Maternity & Newborn sessions have become so important to Seth & I. Having children of our own has shown us how fast time flies from this stage of life. It's so important to capture those moments as your life changes and you become parents.
I, Mary, handle the maternity, newborn, & baby pictures for S.M|P. Our newborn session includes either a mini maternity session or a 6 month baby session. The maternity session is typically done around 32-35 weeks and we would prefer if both parents were present, but not required. We will wander around and take some belly pictures and if you want to bring a couple props, that's ok. Please don't bring me a whole pinterest board of prop photos. I want to mostly capture your excitement and joy rather than the "stuff". :)
Newborn photos are done in your home within a few weeks of bringing your bundle home from the hospital. I take a lifestyle approach to the photos so while I will take a few of the baby alone, I will also pose each parent with the child and some of everyone together. (See samples below) I do not bring props, hang baby from a net, prop up baby in a bucket or a helmet or put baby in dad's pants pocket. Those are studio photographer pictures and if that's what you want, I can recommend a couple really good ones.
The session is $450 total- a $50 non-refundable deposit to hold a spot and the remainder due at the session. The deposit goes into our family fund to assist with costs associated with family planning for our clients. Read more about it here.
So check out the photos below as a sample or you can view more on our blog and Facebook. We'd love to work with you as you welcome a new baby into your family! Send me a line on the contact form and we can talk through more details!
