Hi Soon to Be Moms and Dads!

I know when you thought about planning your newborn sessions, you never thought you would have to take a pandemic into consideration. At SBS Photography we know how important those photos from your little ones first few weeks are. As a Mom of a three year old, I know how quickly these precious newborn seem to grow up. I have spent the last few weeks planning out some ways that I would be able to safely offer sessions to those who are welcoming their newest addition, or may have welcomed a little one during the first few months of the pandemic. I have different options based on your comfort level. All sessions will be following the social distancing guidelines set forth by the state, and taking every step to ensure you and your newborn stay safe.

Option 1: Front Porch Session

Not sure you're ready to take your little one out but still want to get some photos of your new family in your first few days, then a front porch session is for you. This will be a thirty minute session at your house. I will be at least six feet from you during the duration of the session, and will wear a mask at all times. I will offer posing direction throughout the session and we will be free to move around your yard. These photos will have family members holding the baby. I will not have any contact with the baby at all (in terms of wrapping or posing). No props will be used for the session. This session will include your choice of 15 digital images with an 8x10 print of your choice. The cost for this session is $125.

Option 2: Outdoor Lifestyle Session

This is a session option that includes a little more of a traditional newborn session. We can hold this session in your backyard, at a local park (we will find a spot that is not going to be crowded) or at another agreed upon location. We will take pictures of baby with family members in a variety of poses and combinations. We will also take a few set up photos of the baby by him or herself. This will be on a blanket and with one simple prop. All blankets and props will be sanitized and cleaned prior to session. You are welcome to bring your own blanket if you are more comfortable. Baby will not be wrapped by the photographer (family is welcome to swaddle and I can provide instructions). I will provide instructions to the family member how to place the baby for the photos. I will not touch baby directly unless you would like me to. I will have gloves that I will use when I touch the baby and will use hand sanitizer before putting the gloves on. These will be more simplistic but memorable photos of your little one. This session will be 1-1.5 hours and will include your choice of 25 digital images and two 8x10's of your choice. The cost for this session is $195.

Option 3: Outdoor Posed Newborn Session

This session can be broken into two smaller sessions. The first session would be for family members and baby. These photos would be outdoors and can be done in your backyard, in a local park or in our open air outdoor studio for a more formal backdrop. After we will do 2-3 setups that will include some props and can include wraps or outfits. Most of what we can normally do in studio can b replicated outdoors. Any props or outfits provided by me will be cleaned and sanitized prior to the session. I can wrap the baby for any of these photos or provide instructions so the parent can wrap the baby. will not touch baby directly unless you would like me to. I will have gloves that I will use when I touch the baby and will use hand sanitizer before putting the gloves on. We will incorporate some the the nature in the area as part of our outdoor session. This session will be 1.5-2 hours and can be broken in two two smaller sessions (family 35 minutes and the remaining time for newborn only photos). This session includes your choice of 40 digital images with two 8x10's of your choice. The cost for this session is $295.

Additional prints or digital images can be added on at our special pricing.

Did you little one arrive during the pandemic and you weren't able to get your newborn photos done? Don't worry! We can do a memorable milestone session. The three options for newborn photos are also available for milestone sessions. We will tailor it to the age of your child.

SBS Photography is also offering payment plans if you have faced a financial hardship during this time.

Please reach out with any questions. I can't wait to see capture this memorable time for you and your family!

This first 5 people to book an outdoor newborn session will receive their choice of 5 additional digital images or an extra 8x10 print of their choice added on to their package for free!

So much goes into preparing for a new baby to enter you family. Celebrate this special time with something special for the mom-to-be, a maternity session!

At SBS Photography we have an ever growing collection of designer maternity gowns that have been designed specifically for maternity photography. They are made from super comfortable material, and are designed to be one size fits all. They are stretchy and supportive in all of the right places.

I know personally how hard it was to find maternity dresses when I was expecting my daughter, so I made the decision to add these fantastic gowns to my client closet to make these sessions as stress free as possible for my Mom's to be.

I have a long list of new dresses I am adding to my client closet in 2020! The designer I use (the wonderful Chicaboo) has released so many beautiful dresses in the last few months, with even more on the horizon. So I decided to create a special offer for all those wonderful Mom's to be expecting between January and March 2020.

The first mom to book each of the dresses below will receive a discounted maternity session. Sessions will be $100 for a 30 minute session at one of pre-selected locations. You'll get to use the dress that you pick. After your session you'll receive a proofing gallery from which you'll get to select your 10 favorite images for your own private gallery. You'll be able to download these images in high resolution. You'll also get to select one image as an 8x10 print!

I'll update the list as gowns are selected. Remember, it is the first person who books each dress that gets this special deal, so don't delay! Upon booking you'll receive a contract and a session retainer of $25 will be due to hold the date.
