Classic newborn sessions are shot in my studio, and I provide all the wraps and fabrics. The shoot will generally last about two hours, but we are not constrained by time. The baby leads the pace of the session and if we need to stop to nurse, change diapers, or soothe - we'll take our time and do so. My newborn studio is a fully equipped nursery. I created a relaxing space with soothing music, a comfortable rocker, and a space heater to keep us (and especially the baby) warm.
While I'm capturing the baby, mom and dad can relax in the nursery. I'll provide snacks and beverages because I know when I've recently given birth I cannot go long without something to eat. I usually shoot within the first three weeks from birth, and have a very classic style. I shoot with white and cream, relying on texture and depth to compel and capture visual interest.
After the shoot, I will review the photography and contact you to schedule your first view of your custom artwork. We'll meet at the studio and I'll reveal the artwork. We'll look through the photography together, choose your prints, and any additional products you'd like to display in your home. The ordering session is usually within a week of the shoot, and takes about an hour. I know you're excited to get the art in your home so I work quickly. We'll place the order for the products during this meeting.
Once the ordering session is complete, I will retouch the photography you've chosen to have created. I'll send the order, and generally the prints and products are delivered to me within 10 business days. I'll check them for quality and ensure they meet my standards, and deliver them to your home.
What's Included with Your Investment
The creative fee investment of 500 includes the Photography Session and covers the time and talent of the photographer, the initial consultation and ordering session. I am a full-service photographer, so when we're finished you'll have artwork for your walls (not a disc to lose in the bottom of a drawer). Wall art begins at 250. If you are interested in images to share on social media, I can also provide low-resolution watermarked files for sharing with family and friends and/or a customized app for you to keep the artwork at your fingertips.
For clients who would prefer to create their own collection (instead of set packages I create, you choose which size artwork you want to display in your home), I offer a 20% savings. There are four categories of artwork to choose from: Wall Art, Albums, Gift Prints, Signature Albums. Choose from each category to receive the savings.
I offer a range of products including albums, canvas, acrylic, fine art, and metallic prints.
If you're reading this while you're expecting, please keep in mind if you bookyour maternity and Classic Newborn session during your initial consultation you'll receive a 10% savings.
What is Full-Service Photography?
As a full-service photographer, you and I will work together from the beginning planning stages of the shoot right through to the end when you will have custom artwork to display in your home. Photography is created to be shared - imagine passing down a custom album or framed piece to your grandchildren. The archival quality of the wall art I provide is intended to last 100 years with proper care.
I approach each session as a personalized experience created for each client and their family. As a full-service photographer (this means I'm not going to hand you a disc and send you on your way to figure out printing and framing all by yourself, at the end of the experience you'll have completed art for your home), I will guide you through the entire process.
My goal is to have fine art displayed in your home. If you're looking for inspiration before our consult, click here to visualize how products I offer can be arranged and beautifully displayed. After the initial consult, we can also schedule for me to visit your home and advise on the best wall spaces to use, and what sizes you'll need to achieve a stunning home gallery.
