NEWBORN SESSIONS

Pricing & Info

Time Goes By… Fast

Newborns only remain ‘new’ for a few short weeks and they’ll grow and change every day. You won’t be able to go back and recreate these memories, so my sessions are long and relaxed to ensure lots of time for feeding, changing, soothing and posing baby. My loving studio assistant will help me keep your baby comfortable and safe through the entire session. She’s a nurse so baby is in great hands. I’m a mom myself with many years of experience posing and photographing newborns. Don’t sacrifice these important memories by trusting an inexperienced photographer with your baby. Be sure to hire a professional.

I’ll go through a variety of poses and different looks so each image is a unique piece of art. Baby will be posed to look peaceful, dreamy and perfect. I won’t clutter your photos with unnecessary props. The styling will be clean and classic because I believe your baby should always be the main focus.

The Studio

Located in SE Calgary (map below), my commercial studio was designed to be comfortable and accommodating for new parents. I’m fully stocked with all the things baby could possibly need (diapers, wipes, formula, etc). There’s also a private room for nursing moms who prefer discreet feedings. You’re welcome to watch me work or you can relax in the lounge and help yourself to drinks and snacks.

My studio is stocked with everything we will need to style your session such as custom knits, wraps, bonnets, headbands, backdrops and more. All my items are made especially for newborn photography for a perfect fit and delicate look.

Newborns should be photographed between 4-14 days of birth to ensure the very best results with lots of sleepy, curly poses. This age suggestion is just a guideline for the best chance of a successful session. After the first few weeks, newborns become more alert and more difficult to pose but it can still be possible to achieve beautiful results with an older newborn. If your baby is 6 weeks or older, please contact me prior to booking your session. Want your pet photographed with baby? Just ask!

On the booking calendar, choose a date that is about a week following your due date. This will be tentative only. After baby is born, we can reschedule as needed to ensure we get baby in within those first few weeks. I only take a limited number of sessions per month to ensure my availability to every client. A $250 retainer is taken at the time of booking to secure your newborn session on my calendar. The balance is due one week prior to your session. I’ll shoot to deliver the number of images included in your collection. Your digital image download link will be emailed in approximately 2 weeks. My posing and editing style will be consistent with the images displayed in this guide and in my newborn gallery.

Depending on your chosen collection, my assistant and I will pose the babies together, individually, with parents and siblings to ensure you have a variety of memories of your tiny little miracles. I’ll include an additional hour with Classic and Deluxe collections if it’s needed in the event that the babies are extra hungry, fussy or alert. It’s certainly not uncommon to have at least one fussy baby! If both babies are sleepy and cooperative we may be finished earlier than the scheduled time. The booking calendar will include the extra hour automatically so it’s there just in case.

For Classic or Deluxe twin sessions you can expect to receive approximately 3-4 poses of babies together, 2-4 individual poses of each baby, and 4-10 images of the babies posed with family.


BOOKING YOUR SESSION

Ready to book your newborn session? Choose the collection that fits with your needs and budget. Visit my Online Booking Calendar through the BOOK NOW button to reserve your tentative session date, pay your $250 retainer and sign your session agreement. You may also pay in full if you choose.

All newborn sessions start at 10:00am. The calendar will allow weekday bookings only. Weekend sessions are available for an additional $75. You can request and pay for a weekend session at booking and we can schedule a specific date after baby is born. Don’t worry, your session is only tentative for now. Once baby arrives we can reschedule if necessary to get baby photographed in those first few weeks.

Thanks so much for your interest in a newborn session with Hailey Hamilton Photography. I can’t wait to meet your family! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email me.
