UPDATE: due to Covid-19 sessions are only offered outdoor at this time. Processes have been implemented to allow for social distancing during session. For this reason I ask that you bring a blanket (something you think would look cute in your photos)to your session and any props you might want to add as I will not be supplying them temporarily. This is a safety measure.
(Outdoor) see availability details below (cannot be used for newborns or headshots) Includes up to 5 people it is $10.00 per person more than 5 ( see other details at bottom of page) You may do senior portraits but I do not offer yearbook photos.
$65.00 up to 15 min session.
$90.00 up to 30 min session.
$110.00 up to 45min session.
$130.00 up to 1 hour Must choose for CAKE SMASH (client brings cake) session
UPDATE: Due to Covid-19 I am currently only scheduling newborns due in June or later. If you have a May due newborn please call to inquire any changes
(studio only) 2 options
OPTION #1 MINI (Newborn only) temporarily allowing a parent pose. (no sibling)
UPDATE: Due to Covid-19 I am allowing 1 parent pose for this session (no sibling) at this time not allowing anyone but parents and newborns in the studio for this session.
$175.00 up to 1 hour This session is newborn only. (Mon-Fri day only)
This is a NEW option. Reasons someone may want to do a mini versus a full session:
No need to get ready for family portraits, you can consider scheduling a 30 min or full hour standard session (standard scheduling and pricing would apply) for family photos on a different day. Many of my moms aren't ready to be picture ready 3-14 days after delivery so waiting is beneficial for them since the newborn session must be scheduled right away, prior to birth and It is generally scheduled for around 1 week after birth, session typically takes place 3-14 days. Siblings, sometimes parents can be overwhelmed therefore trying to do newborn and sibling all in one session can be too much and they would prefer to focus on the baby. This also means that you can schedule your regular family/ sibling portrait session during nights and weekends if available but you must still follow the standard scheduling guidelines, only the newborns can and should be scheduled in advance.
Pricing, this is a great way to have an affordable professional session for those watching their budget but I still cannot give an estimate on amount of images as it will depend on how much the baby sleeps. You will be sent a form of information on tips for the session. If you are not willing to bring a pacifier to be considered for use then this is likely not the best option for you as soothing the baby is important to the flow. Arriving 30 min early, contacting via text the day after delivery or if you have reached your due date are requirements for this session.
If you have special requests or are wanting to bring items to use during the session this may not be the best option for you with the exception of hats or headbands. To maximize your results I have set up a system of flow that usually works best in maximizing your results and therefore if changes need to made they can take up time which in turn can slow the process therefore reducing potential output. I have plenty of wraps/props/etc no need to bring any of that.
See other details at bottom of page
OPTION #2 FULL (Newborn/Family/Sibling) Due to Covid-19 scheduling newborns due June or later
$240.00 up to 2 hour (Mon-Fri day only)
includes optional sibling/family portraits up to 5 people $ 10.00 per person more than 5 can be included **but newborn must be in every photo (see other details at bottom of the page)
This session must be scheduled right away, prior to birth. It is generally scheduled for around 1 week after birth, session typically takes place 3-14 days. You must contact me via text the day after delivery or if you have reached your due date as there are limited spots available for movement so this step is important and full details are sent in your guidelines at booking.If you are wanting to bring items to use during the session with the exception of hats or headbands please let me know ahead of time to maximize your results as I have set up a system of flow that usually works best in maximizing your results and therefore if changes need to made they can take up time which in turn can slow the process therefore reducing potential output. Bringing a pacifier for use if needed and arriving the 15 min early that are required are important. I know that not all parents choose to use a pacifier but bringing one allows you that option if baby will not soothe. As the same as all sessions I cannot give an amount of images as all babies are different, will respond to stimulation and sleep differently. Helpful tips will be sent with booking.I have plenty of wraps/props/etc no need to bring any of that.
