Newborn & Maternity Portrait Sessions
My creative fee is taken at the time of booking to secure all sessions. The creative fee covers my time and talent, setup and cleanup, use of studio props and accessories, travel (for maternity), and your in-person portrait ordering appointment. All images are ordered separately. Digital Packages start at $500 and product packages start at $1000. You may choose to prepay for a portrait package at the time of booking to receive a complimentary set of birth announcements, or you can choose your package after you see your images. Contact me to discuss package and pricing options, or to schedule a no-obligation studio tour to see my studio and products for yourself! Contact me here.
The creative fee for full sessions is $200. The session will take approximately 3-4 hours and we will do beanbag, prop posing and wrapping for variety. Parent and sibling posing with baby is included with all full sessions. You'll view approximately 30 images to order from. The mini session creative fee is $150 and is for photographing baby only. The session will take approximately 2 hours and will yield 15 images to order from.
Sessions are initially scheduled on a tentative date that is about one week after baby's due date or c-section date. Newborns should be photographed within the first 2 weeks of birth for best results but older newborns are also welcome.

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.
Full maternity sessions are $150 and include 1 hour of shooting time. You will view approximately 30 images to order from. Mini maternity sessions are $100 for 30 mins of shooting time. 15 images will be available to order from.
Maternity sessions are available only to newborn clients. One ordering appointment will be scheduled after the newborn session is completed. All maternity sessions will be scheduled for around week 32-36 of your pregnancy and will take place outdoors, a few hours before sunset. This time of day typically yields the best natural and beautiful light. I have a regular location I like to use but we can also use a location of your choice. There may be an additional charge depending on travel distance. Your spouse and children are welcome to attend your maternity session. This session is not intended for photographing your children alone. I recommend bringing a few maternity outfits for variety.
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. You'll be invited 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'll schedule a date, you'll sign the contract and pay the creative fee. That's it! Then we wait for baby to arrive.
*5% GST is charged on all products and services. Hailey Hamilton Photography reserves the right to change pricing and product offerings at any time without notice. In the event of a price increase after booking your session, all pricing will be honored until your ordering appointment.
