Cherish Newborn Portrait Session

Congratulations on your family's new addition!  I am so excited for you! Your beautiful baby will grow up so quickly, so my goal is to capture each and every detail of your newborn baby while they are still small, allowing you to never forget how precious this time in their life is. 

Scheduling your session

Before your session, I would love to chat with you and find out exactly what you envision for your newborn's session.  Colors of outfits, where you would like to display your beautiful wall art from the session, and all the squishy poses you would love for me to capture of your new baby.   Cherish Newborn sessions can be scheduled months in advance.  I generally ask for 2-3 weeks notice to schedule your session, but I know sometimes life happens.  I will always make time for babies!  There is a $200 session fee which acts as your retainer to hold your session along with a signed electronic contract.  Products are sold separately.

The day of the session

Newborn sessions take place in my home studio located in Lake Ridge, Virginia off of Old Bridge Road. There are also a few great "hiding" spots around my yard that we could definitely use during the session if you would like to include some beautiful outdoor portraits.  If you are interested in a lifestyle newborn session, please let me know and we can talk about that option.

I have a wide variety of props including blankets, footstools, baskets, and newborn headbands and outfits, but you are also welcome to bring your own if you would like to include them in your portraits.  A special family heirloom, military uniform, or a favorite stuffed animal would personalize your photos beautifully. 

Newborns are best captured when they are still pliable and can curl up in womb like poses between the age of 5 to 12 days new.

After the session 

About 2-3 weeks after your session, I'll come to your home for a Reveal and Order appointment to show you all the gorgeous edited portraits that were taken during your session.  Feel free to invite anyone you would like to see the portraits so we can order everything at that time.  And just for taking the time to order everything that day, I'll offer you a little gift!

Since you already exactly what you want like to create this should only take 1 hour.  We'll pick out your favorites to feature in your heirloom album, show you the sizes you picked out on your walls, and then order some favorites for grandparents.  Once we've finished ordering all your lovely creations, you'll receive an online gallery which will be available for only 1 week to share with your family and friends.  I value my client's privacy, so the gallery can be password protected if you'd like.  After that you can just sit back, enjoy your children's laughter, and wait in anticipation for delivery day!
