Pricing and Session Information

Custom portrait photography is an investment. This isn't just a flatscreen TV you'll have to replace in a few years when the technology wears out and becomes outdated. These are heirlooms that you'll save from a burning building. That TV; replaceable. Photos of your pregnancy or baby; not replaceable.

I know your time is valuable, as well, so I'm not going to waste it. My sessions are all inclusive, which means the price of the session covers the whole kit and kaboodle. The price includes the session and all the high-res digital image files (it also covers all the behind the scenes stuff that will just bore you if I lay it all out here). After our session together, you'll be able to print your images however, whenever and wherever you'd like.

There's a simple one time deposit to hold your session date and then you're good to go:

$100 - baby and maternity sessions

$200 - newborn sessions

$300 - first year baby plan packages

The balance of your session is outlined in the session pricing below. This portion of the session is due the day of (or before your online gallery will be released).

NEWBORN PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Newborn photography sessions are offered in both posed and lifestyle formats. Posed Newborn photos are best done in the first 2 weeks after birth and are done at my studio located in Golden Valley, MN, or can be done in the comfort of your own home. Lifestyle Newborn photos are best done at home, using your home as a backdrop. Fresh 48 Newborn photos take place in the hospital (done within 2 days of birth). I have extensive experience and training working with newborns to always make sure they are comfortable and safe during the session. During the pre-session consultation, we’ll also discuss ways you can ease in this process before and during the session.

BABY PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Baby photography sessions are a great way to capture your little one at any stage or phase during their first year of life. Milestones typically start around 3-4 months when they start to keep their head up at tummy time and smile at your silly faces and sounds. They hit another milestone around 6-7 months when they can sit on their own unassisted and may even begin to crawl. At around 9-10 months they should be crawling and possibly cruising (walking around furniture while still holding on). By 1 year of age, your baby may be walking. Regardless of what developmental milestone your baby hits, every age and stage is a treasure to capture. These sessions can be done just about anywhere, however most popular are outdoor sessions when the weather cooperates, or at the studio.

MATERNITY PORTRAIT SESSIONS

Maternity photography sessions are a wonderful way to capture a very fleeting time in your life. Around 7-8 months is an ideal time to have your maternity photos taken. Your baby belly should be nice and round, but you won’t be at that point of being extremely uncomfortable. These sessions include family and/or pets and are a fun way to incorporate ultrasound photos, baby shoes and any other items that may have significance to you. Sunset sessions are one of my favorite way to capture this time, however, due to Minnesota’s inclement weather in the late fall and winter, a studio session is always a great option and I guarantee you’ll look just as radiant and beautiful there, too.
