With each newborn session you will receive a viewing gallery of 30+ images. Your gallery will be a mix of both posed baby images and candid images. Sessions are all-inclusive, which means it includes all of the hand picked & edited digital files about three weeks after the session. You can share the digital files and print as 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. Most sessions take place in the comfort of your home, or at my sweet little studio located in SW Portland.
studio newborn sessions
The best time to take your baby’s newborn images is when they are under 2 weeks old, this is important for the sleepy posed images. This is when they are most relaxed and asleep for the majority of the time. The studio newborn sessions lasts about 2 – 2 1/2 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 & 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. I am happy to set up a session date + time in advance, so everyone can be home for the session.
Mini sessions are simple and sweet just focusing on your baby and includes a smaller gallery of images. The mini sessions are more natural and not as posed, due to the shorter session time and are great for a 6 month old or a one year old milestone session. Pictures are taken at my studio or outside, and will include a smaller gallery of digital images. Please let me know you would like studio or an outside location in Portland’s Forest Park. Email me for pricing and availability.
