Oh mama, I’ve been there and I feel you. The love in your heart that is so big for your new little one that you just can not put it into words. You want to hold on to every precious detail as time has somehow slowed down and sped up all at the same time. My newborn sessions focus on this giant love and capturing every feature of your newest addition . There will be lots of loving on baby with a little direction from me. I want to document real moments as they happen with your new little family. I will get some posed photos of just the baby as well as sibling photos and family photos. Newborn sessions can be held in the comfort of your home or at the studio. I will bring everything needed for the shoot and you can just relax and enjoy the time. Newborn sessions may take up to 4 hours as we will be on baby’s schedule and we want him / her to be happy. We will give them time to feed, be changed, cry, be cuddled, etc. Newborn sessions are typically held mid-morning for the best indoor light.

Newborn Session Pricing

The price of every session includes:

  • A detailed clothing guide and access to my styling service

  • Access to all of my newborn wraps, outfits, headbands and props

  • A pre-shoot consultation to plan your ideal newborn session

  • Hand editing of each image in your gallery

  • A private appointment (3 weeks after the session) to view your photos and place your heirloom print and product order.

newborn session: $325

A two to four hour portrait session to take place in the studio or in your home. Images in the form of prints, albums, wall art and digitals are sold separately from the session fee. There is a $800 minimum product order for the one hour session. This helps me limit the number of sessions I book so I can focus on creating a wonderful experience and beautiful pieces of art. Please contact Valerie to learn more about image pricing.

100% recommend Valerie! She showed up at our house with all of her props which made everything so easy on us for our newborn session. She did great with our 6 day old baby girl and was so patient when we needed to pause for a diaper change or feeding. Most importantly, our photos turned out AMAZING!!
