Newborn Sessions

Capturing Their Sweet, Squishy Newness

Studio Newborn Session


prints start at $50

collections start at $500

(*does not include digital files, please see below for details)

Newborns are best captured within the first two weeks of life, when they still remember what life was like in the womb.  We want to photograph them bendy, curly, squishy, and oh so sleepy.

What that means for you?  You will be in a blissful, blurry, and tired fog.

But no worries, this is where I step in.  . . .

Once you reserve your due date on my calendar by booking your session (which you should do while you’re still pregnant as I book up in advance and because rushing to book a session is the last thing you should be doing after having a baby!), you will receive detailed information, setting forth everything you need to know in preparation for your session.  It’s all laid out for you to make your experience one of ease, convenience, relaxation, and personal attention.

Then, contact me as soon as your baby is born and we will schedule the specific date and time of your Newborn Session within that 2 week window.  All you have to do is show up at the studio and I will take it from there.

The session is slow paced and relaxed, lasing approximately 2-3 hours to allow for feedings, cuddling and soothing as needed.  I have everything needed at the studio, including backdrops, floors, buckets, baskets, wraps, blankets, furs, hats, and headbands.  Parents and siblings, if any, are also included in the session if they’d also like to be photographed at no extra charge (I highly recommend, regardless of how you think you’ll feel at the time!  I know you will be tired, but that is why I have Photoshop and you definitely don’t want to miss out on these memories!).  Grandparents and aunts/uncles are welcome to be photographed as well for an additional $25/per person.  Please let me know in advanced if you plan to bring other family members.

Approximately 2-3 days after your session, 30-40 soft-proofed images will be available for viewing in your online gallery.  The gallery is open for 7 days for you to place your order.

The Studio Newborn Session Fee is $200 and due at the time of booking to reserve your due date on my calendar.  All Photographic Art Products, including Heirloom Prints and Digital Files, are sold separately so that your order can be customized to fit your needs.  All sessions include complimentary design services so that together, we will create beautiful art of your new baby and precious family, to display in your home and show off to your family and friends.  For planning purposes, please know that RJP newborn clients invest on average $800-$1000 for their custom photography and photographic art pieces.

Please contact me at with any questions, to check availability, and to book your session!


Mini Studio Newborn Session


A Mini Studio Newborn Session is perfect for those who want a handful of images without the image variety or full investment of a full newborn session.  The session lasts between 1-2 hours and includes 3 set ups.  Parent images may count as one “set up” but sibling images or family images with siblings are best suited for a full session.

The $450 session fee includes the session itself and 8-10 high resolution digital files that will be sent to the client for digital download approximately 2 to 3 weeks after the session.   Photographic Art Products are available for purchase.

Please contact me at with any questions, to check availability, and to book your session!

I look forward to capturing your new little one!
