When should you contact me? As soon as you know you are pregnant! It's never to early to give me a call or send me an email. I will be sure to mark my calendar for your baby's arrival, knowing he or she may not come on your due date. (o:
When is the best time to photograph newborns? The best opportunity to get those precious newborn pictures is during the first 6 to 10 days of life. Be sure to give me a call (or email) to let me know as soon as your newest bundle has arrived. I will be able to schedule your session date as soon as I get the call.
What does it include? Up to a 3 hour session with me! I realize your baby needs time to eat and rest during your session. You can’t rush a precious newborn baby and I will spend plenty of time with you and your baby in order to capture those sweet moments you are hoping for.
Where will the session happen? Most of my newborn sessions take place at my studio in Victor. If you would like me to come to your home for the session, I charge an additional $125.
What do I need for my baby? I am prepared - I have many newborn “props” from hats, headbands, and diaper covers to cocoons and wraps - I have it all! Of course I will also use any special props or clothes you provide during the shoot. Backdrops, baskets and heaters are just a few of the additional items I bring to get those adorable pictures. I provide multiple blankets and waterproof pads for all those accidents that WILL happen during the shoot. The naked newborn pictures are my personal favorites and accidents are sure to happen. All props and blankets are washed in all natural detergent before every session. Your session also includes access to an online gallery and slide show of ALL your images. You can share this link with your local and long distance family and friends for viewing. You can also order quality prints of all sizes right through this link that will ship right to your house.
How much? Newborn sessions start at $450 and include digital files. Grow With Me clients receive the entire gallery of images. PLEASE NOTE, newborn sessions take place during the WEEK as my weekends often book up months in advance. If a weekend is available and you would like a session on the weekend, an additional $100 fee is added. Don't hesitate to contact me anytime during your pregnancy. I have been known to squeeze in last minute newborns, since these special sessions tend to be my favorite!
