Session Fees

2017 Session Pricing

Fees include the photographers time and talent planning, setting up, shooting, editing, posting a gallery, and ordering your custom art images.  For newborns and milestone sessions, this also includes the use of an extensive amount of studio props and outfits for your little ones!

Galleries are provided approximately 1-2 weeks following your session.

Newborn Full Session – $150 session fee plus any products/packages purchased.

  • A $400 minimum ordering investment is required with newborn sessions.

  • Newborn sessions are 2-3 hour sessions customized with multiple set and pose options to capture this precious time with your fresh, sleepy, new baby!
  • Family and/or sibling pictures are included in this session when requested.
  • A gallery of 20-30 images will be provided following your session.
  • There is a family sitting area for you to relax in while the session is taking place.
  • Newborn sessions are held prior to baby being 14 days old (7-10 days when possible).
    • Babies are sleeping more deeply during this time frame, making posing and set-ups safer.
    • Babies are also more easily posed into those sweet, curled up newborn poses during this time.  
    • Waiting a few days to give time for nursing Mom’s milk to come in is also important so that baby is full and comfortable during our session.

I have extensive training in newborn posing and handling, so I will always put baby’s safety as the #1 priority with posing and set-ups.  We consult prior to the session to give you time to tell me your requests and style preference!
