- What types of packages & pricing are offered? A full newborn session is $400. It lasts about 2-2.5 hours & includes 30-45 edited images in color and black & white. It also includes 25 custom birth announcements. If you’d like, you can add parents to this session for $50 (or $25 for one) & siblings for $35 each. This includes family pictures, siblings & individuals of the children. A mini newborn session is $275 for 1 hour (baby only). It includes 10 edited images in color and black & white. You cannot add siblings or parents to this session.
- When is the best time to book my session? I recommend booking your session mid-pregnancy, as they do fill up fast. I only take a limited number of newborn clients because I don’t know when they’ll arrive and I need to get them in as soon as I can when they do.
- How do I book my session? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your due date. You will then receive an email detailing the session, answering any questions, providing the studio address and any other information about the session. You will also receive another email invoice that you can pay online. This is the deposit – answered below.
- Why do you take a deposit & how much is it? The deposit is $100 & holds your spot on the newborn calendar. Because I have limited space & time, I only put clients on the calendar once their deposit has been paid. The $100 deposit goes toward your total cost – the remainder is paid at the session.
- How do I schedule my date & time? Once your baby is born, or if you schedule a date to be induced, you can message me & we’ll schedule an exact date & time. I like to see babies within the first 10 days so this way I know exactly how old they’ll be when we make arrangements.
- If I’m adding siblings to the session, when do they come? I always recommend that mom & baby come at the start of the session – dad, grandma, babysitter, etc can bring older siblings at the end. This way, we get all of the sleepy, naked baby pictures done before the wild ruckus begins. It’s always a little crazy with a new baby & it’s best to get the kids there once we’ve finished all the other pictures.
- Do you offer a first year package? Yes, there are a couple options there as well. The Grow With Me package is $900 & includes a full session for newborn, 6 month & one year. This package saves you $100 & is a fun way to capture your child’s first year. There’s also other options – email for more info.
- If I’m a return client, do I get a discount? Yes, I love seeing my clients again – so all return clients receive $50 off the full newborn session!
Hopefully this helps answer some of the questions I get daily. If you have additional questions, or would like to book your session – please email me at email@example.com
I hope to see you all in 2017! Merry Christmas & a blessed New Year. ~ Paige
