Year One Portrait Rates

Session Types


Creating fine art images of the anticipation of your newest family members.  We have a small client wardrobe available and will help you with clothing/styling options to feel your best. 


Done any time in the first 6 weeks. For sleepy squish portraits we recommend within two weeks of birth or wait a bit and start to see their personality come out more awake and first a few smiles. 


Usually a baby-only studio mini session at 3/6/9 months to capture those new tricks. Head control belly time and find my feet for 3 months, sitting at 6 months and crawling/standing at 9 months. 


Time to celebrate that first year! Generally booked as a full session. We start the session with some family portraits, move onto baby by themselves and end with a cake/fruit smash. 

Session Fees


In Studio & Urban Neighborhood


Our Studio is located in downtown Lowell, MA in an old industrial revolution mill building turned hipster marketplace called Mill No. 5. We have use of the mill and surrounding neighborhood full of brick architecture and green space. 

The studio is thoroughly cleaned after every use. We use a modern and simplistic style focusing on the subject. For maternity, newborn and first-birthday sessions we have a small client wardrobe on hand. 

On Location


Dreaming of whimsical fields, the beach, or the forest of your bump session? We have lots of locations near and far we can use for our setting. Traveling with a new baby is tough, I’m happy to come to your home for your newborn session. 

Once you are booked we will schedule a planning meeting to go over location logistics and outfits to make it as unique as you.  A small travel fee may apply.

*Mini Session Locations must be within 10 miles of our studio in downtown Lowell. 

Adding your crew


Parents, siblings and pets can be included in any of our sessions. Please let me know prior to booking so we plan for enough time. 



After you book your session you will receive our style guide and a chance to schedule a meeting to create a personalized experience for you. We will go over the best outfits, props and location for a successful session. Meetings can take place via zoom, phone or even text.

We have a small client wardrobe available for use which we will discuss during our planning meeting. 

After Your Session


Roughly two weeks after your session you will receive a proofing gallery to choose your favorite images for retouching. A mini session yields roughly 20 proofing images and a full session yields roughly 60. Your session package comes with a limited number of images, however, you have the opportunity to purchase additional digital images or products should you choose to. 

Signature retouching


All our final images come with our signature editorial level retouching. This includes, blemishes, fly-away hair tidying, teeth whitening, eye brightening, skin and clothing smoothing and background detailing. We do not use filters. Each image is individually retouched to make you look like your best self.

How do we book you?

Easy, fill out our contact form. You should get an email from us within 48 Business hours. If you do not get a follow up email. Please reach out to

After you have reviewed our full pricing and we have chatted about a date we will send you our studio contract to sign and pay for your session. Once we receive both the contract and session fee you are locked in for that date/time/location. 

Are Digital Files Included?

As technology advances so do clients' needs. We offer a product credit that can be used to purchase the fully retouched digital files.

Can you hold the date while I check....?

Short answer is no, not because we don’t want to but really to be fair we have to work off a first come first serve basis. Certain times of the year like fall we receive multiple inquiries a day and some are more motivated than others or are just looking for information. If life gets in the way, as it does sometimes, just contact us to make sure your desired date is still available if not, we will find something else that will work.

How long will my session be?

Pet and Mini Sessions are 30 minutes while full and generation sessions are 60-90 minutes. Newborn sessions can sometimes run 2 hours due to feeding and breaks.

This, of course, depends on the cooperation of our subjects, available light, how many people in the session, etc.

Location sessions tend to be longer than studio sessions due to traveling from one spot to another and varied lighting situations.

How many photos will I receive?

All our sessions come with a product credit that can be used towards the images they love in a format that works best for them. The number of images is up to each client.

After the session, we proof the images through a timed web gallery to make your select purchases.

Pet & Mini Sessions – Average 20 Proofed Images

Full Sessions – Average 45 Proofed Images

Generation Sessions – Average 60 Proofed Images

Special Events – Average 200 Proofed Images

Can I see or purchase "the rest" of the photos from the session?

No. Image files are HUGE so in order to keep all our computers and operations as fast as possible, we delete outtakes right away.  We do however keep a few alternate crops. These will be released only if there is an issue with the original.

Are you open to bartering or offer discounts?

We love bartering! We generally do an even exchange for the dollar amount. Make us an offer.

Past wedding clients, public school teachers, COVID19 health workers, and first responders. Please inquire about our discount. 

Cancellations & Rescheduling

Session fees are non-refundable retainers to hold your date/time, however, we do give our clients up to one year to reschedule their session with 24-hour notice.


We take health and safety very very seriously. Also, no one, especially kids looks good when they don’t feel good. Please let us know and we will work with you to reschedule. I will absolutely let you know if anyone in my family has been sick in the last 24 hours as to not infect your family. We expect the same courtesy as we do work with humans with compromised immune systems.

What if I don't like my photos can I get a refund?

We have a pretty healthy track record on satisfaction.  If you are unhappy, we will offer you one reshoot. Your original files will be deleted. No reshoots or refunds will be given once the products have been ordered. This includes delivery of digital files.
