Every session begins with an initial consultation, either over the phone or through digital communications. I like to get to know my clients a little, know what their expectations are, and also ensure we are a good fit for working together with the same goals in mind. I have a questionnaire that covers everything I need to know, including the due date, names, siblings' names, ages, and information I need to start planning your session. It includes what colors, styles, and imagery you are drawn to and what products you are interested in. And if you are interested, we can set a time for you to visit the studio to get a better idea and feel for the products I offer and what the final outcomes of your session will look like.
A non-refundable session fee of $300 is required to book your due date. If the baby decides to make his/her debut early, you notify me immediately, and we re-schedule your session within 2-14 days of age. Make sure not to schedule any vaccinations the day before or circumcisions within three days before the session. All you have to do is rest and let me take care of all the planning.
The fun part! Sessions are 2-4 hours long. I will give you every bit of information you will need for the day. How to prepare for the newborn session, what to bring to the session, and what to expect during the session. I include all props and accessories, so you don't have to worry about a thing. However, you are welcome, of course, to bring anything sentimental, career-related, or hobby-related items you want to be incorporated into the session. Clients love watching their little ones get posed ever so gently in the sweetest setups and imagining the final edited image they will get to enjoy and remember this day by.
The photos have been taken individually and carefully looked at, lightly edited, and are ready to be shown. My client's favorite part of the entire experience is getting to see their beautiful images for the first time. My favorite is when I see tears from their eyes while watching their Newborn images flash before them in the slideshow I have created.
Your Viewing/Ordering appointment will be scheduled 1-2 weeks after the session. This is where you'll have the opportunity to choose the photographs to be fully edited and choose what you would like to have as prints, albums, canvas, or a variety of other handcrafted photo products I offer. This is your time to ask questions, place orders, and get excited about your images.
Newborn portraits are best pre-scheduled. Choose a date 7-10 days after your due date. This ensures your session and the ability to reschedule if needed.
Newborn sessions are up to three hours and include several poses and backdrops. You're welcome to bring along anything you'd like your baby to be photographed with. However, you don't need to. We provide a variety of newborn wraps, headbands, hats, and props.
Prices range depending on your photographic needs. Most clients invest between $600 and $1000 for their portrait collection. We offer both full-resolution digital collections and heirloom-quality printed art pieces.
