These sessions are for any child that is not a newborn. They could be just sitting up by themselves or walking and talking. Children change so much so fast and if you blink they’ve grown an inch. This is a precious time that you want to capture forever.
A $150 booking fee will book your appointment for a regular child session. A cake smash fee is $165. Digital files and products are sold separately. Session includes 4 family members after that there will be an extra fee per person.
You create your own collection by choosing how many digital files you want and what piece of art you want for your home.
The first year flies by! My goal is to capture all of these precious moments in beautiful professional portraits that will mark your baby’s growth while they are toddlers.
Thank you for visiting my page and I look forward to working with you!
Questions? We have the answers…
How old should my child be for a sitter session?
Sitter sessions can be setup at any time, but they are usually between 6-7 months. At that point the baby can sit up unassisted and we don’t take the chance of them toppling over. They are very still for the most part which makes things a lot easier and they are now full of expression. Most babies have tons of smiles at this point and it makes for some very cute photos with some of their first teeth coming in and slobber face from the tons of drooling that’s going on.
Can we do family photos also?
Yes, of course! Any siblings or parents may join the shoot. Ideas for how to style a family session will be sent to you when you book a session to help everyone look good together.
What do I bring for them to wear?
If there is an outfit that you would like to get photos in you can bring that. Our local boutique Barefoot Baby is a wonderful place to check out for beautiful unique outfits. I have a few knitted outfits and bonnets in my studio that can be used also. If they have a favorite toy that you do not mind being in the photo you should bring that as well. It incorporates memories of what they liked at the time and keeps them happy incase they are not interested in the session. For the sitter age kids we try to incorporate a jar of their favorite food and let them feed themselves. It’s messy but a lot of fun.
Will it be in Studio or Outside?
You have the choice of either coming to the studio and getting photos or going to a location that you would like to meet. There is only time for one or the other but we can always setup two appointments if you would like to do both. On location booking fee is $300 in studio is $100.
What should the family wear?
Family members that are going to be in the photos should wear neutral colors with no patterns. Small kids can even go shirtless with basic jeans. We can discuss any ideas that you may have for this session and a what to wear guide will be emailed to you as well to give you some tips on picking out clothes that match for everyone.
Why is the booking fee a separate charge from the products order?
Your booking fee is the cost for your 1 hour in the studio. It gets you access to the entire collection of kids clothes and props. You also get a pre-session phone consultation to go over how you want your photos to look. We also edit your 20-25 proof images before your ordering appointment. Your second appt is where you decide on which digital files you would like to purchase and what art you would like to add to make your custom package.
