Newborn Session Experience and Investment


Newborn Session Experience and Investment
Newborn sessions are done best in the first 5-12 days after birth to ensure those squishy and sleepy poses. As soon as you book, a welcome guide is sent to you which includes lots of helpful tips and information for a successful newborn session.

In the meantime we will chat on the phone or meet in person and discuss the available props, your vision, favorite colors, style of your baby’s nursery room, etc. Based on our discussions, 3-5 prop set ups are prepared before the session.

The session takes approximately 3 hours at Melodi Photography home-studio. On session day, all you need to do is to show up and enjoy the experience. Once your family portraits are done, you can relax, enjoy some complimentary snacks/drinks, use the wi-fi or take a nap as I take the precious photos of your baby.

If your baby is super sleepy during our time together, I’d keep using many more prop set-ups :)

After the session, I will pick and edit the best photos (usually 20-30 photos) from the session. 7-10 days after the session we will get together for a Portrait Reveal and Order appointment where you will see your photos and decide if you’d like to purchase some high-resolution digital images and/or print products.

In that appointment we will review several sample print products and I will help you select the best photos for your album and/or design a wall art grouping for your home.

The session fee is $250 ( plus California sales tax of 7.25 %) and it’s due when booking. That fee covers my time and talent only. Print products and digital images are purchased separately. Please click here to get info about the pricing of high-resolution digital images and print products!
