First Glimpse: Fresh 48 (in home or at hospital) $300
This is a special session for new families who want the early hours of their newborn’s life captured without labour and birth documented. It’s an opportunity for those fresh, exciting interactions between you, your partner, your baby, siblings, and family to be documented for you.
Your Fresh 48 Session includes up to 1 hour of lifestyle photography, within the first 24-48 hours after birth. These shots typically include treasured moments of baby’s first day -- such as bonding family time, siblings meeting baby, baby’s first bath, detail shots, and breastfeeding if wanted.
I will come to your place of birth (hospital or home) during daylight hours. Unlike a traditional Newborn Session, I will not be posing baby or bringing props or lights; this session is meant to be lifestyle documentation, capturing baby’s precious “freshness” in a natural way.
Also included with your Fresh 48 Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 20-30 high quality edited photos, with print release.
Your Birth Story $750
Your Birth Story Photography Session documents the most intimate hours of labour and delivery journey. These shots include your most emotional and raw moments as you welcome your little one into the world, utilizing tasteful, strategic, and flattering angles. Having a Birth Photographer allows your support group or partner focus on you, but still having all the raw emotions and intimate events of your birth documented. I will be there through your labour journey, and to capture baby’s first breath, first cry, and first latch.
Your photographer will be on call 24/7 for approximately 4 weeks (approximately 38 weeks until birth for a typical pregnancy, some exceptions are taken into consideration). *Active labour is considered from approximately 6cm internal examination or when contractions are regular, rhythmical, and increasing in intensity or frequency.
Your photographer is present to capture an unlimited amount of hours of active labour and delivery, including up to two hours after birth. It’s during this time you may wish to include lifestyle shots of parents, siblings, or other family members.
Also included with your Birth Story Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 80+ high quality edited photos, with print release (number of images depending on length of labour).
New Lifestyle Session Options for You...
After over 7 years of Photographing your Weddings, Newborns, and Families, I can hands down tell you my single favourite thing to capture: connection. Whether it’s the tension holding in the space before a kiss, families snuggled up on a blanket, private intimate giggles together, or big siblings holding their newborn baby – I adore the realness, the rawness, and the beauty in the authentic moments together. I want more. I want to offer you more session varieties to give you opportunity for me to capture your genuine connections. I’m excited to be part of your intimate moments, authentic connections.
Along with all the other Photography Investment Options, I’m happy to offer NEW Session options beginning in 2021
*New* Lifestyle Options
Lifestyle Family Session (in your home) $300
Your Lifestyle Family Session is a more relaxed documentation of everyday living up to 1 hour at your home. Unlike a traditional Family Session, I will not be posing your family to “look and smile at the camera” or bringing props, but instead I’ll be capturing more natural connections between your family members; using what I call “un-posed posing.” Everyday moments and events – from baking, reading, playing, or whatever your family does together – will be documented for your family to treasure forever. Well-behaved family pets are always welcomed in some of these shots!
Also included with your Lifestyle Family Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 20-30 high quality edited photos, with print release.
Lifestyle Newborn Session (in your home) $300
Your Lifestyle Newborn Session is a more relaxed documentation of your new family for up to 1 hour at your home. Unlike a traditional Studio Newborn Session, I will not be posing baby or bringing props, but instead I’ll be capturing more natural connections between you, your partner, siblings, and baby. Everyday moments and events in the early days with baby at home will be documented for your family to treasure forever. Well-behaved family pets are always welcomed in some of these shots!
Also included with your Lifestyle Newborn Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 20-30 high quality edited photos, with print release.
