Newborn Portrait Sessions
$700 weekday, $750 weekend ($200 required for date retainer, balance due at shoot. Includes $500 in print credit.)
Babies are only brand new for such a fleeting time, so sessions are held in the first weeks of life to capture that newborn look. 5 to 7 days old is perfect. Please contact me before your due date so we can put a tentative date on the calendar and confirm right after your little one arrives.
Sessions last from 2 to 3 hours (plus set up and break down) in a toasty warm room of your home with a nice large window for light. I have lots of props I bring along and am happy to also incorporate cute and meaningful things that you have. Your only responsibility is to provide a well-fed baby and I take care of the rest!
The Session Fee includes my time to shoot and process your images plus a $500 print credit. (See Prints & Products for a price list of all the options for finished art.) Generally between 30 and 40 proofs are provided.
Because the session appointments times are so limited, $200 non-refundable retainer is due at the time the session is scheduled, to reserve your date. If the session is rescheduled by Jan (most likely due to weather since we need a bright window) the retainer will apply to the new date. If you cancel the session, for any reason, the retainer will not be returned.
Within 1 week after the session, proofs will be posted in a password protected gallery for viewing and ordering. The gallery will be posted for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks the gallery will be archived and a $100 fee is due if you need to reactivate it for an additional week.
If you need help making your selections, I am happy to assist you by e-mail, phone or in person! I can help you decide how to best display and enjoy your images as art in your home. Creating large wall portraits is the reason for the shoot, after all, and I want you to use and enjoy your pictures!
Completed orders are ready for pickup or shipping to you in approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
E-mail Jan today to schedule your portrait shoot today!
(Sales tax will be added for VA residents. Print credit expires 6 months after the date of the shoot.)
