Birth Story Documentary Session

My birth story sessions are full documentary, photojournalistic coverage of your labor, the birth of your child, his/her first bath, and all those first moments of bonding.  These sessions are absolutely some of my favorite and most memorable.  Each birth is unique and I am more than honored that my clients trust me to join them and document this very intimate and emotional experience.

Birth story coverage begins at $1,000 and includes documentary photographic coverage from active labor or c-section preparation through until 2-3 hours after birth. Additional options available in my collections include prints, wall art, albums, digital files and a Fresh 48 hospital lifestyle portrait session.

I provide a custom experience including a pre-consultation as well as an in-person ordering appointment to help you finalize the perfect way to preserve your memories in beautiful fine art products to enjoy for years to come.

"Fresh 48" Hospital Lifestyle Session

This is a session at the St. Louis, MO metropolitan area hospital (or other place of birth) your little one is born at.  I approach the session using a lifestyle approach designed to capture some gently posed “first family portraits”, some lifestyle portraits of your little one’s newness, and some documentary (otherwise ordinary) moments that you will treasure having captured forever.

These sessions begin at $350 for a 1-hour session (approximately 40-60 fully edited images), digital birth announcement slideshow delivered within 48 hours of your session, an online gallery for 60 days, and a $150 print credit.  Additional prints, products and digital files are available.

Please reach out to me via the contact page if you are interested in touching base on additional pricing information.

Milestone Storytelling Session (Maternity, Newborn and/or Baby) 

I love documenting the everyday moments and offer in-home baby sessions with a lifestyle approach.  These sessions can occur at any age/stage and are focused on capturing milestones in a photojournalistic manner.  Sessions do include a few relaxed portraits.  However, coverage is primarily documentary in nature and includes the whole family.  I encourage you to give your little one a bath, paint the nursery together, do a feeding, go baby shopping, or simply play.  The genuine moments we can capture are endless.

Session Fee is $350 per hour of coverage and includes a $150 print credit.  Prints, albums, wall art and digital files are an additional cost. I provide a custom experience including a phone or in-studio pre-consultation as well as an in-person ordering appointment to help you finalize the perfect way to preserve your memories in beautiful fine art products to enjoy for years to come.

If you are interested in a series of storytelling sessions, please inquire.  I do offer custom "9 Months in the Making" and "Baby Steps" packages that cover multiple sessions over time.  Feel free to reach out to me via the contact page if you are interested in touching base on additional pricing information.

Baby Studio Milestone Session 

I enjoy capturing portraits of little ones in-studio throughout the first year.  At 3-4 months this session is all about capturing expressions, pushing up, and macro photographs of your little one's features.  At the 6-7 month mark we capture the crawling and sitting milestone and end the session making a mess with some baby food.  At the 1 year mark we capture standing and walking and of course indulge in cake smash.  I love creating unique products for my clients built over a series of sessions and these kinds of sessions are perfect to make beautiful heirloom art your family will cherish for years to come.  

These sessions are for the baby only. Additional children or family members may be added for $50 per person. Includes 20-30 fully edited images for you to review. Prints and digital files are an additional cost.

Booking fee for individual milestone sessions is $150 and includes a phone consultation to plan your session, the session itself, enhancing your images into a work of art and your in-person ordering appointment to help you select the images that work best for your needs.  

Portrait Session Collections begin at $620 and include a 20" piece of wall art and a collection of all session digital files printable to 8x10. 

If you are interested in a series of studio milestone sessions, please inquire about our studio portrait Baby Plan.  Please reach out to me via the contact page if you are interested in touching base on additional pricing information.
