Newborn Session Info


WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION?

Newborn sessions are recommended within the first 5 to 10 days of birth. This typically allows us to capture all those adorable poses while the baby is the sleepiest and most flexible. If you’re pregnant now, we can pencil you in for an appt.


WHAT WILL THE NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION COST?

The fee for a newborn session is $125 for the first 2 hours and $25 per hour after that (multiples + $25/additional baby). This covers my time and talent as well as that of my newborn assistant. More information regarding the pricing may be found here.


WHERE WILL THE NEWBORN PHOTO SESSION TAKE PLACE?

The session takes place in my Montoursville, PA studio where I have professional lighting, equipment and all the props and blankets needed to capture amazing photos of your new little miracle. If you are not local to the Montoursville area, please check the distance from your location so that you allow plenty of time to arrive for your session.


WHAT ITEMS SHOULD I BRING TO THE NEWBORN SESSION?{Baby Items}:

You will want to bring bottles, baby wipes, binky, diapers, formula/breast milk, swaddling blanket, sleeper that is easily removed, loose diaper, etc. We have a nice selection of custom hats, wraps, and blankets all ready for your session. On the day of your session, it is helpful to us if you loosen the baby’s diaper in an effort to eliminate the diaper marks on the skin.


AM I ALLOWED TO TAKE MY OWN PHOTOS DURING THE NEWBORN SESSION?

We love the element of surprise and would greatly appreciate that no other photos be taken during the session. {Thank you!}


WHAT TO WEAR {For the parents}:

If you’re planning to do family photos, you may want to think about coordinating your attire. (Ex: a long sleeve black shirt, white shirt, tank top/camisole (mom), works really well and will have timeless appeal hanging on your walls for years to come.)


HOW LONG WILL THE NEWBORN SESSION LAST?

A typical session lasts anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, depending on the baby...the one who really runs the show! We never stress about how long it takes for your baby to settle into the new surroundings, we’re extremely patient and want you to be as well. We have a comfy living room area perfect for nursing moms and sleepy dads!


WHAT IF MY BABY HAS JAUNDICE OR BABY ACNE?

All newborn photos are carefully and professionally edited to achieve ideal skin tones.


WHEN WILL MY PREVIEW GALLERY BE READY? 

Typically, your gallery preview will be available within 3 to 5 days after your session, depending upon my schedule. Newborn sessions scheduled at Holiday time may see a delay in the turnaround time based on my schedule.


HOW MANY IMAGES WILL BE INCLUDED IN MY PREVIEW GALLERY FROM MY NEWBORN SESSION? 

It’s very important to remember that your little one runs the show and while we make every attempt possible to fill your gallery with a variety of poses, there are no guarantees on the number of poses or final images. Typically, you should see anywhere from 20 to 30 images from your session, including black and white conversions.


WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION? 

We completely understand and will make every attempt possible for you to reschedule your session.


HOW MANY FAMILY MEMBERS MAY BE INCLUDED IN MY NEWBORN SESSION? 

The newborn session is designed for immediate family members {newborn, parents and newborn sibling(s)}. However, it is entirely possible for us to customize your session to meet your needs. You’ll want to mention this info on your newborn questionnaire.


Fine Prints

HOW CAN I INCORPORATE A FINE PRINT OPTION INTO MY NEWBORN SESSION?

It's super-easy! We'll have a pre-session consultation to chat about the colors and/or theme that you have in mind for your baby's nursery. Once I photograph your newborn, I'll use your theme ideas as my guide to select the digital backdrop that lines up with your vision. From that point, we'll work together turning your vision into a reality!
