Are you expecting Twins? Multiples? WOW! Congratulations! Packages start at $499. Please contact Kristin for more information.
Newborn Portraits are recommended to take place within the 1st month of your baby's arrival (the first 14 days are the most ideal time for newborn portraits but Kristin will take babies up to 6 weeks of age). All sessions consist of a variety of beanbag poses and bucket/Prop shots. Kristin will provide everything you will need for the session, so all you need to do is bring your baby on a full tummy and Kristin will go to work! Mom and Dad can sit back and relax while watching their adorable little one model for their very first photo shoot!
*Please note, if your baby has to spend time in the NICU for any reason, the timeframe listed above can absolutely vary. I have done babies up to 3 months old*
Have you thought about how you plan to display your photos? Kristin Ann Photography offers high quality fine art prints, gorgeous gallery wraps, elegant keepsake photo albums, wood art, and more for a spectacular presentation of your most beautiful memories. Please contact Kristin to set up an informational meeting to discuss all product offerings and pricing options. Samples will be provided in studio for your convenience.
DEPOSIT: A $25 non-refundable deposit is due at booking in order to secure your date and time. The deposit will be applied to the overall package price. All final balances are due the day of your scheduled shoot. Please be aware, we will not reserve your date until the $25 deposit is paid. Thank you for understanding & cooperation. Also, due to the uncertainty of when babies arrive, I only book a set number of Newborn Due Dates per month, so it is recommended you book as soon as possible. Thank you for cooperation and understanding.
PA SALES TAX: All Portrait Packages and Product Sales are subject to 6% PA State Sales Tax. Sales Tax is NOT included in the Session Fee.
SCHEDULING: Newborn sessions are taken best between 5-14 days old when your baby is very sleepy and flexible. Having your newborn session done within this time frame will allow me to get those adorable sleepy posed shots of your baby! With that being said, you can absolutely schedule a newborn session after this time frame, but it may be a little harder to capture those perfectly posed shots! *I would recommend that you contact me to set up your newborn session within the beginning of your 3rd trimester or earlier :) All Newborn sessions will be scheduled Monday - Friday after the baby has been discharged from the Hospital. If a weekend appointment is required, an additional $100 fee will apply. Please be aware that I will need to know if a weekend appointment is required before booking. Thank you for your cooperation & understanding.
PRE-SESSION CONSULT: All newborn sessions are tailored specifically to you and your baby, and include a pre-session consultation via Email (or if requested, over the phone). All clients are asked to complete a Newborn Questionnaire to help Kristin prepare for the session. The questionnaire will help guide the style, colors, and props needed for the shoot. During this time, i will also discuss wardrobe recommendations for the family and sibling shots (if applicable). Once your session is booked, you will receive a Newborn Guide with plenty of tips on how to prepare for your baby s first photo shoot!
POST-SESSION: After the session takes place, Kristin will upload all proofs from the shoot to a private online gallery, where clients will get to choose their favorite images from the session. Proofing galleries are posted within the first week of the clients session date. Clients are asked to Select their favorite photos from the session within the first two weeks of the gallery being posted. This will help Kristin stay up to date on editing and get images back to clients within a timely manner. Turnaround time is approximately 10-14 business days. After the images have been professionally edited, the client will receive a link to download the digital images from the final online gallery.
If you would prefer to receive a hard copy of the images, Clients can purchase a USB Drive of the images for an additional $25 fee. Please note, proofs are NOT included in the package. If you would like to purchase additional edited images that exceed the package limit, clients may do so for an additional $20/per image. If clients would like to purchase a copy of the unedited proofs, they may do so for $10/per image.
PROFESSIONAL EDITING: As a Photographer and Artist, I take pride in artistically creating images and memories that Parents will cherish forever. I use State of the Art high, end quality studio lighting equipment to produce sharp images. I carefully hand edit each image with professional editing software, which is the main reason I only offer a limited number of edited images per package. I take pride in my unique editing style and only book a limited number of clients per month so I can provide each gallery its own personal touch!
All Newborn packages include up to 5 traditional black and white images in the final image gallery.
PROPS: Clients will have full access to use all high-quality newborn props offered by Kristin Ann Photography. If you are looking for something specific, please ask Kristin ahead of time before making any purchases elsewhere. You may also set aside any special props you would like to include in your photos, such as special blanket or other items that have special meaning to your family. It is recommended that you use very simple and classic props. Feel free to discuss all props/photo shoot ideas with Kristin during the pre-session consult.
