I love everything about babies. Miniature fingernails, feathery eyelashes, tiny feet that fit in the palm of your hand, but most of all I love that everything about this brand new person is a mystery. And as new parents, you are given the gift of learning all there is to know about him or her!
In my last five years as a photographer I have welcomed more than 75 brand new people into this world. Every single baby takes my breath away. Every single expression and coo and tiny finger and toe is priceless and I want to capture it all.
Your newborn session will take place in your home. You are invited to relax and just be yourselves. I know you are tired, I know you are equal parts overjoyed and overwhelmed. Let me make capturing this moment easy for you so you never forget how it all started.
Newborn sessions typically last around 90 to 120 minutes. Before your session, I’ll send you details about how to prepare for the session. I will photograph your baby and your family in the living room, in the master bedroom and in the nursery as well as any other area that is special to you. I take a mixture of wide angle shots and close ups to build a gallery of images from our time together. Don’t worry if your favorite room doesn’t have enough light; I’ll bring along portable lighting.
Besides my camera equipment I will bring along some of my favorite props and accessories, and I will use what I find in your home to create images that match perfectly with your style. When you book a newborn session I’ll send you a questionnaire so I can learn all about your style and your hopes for the session. I like to keep the focus on the baby, so I use things that enhance the picture without distracting you from the star of the show!
Every newborn session includes digital images; I am telling your story and I want you to have the entire story. The high resolution photos, typically about 40, are delivered to you retouched in a password protected gallery. You can share the gallery with friends and family, order prints from a professional lab and download your digital files through your gallery link.
Capturing Grace Photography newborn sessions are $550. This price includes the session and the full gallery of digital downloads.
Sessions can take place on a weekday or a Saturday morning, typically when the baby is about two weeks old. Because due dates are not guarantees I build flexibility into my schedule by only booking three newborn sessions per month. That is why it is best to book your newborn session in your second or third trimester if you are able.
