Stefanie specializes in newborn portraiture with a timeless style, where your baby is always the main focus of every image. The newborn phase slips away so quickly, and it’s gone before you even know it. Those brand new baby details, peely hands, itty bitty toes – are all over in a matter of days. Our goal is to capture your little one in a way that they will never be again – brand new.
The art of photography is much more than producing pictures on paper or files on a computer. It’s about capturing moments in time that you can look back on and creating artwork to be enjoyed today and for years to come.
We offer several packages to fit your needs and budget, each including digital files. After your session you will have the option to purchase additional images and/or wall art, albums, or boutique products after the session if you wish.
the newborn investment begins at $550. Contact us to request the full pricing guide and different session options.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do i book a newborn session?
Contact me and I will email you a brochure with package options and session information. All newborn packages require a $150 retainer to hold the session (the remaining session balance will be due day of session). Once you pick your desired package an invoice will be sent to you for the retainer, this must be paid within a week of the invoice being sent in order to hold your session. Once the invoice is paid you will be put in my calendar and then we wait for your little miracle to arrive!
when are newborn sessions done?
Newborn sessions are typically done 4-16 days after birth. When you have your baby you will contact me before you leave the hospital so we can set up the session within the specific time period. I only do a certain amount of sessions per month so there’s no overbooking.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING?
I supply all props needed for the session. All you need to bring is yourselves and relax! If there is something special you would like to bring to incorporate into your session (family heirloom, something sentimental) please let me know prior to your session. There is also a questionnaire you will receive prior to your session that will help me plan according to your color likes and dislikes.
I have other children that I’d like to include. Can I bring them? What should they wear?
Siblings are welcome to join us in the Signature and Legacy packages and available as an add on for the Petite Wrapped packages. Your newborn is my number-one priority and requires my full attention. Newborns can also sense when mommas are anxious and tense which can affect the session flow. I will typically do the sibling/family photos first as they can get a bit bored in the studio. This allows another adult to take them for a drive, a walk, or even to go home or to a local park, or out to breakfast, while we focus on baby and will ensure a smooth and relaxing environment. I recommend that siblings wear solid, neutral colors to match or coordinate with parents.
Why do newborn sessions take place in your studio?
My studio allows me access to all of my props and gives the most consistency and the most beautiful images for my clients to cherish forever. Also, there’s no cleaning a house or trying to organize after having your baby (that can be super overwhelming and stressful!). Come, relax, have some snacks or refreshments and let me handle the rest! The studio is kept at 80 degrees for the entire session so make sure you dress accordingly!
What products do you offer?
“Wow I love that flash drive on your wall.” That sounds silly right? In this age of digital photography it’s easy to lose our precious moments amongst computer files or on a disc that collects dust in a drawer. Digitals are important for archival purposes but I truly believe images should be proudly displayed in your home. For that reason I offer a curated product line of high-quality items from prints to wall displays, with something to fit a variety of needs and styles. We know how busy life is so we handle the process of creating stunning portraits and then delivering it to you as a finished product for your immediate enjoyment now and for your family in the future.
Will you create a wall display for us?
YES! Custom wall displays are one of my favorite things to create. Canvas, wood and metal clusters are custom designed to fit the space in your home. I love how wall clusters tell your family’s story and capture that specific time in your life. A client recently said to me “Every time I walk into my family room I fall in love with my kids all over again!” This is what I aim to do. I truly believe kids self esteem soars when they see photos of them in their home.
