Newborn Investment


My newborn sessions have a vintage style and the focus revolves around your new perfect little baby. I use many different props and soft knit backdrops, but I always want your baby to be the center of the attention. Please check out my blog page to see recent sessions and my style, I want you to absolutely love your newborn images. The hats, headbands, wraps, etc, shown on my website and social media are all available to use with your baby’s session.

Newborn Sessions are for babies whom are 4 -14 days new, and booking before your baby is born is preferred to make sure I can get you in. All newborn sessions are all inclusive with no further purchases required, come with high resolution digital files + print release, and access to online ordering gallery. You will receive a link to download all the images to your computer or flash drive.

TO BOOK: Check out the information below, and then just send me an email using the inquire tab above. Include which session option you’re interested in and any questions you have. Many families book their due dates in their 2nd trimester, but I rarely turn away a new baby 🙂 . After all the details about your session are worked out, I will send over my contract with $75 non refundable deposit which goes towards your session balance. Then we just wait until your baby arrives.
