Baby Photography Sessions

 

Milestone sessions

Baby sessions usually take place in a studio space located in West Edmonton, however, if you prefer I can also photograph at your home or outside.

To make documenting baby’s first year as easy as possible, I offer baby plan packages of two or three sessions held at pre-booked intervals. The baby plans can also include baby albums to display your favorite photos from the year.

Sessions include two backdrop setups with coordinating props. Cake smash decor can be included upon request.

Baby Photography Details

 

When should I book?

A baby plan is generally booked around the time of baby’s newborn session, although it can be booked anytime during the first year. If you book within 2 weeks of your newborn photography session, you will receive a complimentary set of 24 photo birth announcements, which is a 100 dollar value.

What age is the best for a baby photography session?

If you are booking a single session, I recommend waiting until baby is able to sit independently, but is not yet crawling. This is typically between 6-8 months of age. For baby plans, we take photographs regularly throughout the first year to capture all of baby’s stages. These include:

 

4 Months – All Smiles

Baby’s can’t sit yet, but we do lots of tummy time during these sessions. Your baby will be smiling and interacting and the gallery will showcase all of the many expressions that baby has mastered during her first few months of life.

6-8 Months – The Sitter Session

When baby is 6-8 months, he will be sitting, or tripoding (where he can sit by leaning forward using his hands as another support. Many will also be able to support themselves on all fours in a crawling position. This is one of my favorites for taking photos since most babies at this age are very friendly, and are happy to be in front of the camera.

12 Months – Happy Birthday

This final session is all about that first birthday. You are welcome to bring in a cake to smash, but I also have lots of other options to show off this big milestone.

Often baby’s at this age are a bit shy, so it take awhile to warm up. Be prepared for this session to take a little longer than the others so we can wait for baby to feel comfortable in this new setting.

How long will I have to wait to receive my photos?

All online galleries are complete within 2-3 weeks of the session, with prints and canvases ready for pick up in 2-3 weeks. Items can also be shipped directly to you for a minimal cost.

Albums generally take around 4-8 weeks to be completed.

How long do sessions last?

Baby sessions are kept short, around 30-40 minutes. We will try to schedule the session around nap times so baby will be awake and happy during this time.

Where do baby photography sessions take place?

Usually the sessions will take place in a studio in West Edmonton or in your home. Outdoor sessions can be an option during warmer months, weather permitting. I have a number of locations I like to shoot in, but I’m open to suggestions as well.

Do you supply props and outfits?

I supply props, but leave it up to you to bring outfits you love. I suggest a maximum of three outfits (baby’s don’t like being changed over and over). Anything from a plain white onsie to a special outfit from a grandparent to whatever baby usually wears can make for a nice image.

Who can attend the baby photography sessions?

Baby sessions are all about baby, so I usually ask that we keep the number of extra bodies to a minimum. We want baby to focus on me and the camera. If you would like to include siblings or family shots, please let me know ahead of time who to expect so I can be prepared. There is a $100 charge, which also adds and extra 5 images.

Baby Photography Album EdmontonWhat does the baby’s first year album look like?

Baby Photography AlbumThe baby album is a 20 page album. I custom design each one to showcase images from each session during the first year. The standard size is 9.5″x9.5″, but it can be upgraded to a large 12″x12″ for the ultimate show piece. Album covers feature an image on the front and are wrapped with stunning vegan leather in your choice of colour. The albums also come with a case with a magnetic plexi glass lid, allowing the album to be displayed on a shelf or coffee table.

If you would like to order duplicate copies for grandparents etc., they are available at a 30% discount if ordered at the same time as the main album.

How do I book?

Fill in the form below to get started. I will send you a contract via email, which you can sign electronically. A 25% retainer is required to book your session. This can be paid using credit card, PayPal or email money transfer. The remaining cost of your session will be due by the session day.
