Newborn Session Details
Studio Swaddle Sessions - Starting at $199
Location: All sessions take place in my little home studio in Brookhaven, PA. My home is nothing glamorous. It's a total 1950s fixer upper, still in the works. But I love my simple studio room. With a cute little bed setup, amazing neutral fabrics and a large selection of the cutest baby accessories, I just love to create beautiful portraits in this space.
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. Heck, it's even adorable if they're fussing. Sometimes macro shots of their little lips, fingers, toes if they're asleep. Afterward, I wrap baby into a nice cozy swaddle and right into the arms of his/her family for the remainder of the session where the photos focus on just cuddling and adoring your sweet new addition. I also can't resist a little prop shot once in a while if bonus time allows but it's optional, of course.
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 or pastel or muted. I like to keep focus on baby so wearing clothing that doesn't distract from baby is key. Color is totally fine! Just not vivid color that takes away from baby. If you're more a visual person, like I am, check out this Pinterest board of sample clothing ideas for studio sessions. I like to make sure that this softer style is a great fit for you before booking your session.
Booking: Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a session. We require a 50% session retainer to book, and this simply limits the number of due dates we take at a given time. Once baby is born, we'll offer an an official appointment that falls somewhere between a week to a month old. The studio is open for newborns MWF between 10am and 2pm so your appointment will most likely be in that timeframe. Once in a while we get bumped to a weekend day depending on inclement winter weather or if anyone is sick in my household or my assistant's household.
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. During this session we photograph baby with his/her parents and baby's siblings if applicable.
Just baby pricing: If it's just sweet newborn baby being photographed we offer a half session. The session length is 40 minutes, includes 3 images, and is priced at $199.
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.
