The Details

With each newborn session you will receive a viewing gallery of 30+ hand edited and ready to print digital images.  Digitals will be ready to download two weeks after your session.  Digital images come with printing rights to print and share however you please.  You can also purchase additional professional prints & products after you see the entire gallery.

Please book your newborn session in advance so I can save a place for you in my schedule once baby has been born.  All sessions take place at my studio in SW Portland or in the comfort of your home.

portrait sessions

studio newborn sessions 

The best time to take your baby’s newborn images is when they are under 2 weeks old.  This is when they are most relaxed and asleep for the majority of the time.  The newborn sessions lasts about 2 hours with lots of time built in for mom and baby to take a break and feed as often as needed.  Parents are able to sit back & relax while I work.  You keep me posted when baby arrives and then we’ll set a session date.  If you have a planned c-section, we can set up a session date + time in advance.  I am happy to include family & sibling images too. 

in-home newborn sessions 

In-home newborn sessions with come a variety of sleepy, awake, and candid shots are for babies under 1 month old.  This newborn session takes place in the comfort of your home.  For the first half of the session, I focus on documenting baby’s first home and your family.  The second half with be a simple and sweet portrait session of just baby, that is not as posed and includes all their brand new little details.  The in-home newborn sessions lasts about 2 hours, and you can have the house as clean or as messy as you like!  I will bring everything needed for the session, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.  All you need to do is have a well fed baby ready to be photographed before I arrive.

mini newborn studio sessions & baby milestone studio sessions

Mini Newborn sessions & baby Milestone sessions are simple and sweet just focusing on your baby, and includes a smaller gallery of images taken at my studio. Mini sessions are more natural and not as posed, due to the shorter session time.  You are welcome to bring any objects that mean something special to you and your baby, along with several outfits.  Mini sessions include 15 digital files that will be available for instant download.  Minis are great for older babies and clients who want a shorter session with not as many poses. 

baby’s first year

One minute you have a tiny little newborn that fits in your arms, then suddenly you’ve got a walking, talking one year old.  Its fun to document all their firsts.  Newborn, 6 months, and first birthday sessions.

reserve the date

Newborn sessions book several weeks out and are typically scheduled during the week. The newborn studio session deposit is $200 (covers my time and materials) and includes a 5×5 soft cover proof book that features all the images, in order, from the session.  In-home sessions require a $250 deposit, and a mini newborn session is $150.  Baby Milestones are paid in full and the hand edited, high resolution digital files will be ready to download within two weeks of your session.  You will also receive all the digitals files archived on a custom flash drive.  There is also an option to purchase professional quality prints and products, but purchase of these additional items is not a requirement.
