Newborn Session Details
Liz is the perfect artist to photograph your newborn or toddler. With her experience as a pediatric nurse and years of studio experience, there's no situation she cannot handle, especially being a mother of three boys. She has seen it all!
About the Session
The best time to photograph a newborn is within the first 2 weeks of life. This is the perfect time to capture your baby while they still have those fresh wrinkles. All newborn sessions are done in the studio and generally last 3 hours. All necessary props and accessories are provided, but feel free to bring any special blankets, knit hats, wedding rings, or anything else you would like to include. Pacifiers are nice to have on hand, even if you have not yet introduced one.
Investment/First Year Packages
YES... I DO SELL DIGITAL FILES!!! My goal, though, is for you to have these portraits on the walls of your home, always visible. Always able to be cherished. I know first-handed how busy life is with a newborn. That's why I want you to leave here--portraits in hand--so a year from now your portraits are not just on your computer but beautifully displayed on your wall.
When Liz sets up your photography session, she will also work with you to set up a time for you to view your portraits. At this appointment, please be ready to make ALL purchasing decisions. Make sure to bring all family members that will help guide you in the decision process. Please come prepared with the sizes needed and all gifts you will want to purchase.
*Special discounted packages are available for the first year (3, 6, 9, and 12 months). Contact Liz for details.
Session fee is $500.
Gift size prints (5x7 and 8x10) start at $29.

Please use the planning guide to help choose what size portraits you want and where you will display them.
After you have placed your order, please allow 2-3 weeks for your portraits to arrive.
How to Schedule
DON'T WAIT UNTIL AFTER YOUR BABY'S BIRTH TO SCHEDULE!! It's best to contact Liz while you are pregnant. Once Liz receives your session fee, you will be penciled in 1 week from your due date. Since no one truly knows when the baby will arrive, Liz asks that you contact her once you arrive home from the hospital to confirm a session date. (Sessions are available Monday-Friday from 9 AM-12 PM. Dads, plan your days off accordingly.)
Sessions are secured by full payment of the $500 session fee. Liz accepts cash, check, or credit card. No appointment is scheduled until payment is received. Sessions fees are non-refundable.
Before You Come
Think about who you want to be in the photographs. You? Your husband? Any siblings?
Please feed your baby just before arrival to the studio so he/she will be content and sleepy for the session. But, of course, we'll stop the session as needed to keep your baby full and happy.
Now... let's talk about you--the parents. Solid color clothing looks best and helps keep the focus on the baby.
And don't forget about your hands! Since they will more than likely be photographed, keep in mind that neat, natural nails look the best.
