First Glimpse: Fresh 48 (in home or at hospital) $275
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 one 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 30-40 high quality edited photos, with print release.
Full Newborn Session (with parents & siblings) $395
You can feel confident entrusting your delicate newborn in my capable and experienced hands, posing and settling your beloved babe. I am mindful of baby’s safety, and as a mom, you can be rest assured that I provide proper care of your little squish. I use a combination of artificial and natural light to create a warm, soft and pure quality. I offer a large selection of backdrops, props, baskets, blankets, faux furs, wraps, hand-made outfits, hats and accessories to customize your session in a variety of colours and styles.
Your Newbie Session includes up to 3-4 hours in my cozy and comfortable home studio on St. Joseph Island (allowing time for feeding, changing, and settling baby into a sweet slumber). These shots include parent, siblings, and newborn set ups. Also included with your Newbie Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 30-40+ high quality edited photos, with print release.
NewBORN Investment Options
Lifestyle Newborn Session (in your home) $295
Your Lifestyle Newborn Session is a more relaxed documentation of your new family for up to 2 hours 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 high quality edited photos, with print release.
Mini Newborn Session (Newborn Only) $295
Captures of just your sweet newborn. You will have up to approximately 2 hours of photography in my home studio on St. Joseph Island, with baby awake or asleep. This session includes access to my unlimited supply of props, wraps, hats & accessories. Also included with your Newbie Session Investment is a customized digital download of approximately 15-20+ high quality edited photos, with print release.
Your Birth Story $795
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).
