Newborn Session- $275


What is a newborn session?

A newborn session is the perfect way to capture all of those cherished moments of a new babies life. All their perfect fingers and toes, their adorable belly button and kissable nose.  You will have all the memories to treasure for years to come.


During newborn shoots, we run on newborn time. This means shoots can go anywhere from 3-5 hours to guarantee that we capture quality images. I always welcome siblings to be part of the photos, but its generally a good idea to bring a second adult to take your older children home after their pictures are finished. This way, your older children don’t have to sit around for the remainder of the shoot.

Please be mindful when dressing for your newborn shoot, as the studio temperature will be kept around 80 degrees in order to keep your baby warm and happy for photos.

You are more than welcome to bring your own outfits and props, but I have a studio full of outfits and props so its not necessary.


When is the best time to schedule a newborn session?

Typically the best time to schedule your session is during the first 5-10 days so we are able to get those sleepy curled up moments to cherish. At this age babies still retain some of their natural curl from being inside your tummy and are still very sleepy and pliable to allow for the best possible poses.


How long is a typical newborn session?

A typical newborn session takes anywhere from 2-3 (sometimes 4) hours.  We are on "baby" time, so if baby is hungry, of course baby will be fed. That goes for changing diapers, changing outfits, cleaning up messes, etc. There is no rush when trying to capture all those adorable baby moments.


Where can we have our newborn session pictures taken?

Sessions can be taken in my studio or on location for an additional $35 (to cover travel costs & loading and unloading of props)


What should we/baby wear?

During most newborn sessions, the baby will wear minimal clothing. I have lots of diaper covers, knit hats/diaper covers, headbands, bows, blankets, wraps and props that may be used. Other clothes, headbands, bows, blankets, etc. of yours are welcome as well. If you plan on getting some pictures with your baby, plan on wearing darker clothes.
