We are so excited to meet your beautiful baby. This is a 50% retainer to tentatively schedule a newborn session. No appointments are an absolute guarantee due to the unpredictability of baby's actual birth events, but rather a means of us limiting the number of due dates we take each month. This retainer is non-refundable unless I am unable to fulfill your newborn session on my end (i.e. illness, scheduling conflicts, inclement weather, family emergency, etc)
Location: All sessions take place in my little home studio in Brookhaven, PA. My home is nothing glamorous, I promise. But I love the photos I can create in my simple space. Creamy walls, a comfy bed, amazing neutral fabrics and a large selection of the cutest baby accessories, and the most simple beautiful backdrops.
Shooting Style: These sessions are very simple. Posing for baby is very minimal. I usually start with baby, awake or asleep, laying on their back for a few minutes of photos alone. Sometimes macro shots of their little lips, fingers, toes if they're asleep. Afterward, I wrap baby into a nice cozy swaddle for a few additional images. If it's a family session, we'll then wrap up with some sweet cuddle time with baby. I also can't resist a little prop shot once in a while if bonus time allows :)
My overall studio style is very neutral but I'm happy to incorporate subtle pops of pastel or muted color. I usually incorporate color through beanies, headbands, swaddles, little quilts and the occasional prop, all of which I have right here in the studio.
Clothing Style: In order to keep a cohesive look to my images I typically style all of my clients wardrobe for their session. All of the clothing we recommend for our clients to bring/wear is simple and either neutral, pastel or muted tones. My studio style is also pretty casual. Lacy jammies, sweaters and leggings, Henleys and tees. Some of the family photos are done cuddling on the studio bed, so collared shirts and structured pieces look out of place.
Booking: Since birth dates can be unpredictable I schedule tentative sessions based on your due date and adjust as necessary to accommodate baby's birth. A $50 placeholder is purchased upon pre-booking to help us limit the number of due dates we take in a given time and credited to your balance once baby is born. .
Family Pricing: A family newborn session is $399 and includes a 90 minute studio session, private online proofs, 5 high-res fully edited images of your choice available through digital download and the rights to print and post your images as you please. When viewing your gallery you are welcome to choose additional images at the rate of $20 each or depending on gallery size we often have a flat price option to download everything you see. Family can include baby's parents, baby's siblings if applicable. Immediate family only.
Just baby pricing: If it's just sweet newborn baby being photographed we offer a half session price. The session length is 45 minutes, includes 3 images, and is priced at $299.
Social media use: A huge part of my marketing is the ability to show off these beautiful sessions on our Facebook, IG, Twitter. Plus it's a fun way for me to post sneak peeks for you while I edit. I don't use full names or tag clients without their permission.
Although Pinterest offers up some fun ideas for newborn sessions I want to emphasize that I am a no frills style so tiny superhero capes and tutus and babies on footballs is not my typical style. If this is more of what you are looking for just let me know. I'd be happy to refer you to some of my super talented friends.
After purchase, please email me at email@example.com and I'll get your contract and questionnaire sent over to complete your booking. Remaining balances will be billed once baby is born but you are welcome to pay early if it's easier to do prior to baby's arrival.
