I’ve been really doing some thinking lately about this crazy economy of ours and it hurts my heart that I can’t be in everyones budget. It really does.
I absolutely hate that good quality once in a lifetime images of your brand new baby are a luxury and not a necessity.
I hate that you have to settle for someone different when your heart was set on working with me, but your bank account just didn’t agree.
Trust me, if I could do this for free I totally would. Unfortunately, my bills have to be paid too. My babies need clothes and food.
Props aren’t cheap. At all. And I like to keep things fresh and updated for you all, so I spend thousands upon thousands every year purchasing new things for your little ones sessions and updating equipment and learning new things.
I have sat down and worked out all of the equations to figure out what the lowest price I could work for and cover expenses and pay bills and such would be and that’s what my prices are now. That’s also why they haven’t changed in almost 3 years.
I try to keep it simple for you. I try to fit in everyones budget, but that’s just not always an option.
With that being said, I’ve racked my brain to come up with a solution for some of you.
Obviously I can’t be free and be the solution for everyone, but I am trying to figure out ways to help out at least SOME of you!
So here it goes!
We will be offering a handful of Newborn Mini Sessions each month.
The details are as follows:
This session is for baby only. No parents or siblings are allowed.
Up to 45 minutes in studio with the use of items from our amazing prop/backdrop collection
Your choice of one color fabric beanbag drop with 3 poses of your choice (based on baby cooperation)
