WBS specializes in newborn lifestyle photography
There is nothing more stunning than the simple perfection of your baby. My focus is on natural, comfortable and safe positions for your little one, and capturing the interactions between your new or growing family.
Newborn Session (one babe): $275/$325 – weekday/end
Twins: $350/$400* – weekday/end
This relaxed and quiet session is designed for your newest little family member, but will also feature photos of him or her with parents and siblings.
Prints, wall art and digital files are not included in this fee. In order to ensure an amazing photography experience and flexible scheduling, I offer a very limited quantity of sessions each month. With that in mind, there is a minimum order requirement of $550 for all newborn sessions.
Newborn sessions take place at your home, where you and your baby will be the most comfortable. The shoot will last between two & three hours. This allows ample time for baby’s snack breaks, snuggle & comforting time, and many different lifestyle arrangements. I will bring studio lighting that produces beautiful, natural looking light and supply a variety of comfy blankets and colorful swaddles, as well as a few knitted hats and flowered headbands. If you have anything you would like your baby photographed with – a special homemade blanket or knitted hat, a family heirloom, et cetera, I would love to incorporate it.
If you desire the super sleepy, curled up newborn photos, it is best to have our session between 5-10 days of age. Newborns tend to break out with some fairly intense acne around 2 weeks as their skin adjusts to life outside the womb. I do try and avoid that short window that will significantly increase editing time. I have, however, done many a session with 5-6 week old little ones, and if there is availablity on my calendar, I will never turn you down for your newborn being “too old”.
If you know in advance that I’m the photographer for you, it is never too early to get on my calendar. I often schedule months in advance! I will use your due-date as a general idea of when we will be getting together, and we will create a definite session time once baby arrives.
Within one week of your session, I will post a sneak peek to hold you over until I have your full gallery of 25-30 photos prepared. Within three weeks of our photo session we will have our ordering party – you’ll get to see your full photo gallery for the first time, and we’ll discuss what to do new with your artwork! I’ll bring samples of the gorgeous products that I offer, and I will help you design a stunning wall gallery for your home, put together the perfect heirloom album, make a custom designed birth announcement or holiday card, or any other way we can dream up to make your photographs into something you can enjoy every day.

All prices are subject to change.
*Twin newborn sessions are more expensive because they generally are longer (3-4 hours), and also because they include a larger gallery of photos: 35-40 image options, instead of the 25-30 presented after the singleton session.
