Newborn Pricing

Pricing includes time and talent of the photographer, the editing of the images, and the specified number of edited digital files from your session available for download. All props for newborn and milestone sessions are included and are available in the studio. Please contact Laura to reserve your session!

Newborn sessions take place in my home newborn studio in Cary. All props are provided! Pricing includes the time and talent of the photographer, the retouching and editing of the images, and the specified number of edited digital files from your session available for download. Digital files are delivered in high-resolution .jpeg format, and you will also receive a print release allowing you to print and share your photos for your own enjoyment. You will also receive a USB drive of your images for backup.

I curated the “heirloom” package based on my experiences as both a photography client and as a professional photographer. When I get my annual family portraits taken, I find that I gravitate towards wanting three basic things:
(1) a single large image to hang on my wall, to serve as a daily reminder of that specific time in our lives
(2) a collection of my favorite images in book form, as a tactile way to look through the collection of images every so often. I find that the images from a session tell a different story when viewed together than the single image that I display in my home, and having a hard copy of the images from the session protects me from losing the files in the case of technology mishaps.
(3) digital copies of my photos to share with family and friends on social media, and the ability to print extra photos or photo gifts as desired.
