A Newborn Session fee is $300 and includes the photographer’s time, editing and an online gallery of approximately 25-30 high resolution images with image print rights. Images will be available within 2-3 weeks of your session.
A newborn session is a very special and intimate session that should be scheduled prior to the baby’s birth, if possible. Scheduling 3 months in advance is most common. You would just then let us know when the baby is born and we will schedule the approximate day and time of the shoot then. In order to get those distinctive newborn images, these sessions are best if done during the first 2 weeks of life. These sessions typically last 2-3 hours to allow plenty of time for feeding, changing and to capture those sweet, sleepy pictures. For newborn photo shoots, we will travel to your home (must live in Charleston, SC or a surrounding city) so you don’t have to take the little one out. We will come equipped with backdrops, flooring, props and various style baby hats and headbands for use in your images. We also love to shoot images of the newborn with their parents and/or siblings in the natural environment of the home. These types of photos are always some of the favorite images from our newborn sessions.
To book a newborn session a retainer fee of $100 and a completed contract are due prior to your session in order to book and hold a date for you. The balance is due the date of the session.
