FOR POTENTIAL NEWBORN CLIENTS
As a Registered Nurse and mom of three NICU babies I especially understand the importance infection control and baby safety is my primary concern. I limit the number of prebooked newborns per month. If you haven't pre booked I may still be able to fit you in. I accept a limited number of newborns per month so that I am able to coordinate everyone who has pre booked before 30 weeks in the event everyone comes in one week; babies are on their own timeline. I conduct their session typically within two weeks of birth. I don't assign a specific date until baby is born. I do like to aim for about 34 weeks for maternity but this is not a hard and fast rule.
FOR PARENTS PLANNING AHEAD BEFORE BABY HAS ARRIVED
There are options in which you pay in full in advance of your session and the session fee is waived. For a full newborn session (my most popular option,) $799 plus tax includes the session, a $250 canvas credit, 20 digital files printable to 8x10, and a $200 album credit, if booked by your 30th week of pregnancy your choice of studio maternity mini* or sitter mini session may be added for $99 for in studio and $199 for location. Full Newborn sessions include up to two hours in session, customized styling, if desired immediate family or siblings may be included, and studio rental.This is my most popular option, as 100% of your investment is applied to product. You can upgrade canvas size and alter the print sizes within that credit as well. Other package options are also available in addition to flexible payment plans. You'll read more about them below.
Maternity sessions are reserved for clients who are also booked for their newborn session. If you are interested in adding a location maternity session or are beyond 30 weeks pregnant, it can be added as an upgrade for $279.
IF BABY HAS ALREADY ARRIVED
or if you are not interested in a pre-purchased collection, the creative fee for the full newborn session is $279, prints are sold a la carte, with digital files for reprinting up to an 8x10 of the images purchased for print provided when an additional minimum purchase of $300 is met. No digital images or prints are included with this option.
As mentioned siblings and parents can be included in FULL NEWBORN SESSIONS at no additional charge. I do ask that there is a dedicated person there to care for siblings, and in most cases we have them come at the end of the session instead of staying the entire time.
My goal is to give you a gallery of 25 images to select from with a full newborn session, however it is totally dependent on the baby’s cooperation.
The other options are petite sessions- they include the Newborn Simply Baby Session or Parent and Baby Session. These sessions include only images on a neutral blanket back drop, no props or styling, family, or sibling shots. The package includes a one-hour session, one 11x14 print, three digital image files with reprint release for up to 8x10 of those images.
TO BOOK A FULL SESSION A NON REFUNDABLE RETAINER OF $279 IS DUE WITHIN 48 HOURS OF SUBMISSION AND MY AGREEMENT TO ADD YOU TO MY CALENDAR. IF PRE PAYING FOR A PACKAGE, THE REMAINDER IS DUE BY 39 WEEKS OR FIVE DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION WHICHEVER IS FIRST, HOWEVER YOU MAY ALSO ELECT PAY IN FULL AT BOOKING. PETITE SESSIONS ARE DUE PAID IN FULL AT THE TIME OF BOOKING.
