2023 Newborn Sessions will be changing a little from sessions in the past. What I love about newborn sessions isn’t finding the newest themes or a ton of props, but keeping them simple. The focus should be on the newborn and their family. To achieve this, I will be moving to a more organic style of newborn sessions. Think whites, creams, and earth tones with textured fabrics and natural wood props. There will be a pop of color here and there, but mostly, I want to keep things simple, organic and beautiful.
Here is a guide for you if you’re wondering what some of the wording means.
Simply Posed Newborn Session
The simply posed newborn includes family and siblings, but you can also do just baby. This includes the use of a one basket/bucket prop, one wrapped pose and some beanbag poses. I will always incorporate white and creams into these sessions, but we can use a pop of color if you have a preference. This session is also $450 plus tax.
My Baby Story – A Year of Milestones
MY BABY STORY – is a collection of milestone sessions I offer to my newborn clients. It includes a personalized linen keepsake photo box with 5×7 prints from your newborn session for $150.
Milestone minis are then $125 each and include 5 – 5×7 prints and 5 digital images. You can come once a month or just when baby is hitting those sweet milestones like tummy time (3 months), sitting (6-7 months), standing (10 months) and one year! Then at the end of the year you have a wonderful collection of prints for your keepsake box.
The milestone sessions are organic, simple and sweet. We capture the details. The sweet smiles, They drooling smiles too. Little toes, baby laughs, and everything in-between.
Beanbag poses are kind of a weird way to describe these. Simply baby is placed on a beanbag covered with a fabric. We can wrap baby or keep them nude. Some poses will be natural like the top left where I let baby tell me how they want to lay. Others, like the top right, will be more posed. There will be close-ups and full body shots.
Organic Baby Only Newborn Session
A baby only session includes wrapped pose and prop/bucket pose. There will be 8 images included in this session for $250 plus tax.
Fresh 48 Session
Fresh 48 sessions take place in the hospital within 48 hours of baby being born. They include family and baby shots. These are mostly lifestyle in nature meaning not really posed. Fresh 48 sessions are $350 for 15 images.
Themed Newborn Sessions
Themed sessions are an additional fee. We will include one additional set to the Simply Posed Newborn Session that is themed with your choice of theme. Cat will purchase everything needed for your theme including props, outfit and backdrop. To add-on a theme to any package, it’s an additional $200 and will include 5 additional images.
