Newborn Photography Pricing & Information

Newborn Sessions

A session fee is taken at the time of booking to secure your portrait session on my calendar. It includes my time and talent, use of all my beautiful custom photography props and accessories, and access to your online ordering gallery. Digital image packages are ordered separately after viewing and selecting your favorite images, and professionally printed artwork is also available.

A Full newborn photography session may last from 2-4 hours and can be scheduled for baby alone, or include family posing with baby. I can normally achieve at least 12-14 unique poses with a cooperative baby, and additional poses are provided for family sessions. Accessories, wraps and props are included for variety.

A Simple Newborn photography session is 1 hour and includes simple poses for baby only. We can usually achieve between 4-6 poses but keep in mind that we may need to wrap baby if uncooperative. The time will go by very quickly!

Session fees start at $100+gst. Digital packages start at $300+gst. Please contact me for detailed pricing and options.

Newborn Sessions are initially scheduled on a tentative date about one week after baby's due date or scheduled c-section. Newborns should be photographed within the first 2-3 weeks of birth for best results and ease of posing but older newborns are also welcome. I encourage all clients to be photographed with their new baby. These portraits are memories your grown baby will truly appreciate one day. Newborns grow and change quickly, so be sure to photograph your family holding your tiny baby before she's not tiny anymore! 

TTMAC members receive an exclusive discount of 20% off session fees and digital packages for newborn multiples. Any newborn session can be scheduled for multiples, however I don't recommend the simple session because of the limited time.

Booking Your Session

Send me an email through the contact tab, tell me which type of session interests you and request my client guide. Don't forget to mention your due date! When you're ready to book we'll schedule a date, I'll email the session agreement for an e-signature, and the session fee invoice will be emailed for electronic payment. Then we wait for baby to arrive! Click here for helpful tips on preparing for your newborn photo session.

Other Session Types

Simple Sessions are available for sitters, cake smash, and maternity, starting at $300+gst. These are shorter sessions (30-45 mins) with digital images in a package. 'Simple' refers to simple posing, styling and props. Past newborn clients receive a loyalty discount of $50 off their sitter session or cake smash session. Want to earn your Simple Sitter or Simple Smash session for free?

Ordering Your Portraits

After your session is complete, we'll schedule a date for your portrait ordering. On ordering day, you'll receive a link to view your watermarked online portrait gallery. Select your favorite newborn photos and the digital package of your choice, choose optional printed artwork, place your order, and conveniently pay online. A link to download your images will be emailed when editing is complete. Turnaround is usually about two weeks. Printed artwork may take longer.

Earn a complimentary set of folded birth announcement cards when you prepay for a digital package at the time of booking ($175 value). Please ask for specific details.

Request my newborn client guide for more information on session types, packages, pricing, and printed portraits. Not sure if I'm the right photographer for you? There is no risk to you in booking a newborn or other session with me. I'm pleased to offer all my clients a satisfaction guarantee so you can have peace of mind knowing you only pay if you love your photos. All my newborn clients to date have been thrilled and I know you will be too!

Printed Artwork

Do you prefer to order digital images but want some beautiful prints? Add a Keepsake Collection to your digital image order and receive a cute little wooden USB, wooden box with image lid, and a set of 4x6 fine art matte prints. Wood Mounted Portraits are my best selling product and have a natural, organic look. Metal Prints are my newest product and perfectly suited for clients with more modern or industrial tastes. Other items are available as well. Product options and descriptions are listed in my client guide.

 

Satisfaction Guarantee

I want all my clients to feel comfortable booking a photography session with me, and to be confident that their newborn's portraits will be exactly what they hoped for. I'm 100% confident you'll be thrilled with the results of your session and be excited to place your order. Upon viewing your online gallery, if you're not completely satisfied with the images you will not be required to place an order. You may choose to receive a reshoot or a complete refund of all monies paid. Isn't it nice knowing your photographer will stand behind her work?
