{Newborn Session} Thank you for inquiring!

Congrats on your pregnancy! Below is everything you need to know to move forward with scheduling your Newborn Session.

Schedule Early: The best time to schedule your newborn session is while you are still pregnant since I tend to book appointments several months in advance. I reserve your baby's due date on my calendar and then I ask that once your baby arrives you call, email me or text  so we set a date to get him/her in the studio. The ideal time to photograph a newborn is 5-12 days after birth. I currently only take sessions on the weekends, so we work within our schedules to find a good time for both of us. I normally encourage sessions take place on Saturday or Sunday morning at 9 or 10am since that seems to be the happiest hour for baby.

What to Expect: Sessions take place in my Frederick home studio. The session lasts anywhere from 2 to 3.5 hours depending on baby’s temperament and needs. I am experienced with newborns, so you will get a nice little break to relax. I provide coffee, comfy couch, TV and some snacks, but feel free to bring a snack, beverage or reading material to pass the time. I ask that sessions are for immediate family only. I strive for a quiet and serene environment for the baby, as that tends to generate the best pictures. Additionally, I ask that no personal pictures are taken during the shoot.

How Much?: The newborn session fee is $200 and there is a print/product minimum purchase of $250. You will also find my 2012 Welcome Packet attached below with further details.

How Do I Move Forward?: You need to fill out my attached Questionnaire found HERE and my Contract found HERE. Once these are completed, you can either send your check or I can invoice you through Paypal for the session fee. Once the session fee is paid, your due date is put on my calendar and your time is reserved.
