Newborn | Starting at $500
Your newborn session will be conducted at the Pleasantly Captured Photography studio — because lets face it, you have enough to worry about with a new little one and the last thing on your mind is picking up around the house! Here you will also have access to all of the wonderful props and accessories I have to offer. Your session will include session design consultation at the studio, parent preparation, and parents and sibling are encouraged to participate. The starting price of $500 includes 20 high resolution images, print release and birth announcements (or may be substituted with a 11×14 print). Additional collections and items are available for purchase. To view full collection pricing, please feel free to email me using the contact page.
Best time to schedule? Your little one’s debut is best photographed within 14 days of their birth, while they are still sleepy and mold-able. I highly recommend booking your session while in your second trimester. This ensures plenty of time to plan and your photographer’s availability. Your due date will be marked on my calendar and we will schedule your session once you are home with baby.
How long will the session last? Newborn sessions last approximately 3-4 hours. This gives plenty of time for soothing, feeding, changing in between shots.
Can myself, spouse and/or siblings participate? The answer to that is a resounding YES! There is no additional charge for parents and siblings to participate.
How do I book? To book your newborn session, a $250 non-refundable session fee (which is applied towards your collection purchase) and signed client agreement are needed to secure your session. You may use the contact page or call 910.805.0441 to book your newborn session today!
Maternity | $250
Pregnancy is such an exciting yet fleeting moment! A maternity session is the perfect way to preserve your beautiful baby bump. Your maternity session will be a 90 minute session indoor session at the studio (in Jacksonville, NC) or outdoors at one of the many beautiful locations we have here locally. You will receive 10-15 beautifully retouched images and print release delivered via an online gallery. Before your session we will meet and talk about wardrobe and location to ensure your session is just as your envisioned it. **Maternity clients will receive a $50 credit towards their custom newborn session.**
When should I schedule? Between 30 and 36 weeks is an ideal time to photograph your beautiful baby bump! I recommend booking your maternity session no later than the end of your second trimester to ensure proper time to plan your perfect session.
What should I wear? You can choose from the collection of gowns and accessories from my studio or you are welcome to wear your own special outfit (empire waist dresses are a great option). Before your session we will meet at the studio to talk over the details of your session. At that time you may try on all of the maternity clothing and accessories I have.
Where should I shoot? We can shoot indoors at the studio or explore outdoors. There are great locations to choose from, it just depends on the look that you wish to have. I will travel 40 miles round trip from my studio, outside of a that radius an additional travel fee may apply.
Can my spouse and/or child(ren) participate? Of course they can! I encourage all family members to participate in your session.
Milestone | $250
Your little one will grow up in a blink of an eye and before you know it they are independent and excessively spunky teenagers. Milestone sessions are the perfect way to look back and remember those chubby cheeks and legs, wobbly first steps and their sweet smiles that melt your heart. Your milestone session will include a 60 minute session (90 minutes for cake smashes) with 10-15 beautifully hand retouched images via an online gallery, print release and 3 gift prints. At the studio, you will have full access to accessories, backdrops and props. Weather permitting, I am able to conduct select milestone sessions outdoors. I love to make your photos customized to your child, so let’s incorporate a favorite stuffed animal, color scheme or nursery theme!
When should I schedule? I recommend scheduling your session approximately 6-8 weeks out from your milestone.
How long is the session? The milestone session last approximately 60 minutes. Cake smashes last approximately 90 minutes. I typically take only one session per day, so if your little one is having a hard time having their photo taken, I will be sure to take pauses, even if it goes a little over our slotted session time.
Do you offer props and outfits? I have props and outfits that you may use during your session. Prior to your session we will sit down and talk over your session ideas, pick out items and have your little try them on to be sure they fit.
Can we shoot our session outdoors? Yes, you are welcome to have your milestone session outdoors as long as the weather permits it. However, I strongly recommend having your cake smash sessions in doors.
