Congratulations on the birth or the upcoming birth of your little one! This is an exciting and fleeting time in your lives. Before you know it, he or she will be sitting up, crawling, and then off to kindergarten! It’s so important to capture these moments before they’re over. I offer two options for newborn sessions.
Posed Newborn Portraits
These take place in my home studio, within the first 2 weeks after birth, ideally between days 5 and 10 but within the first two weeks. These sessions often last 2-3 hours, as newborns will likely need at least one feeding while you are here, and we may need to spend some time soothing him or her to sleep. If you (the parents) are comfortable, I love to incorporate family pictures. Siblings are also welcome. Because it is a longer session, it typically works better if someone brings the big brother or sister and then takes them home after we are finished. If this is not an option, I do have a television and toys in the room next to my studio that you are welcome to use. A newborn gallery has at least 25 edited images, some in color and some in black and white.
The newborn session fee is $200, which includes a pre-session consultation (via email or phone), the session, and a viewing gallery with at least 20 individually edited images. There are no digital files or products included in the session fee. Packages start at $300. For a complete price list, please email me at email@example.com
I do offer a newborn mini session option as well, which is about 60 minutes in studio. The session fee for the mini session is $150, and packages begin at $250.
Your other option is a lifestyle session, which would take place in your home. I’ll document your family in your setting: the baby in the nursery, you holding your little one in a rocker, lying on your bed, etc. These sessions can take a place a bit later, but typically within the first month. A standard lifestyle gallery will also have at least 20 edited images.
The session fee for a lifestyle session is $150 and, like the studio newborn session, includes a pre-session consultation (via email or phone), the session, and a viewing gallery with at least 20 individually edited images. There are no digital files or products included in the session fee. Packages start at $300. For a complete price list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
