Our Studio

About Our Studio...

Welcome! We are Creative Exposures Photography: a custom portrait studio located in Omaha, NE. We specialize in newborn and baby portraits and believe in the importance of capturing your little ones as they are. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible images and experience. We were founded on the principle that everyone should have something to look back on and to share these memories with their loved ones for years to come.

Each of our portrait sessions include your pick of outfits and accessories from our expansive closet. We can customize each session to match your style and color preferences. All of our sessions come with digital images for you to print, share, and enjoy! Are you looking for professional prints and products? We offer those, too!
