{FIRST48} Investment

The {FIRST48} session captures the first hours of your baby’s life after the new mom has had a chance to eat, shower, and maybe get some rest before being photographed.  This is a lifestyle session of your baby in your arms, parents counting fingers and toes, and lots of cuddling.  This is the perfect session to have older siblings join you to meet their new sibling!   Many moms choose to include some nursing photos in their session.  Most images will be edited in black and white.


{FIRST48} - $600 (includes $500 print credit)

  • I will be on-call for two weeks surrounding your due date to come to the hospital within 48 hours of your baby's birth.

  • 60-min. session in your hospital room before you are discharged (or at your home if you had a home birth). Siblings are encouraged to be part of the session!

  • A minimum of 25 images will be in your gallery for viewing at your proofing and purchasing session. 

The session fee includes a consultation, the time for your session, editing your images, and your proofing and purchasing session. The session fee also include a $500 credit toward the prints, products, wall art, or digital negatives you wish to purchase.  Most clients invest $750 - $1500 on their {FIRST48} images before the session fee is deducted.

What is a proofing and purchasing session?  I am a believer in the power of PRINT, something that has fallen by the wayside in this digital age, and I want you to have family heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation, so 2-3 weeks after your session, we'll meet in your home to reveal your gallery and allow you to order images.    I will be able to show you sizes of images that would fit in the spaces you have on your walls.  You will be able to see samples of products so you know exactly what you’re investing in and know exactly where you will showcase your images in your home.


  • *Gift prints - 8x10-in and smaller - are $50.  Wall art starts at $450.  Albums start at $895.  Digital images are $200 each.  In addition to the session fee, clients typically invest $750 to $1500+ on the prints, albums, and wall art for their home.  A detailed pricing guide is available at our first consultation.
  • Since availability is limited each month, a non-refundable retainer fee of $300 is due to hold your session on my calendar. The balance is due 4 weeks before your baby's due date.
  • 8% Georgia sales tax is added to all items purchased at your ordering session.
