Maternity,Newborn, & Fresh 48 Sessions

Maternity & Newborn Sessions

We offer Maternity, Newborn, and Fresh 48 sessions, which can all be purchased individually, or in various bundles.  Maternity and Newborn sessions both include:

~A 2-3 hour session at your home or location of your choice within 30 mile radius of Springfield (if you don't have a location in mind, we're happy to provide suggestions!)

~Unlimited wardrobe changes

~Private online galleries of at least 30 images, available within 3 weeks of the session

~All images can be downloaded directly from gallery

~A la carte prints available for purchase through the online gallery

~A CD or flashdrive with all images from the session is available for $25

For maternity sessions, outdoor shoots are encouraged, and will generally take place either in the morning or in the late afternoon/evening.  Indoor shoots will take place at your home, and will be done as a "lifestyle" session (uses areas of your house as a setting rather than a studio backdrop). I suggest trying to schedule your maternity session during your third trimester, but not so close to your due date that if baby comes early you'll miss out on getting those memories with your maternity session. Generally around 34-36 weeks is ideal. 

Newborn sessions will focus entirely on "lifestyle" photography, meaning there will be no studio-style backdrop; instead, we try to catch a slice of this precious time in your lives by shooting in and around your home.  In order to get that true squishy newborn look, we suggest scheduling your shoot within the first 12 days after delivery. Additional products, such as birth announcements, photo albums, and canvases are available at additional cost. 

Fresh 48 Sessions:

Fresh 48 Sessions are for families who want to remember the first few hours of their newborn's life, but would prefer not to have their entire labor or birth photographed.  Fresh 48 sessions are held within 24-48 hours after the birth during daylight hours and take place at the hospital, birthing center, or home; wherever your birth took place.  These are not traditional newborn sessions; there will be no posing or wardrobe changes. This is just me capturing those precious first moments & details of your baby's life; fingers, toes, belly buttons, baby yawns, quiet moments with your baby, or family meeting baby for the first time. Whatever is happening in those early moments is what you will see. Fresh 48 sessions include: 

~A 60-90 minute session at your hospital, birth center, or home

~Unposed moments, in a mix of black and white and soft color photographs

~Private online galleries of at least 30 images, available within 3 weeks of the session

~Same-day social media sneak peek to share with your family and friends

~All images can be downloaded directly from gallery

~A la carte prints available for purchase through the online gallery

~A CD or flashdrive with all images from the session is available for $25

SESSION, DEPOSIT, AND CANCELLATION POLICIES
Half of the payment is due at time of booking; the other half is due at the time of your session. Due to the on-call nature of Fresh 48 sessions, most will take place in mid- to late afternoon, but always during daylight hours.  In the event of a cancellation on the part of the clients, a 75% refund will be given (exceptions may be made based on situation). In the unlikely event of a cancellation on the part of the photographer, a 100% refund will be given.
