“Before you were conceived I wanted you. Before you were born I loved you.
Before you were here an hour I would die for you. This is the miracle of Mother’s Love.”
~Maureen Hawkins

All stylized newborn sessions (with backgrounds and props) take place at our studio located outside of Reading, PA. They are relaxed, memorable, and last last about 2-3 hours to allow for diaper changes and feedings. Props and backgrounds provided.  We also offer a lifestyle newborn session which takes place in your home and documents your baby’s newness in their home environment without the use of props or backgrounds.

Newborn sessions are best within two weeks after birth. While they are still extra sleepy.  Please book an appointment for a few days after your due date. It is likely we’ll have to shift around the dates, but we understand that babies come on their own time and there is no charge for rescheduling.

Within two weeks after your session, your images will be ready for viewing and we will meet again for a personalized ordering and design appointment in your home.

When you book a First Option newborn session, you can choose a stylized session with props and backgrounds in the studio – or a lifestyle session, where we capture natural images in your home environment.

Session Fee $200

We understand that babies come on their own time. We will set a date so that time is reserved on our schedule for you, but there is no charge for rescheduling.

Session fee includes:

  • a pre-session consultation by email or phone
  • an unhurried, relaxed session – either a stylized approach in our studio with props and backgrounds provided, or a lifestyle session in your home
  • unlimited groupings & poses
  • an in-person ordering and design session

All prints and products are available separately for purchase a la carte or in collections at the in-person ordering and design session.  We are proud to offer a selection of the most unique and highest quality products in the industry.  Clients typically invest anywhere from $500 to $1,500; however, there are no minimum orders so you can spend what you like.

The custom experience of a Life Story newborn session is only available for an exclusive number of sessions per year.
Contact us with your due date, and we will get back to you to answer your questions.
