Newborn Session: the $200 session fee includes:
Products are not included in the session fee.
In the pre-consult we get to know each other a bit and explore what you want from our photo session. You probably have questions for me and I provide information about preparing for the session and what to expect. We can talk at your home, another convenient location – such as a local coffee shop – or over the telephone. When you want images for your walls it can be helpful for me to visit your home before the photo session. After we schedule the session I will provide further details about what to wear and how to prepare. The session fee is due at this time. Payment methods are personal check, VISA, Mastercard, American Express or Discover card.
For the photo session I bring the studio to you – light(s), posing pillow, various seamless backdrops, multiple props and wraps. I take photographs using a variety of props and in numerous positions. We can also take images of your new baby with Mom and Dad, and with other siblings and family members. Newborn sessions can take a while as we work around the baby who may need feeding, changing, and cuddling breaks. We want the session to be relaxed and comfortable for everyone.
The image review and product ordering meeting takes place 6-10 days later. I present 30-40 images in a slideshow for you to enjoy. Then I will assist you in deciding on which products to order. See the product page for further information on the various options which we will have discussed in detail during the pre-consult.
Newborns photograph best in the window of 6-10 days after birth when they are sleeping a lot and the tiny bodies have yet to unfold so much. Please contact me well before the due date so that I can mark my calendar and we can take care of the pre-consult. After the little one arrives we will determine the specific day and time for the session.
