Session fees are all-inclusive (with the exception of Texas state sales tax of 8.25%) meaning you won't be blindsided by additional, outrageous print prices and confusing packages. Session fees cover any pre-session consultations, time and talent, use of props and backgrounds, professional editing and retouching, an online viewing gallery and a limited number of high resolution digital files. Discounted professional products and archival-quality prints are available separately. A non-refundable 50% initial payment and signed portrait agreement are due at the time of booking. The remainder is due on the day of the photoshoot. 

IN-HOME NEWBORN PORTRAIT SESSIONS

OMG, you just made a human! Let me capture the AWE-someness of your new little one's existence. The best timing is within the first 14 days, when your baby is super sleepy and bendy. They will only be this tiny for a very short period of time and you don't want to forget it! I will come to your home and bring everything needed. I can do portraits of just baby or more life-style type photos of your whole family. 

  • 2-4 hours of artistic and/or natural photography (if baby is sound asleep we can get done in about 2 hours but we need to be prepared for me to hang out for awhile if we have a hungry, fussy, or wide-awake baby).
  • Shareable online viewing gallery available for 60 days.
  • High resolution digital photos with printing rights included.
  • Packages starting at $595 (studio sessions starting at $395). Check out my Newborn Pricing Guide for a complete listing of available services and cost.
  • "Grow With Me" year-long package available, ending with a one year birthday CAKE SMASH session. 

FRESH 48 HOSPITAL SESSIONS

You just had a baby and these first hours are so precious and fleeting. Let me document all of the brand new-ness like the wrinkly feet, the tiny fingers, hospital details, etc. Put the cellphones and tablets away for a bit and let me capture all of the sweet family interactions with the new baby. These sessions are short and sweet and totally stress free. There's no posing, no props, and no pressure but the images are priceless...they are just so "real". 

  • Approximately 30 minutes of shooting time.
  • Usually held in the hospital within the first 48 hours.
  • Entire gallery of web-sized digital files in color and black & white. Prints and high resolution digital files sold separately.
  • Shareable online viewing gallery available for 60 days.
  • Delivery within 2-3 days.
  • $275.00 (or $137.50 when booked with a newborn session).

FAMILY/CHILD/maternity PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Family sessions may include as many family members as you would like and are held at the location of your choice. Baby milestone sessions are held in my home studio or a location of your choice. I do a 3-4 month session for 'Tummy Time' when the baby can hold his/her head up well and usually starts smiling for us pretty regularly.  A 6-9 month 'Sitter' session when s/he can sit up unassisted. And a one year birthday session if you aren't into doing a cake smash session. Of course we can do a child session at any age, but those are just the standards. Maternity sessions can also be held in my home studio or a location of your choice and are half off when you book a newborn session! 

  • Approximately 1 hour of shooting time.
  • 1-2 locations (within a short distance).
  • 10 retouched high-resolution digital files with printing rights, chosen from a viewing gallery of 30+.
  • Shareable online viewing gallery available for 60 days.
  • Delivery within 7-10 days.
  • $250.00

Cake Smash Sessions

These are so much fun! To celebrate this major milestone we let your little one have at it and smash the heck out of his first birthday cake. We can also do an alternative smash session using other messy foods (spaghetti, tacos, donuts, you name it). I will custom design a set according to a theme or color scheme of your choice. We will take a few portraits at the beginning of the session, then photograph the smashing (be aware some babies love it, some babies hate it, and some are somewhere in between...we never know what's going to happen!). Then we do a fun 'splash' session at the end to get the baby all cleaned up.

  • Approximately 1 hour of shooting time.
  • Held at my home studio or a location of your choice.
  • 15 retouched high-resolution digital files with printing rights, chosen from a viewing gallery of 30+.
  • Shareable online viewing gallery available for 60 days.
  • Delivery within 7-10 days.
  • $275 (you supply the cake and child's outfit) or $325 (I supply everything except the cute baby).
