Newborn & Maternity Sessions
I am thrilled to get to share this happy and exciting time with you! As each pregnancy is unique I feel it is very important that you maternity session is a customized experience as well. We will plan your session together to get the exact look and feel that you had envisioned. This ensures that you not only have a relaxed and fun session but look fabulous doing it!!
When to schedule your session?
Normally maternity session are schedule from 28-35 weeks. I want you to feel relaxed and enjoy your session, and lets face it ladies, we all know towards the end of a pregnancy things can get a bit swollen and uncomfortable.
What to wear?
We will discuss this is detail as we customized your session but normally we try to find something that shows off your cute baby bump. I recommend you have a couple of outfits selected so that you have a variety in your images. If you are comfortable showing off your belly we will discuss what style of image you would like and go from there.
Where is the session held?
Your session can be held in the comfort of your own home or an agreed upon outdoor location.
A retainer fee of $100 is due at the time of booking and is credited towards your selected package. Maternity Sessions are $250 and do include high resolution digital files. Also please note that I do offer a significant savings when a maternity and newborn session are booked together! Please contact me for more information.
Congratulations!!! Newborn images are close and dear to my heart. They are little for such a very short time. Getting the chance to photograph your newborn baby is a blessing and I am so thankful for the time I get to spend with each and everyone of them! Newborn sessions are typically done within the first 7-10 days of your baby’s arrival.
When to schedule your session?
Sessions are normally booked well in advance as I only take a certain number of newborn clients each month to ensure that everyone is photographed at the perfect time. I save your spot for the month you are due. As soon as your baby arrives you contact me and we firm up your scheduled time.
I realize that not one type of newborn session works for every family so I offer three different types of sessions. You can select which option will get you the newborn images that you have been dreaming about. Please keep in mind that your baby’s happiness and safety is my number one priority. We work on your baby’s schedule so if we need to stop for a feeding, changing or just a little cuddle then we do so! Therefore sessions can take anywhere from 2-3 hours for in studio and 2-4 for in home. The newborn session types are:
In Studio: Your session is done entirely at my in home studio in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia. We will do the cute curled up poses of your little one and then some fantastic studio shots of parents and siblings with baby.
At Home Lifestyle: The session is done in the comfort of your own home (preferably in the living room, nursery, or master bedroom) and it is very relaxed and all about your little one. We will capture moments with every family member and the special rituals that have already started to form with your baby. Don’t worry about cleaning your house, I have three kids and I know how it feels after you just had a baby! There will be some light posing but for the most part there will be a lot of cuddling and love.
At Home Ultimate: This is the best of both worlds! The session will take place in the comfort of your home and we do both studio and lifestyle newborn images. I will set up a mini studio in your home so we can create the cute curled up images of just your baby and then we will take images in your home while you enjoy your little one. No need to stress out about being out of your home on time or if you have forgotten something. I bring EVERYTHING to you! As with the lifestyle session there will be some light posing but for the most part there will be a lot of cuddling and love. Please be aware that in order to make your little one as comfortable as possible you will need to turn up the heat so they are comfortable losing their jammies. The warmer and happier your baby is the better she/he will sleep therefore giving us lots of amazing pictures. All you have to do is relax and I will take care of the rest!
What to wear?
It is best for your baby to be in a neutral sleeper when I arrive so that there will be no marking from elastics. While I am setting up you will get to take off their jammies, feed your little one again, do a diaper change and get them settled in for a warm sleep. Once they are settled we will begin.
The nonrefundable session fee is $100 and is due at the time of booking ( and is credited towards your package). Packages start at $250 and do include high resolution digital files. Also please note that I do offer a significant savings when a maternity and newborn session are booked together! Please contact me for more information. I can not wait to work with you and your little one!!
