The Newborn Session by Katie Baechler A time to document the intimate details: How little fingers wrap around yours, a baby cheek spilling over your shoulder, your careful swaddling, and the oddly cute swirl pattern of the hair.
You’re wanting to or preparing to welcome a sweet baby to your family. Regardless of what stage you’re in, thinking of the possibilities is an exciting time. When you’re booking a newborn session, you’ll want to know a few things.
The Session Day: Lifestyle photography is a time to document a new stage as-is. Thank you for your willingness to welcome me into your home. This allows me the opportunity to photograph your family living naturally. I’ll direct you into natural poses and focus on intimate details.You can feed your baby at any time, take few minutes to swaddle and snuggle, and change diapers as they come. A newborn photography session is meant to be a slow roll and can last anywhere from 1-3 hours. The length will depend on your family and personal comfortability. Please let me know if there’s anything special you’d like to do during our time. Examples may include baby’s first bath, meeting grandparents, etc. This is an exciting time of firsts that should be remembered. To clarify a few misconceptions: Your house doesn’t need a makeover first.Neither partner needs to lose any baby weight. No-one has to hate having their photo taken.The session will feel incredibly natural. As a mother of two, I’m aware of what you may be feeling as you navigate the new (or new again) moments of parenthood. What does the fee include?
The total fee is $600. You’ll receive my time shooting in the local Denver area, creative editing, and an online gallery with all (yes, all!) images available to be downloaded. While all newborn sessions are different, a typical gallery consists of 50-130 images. The image count depends on the temperament of your new baby, additional family members, and more. To highlight: Your total fee includes the digital images. There will not be an additional sales session. Booking details:1. Please contact me right away. We’ll chat again a few months before your due date so that I can make plans for you on my calendar.2. Booking: 25% of the total payment is required to get started. Then, we’ll both anxiously await your due date! You’ll help me stave off my own baby fever. Thank you. 3. After your new baby has arrived, please contact me right away. A newborn photo session is best scheduled within the first ten days. In that time, your sweet baby is still very sleepy and snuggly when we shoot.Scroll up to the top to submit your contact form.
