Fresh 48 First Glimpse $125
This session is a photojournalistic lifestyle newborn session that takes place in your hospital room within 48 hours after your child's birth. These photos are a great alternative to a birth session when you still want fresh baby photos but prefer a little more of a controlled photography experience.
30 minutes of shooting time.
I do not bring any props nor will I be posing baby during this session. The photos are strictly lifestyle images that capture your new family bonding and the brand new details of your precious little one.
Consultation by phone or email to answer any questions you may have.
This session also includes a "Welcome Baby" Blog post I create within 24 hours after your session. I choose up to 5 images to put into a blog post that you can share through, Twitter, Facebook, email etc. You can then introduce your new baby to all of your family and friends through these stunning photographs.
Included in the $125 are 10 high resolution files of your choice from your gallery with a print release so you can reprint at any photo lab. Files will be available for Digital download directly from your proofing gallery on my website.
It is best to prebook these sessions but I am almost always available on call for them also. You can call or text my cell at anytime to have me come in. 207-883-1637
Please allow 3 weeks for completion of your images.

Birth Photography $595
Unlimited hours of coverage of documentary shooting. I will be on call from two weeks before until two weeks after your estimated due date. Due to the on call nature of these sessions I can only take on one to two births per month so getting in touch with me to book your birth as soon as possible is of upmost importance.
Home births, Hospital births and scheduled c-section births are all the same fee.
After your baby is born I generally stay for up to two hours to capture your first moments of bonding and being together.
Included in the $595 fee are 75-150 beautiful black and white high resolution images on flash drive of your birth story. You also get a print release so you can print at any photo lab. I will also take some of the images that best show and tell the beauty of your birth story and set them to music in a slideshow and include it on your drive. It is an amazing keepsake to pull out and watch over the years on your child's birthday. I promise you will cry happy tears every time you watch it ;)
Birth Photography requires a signed contract. We will meet face to face to go over it and sign it so we can also get to know each face to face before the big day.
I offer payment plans for families that want their birth documented but cannot pay entire fee up front. Just inquire.
Please allow up to 4 weeks for completion of your images.
