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. 7 to 10 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 3-4 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 a special item that you have. Your only responsibility is to provide a baby with a full tummy 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! I also offer custom framing consultations in your home so your images arrive ready to hang. As well as baby albums and announcements.
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.)
