Newborn Portraits

     Custom photography at this special time is an investment that will you will cherish for a lifetime.  The moments captured through photographs will be precious memories of the little details of this special time.  To capture this special time, newborn sessions are best photographed within the first 10 days of life.   At this age babies are still sleepy and are easy to position into adorable poses.  Contact me before your delivery date so I am able to set some time aside for your bundle of joy.  It is best to contact me at least 2-3 months prior to your due date to guarantee a spot on my calendar,  and you will get a $50 early booking discount.  Most sessions are typically booked 2-4 months prior to due dates.   A $50 deposit  is required to reserve your session date and time.  

    Your session includes a consultation including a form that gives me some insight into your style so that I can create a custom session that will give you memories that will last a lifetime.  You will experience a 2-4 hour session at my home studio.  This allows us to take as many breaks as you or your baby needs as well as time to feed the baby.   Your photos will be available online for previewing 2-3 weeks after your session.  For your convenience, you can order prints and products directly from my website, or if your prefer I can order for you 

     Newborn babies photograph best in their birthday suits.  I also have a large collection of hats, headbands, ties, props, and blankets to use during the session.  However, if you have any special memorabilia that you would like to have your baby photographed with please feel free to bring it.  Each photo produced in your session is the result of numerous hours of preparation before, during, and after the session.  Your session is a result of many hours of photography and newborn photography education,  thousands of dollars worth of props and equipment, and a true passion all which creates a custom session that will give you beautiful images that you will cherish.

***Baby Registry***

When your book a newborn session, you automatically are enrolled in the baby registry.  This allows family and friends to purchase gift certificates for prints, products, and future baby sessions during your baby’s first year.  You will be given cards to include in your baby shower invitations or to hand out to family and friends.  This is a great gift as photos are an investment that lasts a lifetime.

Digital Images  Your previews will be uploaded and ready to order from a printing lab that I recommend.  You may also purchase a digital images of individual photos, up to 5 photos,  or the complete gallery through the website.  I also offer a custom flash-drive of all of the photos in the gallery.  Flash drive purchases come with an account with an excellent photo lab where you can get quality prints at an affordable price (4 x 6's start at 19 cents, 8 x 10's are under $2.50).  Both the digital download and the flash drive options allow you non-profit personal usage rights to print photos at a lab of your choice, although I highly recommend mpix.com as they produce quality professional looking photos at an affordable price.  A Digital Print Release Form signature is required.

***I am not responsible for and cannot guarantee the quality of photos that you have printed from an outside lab.
