You are here because you get the sense that this newborn stage is going to be one of those biggest experiences of your life, a big experience that can pass by so quickly. From the moment your baby is born, they will be constantly changing so fast – hour to hour, day to day. A Fresh 48 session takes place in the birth center or at home in the immediate postpartum and up to 48 hours after, and captures those first milestones: herbal bath, breastfeeding, meeting siblings, partner's first diaper change, or simply just gazing at your fresh new babe.
Fresh Baby stories start at $750 and up.
Laughter, smiles, tears, strength...you and your partner lived through it all at birth and then comes the after; it's you, this baby, and your new family. Now what? You wouldn't trust just anyone to be the keeper of these memories, this is where I come in! Meg, official postpartum storyteller and baby cheerleader (and oogler, babies are always squeezing at my ovaries!). I will join you and your family in the first month of life, either in-home or outdoors, and explore your new normal.
Newborn stories start at $600 and up.
When should I book my newborn session?
The sooner the better. I limit the number of arrival dates I take per month for maternity, birth, and newborns. If you know that I am the photographer for you, it is best to secure your spot as early as possible.
How do I book without knowing my session date?
Your "guess date" will be your session date so that we can be sure that you are on my calendar for that month. Once you book your newborn session I’ll send you a detailed email with all the information you need to know including scheduling once the baby is here, what you can expect from your session, how to prep yourself and your baby and other helpful insights and tips.
How soon should I have my newborn session after giving birth?
Fresh 48s: I am on-call just like for a birth. You can call me in for newborn photos right after you have your baby, or get some rest (yes, get that nap in!), text me, and we'll figure out a time that works best.
Lifestyle: Email or text me (because I looooove getting fresh baby announcements!) after you have gone home and I will send you my booking calendar to get you scheduled in that first month of life.
How long will my newborn session take?
I will come visit for 1.5-2 hours. There will be pausing to allow times for feeding and changing. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable and the pace of our session will be determined by the baby.
My baby is already born, am I too late to schedule a Newborn Session?
Not at all! Like my mom says, it never hurts to ask. As long as I have an opening in my calendar, I am happy to fit your family in.
Do you offer a Baby’s First Year plan?
Yes! My "Watch Me Grow!" package includes newborn, 6 months, and 1 year sessions. Fill out my contact form for pricing info..
How does payment work?
There is a 30% deposit due at booking to save your session date in my calendar, and the package balance is due on the day of your newborn session.
When will I get to see our pictures from a session?
Your carefully edited images from your session will be presented in a private online gallery approximately 3 weeks after your session date. From there you will be able to download, share with family/friends, and purchase prints and a story book.
