Newborn Sessions

It is such a honor to be invited into a family’s  intimate and sacred space during the first few days and weeks they have brought home a new baby. We believe it is such an important time to document. It is when a mother and father are created for the first time (or the 5th), it’s when a little girl or boy becomes a big sister or brother, it’s when tiny fingers curl around a daddy’s, or big when grey eyes gaze up at mama listening to her soft coo.  As our own children grow, we look back at their early days and reflect on how tiny and pure they were. Our goal is to capture those fleeting moments in all of the homes we are welcomed into.

All newborn sessions are held in the comfort of your own home, ideally within 7-10 days of your baby’s birth, especially where posed images are desired. Additional time is allotted for all sessions, to allow for frequent breaks to feed, change diapers, and calm baby when needed.  We encourage you to watch your baby’s sleeping patterns, and we will book your session during a time when baby is typically nice and sleepy. Don’t be surprised if baby needs to feed more than normal. Being a model is HARD work and we have found that it’s not uncommon for baby to be very hungry throughout the session!  Once your session has been booked, more details on how you can prepare for your session will be sent to you via email.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

If you are looking for a more traditionally posed and styled newborn session, the Luxury Session is for you! The Luxury Session includes a lifestyle approach for both family and individual baby images, as well as 2-3 styled and posed newborn poses.

$550 Luxury Portrait Package

Session lasts approximately 3-4 hours. All digital files  (a minimum of 60 images) are hand edited and provided on USB, with select images also edited in black and white, including full print release rights and a 4×6 “proof” print of all color images.

Includes a print credit of $150, to be applied towards any print and product purchases.

A full list of our prints and products can be found here.

Newborn Page

Our Deluxe and Premium Sessions are shot exclusively with a “lifestyle” approach. This means that the images captured have a very natural feeling. While we may position you and your baby in a space with pretty light and give you guidance on positioning, the results appear unposed and authentic. Because these sessions are less traditionally “posed” there is more flexibility on when they need to be done – even up to 2 months old. This gives you a little more time to acclimate to life with a little one before bringing in a photographer.

$425 – Premium Portrait Package

Includes photography session at any Greater Seattle area location for approximately 2 hours. All digital files (a minimum of 40 images) are hand edited and provided on USB, with select images also edited in black and white, including full print release rights and a 4×6 “proof” print of all color images.

Includes a print credit of $85, to be applied towards any print and product purchases.
