MARYLAND NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

Session Details & Investment

Newborn photography sessions are designed to create a relaxing and personalized experience to best meet the needs of each unique family.

Before Each Session

Planning and efficiency are my love languages

My reservation process is streamlined to help you mark one thing off the to-do list quickly and easily. I provide a comprehensive Session Guide and we’ll meet virtually to discuss your preferences so we both feel completely prepared well in advance of the photo session.

During Each Session

Relax and take it all in!

I bring my studio to you, including props, outfits, and accessories, so you can focus on taking care of yourself while I focus on creating perfect images with your baby. I’ll encourage you to participate in at least a few photos which will be customized based on your comfort level.

After Each Session

Flexible Collections. Zero Pressure.

Two to three weeks after your session, you will receive an online preview of your full gallery of cherished memories. Every session gives you the ability to create a customized collection of artwork and digital files in the comfort and convenience of your own home, so you only choose what you love!

I SPECIALIZE IN THREE STYLES OF PHOTOGRAPHY SESSIONS:

EACH INCLUDES YOUR CHOICE OF DIGITAL FILES AND A WIDE SELECTION OF PRINT PRODUCTS

Includes at least 6 coordinated compositions featuring a variety of poses, props and backdrops

Newborn Photography FAQs

I accept reservations as early as 4 months prior to your estimated due date month.

The month of your estimated due date is used only as a placeholder with the understanding that we will schedule our session after baby arrives (scheduled deliveries may be an exception). This is a standard practice among Maryland Newborn Photographers, and I take very few reservations each month to guarantee scheduling flexibility.

Because I take so few reservations each month and babies often arrive early or late, I occasionally have enough flexibility to accommodate sessions for babies who have already arrived – it is always worth checking! I do require at least 5 days between a reservation and a session to prepare. For babies beyond 3 weeks of age, I recommend Lifestyle Sessions for the best experience.

Of course! When you book more than one session at the same time, for example, a Lifestyle Maternity Session and a Newborn Session, and maybe even a Lifestyle Session when your baby reaches a certain milestone age, each Session Retainer Fee will be reduced by $50. Clients often choose to combine their galleries into one album to tell a beautiful story of their growing family!

Newborn safety is my number one priority and I take every possible measure to protect every baby’s health.

I am up-to-date on Covid, Seasonal Flu, and TDAP vaccines. I wear a medical-grade mask at all times while in my clients’ homes or in close contact with a newborn, and of course, I wash and sanitize my hands so much that my skin is basically sandpaper.

No more than three sessions are scheduled per week to allow time to properly clean and launder all items used between sessions. Additionally, my contract requires rescheduling in the event of illness of anyone participating in a photo session. If you have specific requests or concerns, I am certainly happy to do as much as I can to make sure you are comfortable.
