Newborn Photography Investment

Newborn Sessions in my Millbury Studio

Your newborn photo session should take place during the first 12 days of your baby's life, but it's never too soon to book your session with us. Our schedule fills up very quickly, so it's always best to book your session before your baby is born. We do photograph newborns who are older than 12 days, too, but your session may be a little different than our traditional newborn session. Please give us a call to discuss.

Classic Newborn Session Fee is $150 and includes: 

  • Up to 2 hour studio session

  • 2 colored different backdrops and 2 props

  • Portraits with parent(s) and/or sibling(s)

  • 30+ image gallery from which to choose your favorites for purchase

  • Pre-session planning via phone or email

  • Ordering Consultation appointment in-studio

  • Featured blog post of purchased images to share with friends and family

  • Prints, digital files, and products are not included in your session fee and can be chosen at your ordering consultation
