I know first hand: those first few weeks go by in a blur! Ahh sleep deprivation and mixed with pure joy. So fleeting and beautiful. I don't have a studio, but I love traveling to clients' homes to capture all the cozy snuggles and love.
30 minute session:
30 minutes and 10 artfully edited images for digital download from an online album, chosen from a fully edited gallery: $275 plus tax (Gig Harbor only within 15 minutes of Kopachuck State Park or a travel fee will apply). Perfect if you just need a few photos. Additional images can be purchased from your gallery for $10 each, or you can buy the whole album for a discounted price. You will also receive a preview album to choose your edited style before I edit the rest.
60 minute session:
60 minute session and 20 artfully edited images for digital download, chosen from a fully edited gallery, with unlimited outfit changes: $450 plus tax. Must be within 30 mins drive of Gig Harbor otherwise travel fees apply. Additional images can be purchased from your gallery for $10 each, or you can buy the whole album for a discounted price. 30 minutes often isn't enough time, so this option insures for a stress free session with many artful combinations! You will also receive a preview album to choose your edited style before I edit the rest.
The fine print: I do not swaddle babies and pose them with props (many photographers are professionally accredited to do this and that is why newborn photos can cost so much), but you are welcome to dress pose your baby however you want, and I can make artful suggestions.
I prefer to use natural light, whenever possible. This means we will turn off over head lights which cast unflattering shadows on the face, and make skin tones funky. I ask that clients choose at least two spots to completely clear of clutter. Ideally, the living room couch, the nursery, and the family bed. If your natural light is too dim, we can take tons of photos in front of a well-lit window.
To find out what dates I have available, contact me to set a date, or a range of dates if you aren't sure when baby will be here. I can be flexible! I will then set up a booking page to pay a $50 retainer. If the weather is bad on our chosen day, we can reschedule at no additional cost.
Within 7-9 days, you will receive your album with download instructions via email, and you are free to print your photos anywhere you like. You can also order high quality prints and products right from your album via this website.
