Newborn session pricing and details


Some people dream of angels, but I get to hold them in my arms...
Newborns are my favorite subject to photograph! Newborn photography is by far the hardest type of portrait photography,  but I absolutely love it and love the challenges it brings. In order to get the very best out of your newborn session, and to achieve the image results you see in my portfolio, it is essential to capture newborns as early as possible. I like to photograph them at around one week of age (between 5-10 days).


Why book a newborn session:

When you have a new baby of your own, your whole world changes. The phrase “moments are fleeting” takes on a new meaning, as you begin to understand just how quickly time passes with your precious little one. Babies change and grow so quickly - especially in those early days of their life. Booking a newborn session will help you capture these moments in time - moments that you will never get back. These are more than just photographs; these are pieces of artwork for your family that will only grow in value. It brings me so much joy to know that you and your children will be able to look back and treasure these memories in the years to come.

When to book:

Since your baby's birth date is unpredictable, it's never too early to book your session! I will reserve a time frame for you around your due date, and would expect to hear from you as soon as the baby arrives. Booking early will ensure a spot with me as I schedule a limited number of session each month to allow plenty of time and attention for each of my clients.  The actual session date will be finalized once you deliver. If for some reason your baby is unable to be photographed during the 10 day time frame, don’t worry, I will still be able to capture many beautiful and special images of your baby with a small variation to poses. I ask for a $100 deposit to reserve your spot (balance is due at the time of the session).

Session location & duration:

My studio is located in beautiful Carlsbad, CA.  It's filled with props and has natural light and studio gear that is ideal for photographing newborn babies. If you prefer to get pictures at your home for more of a life style session, I will be happy to come to your home (travel fee may apply) and bring some of my props with me. I like to use natural light as much as possible and will try to find a room with a good source of light in your home. A typical newborn session is approximately 3 hours long. I allow plenty of time for baby to feed or rest and whatever it takes to make your baby happy and comfortable for his/her variety of poses.

After the session:

In about two weeks after your session, you will receive the online gallery containing images to view. You will pick your favorite images and/or products to order at that time. If you are in a rush, please let me know ahead of time so I can get your images edited per your time requirements (i.e to get birth announcements out etc...).  I have a variety of different packages for you to choose from. Of course you can always upgrade your package and/or purchase additional digital images once you had the opportunity to view your gallery.  Professional prints and products may be purchased directly through the gallery. 

Booking a newborn session:

I believe that when you hire a photographer, it should be someone who you connect with and feel comfortable with - so that is what I strive for. When you decide to work with me, you will receive the highest level of client care, and I also hope that you will see me as a friend through this experience.  I do whatever I can to fit in last minute requests, but it's best to message me early in your pregnancy to ensure availability. I am a busy mom to two kids within 2 years of age, and I know how hard those first few weeks after baby's birth can be. You will feel sleep-deprived and tired, so I will do my best to make you feel comfortable, beautiful, and guide you through the session with lots of humor and fun.
