallery for easy sharing to facebook, instagram etc.
I do not want to distract from your beautiful family so i don't watermark your pictures.  i would appreciate photo credit when you share online.  you can tag my business page @charlsieoliversonphotography. or link to my website

do you have a session fee?

my session price of 550 is all inclusive.  this is for the session plus 30 beautifully retouched and edited images. 

you will also receive the digital file via an online gallery and print release so you can share on social media and reprint as necessary.  

but the absolute best part of your package is the beautiful custom designed heirloom album that you can enjoy for many years to come.

when is payment due?

the first half of your payment 275 plus sales tax is due when you book your session.  This is a retainer and secures your spot.

the final portion is due at the time of your session so i can get to work right away on your images and album design.

what are you doing during covid-19?

my studio is back in business but you are accepting some risk by seeking photography service during a pandemic.

I have always been extremely cautious and have kept my studio clean to prevent from any illness, rsv, flu etc. everything that touches your baby will be prewashed and fresh from the dryer when you arrive.
i have made changes to minimize in person contact and i will be wearing a mask during your session.  please let me know if you would like more details on what i am doing to prevent the spread of any illness.

What if something happens to my digital files?

unfortunately i receive devastating emails regularly from clients who have lost their pictures for various reasons. (computer crashed, phone got wet, misplaced, accidentally deleted, etc.)
Your online gallery is active for 1 year from your session date and digital files will be available to download during that time. 
 PLEase, please please save and backup you images.  digital files are not archival.  this is one of many reasons i include an heirloom album with your session.

do i get to select the pictures?

you will receive an online gallery with the final images.  you will have 2 days to select your favorite images and let me know if there are any images you do not like. 

This information will help me in designing your heirloom album.

When will my session be scheduled?

After you book a session I pencil in your due date and then we wait for baby. 

As soon as the baby is born you contact me and we will set an official date and time.

The ideal time is when baby is 6-14 days but we have some flexibility with that.
