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. Unfortunately last-minute requests, particularly for babies older than 14 days, often cannot be accommodated, so please book early. One hour sessions using existing studio items can be done with 72 hours notice.
For all studio sessions, you will be shown a proofing gallery online to choose which photos you would like to purchase. The selected images will then be fully edited and retouched. Digital files are provided in JPG format only (files are approximately 16MP which allows for printing at large sizes). Prints and wall art are ordered from professional photo labs to ensure true colours and longevity.
Due to COVID-19, I am currently offering only one hour sessions as listed below. Session fees are being waived until further notice, saving you money!
Mini sessions are up to one hour in studio, and your $150 booking fee is put entirely towards your order. This session has limited setups and are for baby only – no parents or sibling photos. Awake babies will be wrapped. There is no time for feeding or diaper changes during this session, so please feed baby before you arrive and put on a clean diaper (baby will have a diaper on throughout the session). 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 longer to set up and can take longer to shoot, so they are done as a standalone session. The goal is not a lot of photos, but one really great photo! 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. Expect the session to take 30-60 minutes, but it may take less time if baby is very co-operative.
Themed sessions are $150, and this is all put towards your order.
Outdoor garden sessions
Short outdoor sessions are held in my garden June – August and are weather-dependant. Note that flowers in the garden attract bees and other insects, but I have never been stung in the garden. If you have a nice garden you would like to shoot in instead, that is possible too!
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.
Current model calls
If you’d like to participate in one of these sessions please get in touch with me.
Studio maternity sessions include photos in a gown or two (or your own outfit) plus photos with your partner if desired. These sessions start $450 with a $300 order credit to put towards your order.
