Booking a Newborn Session
Please book newborn sessions early to ensure a date. The session fee of $150 plus tax is due in-full within 7 days of booking to hold your spot on the calendar. An electronic contract must be signed and submitted at that time. In addition to the session fee, a minimum purchase of $399 is required from each session.
It is best to book your session during your second trimester. A tentative date is reserved for you based on your due date and then we will finalize scheduling once your little one arrives. Keep in mind that it is best to photograph newborns at 7-14 days old.
When & Where
Typically newborn sessions are scheduled on weekends. Sessions will take place at my studio in West Omaha where there is proper lighting and space to ensure quality images.
Please notify me the day of your baby’s arrival. Prior to your session, I will call you to discuss the details and what to expect the day of. Newborn sessions may take up to three hours to allow for your baby’s schedule including breaks for feeding and fussiness. Please plan accordingly.
All props and hats are provided. Etsy.com is a great place for hats, wraps, and newborn props!
Approximately two weeks after your session, you will be e-mailed a password to your online gallery. This gallery will be active for 7 days. A $50 reactivation fee will be added to your order if placed after 7 days.
Booking a Regular Studio or Outdoor Session
Please book your session in advance to assure a time and day of your choice. The session fee of $100 is due within 7 days of booking to hold your spot on the calendar. A $299 minimum purchase is required.
When & Where
Sessions are held at an outdoor location of your choice. Sessions are typically booked early morning or evening when light it as it’s best.
Indoor sessions are photographed with studio light in my studio.
What to Wear
You are the star! Wear what is comfortable for you! Think simple, classic and color! For outdoor sessions, avoid all white and black clothing as well as busy patterns. If more than one person is being photographed, avoid really matchy clothing.
For newborn sibling photographs and family photographs with newborns, I recommend wearing neutrals like white or cream. This give a forever, classic look.
Details & Proofing
A typical session last about an hour, give or take some time for kids to warm up to the camera.
Approximately 2-3 weeks from your session, you will receive an email with a password to your private gallery. Your gallery will remain open for 7 days for you to choose your print selection and show your photos to friends and family.
