It's never too early to schedule your newborn session!
When you book your session, Your date will tentatively be on the calendar for the closest opening after baby's due date. If you deliver early or late, we can adjust. It is very important to have your newborn session within 2 weeks of baby's birth. (barring special circumstances, NICU or Premature)
After delivery an exact appointment date and time is confirmed.
Within 3 days from your session a photo gallery is posted of approximately 20-25 images depending on your session choice. Parents select their favorites and the files are polished for sharing and printing with full copy release. If families want additional images then what's included in your package, they are also available at an additional fee per polished file of $50.
To secure your session, a $100 deposit is taken and the balance is due at your session time.
What to expect...
Your session will take place in our Baby Cottage studio in Erie Pa 16509
We like to allow plenty of time for feeding and cuddling during your session, so plan to be at your session between 2 - 3 hours. Throughout this time you may get hungry so we recommend bringing a snack/drink with you. We have plenty of props for you to choose from and like to involve you in the styling of the session.
Your session will include a couple of scene changes. It will include pictures with Mom and Dad. *pictures will also include sibling if the sibling package has been requested.
Families choosing a sibling in the pictures- These are usually done first, and for younger children, please plan to have a parent or someone to attend to supervise or take the child(ren) under the age of 5 after their part is done. The session can be long for younger children and the best experience is our ultimate goal.
Wear cool and comfortable clothing, as the studio will be nice and warm. Neutral colors and tones always photograph well. Please avoid logos and patterns on shirts. And just in case there are any small accidents, bringing an extra set of clothes is always a good idea.
