Please hover on "Investment & FAQ" and drop down to view session fees and print/package/digital pricing.
Why are newborn sessions more expensive than other children sessions?
1. PROPS. I have specifically
chosen every fabric, outfit, wrap, and hand-made item to create beautiful artwork and to soothe your baby.
2. FLEXIBILITY. I promise ample time slots for clients that schedule prior (at least one month) to baby's arrival. 10-day-olds are ideal for Bambino Sessions.
3. TIME. Bambino Sessions take a minimum of two hours to shoot, 4-6 hours to edit the session.
4. ARTWORK. This is not just a photograph. I am creating a work of art that you will cherish forever. FOREVER!
What does the session fee include?
Time, talent, props, professional equipment and knowledge.
Creativity, patience, a warm studio, an online proof gallery posted within one week of your session, and a social media sneak peek the day of or after.
30-50 images to choose from (prints/packages/digital images are purchased separately).
Am I able to get a disk/USB with ALL the files?
Since each image requires retouching, only individual digital images are for sale.
Do you have discounts?
Yes! I will run specials and discounts on orders from time to time.
During non-busy seasons, there will be mini sessions for children. Please follow SCP on Instagram and Facebook to see the latest.
Is clothing important?
Yes, very! SCP portraits are classic, so clothing should be as well.
Earth tones: blues, browns, creams, grays, burgundies, and pale greens will photograph best.
Make sure there are no bold, distracting patterns or stripes.
*SCP has many options for children's clothing, baby outfits, and some maternity gowns. You are welcome to use these for free!
What if my child doesn't feel well?
Please reschedule your appointment if you or your child has a cough or fever (fever within 24 hours). I need to protect all of my clients from illnesses. I am more than happy to reschedule your session. Healthy children are free to be themselves, and always photograph best!
What is a Mini Session?
Mini Sessions are shorter in TIME (not effort), and usually include a digital image. These sessions are designed to save me time, and you, money! Certain age groups (newborns, and 1-3 years) need more time than 15 minutes, so I do not have minis for them. My goal is always to give you the best images possible, so the rules I have are purposeful.
What about glare on glasses?
Glasses can be difficult...
I like to photograph people without glasses, because their eyes are what I focus on, but if removing your glasses is not an option (if people will not recognize you, of course!), I totally understand. Many of my clients have had their lenses removed (just wearing frames) for the portrait session, and this makes client and photographer happy!
Glass glare is considered extra retouching, starting at $25 per image.
Each card is individually designed for you. All images will be retouched.
