Fresh 48/Hospital Photos: This session is a 45 minute in hospital session within the first 48 hours after baby's birth; also know as Fresh 48.  The photographer would come to your hospital after the baby is born to capture some of your family’s firsts. This session is flexibly schedule so you can plan the time that we are coming so you can be ready and have anyone you would like there to be a part of the photos.

Mini Newborn Session: This session is a 1.5-hour in studio newborn session as well focused only on the baby.  This session only allows for the baby to be in the photos and not for any other people or family members. This session is best to be done with-in the first 2 weeks after baby is born.

Lifestyle Newborn Session: This session is a 2.5-hour in home photo session. This allows for more intimate moments of the family interacting with the baby. Other people are able to be in these photos.  This session does not include backdrops, props, or our outfits. Since this session is a little more relaxed this doesn't really have a time frame.

Announcement Mini Session: This session is a 30 minutes session for those who are pregnant and are looking to either announce that they are pregnant or announce what the gender of their little bundle will be. This is not a session that can be bought separately and has to be purchased with a maternity (main) session or a newborn session.
