Newborn Session - $150
Newborn sessions are my absolute favorite type of photography. I love seeing those precious new little ones in their first weeks of life outside the womb. I had a friend who always said that in the first two weeks she felt as though the newborns were still more God's than ours. I know exactly what she means. Newborns seem to have a wisdom about them that we "experienced" adults have lost. The time goes so quickly and I relish the chance to capture those early times for you. There is nothing sweeter than those teeny, tiny baby features - lips, toes, fingers, hairs. If you are a first time parent, you will be amazed at how quickly they change! I did not do newborn photos with my daughters and I still regret it. I would love to go back and try again to capture their newness. Thank you for considering me as the person who has the honor of capturing yours.
The $150 session fee covers the time for the session and my time editing your photos. The session fee only covers sessions in my studio. Due to the volume of equipment used for newborn photos, there is a $100 charge for me to travel within 25 miles of the 49801 zip code. For every additional 25 miles there is an additional $20 mileage charge.
It is recommended that you schedule your newborn session 2-3 months before your due date to hold your spot. Once the baby comes, scheduling newborn photos might be furthest from your mind and you do not want to miss the 10-14 day window.
Please allow 2-4 hours for your newborn session. Contrary to what we might think, the baby is in complete control of the session and he or she may have other ideas about when to sleep and be settled. Even awake baby shots can be gorgeous and adorable, but we must have patience for the sleepy newborn shots. Some babies are asleep from start to finish and some are awake and trying to take it all in. Every newborn is different and we need to listen to yours and let them guide us. Sometimes that means waiting a while for the baby to settle in. I will do my best to get you through in a timely manner but I will not sacrifice quality. It is more important to me to get the right photos than to finish in a certain time frame.
