In-Home Newborn sessions are a beautiful way to capture those first special memories, emotions and details. These are lifestyle sessions – seeking to capture the beauty and uniqueness of you and your little one. No need for props or posing. Your baby is the star and you get to enjoy them.
Doing them in your home frees you from having to worry about getting out, germs, when the baby has to eat, etc. I give 2-3 hours for a newborn session to allow for everyone to be able to relax and attended to. Baby needs fed? No problem! A poppy diaper? No fear of having forgot to bring along extra diapers.
When should I schedule my session?
With newborn sessions, contact me as soon as you know you want a session. We put a “guess date” in the calendar and then after your newborn is born we’ll discuss from there. Newborn sessions are best within the first 3 weeks but can be done anytime before your baby is 12 weeks old.
For Fresh 48 sessions we will schedule and keep in contact as your due date comes closer. I ask that you let me know when you are in labor and then once the baby is born is born we will schedule it for the next day.
Before your session:
I ask for a phone call so we can chat and make sure I am able to provide the best service for you. I also will provide you with ideas for clothing and making the session go smoothly for everyone. Newborn Sessions can be combined into a Motherhood Package where you can choose 3 different types of sessions for your beginning parenthood days.
A $175 non-refundable retainer is required to secure your session and the rest of payment is required before or at the session.
During Your Session:
You will receive a digital PDF giving clothing tips, prepping tips and more information about what to expect during your session.
After your session:
You will receive a sneak peek of 4-8 pictures withing 48 hours. The rest of your online gallery will be sent your way within 3-4 weeks. You receive high resolution files to print or share. I do provide printing and album services if you desire.
