We started Nappy Time Portraits in the Austin area of Texas, in September 2018. Since then, we have created many seasonal and special photography scenes, as well as matched outfits, to capture special moments in a child’s growth. During a baby's first year, there's only so much you can do with professional photographers and posing in studios. So Nappy Time Portraits let your sleeping child be the star of his or her own fantasy world, making your baby pictures look like they came from a story book! We also have standing photography sets for toddlers and young children. You can choose the photo backdrop that suits you and we can come to your home. In the comfort of a familiar place and surrounded by familiar friends and toys, your children will naturally smile in the picture.
In October of 2020, when COVID-19 hit us miserably, we offered a 753 photography session (753 is a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan for three- and seven-year-old girls and five-year-old boys celebrating the growth and well-being of young children) to those who could not or decided not to go back to Japan to celebrate with their children. Our reputation spread and we now do various types of photography sessions, including family, senior, graduation, holiday, maternity photos, etc. We go ANYWHERE to capture your family’s special moments! We offer a unique, tailored, and flexible photography opportunity.

"Amazing photos. Whimsical and beautiful. Nappy Time Portraits was very responsive and so dedicated to her art! She communicated throughout the process and guided us through our choices. Highly recommend for not just kids photography but for family photos as well! All her props are handmade! Pricing is very reasonable for what you get!"
"Nappy Time Portraits is such a fun and creative photographer. Thank you for capturing this important milestone for my family : )"
"Sonoe makes great costumes and backgrounds for every event! If you're looking for something unique and adorable to capture photos of your little one in, come to her events!"
"I recently got my senior pictures taken with Sonoe and it couldn’t have been a better experience! I am not used to taking professional photos so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the environment she creates is so positive and I felt so confident and empowered during the session! If you are looking to do a photo shoot with kimono, her collaboration with Miyako from Kimono Mosaique makes the process very straightforward. My pictures turned out beautiful and me and my family hope to do business with Nappy Time Portraits again. "
"I have been using their service repeatedly since January 2021. Sonoe Neko Tarbox does such an amazing job at capturing the delightful moments of life. As a published author, instructor and motivational speaker, I need various different kinds of portraits and she is excellent at suggesting ideas, creating magical moments and fun. She even came all the way from Austin to Belton where I currently live. Sonoe is such a charming lady. It is such a pleasure working with her. I am sure you will love working with her too. I look forward to the next session with her. Thank you Sonoe-san!!🥰"
"She has such a huge passion about being a photographer and has a great skill to entertain her clients during the photoshoot as well which is so much fun even by watching her job! She does incredibly amazing work!! I highly recommend her!!!"
