Investment


Thank you so much for your interest in a custom photography session with Aileen Savage Photography

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I call it an investment because that’s what it is. You’re investing in the most important people in your life. Your precious baby that you prayed for and then worried about for 9 months before she finally made her way into your arms.

Your chubby 6 month old that will soon lose all of his baby fat when he starts walking. Your 5 year old that will soon lose his baby teeth or the 7 year old without his two front teeth. How about your beautiful, smart and sassy 13 year old with all her opinions? These moments are gone in the blink of an eye but the portraits will be there to tell the story. Your family’s story. The story you will cherish forever.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A non-refundable Session Retainer Fee of $100 secures your session date and your balance that is due the day of includes my time and talent to capture and create a gorgeous online gallery with 200+ custom-edited images of you or your loved ones (actual # of photos depends on the session you book). Your gallery will be live within 2 weeks of your session date and your pictures will be available for download from there free for you to use with printing rights. Any additional purchases are optional, not required.

Lifestyle Newborn Session (2-3 hours)

$500/weekday $550/weekend

This session allows for us to capture photos of you with your baby in your home w/ a more natural feel to the session compared to the posed shots I would get in my studio of your baby. You will be able to look back on the photos and remember your life as it was at this time in your life, in your environment, and we can include photos of the baby in its nursery, with big brother or sister, and the whole family as well. It's one of my most favorite sessions to do!

 

*Session will take place in your home

*Must take place within 2-4 weeks of the baby being born

*Instructions to follow after booking on how to prepare for the session

 

 

 

 

Studio Newborn Session (2-3 hours)

JUST BABY - $450/weekday

or BABY + SIBLING/PARENT SHOTS - $550

 

My new studio (shared with 4D ultrasound of Napa Valley), is the perfect space for me to get those posed shots of your precious babe to help you remember how little they were. I have my studio space that is warm and toasty to help get your little one posing for me, while the space you'll be waiting in is air conditioned with a glass door between the two spaces so you can still look in and see what's going on throughout the session. Parents are welcome to come into my space while I work for a while! But it's hot.... and it's also important to have some space between mom and baby so that baby doesn't smell breast milk and want to feed. For these sessions, I provide all the blankets and props necessary and you do not need to bring anything other than your little one. I have my studio stocked with the best newborn studio equipment and handmade goodies from talented vendors from all over the world. Newborn photography is my speciality and I am constantly taking online workshops to improve my skills and keep up with the latest newborn photography trends, while keeping with my style at the same time. Your baby's safety is my top priority as well, so I have an assistant throughout these sessions to help make things go smoothly.

 

 

Studio session will take place in my studio - 1827 Clay Street, Suite 3

Must be scheduled for when the baby is 5-10 days old

*Instructions to follow after booking on how to prepare for the session

 

I do take a very limited number of sessions per month, so please inquire at your earliest convenience to ensure space! 

 

The Simple Mini Newborn Session **NEW!**

$325/weekday

Want to capture just some sweet and simple shots of your baby? Nothing too posed... just a quick session to capture those details: nose, eyes, lips, fingers, and toes of your little one to remember before it's too late? You don't need a ton... just a few for keepsakes, announcements; and of course, for your baby to look back on one day. Then this is the package for you. Instead of doing my more challenging poses where I need an assistant, this is a session I can do by myself and much quicker than the standard studio newborn session that can take from 2-3 hours. This one will be 1-1.5 hours (depending on your baby) and you will get 15-20 photos (edited in my four different styles though, so 60-80 pics total) in an online gallery to keep and use freely. This type of session has a "less is more" approach... and the simple style of the session will give you timeless keepsakes to cherish for years.    

 

**Studio session will take place in my studio - 1827 Clay Street, Suite 3

It is ideal for sessions to be scheduled for when the baby is 5-14 days old. However, if you missed that window... don't worry. Still contact me and I will do my best to fit you in asap, if I have availability.
