I take so much pride in what I do, and I know you will love your images from your session. Newborn sessions are my passion, I absolutely love working with all these precious little miracles.
I have photographed hundreds of newborns and love to mold them into sweet, curly, squishy positions safely. I have attended newborn workshops, and had private mentoring with other inspiring newborn photographers so I can perfect my art a little more with each session.
All newborn session prices include my time and artistic style, and use of props. The turnaround time for your images are 1-3 weeks. All of the edited images will be uploaded to an online gallery for you to view, and share with friends and family.
All newborn sessions are Monday -Friday.
Newborn sessions require a $150 non-refundable deposit to book your session, and the remaining balance is due at your session.
All regular sessions require a $100 non-refundable deposit/retainer to hold your session date. IF YOU CANCEL you do NOT get the deposit/retainer back.
(past newborn clients & clients that have used me 3 or more times for FULL SESSIONS get $50.00 off of this session, not good with any other promotions)
This session offers you your session AND the digital download and printing rights to ALL OF THE IMAGES in your gallery. Your gallery will consist of 30-50 of the best images from the session, sometimes more.
Family and child sessions last 45-80 minutes long depending on the little one’s of course. They are taken on location around the Charleston area. These sessions are always a fun session where I have you interact with your children, and play with them and capture that special moment we all love. We walk around different spots for most of these on location sessions. Beach sessions in July, and August are at (sunrise 6:15 am or sunset 8:30 pm). I highly recommend altering your little one’s naps for the later Summer sessions. If your little one is turning one we can do a cake smash at the very end of the session, props for the cake smash are brought in by the parents.
LARGE GROUPS add $20 per person/animal after the first five.
FULL STUDIO NEWBORN SESSION
This is your full length newborn session at my studio in N. Charleston. The studio is an adorable older brick home that is strictly studio for me. I have spent countless hours collecting the finest fabrics, backdrops, hats, and headbands. You don’t need to bring anything to your session as I have an entire room dedicated to my unique style of props, and fabrics. The studio will be dark and cozy, it’s a very charming chic studio that will make you feel right at home. I provide drinks, snacks, and have Netflix, and Apple TV for you to enjoy as I work with your precious one. You can lounge on the couch, prop your feet up, take a nap, and relax. As you can see my style is very neutral colors, tans, creams, whites, grays are my obsession. I want to showcase your newborn, it’s about them not the props. I love to add a sweat handmade hat or dainty little headband to some of you images too, but I do believe less is more. I want to create a timeless look for you now, and to cherish in the upcoming years. With this session we will get several squishy, sweet poses, close ups, and a few “bucket/prop” shots if time allows. I will have the sets ready for you when you get to the studio on your session day.

I will capture timeless images of your little one and this package includes the digital download and printing rights to ALL OF THE IMAGES in your gallery.

I am so excited to offer birth photography this year after so many requests. I will be offering a limited amount of bookings for birth photography in 2017. Since your little one can come at any time I do not accept deposits or payment until services are rendered, as I cannot guarantee I can make it to all births.
If I can make it I need to be notified the moment you are heading to the hospital, as I will have to go right then too! I am there until your little one makes their grand entrance.
