Newborns and Baby's First Year
Newborn Session: $150
Full payment is due at the time of the session.
Ideally scheduled within the first 6-10 days after birth.
Capturing teeny-tiny babies right after they are born is one of my favorite photography experiences to be a part of! There's something so special about working with such a brand new little gift. My deluxe newborn session is designed to be as stress-free and positive as possible for the new mom and dad. The session is very relaxed, often lasting 1 1/2-2 hours to allow plenty of time for eating, changing, and cuddling between photographs.
The best time to schedule this session is within the first 6-10 days after your baby's birth. During this time, babies usually retain some of the natural curl from before they were born. Newly born babies are also more sleepy and pliable for the most desired poses. For these reasons, please call to book your newborn session as early as possible. It is best to secure your session prior to your baby's birth. This ensures that I can fit your baby into my schedule as soon after the birth as possible.
This package includes:
- Custom photography session with use of my many newborn props and accessories.
- Cd with full resolution images and print permissions
- 1-11x14 or 12x12 print of your choice
- Private online ordering gallery where you and your family will be able to view and order additional prints at your convenience.
Maternity Add-On: $50
Add a maternity session to a scheduled newborn session at a great price. This is a time to capture beautiful images with yourself, your spouse or significant other, and any other siblings that might want to be in the picture as you celebrate your baby's upcoming birth. These are normally done during the 8th month of your pregnancy. Includes 30-40 images on disk.
Want to Keep the fun going for a whole year? Add on a first year package. If booked at the time of the newborn session you can enjoy additional savings!

1st Birthday cake smash
I love 1st birthday sessions and smashing cake. Here are a couple of guidelines, info and pricing:
- You are in charge of bringing your own cake (and balloons if you want them).
- You can let me know ahead of time if you are going to do a specific color scheme and I will try to have a few simple decorations to match. Your child can wear any outfit or nothing but a diaper, its up to you. Frosting can stain depending on color so I don't allow use of any of my clothes/tutus for a cake smash.
