Tiny fingers and sweet little toes. Your very own precious miracle so new and perfect captured forever in a truly beautiful way. The best time for a newborn session is between 6-14 days, but it’s never too late to capture your beautiful baby! I will not turn you away due to age, newborns can be photographed up to a month old, or even older for premature babies. We only accept 2 due dates per week to guarantee studio time; please contact me early in your 3rd trimester (or sooner) to book your newborn photography experience.
I specialize in creating timeless, custom artwork for my clients. Your photography experience will be tailored to you and your family to create unique art that tells your story and captures your special moments. You’ll be presented with heirloom products that you’ll love and cherish forever such as stunning wall art galleries, custom-made albums and more. Our first step is getting to know you with a pre-consultation.
The pre-consultation is ideally held at my studio, where you can see firsthand all the beautiful items available for your use during a session. This consultation is important as it allows me to get to know you a little better. During the consultation, we’ll discuss your expectations, color choices, props, poses and more which will allow me to tailor your session to you and make this an unforgettable experience. If you like what you see and would like to book, you’ll be able to sign the contract, schedule your photography experience and pay the deposit at this time.
Your newborn session will take place in my photography studio in Solon, Ohio. Sessions usually take up to 3 hours and can include parent and sibling images as well. I have everything you’ll need for baby’s session here, no need to bring anything but your little one. Please plan on feeding during your time in the studio to ensure baby is full and content.
The studio was designed with baby’s comfort in mind. Everything I use is soft and comfortable on baby’s skin. The newborn closet is routinely being updated with new fabrics, wraps, outfits, hats and more to provide you with unique, one-of-a-kind images. Your comfort is important to me as well. A plush sofa provides you the room to relax while being just steps away from your little one. Beverages and snacks are available as well as WiFi. Feel free to rest, watch a movie, or catch up on a favorite book.
Viewing & Ordering Appointment
A few weeks after your session, you’ll be invited back to the studio to view your beautiful images for the first time and place your product order. The images will be displayed on a gorgeous slideshow where you’ll be able to sit back, relax and relive those special moments. I’ll walk you through all the products I offer and show you samples so you can see which ones you’d like to purchase. I’m here to help you through the entire process; from narrowing down your favorite images, to designing a gorgeous album or wall display, to ordering the perfect heirloom products that will showcase your new artwork in the best way possible. You can pay for your order at the appointment via debit card, credit card or cash.
You can look forward to receiving your new artwork 2-3 weeks after you’ve had your viewing/ordering appointment. Specialty items such as albums may take longer.
Newborn sessions are $200 and include the pre-consultation, up to 3 hours for your session, use of all props, professional retouching, my time and expertise, the viewing/ordering appointment, design work and delivery of your order. The session fee is a non-refundable deposit to secure your session and is due upon booking. No digital images or products are included with the session fee.
There is a special bump to baby discount - when a maternity and newborn session are booked together, the maternity session fee is discounted to $75. Both session fees are due at the same time.
All products are available from an a la carte menu. I only want you to invest in what you love, not what has been decided for you in a package. This way, you create your own collection and choose exactly what you want to purchase. Most families invest anywhere from $500 to $1500 on their collection of products.
I love being able to provide families with beautiful, tangible memories of their most precious moments in life. Wall art galleries that will make you fall in love with your images each time you walk past them, custom-made albums that provide you with a sentimental keepsake of your little one’s first few weeks of life, and many more exceptional products that will showcase your new artwork perfectly.
If you’re looking for special keepsakes and something that will be passed down for generations to come, you’re at the right place!
It is so important to me that your artwork is showcased in the best ways possible with stunning, heirloom products for your home. I believe portraits should be on your walls and in your hands for all to see and cherish everyday, not on a USB buried in your desk. All products are sourced from the best professional printers and craftsmen to turn your new portraits into the most beautiful, tangible pieces of artwork that will be passed on for generations.
You will have unique wall art options, from wood and acrylic prints to canvas and framed prints. I also offer custom designed albums, story boxes with fine art prints, birth announcements and more. Contact me to schedule a complimentary consultation to see our products and artwork options, discuss your unique photography experience and start creating your legacy.
