What kind of Newborn sessions do you offer?

I offer a Lifestyle Newborn Session and a Newborn Portrait Session.  While these sessions are different they still capture amazing moments of your newborn baby.

What is the difference between Lifestyle and Portrait Sessions?

Lifestyle Newborn Sessions take place in your home typically in the nursery, master bedroom and sometimes the living room.  This session is designed to capture your baby's beginning at home.  Most of the moments that are captured are ones with you and dad interacting with each other as well as baby.  If you have older children this is a great time to document their love of their new baby brother or sister too.  Newborn Portrait Sessions capture your newborn in a portrait fashion, with blankets, wraps, headbands and other props.

What is the best time to do a newborn session?

Newborn's grow so quickly and change so much, so fast.  The most ideal time for a posed Newborn Session is within the first 3-7 days of birth.  They stay asleep and curl up into a  little bundle easier in that first week.  If your newborn is older than 2 weeks that's okay, you will still get incredible images of them that will capture their precious features.  Just know that to get them into those curled bundled positions may not be possible. A Lifestyle Newborn Session is best  to schedule when baby is about 2-3 weeks old. Baby is a little more alert and will give you amazing moments of interaction. 

How long will a session last and where does it take place?

 Both Lifestyle Newborn Sessions and Newborn Portrait Sessions last anywhere from 2 to 3 hours. This allows enough time for baby to eat and be changed.   Both of these sessions take place in your home with everything you need for  you and baby right in the comfort of your own home

What if my newborn baby is older than 3 to 7 days?

If your newborn baby is older than 3 to 7 days, don't panic!  Although 3 to 7 days is the most ideal time to capture your newborn in a little bundle,  you won't be disappointed a the beautiful moments that still can still be captured!

When should I book my newborn session?

Booking your newborn session before your little bundle arrives makes certain I have an available date on my calendar and that I  can give you the best possible service.  Contact me in your second trimester and I will pencil you in.  Then once your sweet baby has arrived just call me or shoot me an email letting me know and we will arrange the best time for your session.

When  will my photos be ready and how will I receive them?

At the time of your Newborn  Lifestyle Session  or Newborn Session we will schedule your gallery reveal.  This reveal will take place in the comfort of your own home where you will view all of your images from your session and decided what images you would like to purchase.  During this time I will help guide you through what images would look the best in framed canvases,  barnwood metal prints, as well as albums.  Once you order is placed, your prints and other products will be delivered in 4-6 weeks.  Session fees start at $350 which includes Jessica's time and talent and doesn't include any digital files.  Collections start at $300.  Most clients invest $650 for their session, digital images, products and prints.  For more Newborn Session prices click here.

Due to the in ability to schedule these session because baby's aren't always born when they are due,  I only take a certain number of Newborn Lifestyle and Newborn Sessions a month.   So book your session early to make sure I am available.  Click the button below to schedule your session today.
