Having a baby is a pivotal moment in your life.
From this day forward, everything changes.
I am honored to document your baby’s very first days so you’ll never forget.
REMEMBER THE BEGINNING.
When should I schedule my newborn session?
If possible, I suggest booking your newborn session before your baby is born to make sure I’m available. If your baby is already born, I suggest you contact me immediately to see if I can make room in my schedule.
When and where will the session take place?
Newborns change incredibly fast, so it’s best to photograph them when they’re between 6 – 10 days old. This gives enough time for them to begin eating well, but still allows for them to be comfortable in snugly, womb-like poses.
Sessions take place in my cozy home studio located about 25 miles west of Portland. In the studio, you’ll have access to my many props and wraps, and we have everything you might need right here. As a mother of two myself, I understand that having a baby is a beautiful, but demanding experience. I try to make newborn portraits as easy as on you as possible. All you have to come and relax!
What kind of qualifications do you have for working with babies?
Newborn babies hold a very special place in my heart and I am so humbled by the trust from parents to document their babies so fresh and new. Newborn safety is my number one priority, and I ensure that all the poses I do are safe for your baby. I am CPR and first-aid certified and have trained specifically in newborn safety with industry leaders Kelly Brown and Stephanie Robin.
How much does it cost?
Newborn portrait sessions are $200 and include a planning consultation, a full session capturing portraits of your newborn, 20-30 professionally hand-edited images for you to choose from, a post session viewing and ordering appointment, and complimentary sessions for life. The session fee does not include prints, art products, or digital images. To see more information on pricing, please click here or contact me.
What kind of products do you offer?
As part of the personal portrait experience, I pride myself on offering beautiful, heirloom quality art products that are special and unique. These include custom, high quality albums, stunning wall art, digital files, and a variety of other one-of-a-kind products.
