Completely stylized sessions are available in studio (and in limited circumstances also at your home).
If a more casual approach to your newborn’s first photo shoot appeals to you I offer a journalistic lifestyle session, which takes place in your home.
Please keep scrolling for more details.
This selection includes:
• A design consultation with you – we can chat about your favorite colors and poses and how I can make your session amazing.
• Various props – hats, tie backs, and swaddles anyone? And don’t forget the backdrops, delightful textures, soft fabrics and many popular colors fill my inventory. Or perhaps a cozy layered basket or bucket draws you. Either way I bet I have something that you will love.
• I prefer my studio for newborn sessions where I have all my props and I can completely control the environment. In-home sessions are available as well with some restrictions (see below) and an additional fee of $75 for travel and time.
• As it is a baby led session, it can last 2-3 hours.
• After your session I will spend time with your images and in 10 days I will provide you a gallery of proofs. Your package includes 18 high resolution digital images of your choosing, beautifully edited and available for download from your gallery. My turn-around time is approximately 2.5 weeks after you have selected your images
I offer in-home newborn sessions for an additional $75 fee to cover travel and time.
Notes about in-home stylized sessions (these are not applicable to In-home Lifestyle Sessions):
- Unfortunately I cannot accommodate locations on other than the ground floor unless there is an elevator. I come with a lot of equipment, some of it is very delicate and all of it is heavy – I have learned the hard way that stairs are not equipment friendly.
- For the set I will need a large corner with plenty of light that is close to electrical outlets.
• With your purchase of a “Brand New” Stylized Session, include shots of mom & dad, siblings, and/or grandparents. This option provides you with an additional 5 images from the family set.
- Have you ever seen a baby on an elephant? What about a giraffe or miniature pony?
- In consultation with you, a composite of your baby will be designed for you and delivered as an 11×14 gallery wrapped canvas print. You will also receive a web version digital file.
• My in-home lifestyle sessions allow us to photograph your newborn in the most organic of environments – your home. In the 2 – 2.5 hours I will be in your home, your baby will be swaddled or undressed and posed in a way you’d find them naturally as I capture their tiny delicate features ~ eyelashes, pouty lips, wisps of hair, and those precious fingers and toes.
• Beyond a swaddle no other photography props will be used; parents are very welcome to introduce their own loved items with their baby.
• All family members (furry or otherwise) are included, posing is done in a nonstructured way – I photograph you and your family doing what you normally do and provide minimal direction.
• Within approximately 2.5 weeks of our session you will be provided an online gallery of all the digital images that meet my standards, in high resolution and beautifully edited.
• Please note, travel up to 20 miles from 93003 is included in this price; I ask for a small travel fee of $25 for ranges up to 20 – 45 miles. Ask me about distances over this amount.
