Because this magical stage of life passes in a blink of an eye, newborn portraits are captured during the first two weeks of life while your little one is still well-fed, sleepy and content. Maureen will keep your due date on file and stay in touch with you as the exciting day approaches making adjustments to fit you in at just the perfect time.
Newborns are captured alone, usually in simple onesies, swaddled in your favorite blanket, or in their baby birthday suit (your choice). We will also take images with up to four siblings and parents.
You will treasure these sweet images!
Newborn session fee is $375 and includes a product minimum of $400
The newborn session fee includes an extra two hours which is usually needed. This session fee is for time & talent only. Prints are purchased separately.
This price is for a photo session anywhere within the Boston area or surrounding suburbs. Please note that travel beyond a 25 mile radius of Boston will be billed separately. Popular products include prints, portrait albums, and canvas art.
Many of my clients opt for the First Year Package which includes a photo session for your newborn and again when your baby is 6 months old and 1 year old.
The younger the baby, the better! Scheduling your newborn session within the first 2 weeks is highly recommended. It's not too early to schedule a newborn session while you're still expecting. Please contact me at that time or as soon as your baby is born & I'll be sure to make myself available.
Maureen’s sessions generally last about 1-2 hours. With her informal and natural style, she prefers working in client’s homes for newborn shoots. Her goal is to capture a series of images that truly reflect the unique personality of your family. Timing for newborns is typically ABC for XYZ reason.
WHAT TO WEAR
The focus of the shoot will be your child, so busy patterns and logos should be avoided. For your newborn, you might have ABC available as options. The rest of the family should wear clothing that isn't stiff or complicated. Solid colors work really well and also textured fabrics like jeans, thick knits and corduroy. Bare feet are always preferred and nothing is cuter than bare baby bellies!
VIEWING YOUR PORTRAITS
Images will be available 2-3 weeks after the shoot. You will be shown approximately 20-30 images from your photo session in an online password protected gallery. Images are viewable for 14 days. All print orders are to be placed during this time. One week gallery extension is $25.
A 50% deposit is required to reserve your appointment. This deposit is non-refundable and is applied towards your session fee. Payments can be mailed or paid online by credit card.
Cancellations are permitted up to 48 hours before the scheduled shoot. Please call ahead so your deposit can be applied towards your next scheduled date.
A great idea for gifts and baby showers! Gift certificates are available in any denomination and can be used towards a session fee, album or prints.
As a thank you for a referral or returning client, you will receive a complimentary 8x10 print from your new session. *This offer not valid for clients returning for their multiple session packages.
A LA CART PRINT PRICING
A la cart prints and portrait collections are available.
The first year package is $1,650 and doesn't include a product minimum
Included with this year-long package are three custom photo sessions which document your child as a newborn, at six months (when baby is able to sit up), and at his or her first birthday. To make this package even more special, a maternity session can be added for an additional $195.
At the end of the first year, you will receive a beautiful 8x8 portrait album highlighting your favorite images from each session - your baby book done for you! Your newborn session includes one hi res 4x6 digital file for you to make your own announcements.
What better way to remember Baby’s First Year than to capture these special milestones in a year of whirlwind changes!
