Newborn Session Types

At Emily Karr Photography, we offer a few different options for your newborn photo experience. Please scroll down for more information.


The Simply Baby Session

The Simply Baby Session is an all-inclusive option. This means it includes the session fee & the products listed below each session. Simply sessions are abbreviated sessions which showcase your new baby in a simple, organic approach.  The goal of this session is to provide you with top quality, artistic images in a smaller collection (compared to Signature or VIP Newborn Sessions).  The Simply Baby Session includes either 5, 10 or 15 final images. You will choose the quantity in advance. Approximately 10-14 days following your session, your images will be uploaded to a password protected gallery for you to download, print & share. This shorter all-inclusive session is helpful if you have a specific budget in mind.


The Signature Newborn Session

The Signature Newborn Session is a full, interactive session which showcases baby in a variety of poses, sets, props & backdrops.  The cost of this session is just $150!! You can include baby’s siblings & parents if you choose & we encourage you to do so.  This session generally takes 2-3 hours to ensure you have a full gallery of images to choose from. About 7 days after this session, you will come back into the studio for your Reveal.  During this appointment, you’ll be presented with 25 or more beautiful images. You’ll make your image & product selections & place your order. 

All images & products are purchased separately from the session through Create Your Own Collection or a la carte. Please see starting prices below.


The VIP Experience – Baby’s First Year Plan

The VIP Experience – Baby’s First Year Plan is the best of the best. This experience is actually a collection of sessions throughout baby’s first year. It includes a Signature Newborn Session and 20 newborn images.  You will receive a print of each image as well as the corresponding digital file in a keepsake box.  You also become a Client for Life with free milestone sessions throughout baby’s first year & other special perks & offers.   Additional prints & products are available for purchase separately. We invite you to visit the studio for a complimentary consultation (by appointment) to learn more about our VIP Experience.


What to Expect?

Before your session we’ll discuss which session will suit your family needs best.  If you have chosen a Simply Session, 50% of the session fee is due to book your due date & place you on our calendar. The remaining 50% is due at your session. If you have chosen a Signature Session, the $150 session fee is payable in advance to hold your due date.  We realize babies arrive on their own schedules so we block off time in our calendar 2 weeks before & 2 weeks after your due date.  We also realize extended hospital stays are sometimes necessary, so we have accommodations in our schedule should that occur.  During a pre-session consult we will discuss your vision for the session as well as your family & home.

Approximately 48 hours prior to your session you’ll be provided with a parent prep guide.  In this guide there are several tips which will help ensure the success of your session. It will help immensely if you follow these guidelines.

When you arrive at the studio the day of your session, you can participate in the newborn portion of the session or sit back & relax in our cozy waiting area & leave the rest to us.

We accept all forms of payment including cash, check, major credit cards & Paypal credit. Paypal credit is an excellent way to pay for your Simply Session or Signature Session Product order over 6 months, interest free.
