Pricing for Newborn Sessions

All newborn portrait sessions take place in the Santa Ana studio. The session prices listed do not include any products such as canvases, prints or digital images.  A product package will be created at your in-person review session when you view the final images.  Session fees are for the time it takes to create the photos during your session, photographer expertise in styling and posing, and all use of materials such as props, wraps, headbands and other items used during the session.

Pricing for Newborn Sessions

Newborn sessions in studio are $300.  Home sessions are offered for an additional fee.  Session retainer fees are collected along with an agreement in order to save time for you on our schedule.  Because births can happen at any time, there is no firm date of your newborn photo session.  Once baby has arrived, then contact Jennifer to coordinate dates and times for your newborn photography session.

How booking happens…

Before Booking

Contact us for detailed information about the session experience, and we will give you a call.   This call is short, but important for providing you with the best experience.  We want to get to know you and your family and learn what makes this baby special so that unique photos can be created.  After discussing your goals, if we are a good fit, you will be sent an agreement.

Planning Consult & Newborn Photo Session

A pre-session consult is offered for every client in the photographer’s studio.  This allows us to get to know each other more before coming in with your brand new babe.  There are a lot of details discussed like color palettes, themes, and props.  All the choices during the consult are noted by Jennifer and prepared for your session before you arrive for photos.

On the day of the session, simply arrive on time and follow Jennifer’s guidelines on how to get the best photos and setups out of your scheduled session time.  A typical full newborn session is 3 hours with many changes in set and feedings in between.  Once the session is complete, Jennifer will choose the best images and they will be hand edited.  Everything up to this point is covered by the cost of the session fee.

In-person Review Session & Product Ordering

Upon completion of editing, Jennifer invites your family back for an in-person ordering session.  At this meeting you will look at the photos for the first time in a slideshow set to music.  From there, individual photos can be reviewed and products purchased.  Jennifer will coordinate colors and styles you may have for your home or nursery room with your purchases.  Canvases can be ordered and announcements given a preliminary design.  Payment for the products will be taken at the time your order is placed.

Final proofs of any designed items are emailed for your approval.   After the final designed artwork pieces or announcements are signed off an finalized, Jennifer will place the order with her artwork suppliers.  The orders are commonly shipped to her for a final quality inspection before you pick them up.  The session is complete, the clients have their product, and sharing of these amazing images begins with family and friends.
