Step 1: Announcement & Maternity Sessions

$250/hour

Before your baby even arrives you're getting ready for them to get here. Announcement sessions are early in your pregnancy and allow you to get photos to include in announcements, gender reveals or other ways to share the news with family and friends.

Maternity sessions are later in the pregnancy, typically between 28-36 weeks of pregnancy. Schedule yours to fit your lifestyle and make sure you're comfortable enough to walk around, and far enough along that you're happy with how much you're showing in photos.

Your family and pets are a huge part of your life, so feel free to include everyone you want in your session!

Step 2: Fresh 48 Session

Whether you're still at the hospital or just coming home with your new baby, a fresh 48 (or even 72 or longer) session can be a great way to capture the first few days for your family! I can come to the hospital and photograph you in your room with your baby a day or two after birth. Or if you're introducing your newest member to other kids, I can come to your home and get those first moments captured.

Step 3: At Home Newborn Sessions

$160/half hour or

$250/hour

Once your sweet baby arrives you'll want a newborn session! My newborn sessions are typically at home, though I have done them on location during good weather or at my studio. All newborn sessions are lifestyle sessions. This means that the focus is not on posing your baby, but on natural interactions with your newest family member. The photographs showcase your family spending time with your baby and are intended to create beautiful memories that feel natural.

Let me know your due date and I'll reach out on that date and send you a schedule to sign up for your session. Indoor sessions should be sometime mid-day as this tends to be a bright time indoors and tends to be a good time for most family schedules.  Outdoor sessions should be earlier in the morning or closer to sunset. I recommend at least an hour for these sessions.

Steps 4-6: 3 Month, 6 Month, 9 Month Sessions

Little ones change so much during their first year! You can schedule milestone sessions throughout the year to capture their personalities, interests and accomplishments at each step of the way. Or just choose the ones that make the most sense for your family!

 

These sessions can be scheduled at home, on location or at the KatFour Photo studio. Include props that help represent this stage in their life and include as many outfits as you'd like. These sessions can focus on your baby and make them them the star, focus on the whole family or be a mix of both!

You can mix and match session lengths to make sure that these milestones fit your family!

$300/hour for parties

The first birthday is a HUGE milestone for every kiddo! And one many families choose to celebrate with cake. Whether you want a family session, a portrait session for your 1 year old, a cake smash session, a mix of all that or a photographs at a birthday party, we can schedule the photos that are right for you!

I recommend at least an hour for the 1st birthday session if you want to include portraits, family photos and a cake smash.

For food safety and allergy reasons clients must provide their own cake for cake smashes.

  • Set up 3-4 sessions and receive a $50 print credit.

  • Set up 5-6 sessions and receive a $90 print credit.

  • Set up 7 sessions and receive a $125 print credit.
