Why invest in Professional photos? In this fast paced highly evolving world of technology, we are more likely to snap our home photo’s with our cell phone than that expensive family camera you have safely tucked away in the closet, I’m guilty of this myself! A great camera is also good for capturing moments in your life when a professional photographer just cant be there. But I do strongly believe that it is important to let a professional capture certain moments in your life and occasionally family portraits. This leaves you stress-free and with the ability to exist in the pictures with your family. Plus, you’ll get higher end quality images.
It’s worth having some photos taken that can stand the test of time – digital and print copies. Professional portraits are a great way to capture the milestones that pass us by all too quickly. A great photo is a timeless and classic gift that keeps on giving over the years and can be passed along from generation to generation – an investment worth making!
ALL MY SESSIONS HAVE A SESSION FEE-
THIS COVERS MY TIME, MY TALENT, AND ANY TRAVEL, SET-UP AND BREAKDOWN. PRODUCT AND IMAGES ARE PURCHASED SEPARATELY.
Before your session I will either meet with you in person for a quick consult, or a phone consult if we are unable to meet. This is important to me so that I may get to know you, and you may get to know me a little bit. After your session, I will invite you to my studio where we will sit down and watch a slide show of your pictures to music. This is also when you get to decide what package you would like to purchase and pick out what images you would like for it ** Due to the nature of the business and scheduling, a non-refundable down-payment session fee is due at time of booking ($100-$150) – PAYMENT PLANS can be arranged and are always an option.
CLOTHING AND PROPS?
I have ALL of the Newborn Props and Accessories, Maternity Gowns, and Sitter Outfits up until 18 months – everything you see in my portfolio is typically mine from A-Z so no need to bring a thing!!
I also have an inventory of BEAUTIFUL HANDMADE MATERNITY GOWNS, almost everything you see in my portfolio is mine.
Maternity Package – $100
( 60-75 minute session, book a newborn session and get $50 off your session fee plus up to 10% off your images )
- Your Session
- Gallery of 20-30 images to view for purchase
- Access to my inventory of beautiful hand-made gowns and maternity baby doll lingerie.
This session is for Mama’s who would like to capture the entire family or would simply like more variety poses and outfits. When family is included I like to split the session by doing individual photos of just Mama, Parents only, the entire family, Mama and the kids, and as always the DETAILS (my favorite). These sessions will take place either in studio or during the sunset/sunrise hour(s) only for outdoors. (I recommend booking this session between 32-34 weeks along).
Newborn Package – $150
(2-3 hour session)
**It is highly recommended to BOOK your Newborn session months in advance to ensure a spot on my calendar and since it is best to shoot within 14 days of birth – Newborn Sessions are typically booked on weekdays ONLY as parents typically have more flexibility in the weeks after having baby and my weekends are booked out far in advance with other sessions**
- Your Session
- Gallery of 20-30 images to view for purchase.
- Access to my inventory of beautiful handmade knits, bonnets, outfits, wraps, and props.
- I always include parent and sibling shots with these sessions if desired.
Newborn sessions usually take between 2.5-3 hours. Let’s be real, even though these little bundles of joy just arrived, they’re running the show! Patience is key with these sessions, and breaking for feedings is almost always necessary to keep baby happy, calm and sleepy. Shooting this session within the first 14 days of life is ideal! The longer we push it out the harder they are to get in those adorable little poses.

This session is done outdoors between the months of May-October. It is best to book ahead to give time for choosing outfits. To see my pinterest board on ideas click here https://www.pinterest.com/kirstenbraaten1/ I really encourage all my clients to choose outfits that match according to a color palette and to stick to outfits that will look good 20 years from now, since styles are constantly changing, we don’t want you to hate your pictures years from now.
I also do a variety of poses such as: the whole family posed and interacting with each other just being themselves, parents together, kids together, and mom and kids, dad and kids, and each individual kid.
These sessions are only done at sunset as this is the most ideal lighting and very important to getting the best images possible.
