Amy Sayre Photography | Newborn Photography Session

So you want newborn pics.

That's great!

Newborn photos take some patience, but they are so worth it. This is such a memorable, fleeting time, it only makes sense to slow it down a bit by capturing it with photos.

For the best newborn photos, you'll want to schedule pics to happen within the first 10 days of your baby's life. I know, I know. How are you supposed to do that when the miracle of life is somewhat unpredictable? Call or email me near the start of your third trimester (or before), and I will pencil in your expected delivery date. I know this date is a guess, but as long as I know what time frame we're working with, fitting in photos of your little one won't be a problem whenever he or she (or they!) decides to make an appearance.


Newborn sessions typically last anywhere from 3 to 4 hours. The session fee includes the photographer's time and talent only. Prints and digital negatives are available for purchase separately. Print and digital collections begin at $199 or can be purchased a la carte.

When you schedule a newborn session, you will be asked to pay a $100 deposit to hold your date. All locations outside Chicago city limits may be subject to a travel fee.

Book three shoots in the same 365 day period and receive 50% off your final session fee. In my opinion, the best series is a newborn shoot, 6 month shoot, and first birthday shoot.

In addition, get 25% off album prices to commemorate your baby's year.

Since before the babies come the bellies, we can't forget about a maternity session. When you book a newborn session, you have the option to purchase a discounted maternity session.

Maternity session fees are $200 and include 5 high resolution digital images. Maternity sessions are for moms and dads only.
