Some people call me the Baby Whisperer. Others question if I am a Baby Sorceress. And some even offer for me to come and live with them to help calm their crying babies. Sorry, folks, I’ve got a family of my own to take care of after I’m finished snuggling your sweet new babe!
I’m Jamie, your personal Baby Whisperer. I’ll use my 12+ years of newborn experience to photograph your sweet new baby in a timeless yet modern style, using neutral props and color tones to enhance the beauty of what you’ve created. Your eyes may water a bit when you see your images. (I won’t tell anyone, I promise!)
There are two types of posed newborn sessions: a Family Newborn Session, and a Simply Swaddled Newborn Session.
Newborn sessions are typically held within the first two to four weeks of life to capture the squishy newness of each baby. Any baby over four weeks will be recommended to a Lifestyle Newborn session.
A Family Newborn Session will focus on creating images of the new family (mom, dad and baby) as well as the squishy, perfectly-posed images of baby alone. Family portraits will be photographed on a backdrop of your choice. Afterwards, the baby will be perfectly posed on approximately four to five different sets.
Family Newborn Sessions will have a completed gallery of 40-45 images to choose from.
A Simply Swaddled Newborn Session is for the baby alone. We will focus on the perfectly posed images on a variety of neutral sets (approximately four to five sets).
Simply Swaddled Newborn galleries will have a completed gallery of 25 fully edited images to choose from.
Posed newborn (Simply Swaddled or Family Newborn) sessions have a session fee + package purchase. The session fee is due to book your due date or secure your session date.
The Simply Swaddled session fee is $150, and the Family Newborn session fee is $200.
Packages will be selected at your Reveal and Ordering appointment, which is scheduled for approximately two weeks after your newborn session. Packages begin at $495.
A Lifestyle Studio Session is for Newborns or a Milestone baby, which is a baby who has aged out of those squishy newborn poses. Candid images of the new family (mom, dad and baby) will be created on the Lifestyle set in the studio. These sessions are less posed and more about the family connection.
Lifestyle Studio Sessions will have a completed gallery of 30-35 beautifully edited images with digital download, and a custom-made, complimentary 5x7 photo book (magazine-style). Lifestyle Studio Sessions are $695 (session fee included in price).
A $100 non-refundable deposit is due to book your session, and the remaining balance is due on the day of your session. There is no additional Reveal and Ordering appointment for a Lifestyle Session.
Sibling add-ons are available for an additional fee.
