I know what you're thinking - "how much is this gonna cost me?" And rightfully so! Most photographers offer complicated packages that include session fees, print fees, and no digital downloads of your images. Well, we ain't down with that.
Saratoga Baby offers all newborn photography packages for a flat rate of only $300 plus tax.
Posed Newborn Photography
A posed newborn photography session is how photographers get those super cute images of their babies in adorable settings that look like they're right out of a magazine! This session typically takes about 2.5 hours. The reason for this is because it is essential for the baby to be in a deep sleep in order for the photographer to pose the baby.
The photographer, and the clients, need to allow time to get the baby to sleep, feedings, changing, soiled blanket removal, adjusting poses, adding props etc. All this must be done slowly and quietly so that the baby doesn’t wake up. Poses include more traditional, sleepy poses, and often hats, bows, bonnets.
Lifestyle Newborn Photography
Lifestyle newborn photography is a more relaxed approach to capturing these special moments. These photoshoots usually take place in the client's home. I personally prefer to use the master bedroom, living room, and sometimes even the kitchen. A more journalistic approach is taken during the session, and while I will pose the family for a number of photographs, I’ll also be there to capture those special "in-between moments" during diaper changes, feedings and extra cuddles.
