Newborn Mini Session

Newborn Mini Session

The newborn mini session is a newer addition to our studio offerings. It  bridges the gap between  a commercial high-volume studio and our Platinum 25 image package. They offer more flexibility for families and babies who need a boutique-style touch without the time commitment. 

A popular alternative to full sessions, 1 hour session includes 4 professionally crafted and edited digital files. This is plenty to create birth announcements and share with family and friends about your new arrival. Or you can have a canvas made or even a set of three (triptych) images to display over your baby’s crib. 4 images are enough to remember every little detail of how your baby looks today. 

Who are mini sessions for?

Mini sessions can be a great fit if you have an “older baby” (more than 14 days old), or if your baby is extra sensitive. These sessions are also good for families who do not have 3 to 4 hours for a full session. It allows us to get those adorable images in cute props without upsetting your newborn. Baby can be asleep or awake during a newborn mini-session.

Mini-Sessions are for images of the baby only. Clients receive a gallery of about 6 to 8 images. From here, clients select 4 images. Additional images are $50 each. If you are interested in images with parents or siblings, our full newborn session includes those images.

What happens at the consultation?

A consultation is mandatory for all clients. These are complimentary. During consultations Katie will discuss your priorities for images, color schemes and prop selection. She can offer guidance about what kinds of wall displays may suit your situation. Of course, everything will depend on the baby. But the more Katie understands about your preferences, the more she can prepare. Always think about the wall spaces in your home and what kinds of images you may like to have. Imagine how your baby will feel when they see  their photo displayed in your home. 

Newborn Mini Session is $18

Maternity portraits begin with a consultation. This is when we will talk about what kind of session is best for you. Our primary art is studio photography. Yet, for come clients, a location session is  best for them. We work with a few excellent private locations with beautiful surroundings. Sunrise or sunset maternity sessions are usually best. During your consultation, you will discuss locations, clothing, hair and make up, air brush tanning and more. 

Once the consultation is completed, our studio begins planning out your session. If you have decided to purchase or rent a gown, we assist you in finding the right gown and helping you decide on all the options available. We also spend considerable time planning poses and tableaus that best suit your personality and goals.

Maternity portraits sessions generally take about 90 minutes to 2 hours. We recommend women be photographed sometime during weeks 30 to 34. Planning a few weeks in advance is always best. We understand that this is not always possible. Last minute sessions are welcome and we will do our best to accommodate you. In general, our studio books out about 4 weeks in advance. Weekends book 6 weeks in advance or more.

What is a newborn photography session like?

Newborn photography is definitely an experience. It does take some time, effort and lots of patience. But when you see your baby’s images, you will be so happy you made the effort.

 

A full newborn photography session can take up to 4 hours. Not all sessions take this long. Babies who are sensitive or fussy make take longer to photograph. Our studio will provide you with details about how to best prepare your baby for the newborn photography session. Also, Katie will go over specifics at your consultation.

Posing newborns can take time and happens in stages. Some babies are able to be posed more quickly than others. It is good to remember that not all babies can do every pose.  Have reasonable expectations for your baby pictures.

Our studio is full of all kinds of cute props and clothes. Your baby will be posed and stylized according to our studio’s signature “look”. Please remember that not all babies are comfortable in every outfit. Some babies are sensitive to textures. Have reasonable expectations for clothing too. No matter what, we will make your baby look adorable for their newborn photography session.
