Newborn & Maternity Portrait Sessions
A retainer of $200 is taken at the time of booking to secure all sessions. You may choose to prepay for a digital package or professionally printed product package in order to receive a complimentary metal print, or you can just pay the retainer and choose your package at your portrait ordering appointment. With each package you can choose to order just your favorite images, or all of them! Contact me to chat about package options, pricing, or to schedule a no-obligation studio tour to see my studio and products for yourself! View products here.
Sessions are initially scheduled on a tentative date that is about one week after baby's due date or c-section date. The session can be rescheduled if baby arrives early or late. This date is just a placeholder for now. Newborns should be photographed within the first 2 weeks of birth for best results. Parent and sibling posing with baby is included with all sessions. We will do beanbag and prop posing for variety. There will be lots of time for feeding and soothing if needed. You will view approximately 25-30 images to order from.
I also give the option to add a mini maternity session to your newborn package, without committing to a full maternity package. Please inquire.
As a TTMAC member, you'll receive an exclusive discount of 15% off your chosen package. You will also receive an extended session for your twins or triplets, as multiples sometimes take longer to photograph. Parent and sibling posing is also included.
Belly & Baby
Maternity sessions will be scheduled for around week 32-36 of your pregnancy depending on your belly size and comfort level. Sessions will take place outdoors, in the evening, a few hours before sunset. This time of day typically yields the best natural and beautiful light. There is a certain location I like to use in the south but other locations may be possible for a small travel fee. I recommend bringing a few outfits for variety.
One ordering appointment for both sessions will be provided after the newborn session is completed. You will view 45-50 images to choose from (both sessions combined).
Booking Your Session
The process is simple. Just send me an email through the contact tab or call me, tell me your due date and the type of session you're looking for. I'll give you a quick call and invite you to the studio for a tour (you don't have to but you'll be glad you did!). When you're ready to book, we will select a date and I'll email the paperwork for an e-signature or we can do it at the studio after your tour. You will then pay your retainer (it will be applied to your chosen package).
