Step one: choose your collection

Pricing for the First Year Collections includes three lifestyle sessions (usually scheduled in the first two weeks after birth, around six months, and around 1 year) designed to help you document the growth of both your baby and your family through the major milestones of that huge first year. Along with an incredible set of images, you’ll enjoy priority scheduling, special pricing on print products, guidance on how best to archive your images, and the comfort of knowing that you’ve got one less thing on that mile-long planning checklist to worry about.

step two: put your due date on my calendar

 

Once you know which collection best suits your needs, the next step is to get your due date on the calendar. You can do that by calling or emailing me with your information, after which the booking process is quick, easy, and 100% online. It's best to get in touch as early as possible... I don't book more than four newborns in a given month, so that I can always be sure to have the scheduling flexibility necessary to work your session in during the first two weeks of your baby's life. Ready?


 

step three: plan to make the most of your beautiful new photos

 

What you're going to do with your images is perhaps the most important thing to consider when you're planning for photos of your newest family member... and it's all too easy to put on back burner once the baby has arrived. I'm a firm believer in the importance of printing your photos, whether you have me do it or someone else, and although each collection starts with digital files, I'm committed to helping you get your images off of the computer and into your home where you can enjoy them every day. To that end, two of the collections include books, and all of the collections give you special pricing on the high-quality print options offered through my studio (described below). In addition, every First Year Session Collection comes with a detailed guide to the best printing services, product options, and storage practices for your digital files. 

PROFESSIONAL PRINTS

Professional prints are made in a lab using luster-finish photo paper. These prints are great for small gifts and scrapbooking. They come unmatted & unframed, and should be transferred into and stored in an album, frame, or archival storage box to prevent damage or deterioration.

4x6 / $20

5x7 / $25

8x10 / $30

11x14 / $35

 

handmade FINE ART PRINTS

Fine art prints are hand made on archival matte paper, signed and dated by the artist on the reverse, then matted in 100% cotton rag mat. Fine art prints are perfect for framing and hanging on the wall or giving as a special gift. Custom framing is available.

4x6 / $55 (matted to 8x10) / $200 (framed)

5x7 / $60 (matted to 8x10) / $200 (framed)

6x9 / $70 (matted to 11x14) / $250 (framed)

8x10 / $80 (matted to 11x14) / $275 (framed)

11x14 / $110 (matted to 16x20) / $300 (framed)

16x20 / $165 (matted to 20x24) / $350 (framed)

CUSTOM SESSION ALBUMS

Custom Session Albums are the ultimate way to archive your images, boasting deep matte photographic paper adhered to a substantial 1/16in rigid pages. Your choice of several high-quality linens or leathers for the cover can be personalized with either a cameo opening or up to three lines of debossed text. The layout is completely customizable and can include an unlimited number of images.

10 spreads (20 pages) are included. Additional spreads (2 pages per spread) can be added for $75 each.

8x8" / $850

10x10" / $1050

12x12" / $1250

 

SIMPLE SESSION BOOKS

Simple Session Books are the Custom Session Albums' little sister. They share high-quality binding and photographic printing, but the pages are thinner (1/32in rather than 1/16in), the paper is luster-finish rather than deep matte, and - most notably - the design is simpler: you choose twenty images and they are printed one to a page. Covers come in your choice of several beautiful linen colors and your choice of debossed text.

10 spreads (20 pages) are included. Additional spreads (1 spread = 2 pages) can be added for $50 each.

8x8" / $550

10x10" / $750
