2019 SESSION OPTIONS
Newborn Sessions are held in my studio located in Lemont, IL. Sessions are best booked at least 4 weeks before your due date to guarantee you a spot on my schedule and also to give us time to figure out how you’d like your session styled. Newborns are scheduled for within the first two weeks of birth since they are still so sleepy. I do have an ample supply of props, hats, outfits and headbands so you do not need to bring anything to your session except the baby!
Full Newborn Session…..$425
done between 6-12 days new, 2-3 hour session, 30-40+ high resolution images via digital download. Variety of poses and setups. I do provide props, wraps, blankets and hats to use during your session. *Parents may be included, siblings additional $25.
Added BONUS: A full newborn session includes a complimentary sitter session at around 6-7 months old which includes 10 high resolution images!
Mini Newborn Session….$275
done between 6-12 days new, 20-40 minute session, 12 high resolution images via digital download. Baby will be wrapped for these sessions. Great for those looking for a few images for announcements or prints.
***All newborn sessions are done during the week. I do not do newborn sessions on the weekends.
***Family shots/sibling shots may occur during the full session if desired, however, ALL SIBLINGS are required to have an alternate ride home after job is done (we begin with these and usually takes about 15 minutes). In my experience, having other children there the whole time is a distraction to the newborn and parents. I like the focus to stay on the baby and want to capture the best pictures possible of them during this precious age.
These sessions are a wonderful way to document your child’s big beginning moments in life such as first gummy smiles, sitting, crawling, standing, and of course turning the big O-N-E! Sessions are generally held in studio although outdoors is always an option.
Full Baby Session…$250
up to an hour in studio, 30-40+ high resolution images via download, 2-3 outfits with different backdrops and use of props (add $50 to add on cake smash for 1 year session)
Mini Baby Session…$150
short and sweet 20 minute session, 12 high resolution images via download, great for milestone photos
***Full sessions typically last 40 minutes while a Mini lasts around 20. Be sure to plan your sessions around your child’s nap schedule to ensure that your child is happy for pictures. Also, if your child is due to have shots, please do not schedule your photo session until 48 hours after they have had their shots. Please let me know what you plan on having them wear so I can plan their setups around outfit choices.
Cake Smash & Splash….$300
Cake sessions are about 45 minutes. They include formal pre-smash photos in an outfit of your choice, cake smash photos, and bath photos (baths are photographed in a super cute toddler-sized clawfoot bathtub). I custom design all sets and coordinate with your baby’s outfit. Because of allergies, cake is not included but I do know a few great local bakers who can coordinate the small smash cakes with the set.
Family sessions can be held indoors or outdoors. We will spend a full hour capturing smiling faces all looking at the camera and of course all the best in between moments.
up to an hour session for up to 5 people in your immediate family, 30-40+ high resolution images via download, these are outdoor sessions at select locations.
