Newborn Photography

 

Tiny and oh-so precious, newborns are a gift that signifies the beginning of a new chapter in a parent's life. This is a time of wonder, curiosity, happiness, exhaustion, and joy. Our little ones constantly leave us in awe of the beauty that is their tiny forms. Capturing all that is precious and cute, I strive for those images that you will hold close to your heart as memories of how your little one once was. 

                                        

 

Newborns are best photographed between 5 and 10 days of age (2 weeks at the outer limit) in order to have the greatest likelihood of a sleepy/content baby who is easy to mold into beautiful and cute positions. Extreme care and safety will always be taken with your child. Older babies can certainly still be photographed but be advised that they are often more alert and are not as poseable.

 

Newborn sessions are typically 2-3 hours long to accommodate for feeding and settling. Bonnie enjoys making the newborn shoot as personable to you and your family as possible and so, the session will normally be held in your own home, as long as all lighting and space requirements are met. The session may include a variety of props and pre-planned/staged poses. The greatest portion of time will be spent strictly on the newborn itself, but poses with mother and/or father may also be included.

NEWBORN ADD-ONS

 

Newborn/Family split package -additional $150

Newborn sessions are very lengthy and time-consuming, which can be very stressful for new parents and baby. If you are interested in having siblings included, I have created a newborn/family split package. This package includes EVERYTHING in the Beginning of Time package and for an additional $150 you can include the entire immediate family, in a separate shoot, done at a later date. This separate shoot must take place within one month of the newborn session. This will give the entire family a chance to settle in and will help to split up the lengthy time it takes to properly capture your precious newborn.

 

This addition to the Beginning of Time package includes:

  • 45 minutes of shooting time (focus being on the entire family WITH newborn, and split up WITH the newborn)
  • 10 additional fully edited, keepsake images on disc
  • 30 day access to your own personal on-line gallery
  • one set of professionally developed 4x6 prints, of the images you choose
  • your choice of either 1 8x10 print, or 2 5x7's prints
  • an additional $20 print credit 

 

 

Anticipation/Newborn package -additional $75

Capturing the beauty of pregnancy and those feelings of anticipation are important to some expectant mothers/couples. If you would like to include these magical moments BEFORE baby arrives, this popular package can be easily added to the Beginning of Time package for additional $75 and can include just the mother, the couple, and/or the entire family. The most ideal time, to capture the fullness and beauty of pregnancy, is between 5-2 weeks before the due date.

 

This addition to the Beginning of Time package includes:

  • one-on-one pre-shoot consultation
  • 45 minutes of shooting time (the main focus being on the pregnant mother-to-be)
  • 10 additional fully edited, keepsake images on disc
  • on-line access to your own personal viewing gallery (purchasing this add-on will extend your on-line viewing subscription until the end of your Beginning of Time or Newborn/Family split package(s) end)
  • one set of professionally developed 4x6 prints, of the images you choose
  • your choice of either 1 8x10 print, 2 5x7's prints OR an additional $15 credit
