Newborn Session Details
Our newborn portrait sessions are designed for clients who desire a complete custom photography experience and above and beyond customer service. The process begins with a pre-portrait consultation at our studio, where we discuss our collective vision for your portrait session and plan the details, including clothing, backdrops, props, theme, colors, and genre. Next comes your portrait session, followed by an in-person ordering appointment at our studio. We will guide you through the process of choosing images to suit our extensive line of custom products, including a visit to your home to decide where your portraits will be hung and what finish would best suit your décor (if you so desire). The goal of the session is to create beautiful, timeless portraits to be cherished by your family and generations to come. While digital files are always available, it is our sincere hope that you will invest in beautiful wall art and keepsake albums as well.
The best time to photograph a newborn is in the first 12 days of life, while they still curl up in a ball and are super sleepy. It is best to schedule your newborn session when you are still pregnant, preferably several months in advance, as I book a limited number of newborn sessions. I also love to capture the radiance of expecting mamas, so I encourage you to schedule a maternity session as well (we offer Belly and Baby Collections). Since babies are often not born on their due dates, we’ll be flexible about the need to reschedule around the baby’s birth.
Newborn Session Investment
The newborn session fee of $250 includes up to 3 hours of studio session time, the pre-portrait consultation, the preparation of proofs, an optional in-home consultation, your private ordering appointment, and an online password protected gallery (after your order is placed). You will also receive a set of 25 custom fine art birth announcements. The session fee covers the photographer’s time and talent only; prints, products, and files are additional (except your complimentary birth announcements). We have a variety of collections to choose from, including Belly and Baby and Baby’s First Year Milestones.
