Get precious, beautiful images of your new baby in my Cochrane Alberta newborn studio. Newborn photography is done in the first two weeks of the baby’s life while they are still sleepy and ‘squishy’. Book early to guarantee a space in my schedule and allow me to order blankets/props/outfits in time for baby’s arrival. Unfortunately last-minute requests, particularly for babies older than 14 days, often cannot be accommodated, so please book early.
Your newborn baby will be artfully posed on blankets and props, capturing all that tiny baby cuteness! Parent and sibling photos may also be included. Session time is up to three hours. I require 4 weeks notice and a completed questionnaire to plan your session and order special items.
Newborn sessions start $450 for a three hour session which can include baby, parents and siblings, with a $300 order credit to put towards your order. You may order digital files or print products once your proofs have been prepared.
Mini sessions / Themed sessions Outdoor garden sessions
Mini sessions start at $250 for a one hour session, with a $150 order credit to put towards your order. This session has limited setups and are for baby only – no parents or sibling photos. Awake babies will be wrapped. You may order digital files or print products once your proofs have been prepared.
A themed session is a single setup with a specialty art theme (eg Harry Potter, Old Barn, Vintage Garden, Teddy Bears, Forest theme hanging baby). These setups take a longer to prepare and longer to shoot, so are not generally available in regular newborn sessions. A simplified version of them can be sometimes done in a regular newborn session if we aren’t doing siblings and parents, but for the full themed experience it’s better as a separate session. The goal is not a lot of photos, but one really great photo! So you will probably want to spend your order credit on wall art and prints rather than a digital collection. These sessions require ample notice and if you have something special in mind that I don’t have in the studio, you may need to acquire some of the prop items yourself.
* Outdoor sessions are held in my garden June – August and are weather dependant.
Photographers choice sessions / model calls
Often I have specific things I’d like to shoot that clients might not think of or choose normally, or there just isn’t time to do them in the normal newborn sessions. These sessions are one setup and may involve themes, composite setups (eg. hanging shots) or whatever artistic fancy I come up with! These sessions are $100, and this is put all towards your order. You may order digital files or print products once your proofs have been prepared.
