INFORMATION

What is included in a full-newborn session?

A full-newborn session is $525 plus tax and includes 2 different colored fabrics on the beanbag with different poses, 2-3 props, and an online gallery to share your images with friends and family. Your gallery will include 30 hand edited high resolution images that you will be able to download directly so that you may print them at a lab of your choice. Of course, all babies are different, some are fantastic sleepers and some are not, so there is no guarantee of number of poses. Some may not like the beanbag, but love to be swaddled and we will do more prop poses. You can add on parent and/or sibling poses for an additional $150. 

 

What is included in a mini newborn session?

A mini-newborn session is $299 plus tax includes 1 color fabric on the beanbag with different poses, and 1 prop. Your gallery will include 10 hand edited high resolution images that you will be able to download directly so that you may print them at a lab of your choice. Of course, all babies are different, some are fantastic sleepers and some are not, so there is no guarantee of number of poses. Some may not like the beanbag, but love to be swaddled and we will do more prop poses. Parent Sibling poses can not be added onto a mini newborn session. 

 

When should I book my newborn session?

Please try to contact me by the third trimester so I can get you on the calendar. I know birth dates are not exact, but it will give me a general idea of when the baby is expected. If I can accommodate a last minute session, I am happy to, but I can't always guarantee I will have availability as I typically book up a month or more in advance.

 

When will the session take place?

Newborn sessions take place when the baby is ideally less than 2 weeks old (5-9 days preferred). Timing is important here because at this age, the babies are much sleepier and flexible, and enjoy being curled up and cozy. This allows me to be able to capture those adorable shots where they are swaddled or tucked in and positioned in baskets and other props. I understand that babies' births are unpredictable, so I ask all my clients to contact me within 48 hours after birth to set a definitive date. All newborn sessions are scheduled on Monday or Friday – starting at 10am.

 

Where will the session take place?

All newborn sessions are done at my in-home studio located in Carrollton, TX where I have a large collection of blankets, props and backdrops to use.

 

How long will the session last?

With newborn sessions, there are two options. A full newborn session is 3-4 hours long and a mini-newborn session is 1.5 hours.

 

Do I need to bring any props or outfits?

Nope! I have a LARGE collection of props, blankets, hats, headbands, and swaddles, so you do not need to bring your own. However, if you have something specific that you would like included (a blanket, a certain stuffed animal, etc), please let me know ahead of time so I can find a way to incorporate it. Many times parents have crochet outfits that they, or a family member, has purchased, but most often the outfits are too big as they aren't from a true newborn photography vendor and getting them on can actually wake a baby, so I try to stay away from outfits.

 

What should I wear?

When you come for your session, dress in layers! It will be HOT (80-85 degrees) to keep baby comfortable. If you have decided to add on parent pictures plain white t-shirts/tank tops are ideal, but black or a very light gray will work too. No logos or patterns. We want to keep the focus on the baby. If dads feel comfortable, they can go shirtless for beautiful skin-to-skin photos. Your pants do not matter as they won't be in the pictures. 

 

What should older siblings wear?

Big sisters should wear a neutral top or a neutral, plain colored dress. Big brothers should wear jeans or khakis and a nice, neutral plain shirt. No logos or patterns. We want to keep the focus on the baby.

 

What if my newborn gets hungry?

I always allow time for feedings. We will just pause the session and let the baby feed so he/she will fall into a nice deep sleep again.

 

What will happen after the session?

After your session, I will start working on your gallery and put up a sneak peek on Facebook within 48 hours. Your final gallery will be finished within 3 weeks of your session date.
