Portrait Session pricing

Custom newborn and family photography is a luxury service.

Custom newborn and family photography provides you with timeless, professionally captured memories of your baby’s earliest days. These are moments that pass by so quickly, and having high-quality photos and artwork allows you to cherish and relive those precious moments for years to come.

While custom portrait photography may seem like a splurge, the benefits far outweigh the initial investment. It’s an opportunity to celebrate and honor the arrival of your new addition in a meaningful and beautiful way, creating memories that will be cherished for a lifetime.

“These photos are absolutely amazing! I was worried how they would turn out since she was not super into it but every single one of them I can’t stop looking at! I laughed at the one of her lying down in tummy time. Thank you so much for these and cannot wait to do her last session!”
McKenzie

First Year Baby Plan Packages

Most clients choose to document their baby’s first year with a First Year Baby Plan Package. Each package includes a discount, priority scheduling, and 3 sessions to document your baby’s newborn days and 2 milestones as they grow toward their first birthday.

Your package can be customized to include just the sessions you want. The most popular Baby Sessions are the “sitter session” at 6-7 months and the One Year Session.

Cake Smash photos can be added to the One Year session at no extra cost. Just bring the baby and the cake. I’ll provide the decorations and the photography.

You can add a Maternity Session or additional Baby Session at the “per session” rate listed in the package price below.

The First Year Baby Plan Bonus Keepsake Album

This beautiful album is professionally hand-crafted by my professional print lab. At the end of the plan (after your baby’s one-year/first birthday session) you’ll be presented with an online gallery with all of the images from each session gallery.

You’ll get to choose your favorite images to be printed for the album along with your choice of beautiful fabric and vegan leather album cover.

This is a wonderful keepsake baby album that you’ll be sure to love and value more each and every day. It’s my FREE gift to you for choosing me to capture your baby’s first-year milestones.

Pricing is subject to change without notice. Pricing does not include MN State Sales tax and will be added to the invoice at booking. Due to the nature of custom portrait photography, all sales are final.

Have questions about your maternity, newborn, or baby photography session?

I'm here to help guide you every step of the way

When should I reserve my newborn portrait session?

My availability fluctuates and I take a limited number of sessions each month, so I highly recommend reaching out to me in your 2nd trimester to reserve a spot on my calendar.

 

What is the best age to photograph a newborn?

Studio newborn sessions are best done in the first 2 weeks after delivery. Lifestyle newborn sessions can be done anytime in the first 2 months.

What if I deliver my baby early, or late?

No need to worry. The date reserved for your newborn portrait session is flexible. I shoot 7 days a week and can always adjust my schedule to make sure we get your session in within the first 2 weeks after delivery.

What is the best age to photograph an older baby?

Baby milestone sessions can occur at any age and time in their first year. I recommend having photographs taken at the most significant milestones, the "sitter" stage around 7 months, and their first birthday.

Do you take family portraits?

I do! But these sessions are reserved for clients returning to me after an initial newborn or baby portrait session.

When is the best time for pregnancy photos?

Maternity photo sessions take place between 28-34 weeks. Around that time you'll have a nice-sized baby belly, but shouldn't be too uncomfortable yet. Often times swelling kicks in in the last month of pregnancy, so it's best to have your photos taken before 36 weeks.

What should I wear to my photo shoot?

Pinterest is a great resource for what-to-wear guides! This is a personal choice and preference, however, this is what I recommend:

 

  • wear what's comfortable in solid colors and simple patterns
  • avoid matching outfits; instead, coordinate with 2-3 colors
  • avoid shirts with logos or writing on them
  • long dresses/pants look best
Can I bring props to my portrait session?

Yes, absolutely! I encourage the use of props if they're meaningful to you. Ultrasound photos, baby shoes, and books can personalize your maternity photos.

Knitted blankets and outfits given as gifts or passed down to your baby can add special meaning to newborn photos and baby photos.

Otherwise, in my posed newborn sessions, I provide all of the props based on my style in your choice of colors.

What if I need to cancel my portrait session?

As a mom, I understand that things come up; illness and unplanned events happen in life. No, worries. Your session can be rescheduled to another date and time that works for both of us.

Do you offer prints, artwork, and session albums?

I do! Although my pricing is all-inclusive, which means you'll receive your beautiful images in high-resolution digital files, you'll have access to purchase professionally printed gift prints, artwork, and albums directly through your online gallery. There's no obligation, but it's there if you want it.
