Maternity + Newborn Pricing
I am honored to be considered for this special time in your life. I adore working with maternity and newborn clients and watching them grow! I offer both a baby plan and single session pricing. As a discounted full session, the baby plan is perfect for most families! Please let me know if you have any questions or are ready to book your session!
Baby plan - maternity, newborn, 6 months + 1 year :: $350 per session
This is the most popular option as it covers the first year of the baby's life.
-Maternity session can be on-location or in-studio. In-studio includes more intimate maternity portraits or a milk bath*
-In-studio newborn session is tailored to your nursery/home decor. Lots of baby posing, family/sibling posing.
-Lifestyle newborn session is held at your home using your things and surroundings. I do not bring props to this session but are happy to work with anything you have at home.
-6 month session can be held at studio or on-location
-1 year session includes a cake smash fully tailored to your party theme. The cake smash session includes cake and decor.
Mini Session :: $275
A mini is a 30-minute session held either at Megan's studio or on-location nearby of Megan’s choosing. It's perfect when you are looking for "just a few great shots" (There are usually about 20+ images in a mini session gallery)
For the newborn session: The styling is simple and the poses are more natural and baby led. If the baby is awake, as long as they are content we will continue to shoot them awake. We typically shoot with neutral backdrops and use the bed scene in the studio for parent/sibling shots.
*For maternity/baby mini sessions the sessions can be held outdoors at a gorgeous location near Megan's studio in Chester, VA. It sits right on the water, has a row of crepe myrtles, and a big manor house with a wrap-around porch. We also have the option to book 2 mini's back to back on-location and shoot anywhere in the RVA area!
Full Session :: $450
Sometimes parents do not want the full baby plan, and are okay with a mini maternity session, but want more out of the newborn session and this is the perfect session for them! It includes different set ups and props and the posing is a bit more intentional. Because it is not as time focused, we may take a few awake shots, but we really try and work with the baby to get them to sleep and pose and give you all of those snuggly baby shots you love! We can also utilize a more lifestyle approach here in addition if wished! It's the best of both worlds and offers many different pictures and set ups!
Birth Photography. $1200
I am honored to be present at every single birth, whether it is natural or cesarean, is a true miracle to witness and present you with memories for a lifetime.
This package allows me to be on call from all hours from 39-42 weeks of pregnancy, but please inquire about any possible pre-scheduled events and my back up plan.
I capture all of those moments that are so fleeting.. including labor, delivery, first breaths + moments together, weighing, measuring, first feeding (as hospital staff permits!)
I am typically present for a birth from 6-8 hours (time truly depends on how the day goes! I travel when you are ‘active labor’ at 5-6CM dilated!)
For a limited time, birth photography also includes a complimentary Fresh48 Session. This is done before your hospital stay is up, usually 24 hours after birth.
Fresh 48 session $325
Includes a 20 minute session during your hospital stay capturing your little one, siblings/family can be included.
Choosing the right maternity session for yourself is all about what you've dreamed of. I have plenty of examples of both intimate maternity at the studio and also on-location sessions. Family can be included in both sessions! Together we can chat about what you would most love your session to be. A maternity session* is included in the baby plan, but could also be booked as either a mini session or full session.
*There is a $25 additional fee for a milk bath
