Newborn Photo Session FAQs
What does the cost of a newborn session include?
–The $695 will include a 1-2 hour relaxed but “guided” session with me—this can be indoors, outdoors or both.
–2-3 outfit changes (optional)
–An online gallery of 80-100 edited images with unlimited access and ability to share and download
–4 prints—your choice of 4×6, 5×7, 8×10 or 11×14.
When should I have my newborn photographed? The earlier the better and within the first 2 weeks of life, if possible. I can come to the hospital for a “fresh 48” session or come to your home when you are settled in and feel ready. If it’s not possible to schedule the session within the first two weeks, anytime within the first 3 months will make for a wonderful newborn session.
What can I expect with a newborn session?
A typical newborn session is generally about 2 hours. I will come to your home and photograph your baby there in a natural, “day in the life of” style. There is no formula to a newborn session as your baby is the boss and will dictate how the session goes. Feel free to let it all unfold organically as you feed, change and rock your baby. She will probably sleep, cry and snuggle and it is all perfect and good.
May I include family portraits in the session?
One of my favorite things about a newborn session is making images of a father and a mother, a sibling or pet with the new baby. These shots are all included in the newborn session.
Do you provide props for the session?
I do not bring props to the session and don’t feel that we need them. If however, you would like to include a blanket or stuffed animal with sentimental value, that’s wonderful! Otherwise, the more natural the better. It might be fun to pick out a favorite swaddler, onesie, or a change of clothes to have ready for the session.
Do you have a studio?
I do not work in a studio and will either do the session in the hospital (within the first 48 hours) or at your home.
What should we wear? How should I dress my baby?
I want to photograph you and your baby as you are. There is no need to dress up. If you would like to shower or freshen up, that’s wonderful too—but certainly not expected. Stay away from matching colors and dress in clothes that you feel best in. As for your baby–she is perfect nude or in a diaper or onesie. Keep her outfits simple.
