newborn session pricing guide and information

Let’s talk business first...And then we talk baby!

Sessions are paid for at the time of booking and are non negotiable.

General Session Fees pay for the time and talent of the photographer and the staff only. These fees do not include prints or full-resolution/printable digital files. Prints and Digitals are available for an additional cost during your gallery reveal.

"Ten Little fingers, ten perfect toes, fill our heart with love that overflows."

2 hours of professionally and creatively styled photography posing your newborn in natural lighting in the comfort of your own home. A room with beautiful natural light streaming in is ideal!

Image retouching to smooth cracked or flaking skin, basic facial feature enhancements and creative edits that can include composites and black and white images.

An in-person image gallery reveal for the proud parents and family who wish to view the 10 or more edited images for the first time and consider which images will be purchased as prints, canvases, albums or other gifting ideas. A $100 minimum print order is required!

Parents, at the gallery reveal, can select 2 images to use as their “sneak peeks” to share online: sized appropriately for Facebook, Instagram and email (low resolution digital files that can’t be printed). "Sneak peeks" will be supplied after the print order is confirmed and paid in full.

Information for prints, canvases and other gifting ideas will be presented at gallery reveal and orders can be placed that day or anytime thereafter.

A blog post will be created and uploaded to my website highlighting your newborn session experience and offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the day. I encourage you to share this link on social media.

Everything you need to know to prepare for our creative and exciting newborn photo session...

The details matter

Newborn portraits are generally best done within the first 5-12 days after the baby is born. It’s best to reserve your session about 2 months prior to your delivery date. As soon as the baby is born please contact me within 48 hours so we can get a date scheduled for your newborn session. It’s important to add that I can always photograph an older newborn. While older newborns may not be as sleepy, we can still capture stunning images of your little one.

A well lit and warm room

I prefer to come to your home for the 2 hour session. This affords me the chance to see you in your natural surroundings; so in addition to the posed portraits, I can also capture some lifestyle-type images to add to your image gallery. Your personal space usually relaxes both the baby and the rest of the family. I will schedule a visit to your home during your pregnancy to get a feel of your home and look for options of where to set up my gear and props. I can always provide in-studio sessions for anyone with no available space or proper accommodations. No worries!

Sleepy and cozy

We will work together to customize your newborn session. Props, colors, textures and style are all integral elements of my finished product, my art!

The session is 2 hours. The room temperature needs to be around 75 degrees to ensure the baby’s comfort so others there for the session should dress comfortably. During the session, safe and gentle posing will be used to focus on the innocence and beauty of your little one. I will always keep a parent no more than an arms length away at all times to ensure the baby’s safety and comfort. I strongly encourage the use of a pacifier during the session. It’s been my experience to see that a pacifier definitely helps the newborn to settle better into a posed position. I can respect your decision to not use a pacifier and if so, we will find other soothing techniques.

After reading through all of this, you may feel overwhelmed with information. Relax, I am going to be with you through every step of this process to be sure your newborn session is a great experience. I know you value photography and appreciate my skills. And I know you want every detail of your newborn preserved forever in portraits that will be cherished for years to come. Together we will create gorgeous images and beautiful art for your home.

Contact me today for more information or to schedule your newborn session. PS. I also do maternity and maternity boudoir sessions.
