The Details

With each session you will receive a viewing gallery of 30+ images about two weeks after your session. Digital packages come with printing rights to print and share however you please. Please book your newborn session several months in advance so I can save a place for you in my schedule once baby has been born.  Sessions take place during week day mornings when the light is just right and baby is happiest.

Studio sessions take place at my studio in the West End of Downtown Portland (W Burnside & SW 9th) or in the comfort of your home.  In-home sessions are always fun because I can include baby’s first home as a backdrop to your newborn photos. I will provide everything we will need for the session.  I look forward to meeting each and every new family!

portrait sessions

newborn studio session

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 session

In-home newborn sessions with come a variety of sleepy, awake, and candid shots.  This newborn session takes place in the comfort of your home. I will use your house as a backdrop for al the images and you can have the house as clean or as messy as you like!  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 in just a simple white onesie and a favorite outfit.  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 session

Mini sessions are simple and sweet just focusing on your baby, and includes a smaller gallery of images taken at my studio. The baby images are more natural and not as posed, due to the shorter session time.  These sessions last about an hour and all mini sessions take place at my studio in SW Portland.  Digital files and prints are purchased separately.  See pricing here: Mini Session Packages

baby sessions

This session is for babies up to a year old and takes place at my studio.  Great ages to photograph are the milestone ages of:  3 months (pushing up and smiling), 6-8 months (sitting up) and 1 year old (they start looking like the little person they are to become).  This session lasts about an hour and I have several hats & blankets we can use for the session.  You are welcome to bring any objects that mean something special to you and your baby, along with several outfits.  I am happy to include family & sibling images too! 

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 month, and first birthday sessions. For repeat customers the session fee is waved for the one year session.

reserve the date

Sessions book several weeks out and are scheduled during the week day mornings.  The session fee for portrait sessions is $200 (this covers my time & materials) and includes a gallery of 30+ hand edited images about two weeks later.  Session fees also include a set of (25) birth announcements on thick linen paper or a 5×5 soft cover album ($75 value) of all the images from the session, in order.  Packages start at $550 and you will have access to my favorite pro print labs so the color of prints comes out just right.

The mini session fee is $150 and comes with a gallery of 15-20 images.  The session fee includes a matted 4×6 print (it perfectly fits in an 5×7 frame).  Once you have viewed your images you can then decide which photographs you would like to purchase.

After the session I’ll create an online gallery showcasing your baby’s first portraits.  Whether you’re looking for albums to flip through again and again, art to hang up on your walls, digital files to hold onto forever, or all of the above, you’ll find the perfect way to display your images for years, and generations to come
