Split Sessions

If you want both the sleepy baby posing and some photos at home, you can split the session and do the sleepy baby ONLY in studio and have a follow up session with in 30 days in your home. This cost is  for the two sessions.

Posing Session is up to 2 hrs in studio and the follow up in home session is up to 1 hr.

This is ideal for families with older siblings as it gives the older siblings a little more time to get use to the idea of having a new baby around but still gets the newborn in the studio for posing within the 14 day window

Packages

Maternity Session Packages

Maternity Session

 

TIME: up to 1.5 hours of photography.   The length is at the discretion of the photographer up to 1.5 hours.  Once they feel they have everything they need to provide you with great images,  they will let you know.  Most sessions are around 60 minutes, as long as everything goes smoothly. We build a 30 minute buffer in there so that there is no pressure if there is an accident, a break is needed or if you are running a little late.

LOCATION: Location of your choice approved by the photographer.  We want you to love where you have your photos taken.  So, it is generally up to you where you have your session.  We may have restrictions based on photographer’s travel time, photographer’s safety, events, weather, or accessibility of a location. If you need suggestions choosing a location, we will send you a list of our favorite spots after you have completed booking.

WHEN TO BOOK: We recommend book your maternity session around your 20-24th week of pregnancy. We typically like to shoot maternity sessions between your 32nd and 36th week.
