Newborn Session

$400 - 2+ hour session

Your house is the usually the preferred location for these sessions, so that mom and baby can take comfortable feeding and changing breaks without the hassle of packing a bunch of bags for the road. I set up my portable studio in an area of your home, with a small arsenal of props, outfits and accessories to choose from. With proper planning and daring, however, we can make it work outdoors if that's the look you desire! Newborn sessions are typically done before the baby is 2 weeks old.

Beautiful prints, canvases and metals are available directly from the viewing gallery, which get shipped directly to you from my professional lab.

{The Full Set of high-resolution digital images can be purchased for an additional $150.}
