Psalms Photography / Katie Scott / Mountain House Newborn Photographer / Pleasanton Newborn Photographer

Welcome to my page! My name is Katie Scott, I am a photographer serving the Bay Area and Central Valley. I have a studio here in the gorgeous Pleasanton, California and in Mountain House, California where I have the pleasure of snuggling babies and capturing your families most precious moments. I am very passionate with my dream of creating lasting memories that my families can look back on with joyful emotions. Being a studio baby and newborn photographer, I have my littlest clients' safety and comfort at the very top of my priority list. I understand how fragile your baby is, and I take extreme measures to ensure all posing is safe and that bay is warm, cozy, and comfortable while in my studio. Please see below for what to expect in the studio and the steps you can take to book me. Thank you for taking the time to look upon my website!


"Katie is AMAZING! Extremely patient, professional and talented. She is always flexible with themes and ideas. Any idea or theme she makes it happen! She’s got great experience with newborns ( has taken safety courses), maternity session and Birthday photo shoots. We love the quality and quick response. Highly recommend Katie !"

We were so lucky to have Katie referred to us for our newborn photoshoot! We are first time parents and had no idea there was an ideal age range for these types of shoots. However, Katie was super accommodating and made it work! The studio was easy to find, lots of parking, and so warm and cozy! She had everything we needed in case we forgot diapers, wipes, etc. It's a beautiful studio with so many props and backgrounds. Katie was super sweet, patient, and just all around amazing with our baby! She definitely knows the ins and outs of how to do newborn shoots as well as safety and correct posing techniques. This was very important to us and she made us very comfortable! I cannot wait to schedule our next shoot with her. Her work is just high class and professional! Thank you for making this whole experience a breeze!

What To Expect

Step 1.

Contact us to see if we have availability around your shoot date. If you're inquiring about a maternity/ newborn shoot, sooner is better than later. Contact me as soon as possible to ensure I have a date for you available around your due date. After we decide on a date and specifics I will send you over a custom booking link that you have easy access to with all of your session information, where you can make your payments and view your contract.

Step 2.

You're in! woo! Now I will send you over your prep guide so you know exactly what to expect in your session. In this time, I encourage my clients to set up any needed pampering appointments. Maternity clients, get your nails done, set up those makeup/ hair appointments, you won't regret getting glammed up for your session!

Step 3.

Your session. Show up, have a beverage or snack on me, and relax! If you're a maternity client you can take a minute to relax and have some coffee or tea, get dressed, and have some fun! Your shoot is designed to be fun, relaxing, and confidence boosting. This won't be like those traditional portraits where you're forced to fake smile, I promise!

If you're a newborn client, I encourage you to relax on the studio couch and just take a minute to enjoy your snacks and beverages while I pamper your little one.

Step 4.

The Reveal. We will set up an appointment a few days to a week after your session for you to pick out your favorite photos. This is such an exciting appointment because it's the first time you're seeing these beautiful photos! At this appointment you will pick out your favorite images and order any special artwork/ albums if wanted.

*Sometimes this appointment is scheduled as an in-person or zoom appointment, depending on your preferences
