Full and petite Newborn session
The petite and full newborn sessions are larger packages including naked bean bag posing, cozy wrapping, floor props, macro images, and parent, sibling, and family photos should you feel inclined to participate. The ‘petite’ is an all-inclusive rate of $800 and the ‘full’ is $950.
Below are sample galleries from the ‘full’ or ‘petite’ session options. Family and sibling images are included if you would like to participate though it is also common for some parents to leave Baby as the star. ‘Full’ newborn sessions include your favorite 40 images whereas ‘petite’ include your favorite 25. The only difference between these packages is some parents like more images, such as the full, and some prefer a smaller set, such as the petite.
Wrapped Newborn Session Sample Gallery
Available up to 60 days old for full term births and 13 weeks for babies who spent time in the NICU, this is the most flexible package for new parents to consider. The ‘wrapped newborn’ highlights all things sweet and cozy about your bundle of joy. Pricing is an all-inclusive rate of $550 + tax.
If you are interested in naked or unwrapped setups, consider a petite, full, or bean bag newborn session. Baby is wrapped the entire session.
The ‘wrapped newborn session’ features three styles of newborn wrapping macro photography, which are the up close details of Baby’s beautiful features. Baby is wrapped the entire session. This package is designed for older newborns or perhaps parents who prefer Baby to not be naked in the images.
Bean Bag Newborn Session Sample Gallery
The ‘bean bag newborn’ is the perfect package for parents seeking a smaller set of images. Baby is naked the entire session so if the wrapped images are not your favorite style of setups, consider this option. Pricing is an all-inclusive rate of $450 + tax.
If you are interested in floor props, wrapping, or more setups, consider a petite, full, or wrapped newborn session. This is a small session designed for parents who would like a handful of images.
The ‘bean bag newborn package’ includes one backdrop color of your choice along with accessories such as bonnets, hats, headbands, and accent pieces such as organic textiles. Baby is posed in a variety of squishy, naked poses. Macro images are also photographed, which are the up close portraits of their unique characteristics, such as lips, nose, hand, profile, toes, and more. This particular package is best for younger newborns, such as 5 to 9 days fresh.

HOW TO RESERVE YOUR DUE DATE IN ADVANCE:
To provide a streamlined experience, all appointments are scheduled via the online booking page.
Adding your due date to the calendar in advance is helpful as it let’s me know how many babies to expect. Your due date acts as a placeholder. Once Baby is born, you select a date and time to visit for your session. You’ll have many options as sessions take place 7 days per week between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., M-F, and 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sundays.
Click to add your due date to the calendar. A $100 deposit and portraiture agreement secure the placeholder. Your deposit is applied to the overall balance of whichever package you choose.
IF YOUR BABY IS ALREADY BORN:
If Baby is already born, go ahead and schedule your newborn session now from the available options. You are less likely to have your preferred day and time, though sessions take place 7 days per week.
The scheduling page will share how you sign your portraiture contract & pay your $100 deposit, which is applied to the overall balance of the package type you select. Your final balance is due the day of your newborn session.
Scheduling is flexible for NICU babies and there are session options for older newborns. Always know you may contact me and I will do my absolute best to accommodate you. Parents sometimes have unique circumstances and I welcome all questions.
