Houston Newborn Baby Portrait Photography
Preserving the beauty of new babies through the unique use of stunning colors, texture,cozy wrapping, natural posing and vintage styling.
Newborn sessions currently take place when baby is preferably 5-9 days new, though appointments are available up to 40 days old for full term babies and 12 weeks old for premature babies who have spent time in the NICU. Even if your baby is already born, I still encourage you to inquire as I take newborn appointments 7 days/week between the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM. There are session options for older newborns or babies.
Four Session Options catering to different budgets:
A fully transparent pricing guide is available under the ‘pricing’ tab above.
Wrapped Newborn Mini Session in which baby is wrapped for the entire session. Three styles of wrapping along with rustic, vintage floor props make for a 60 minute session. The wrapped mini is perfect for parents who want a very short, small session with a handful of precious baby images. This session is $475 + tax. See a sample gallery & specifically what is included in this package type.
Bean Bag Newborn Mini Session in which baby is naked for the entire session. The bean bag mini is a second option for a shorter, affordable session for new parents. If you love those naked, squishy poses, this is the session for you! This session is $475 + tax. See more details about the bean bag mini session, such as a sample gallery of the included posing you may expect.
Petite Newborn Session - Includes parent, family, and sibling images, naked posing, wrapping, floor props, and macro images. If you’re looking for a gallery with 30 unique images featuring a variety of setups, you will love this package! This session is $770 + tax.
Full Newborn Session - Includes parent images, family, and sibling photos, naked posing, wrapping, floor props, and macro images. The full newborn package includes anything and everything you could possibly want in a posed newborn session. This is designed for parents seeking family images, sibling set ups, parent photos, as well as many images of their newly earth-side cherub. The full gallery of 50+ full resolution digital files is included so you do not leave any images behind. These are my favorite to photograph because I am able to be creative and not feel limited. This session is $999 + tax.
Dreamy, timeless and rUSTIC in studio collections
Below you’ll find two galleries: one features a baby boy session and the other a sweet newborn girl. When booking a professional portrait session, it’s important you commission a photographer whose work creates a feeling of happiness for you. I encourage you to peruse the galleries to see if we’re a good fit for one another.
Your new baby is the embodiment of everything good and beautiful! I joyfully present you with a stunning digital gallery of perfected fine art images of your cherub love. Their eyelashes, tiny toes, tufts of hair, chubby cheeks, and puckered lips are truly special. I’m honored to provide you wish cherished heirlooms!
DARLING BABY BOY SAMPLE GALLERY AT 5 DAYS NEW
This sample gallery features darling naked bean bag posing, floor props, macro images, which are the up close details of baby's features, as well as sweet and cozy wrapping. This session reflects either the 'full' or 'petite' option on the pricing guide. This little one is my son, Jack, which was such a treat to document! 5 day old newborn boy newborn portraits featuring colors such as hunter green, burgundy, taupe, tan, grey, brown, mint and sage. Rustic floor props such as a galvanized bucket, wooden trench, antique crate and adorable custom made bed are also shown.
Precious baby girl at 6 days new
6 day old newborn girl featuring mauve, lavender, plum, cream, ivory, white, peach, pink and gold. You'll also find a white distressed farmhouse bowl, vintage egg basket, precious hand crafted teddy bear and a plethora of gorgeous organic textiles. This session would be the 'petite' or 'full' option on the pricing guide.
Two styles of backgrounds for your images | All White Classic or Rustic Wooden
There are two distinct looks parents may utilize during their family, parent, or sibling images in studio. The all white ethereal light is perfect if you're seeking classic, timeless, and fresh images encompassing all things new about a recently arrived cherub. However, if you're interested in the farmhouse, reclaimed style of wood there is a rustic, custom built wood wall that makes for stunning family posing. Both are fantastic options to consider.
SCHEDULING your newborn session | what to expect
To get the booking process started, visit the contact and inquiry page. Feel free to let me know your estimated due date or if baby is already earth side. To secure your newborn appointment, there is a $100 non-refundable retainer and portraiture contract required. Since babies arrive on their own schedule, you'll notify me once baby has made their grand entrance. You're given 3-4 dates to select from that take place in the first few weeks of life. My preference, however, is 6-9 days new for the absolute best sessions, but there are still many options and set ups available to babies up to 40 days new.
Your session will last around anywhere from 60 minutes to 2 hours of coverage time, depending on session type, with all props and styling provided. Your color preferences are kept in mind so you're sure to swoon over your final gallery of perfected images! Simply bring baby and their diaper bag essentials to my studio. I am fully vaccinated and insured; I am also formally trained in the custom art of newborn posing, safety and handling, lighting and post processing of your images. Safety is always of the utmost importance. Your baby is treated with care and respect at all times.
Two weeks after your appointment, you receive a private proofing gallery of retouched images you may view from the comfort of your own home. The number of images you see is listed in the package type you select. Your session type comes with the number of digital files in your package. After you select your favorite images, a new gallery is prepared so you may immediately download, share, and enjoy your images for years to come. They may be printed as large, or small, as you would like infinitely. A great list of 4 consumer labs is also made available to you along with unique yet classic wall art groupings to get you started for inspiration. .
