Cleveland's Baby Whisperer

Newborn photography is much,  much more than having a camera, or even a successful photography business. It is an art, it is something that is learned and practiced, but first and foremost, there is health and safety. By entrusting your newborn to Ellie Mellie, you are putting your baby in the safest hands, with the most experienced photographer in North East Ohio. 


Ellie Mellie Photography is proudly PIXIS safety certified for basic and advanced newborn posing, as well as a certified  PIXIS safety instructor.

We have extensive experience working with preemies as well as multiples. 


Ellie Mellie's entire staff, as well as our own husband & children are fully immunized. We thoroughly clean all of our props & linens and use dye and fragrance free cleaners, specific for newborns. 


We practice safety in posing & handling babies as the most important aspect of our sessions. This means baby is always comfortable, comforted & cozy.


I encourage you to schedule a time to come visit the studio. You can tour the space, take a look at all our inventory & of course, we can meet! I don't want Mom or Dad feeling nervous about working with a new photographer.

Understanding Posing & Your Package

3 poses doesn't mean 3 pictures. 1 pose can yield a wide range of images; achieved in different angles, composition and framing. So there will be at least 25-30 images for you to choose from.

The client does get to choose what poses they would like for us to attempt, including, family, sibling, or just baby images - OR- you can leave it up to us to design your session and pick the poses we feel would be best suited for your baby.

Ultimately, if you know you would like more than 3 poses, it is best to go with a package that will allow for a larger number of poses. Babies are best shot before 16 days old, so don't compromise if you don't have to. Take advantage of your babies smallest days.


All these poses can be modified in a range of ways, including being done on the bean bag or on/in a prop. Please know when requesting posing, it may not necessarily be done identically in order to meet the comfort of your baby.
