$200 1-hour session will include an online gallery with a minimum of 25 fully edited images.
$250 1.5-2 hour / 2 locations or outfit changes will include an online gallery with a minimum of 35 fully edited images.
$250 For this type of session I do not put a time limit because little babies can be quite unpredictable and let's face it, they are in charge! So if a feeding is needed during the session by all means you feed that baby and this also makes for some beautiful moments to remember. In a lifestyle newborn session the entire family is involved and I will capture you all interacting with your new little bundle. I will do some posed newborn shots as well but majority will have a lifestyle feel.
Session style guide
I recommend wearing something more bold and colorful with a lot of texture
to show off personality. This is an opportunity for your child or yourself to shine!
For children, I usually recommend bare feet for indoors and boots or shoes
that compliment their outfit for outside. I recommend clothing that has texture,
such as knitting, embroidery, dark faded denim, buttons, and ruffles. This type
of clothing tends to photograph well and adds a lot of visual interest.
It can be difficult to coordinate colors and not look too matchy. I recommend
picking a few colors, but try not to put them in the same exact clothing. The
more layers, textures and colors, the better. Just pick colors that compliment
each other. I recommend bright or deep colors (jewel tones like mustard yellow,
deep purple, turquoise, dark pink, etc.) and try to stay away from all white. I do
recommend investing in your child's clothing for the session since it does make
a huge difference in the final product. Search out local or online boutiques for a
more one of a kind style.
Choose a style you like and a few colors you like as well. I recommend having
the parents dress fashionable, yet simple and focus more of the funky, unique
style on the kids. If you have 5 people all dressing with a lot of layers and
accessories it can be too much. Dark jeans that have a grit to them is always
a great choice for the parents or especially the husband. If you are going to
wear a print, stay away from small prints and not a lot of visual interest
(think bold!). Continue to think about texture and color. You may think that
certain colors don’t go together, but again think out of the box and have fun!
