First off, congratulations on your new or soon to be baby! I’m sure you’ve heard it a million times before, but a new baby changes everything. All of a sudden when you hold him or her for the first time it’s as though life has just began. It’s truly the best feeling in the world being a parent. I’ve wanted to be a mom since I was five. I’d always take care of my cousins and pretend they were “my baby.”
This is one of the reason photographing babies is one of my favorites, especially newborns. Now having two kids of my own and seeing how quickly they’ve grown, I can’t express how important it is to capture this special time, capture their “freshness.” Please take a moment and view the slideshow of some of my favorites I’ve photographed through the years. Once you’ve decided Infinity Image & Design is the right fit for you, call the studio to schedule your session.
frequently asked questions
What is your photographic style?
Newborn portrait sessions are mainly posed and are focused on the new sleepy baby and their itty bitty features.
Where will the sessions be taken?
Sessions are scheduled at my studio during the week. Session includes several props and backgrounds for newborn boys and girls.
How do I book a session?
Sessions are booked on Tuesdays and Thursdays for newborn sessions but other arrangements can be made if that doesn’t work for you. Please contact the studio to book your customized consultation so I can be sure to provide you with the best experience possible. A deposit of $125 is required at your consultation in order to reserve your desired appointment. This will be subtracted from the total cost of your package. Please note newborns are scheduled between 4 to 14 days old only, so it’s very important to keep your scheduled session.
How can I prepare for a photo session?
During your consultation, I will discuss how to prepare for your newborn session, and answers to other frequently asked questions. These sessions focus on the baby being naked or bundled up in one of my baby wraps or my newborn outfits specifically made for newborn portraiture. You can bring an outfit or two if you’d like, but the majority of newborn baby clothes don’t fit properly so they don’t photograph very well. I am in constant contact with you every step of the way and am available during the week to answer questions or give you guidance throughout your portrait journey should you have further questions.
How much should I expect to invest?
Infinity Image’s packages are $325-$425. This includes your consultation, the newborn session, the creative processing of your images and your portrait viewing. Several additional items such as greeting cards, photo gifts, photo jewelry and more are available for displaying your beautiful portraits. As always I offer easy payment plans to help my clients afford professional portraits.
Will the pictures be in black and white or color?
Every image is shot in color. During post processing, I add filters to the images I feel need to be in black and white, sepia, etc. If you wish to have all your images in black and white or sepia, I can do so. However, if I’ve turned an image black and white this is typically because I shot the image specifically for this so it won’t be offered in color.
What happens after the pictures are taken?
After your session I will discuss available dates for your viewing session. This is typically held the following week after your pictures are taken at a local coffee shop. You will be presented with artistic suggestions for your images. The entire process is catered to you, making your experience an easy and pleasant one.
As always, I’m here every step of the way to answer any questions you might have about the session, clothing suggestions and more. I do feature articles on the blog that help to answer general questions but feel free to call the studio if you need further help.
Infinity Image offers a several digital options, including a semi-retouched CD of your full session or fully retouched digital files. If you’d like professionally printed images of your session, you can add them onto one of the digital packages. Currently there is no mark up for prints, you pay what we pay! For example, enjoy professional lab quality prints for as little as $1.25 for a 5×7 and 8×10 are just slightly more! You can inquire about other sizes as well as canvas prints, etc. at your viewing. If you have any questions or need something that isn’t listed, please use the contact page to send an email, or call/text the number listed in the upper right corner.
