Newborn Portrait Sessions

Newborn sessions are my joy!  I’ve said it thousands of times, but what I will capture for you is forever.  Those fleeting moments when your baby fits just perfectly in the palms of your hands and curls sweetly in way that make you think you’re getting a tiny peek of what life was like in the womb all those months.  The newborn stage passes by the quickest.

Newborns are best photographed between 3-14 days old.  Please contact me ASAP to schedule your newborn session, as most newborn sessions are booked 2-3 months in advance and I take a limited number of newborns each month.  You may contact me anytime during your pregnancy with your estimated due date for tentative booking.  Sessions are held in my studio where I have access to all my gorgeous props, hats, headbands and backdrops to choose from.  Upon booking, you will receive a link to my custom made informative Newborn Session Prep Guide full of information gathered over the past few years from workshops, classes and research to help you prepare and ensure an amazing session.

Newborn Session Retainer $150 

Newborns are scheduled around your expected due date and I block my schedule accordingly to accommodate the babies own plans for arrival.  Due to this, I take a limited number of newborns every month and require a $150 retainer and signed contract to secure your session.  This retainer is applied to the total amount due.

It is my goal to create finished high end art work that stands out and is unlike anything you've seen before. Pieces to treasure for years to come and that you can admire daily and proudly display in your home. These pieces can be gorgeous wood prints, beautifully designed canvas collages, stunning acrylic and metal prints, or heirloom quality albums in leather and man made finishes. All of these options are available along with options to purchase high resolution digital files.

My hope is once you come to the studio and see and touch the gorgeous professional art samples I've ordered and designed for my clients, that you will be walking away from your photography session with more than just the digital files.  More than the files that remain stored on your computer, CD and USB drives that will inevitably be lost and outdated long before you're up to the task of deciding what to do with your images.  My goal to help you line the walls of your home with personal custom art pieces.  I want you be able spend time oohing & ahhing with friends and family while looking at your photos printed in gorgeous albums instead of having them trapped on your phone.

Because of the nature of my job, and the exposure I have to brand new babies, I ask that if ANYONE in your family is sick, that you not bring them to your session.  I work extremely hard to ensure my home and studio are free of germs and sickness and take the health and safety of my clients seriously.
