The session fee covers Christy’s time and talent to create heirloom imagery of your new baby. It includes the use of her large collection of fabrics and props, most of which she knits herself. The session fee is payable in advance to reserve your spot and is non-refundable. A signed contract is also required at the time of booking. No digital or printed products are included in the session fee. Products start at $150 and collections start at $790.
The best way to capture your new family is to start before baby is born. I offer maternity sessions in studio or in outdoor locations. Session fee is included.
Babies change more during the first year than any other time. Capture those fleeting milestones with a sitting session or first birthday. Sessions are in studio only. Session fee is included.
You can choose to document the entire experience, belly to birthday, with a Baby Plan. 4 Discounted sessions when booked together.
If you choose to have sibling portraits or portraits as a family, we will do those first. Once those are completed, I pose baby on their own using a variety of blankets, wraps and props.
While at the session, you’re able to see and touch all of the acrylic wall art, fine art albums, and wooden prints that are available so you can see your newborn story forever.
Waiting to view your photos can seem like forever, but rapid turnaround time is something I pride myself on. You will receive your proofing gallery within 48 hours of your session. From this proofing gallery, you choose the portraits you wish to add to your collection. The editing process on these chosen images will take about 1-2 weeks. Each image gets the time and attention they need in order to make them perfect for you.
You’ve officially reserved your due date and now we wait for baby to arrive. Don’t worry, if baby comes early, just email and we’ll adjust the date. I schedule sessions within the first 21 days after birth since babies are more curled up and sleep easily when being moved around.
Having a newborn is stressful enough so I aim to make your studio session relaxed. A Newborn portrait session will last between 2-3 hours. The time passes quickly and allows for any necessary breaks for cuddling, soothing, and feeding. After all, baby’s needs are our priority. I will take as much time as needed for your baby to fall into the perfect sleep, where they allow me to pose them and create the most adorable images.
