Newborns are typically photographed between 5-14 days new. In order to properly prepare and lessen overwhelming feelings, it is always best to schedule your session while you are still pregnant! I would also hate to not have a slot available for you! *Please see below for further scheduling FAQs.
All bookings require a $250 nonrefundable deposit fee to secure your session. Your remaining balance is due on the day of your session via invoice.
All newborn sessions are scheduled on weekday mornings. If you need a weekend session, there will be an additional $100 fee.
Below you will find the difference between "Standard" and "Creative" Family images.
Standard Vs Creative Family Images
Standard Family Portraits
Family portraits wearing your own casual clothing with "typical" newborn/family posing such as the image shown here.
This does not include: Gowns, flowing effects, wings, etc.
Creative Family Portraits
Images with more of an artistic touch and usage of photographer's gowns and accessories such as the image shown here.
These include: Flowing gowns, wings, crowns, artistic backgrounds, etc.
Where do you photograph newborns?
I photograph newborns at my studio located in Riverside, IL.
How do we know what to expect?
After booking, you will receive a confirmation email with all of your photo session details, my portrait contract, deposit invoice, and What to Expect guide! This guide will have information on what to bring, what is suggested to wear, when to feed baby, and much more. If there is something not answered in this guide, please feel free to contact me and we can always chat about it!
When will we get our photos?
Digital images are typically sent via online gallery 2.5 weeks after your session date.
When should we book our newborn session?
Booking your newborn session either at the same time as your maternity session, or around your 30th week of pregnancy is always best! I want to be sure to get your session properly planned for and in the books. We will initially go off of your due date, and once baby comes you will then contact me to confirm our scheduled date and time still works out.
Do we get to pick our photos?
At times, I will edit more images than what is included in your package. If this occurs, you will pick from all retouched, watermarked images with the opportunity to purchase additional images at a separate cost. Please note, this separate cost will add to more than the packages with more included images. Once finished, I will release the watermark from all included or purchased images and they will be ready for download.
Do you provide newborn props?
Yes! I have a variety of newborn props such as fluff, wraps, pants, headbands, beds, etc. If you ever would like to include anything very specific, please let me know and we can work together on it!
