Newborn Baby Photography by Northamptonshire Photographer Karl Drage

NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHY by Northamptonshire Photographer Karl Drage

I look forward to welcoming you and your new addition into my studio for your own newborn photo session. Each newborn baby photography session lasts a maximum of three hours. During the session we can work our way around the various areas of the studio, each designed to produce a slightly different type of photograph.

The rustic crib is one of my favourite props in my newborn photography studio.

There’s a wide selection of backdrops to suit every skin tone and an even wider selection of complementary fabric and wrap colours to complete the look. I also have a number of baskets, boxes, beds and sofa props for maximum cuteness.

The packages are:

1) Newborn BABY Photography BASIC PACKAGE – £200

The full £200 package price is payable before your session takes place, with 50% due when you confirm your slot in my diary and the other 50% due within 48 hours of the photo session itself (please contact me as soon as practical after Baby arrives to arrange the actual date/time for this).

When we’re all done, I’ll go away and edit the images that I think (hope!) you’ll like in both colour and black & white. Watermarked low-resolution samples will be uploaded to a password-protected gallery on the website, where you’ll be able to choose the images you would like to get printed.

The rustic nest bowl is the largest prop in the studio and can comfortably accommodate newborn twins.
This package includes:
  • Up to 3 hours in my newborn photography studio with my assistant (a qualified paediatric first aider who will assist with posing Baby and outfit changes) and I;
  • 5x prints of your choice at up to 18″x12″;
  • Fully-edited, high-resolution digital image files of the images you select for printing in both colour and black & white provided on a password-protected download link, which are licensed to you (I retain the copyright, so you cannot sell them to a third party), allowing you to send them to friends and family or print them however you wish;
  • A guarantee that if Baby does not allow me to get the bare minimum of 20 usable images from the shoot that you will be welcome to return and try again;
  • An album on my Facebook business page featuring up to 10 low-resolution images from our shoot;

Pricing for other products is available if you have a specific request.

2) Digital-Only Newborn Photography Package – £350

You might not automatically think it, but the high-resolution digital files from your session are the most valuable part. They are what enables you to print and keep printing the images captured.

By the time you get to see the gallery from your session, I will have already spent several hours editing the pictures. I use an amazing printer for the prints supplied within my packages, and the reduction in cost for a digital-only package is unlikely to be as significant as you might expect. However, people keep asking, so…. 🙂

people wantING to receive ALL the edited high-resolution digital files from THEIR session Have three options:

  1. If you DO NOT wish to receive any prints at all, the total cost is £350 (including the £200 Newborn Baby Photography Basic Package fee). Delivery of the edited high-resolution digital files will be via a password-protected digital download link.
  2. If you DO wish to receive the 5x up to 18”x12” prints from the Newborn Baby Photography Basic Package, the add-on cost is £175 (making your total spend £375). Delivery of the edited high-resolution digital files will be via a password-protected digital download link. Your prints will be shipped to your mailing address.
  3. If your total spend from the session is £400 or higher (Newborn Baby Photography Basic Package + £200 of add-on purchases, either extra prints or wooden USB / print box combinations – see below), you automatically receive all the edited digital files from the session. If you take a wooden USB / print box combination, the high-resolution digital files will be copied to your USB. If not, they will be available via a password-protected digital download link.

Please note that you do not need to decide on a package until after you have viewed your gallery. The £200 Newborn Baby Photography Basic Package fee is due before your session takes place regardless.
