Shelly Pray Photography | Newborn Portrait Investment


Over the last several years newborn photography has become an art within itself. I have dedicated hundreds of hours learning my craft. Newborn photography is far greater than "snapping a photo." I assure you that when you ask me to capture your little one, I will take the utmost care of your tiny baby. I will ensure that each pose is achieved safely and carefully spotted by an assistant. I take all cues from your little one. Sometimes that means we will take several breaks for baby to eat, stretch and be soothed back to a peaceful sleep. 


As a business, I have invested in many newborn props, outfits, headbands and backdrops to achieve a variety of images. I will work with you to bring your vision to life. I want to coordinate with your home and nursery themes to create art that you can hang in your home forever. 


Your little one will never be this small again. Although there will be hundreds if not thousands of photographs of your baby over the first year, I work to capture your baby in a unique way that will preserve all their tiny details. 


Newborn portraits generally take place between day 5-15. This means that your baby will still be sleepy and flexible.  I take the time to fully customize each session and meticulously edit each image to provide the best quality, high resolution files and prints. For this reason I offer a range of options for your newborn experience. 


The best time to schedule your newborn session is during your second trimester. I am usually able to accommodate last minute schedules so feel free to contact me. Sessions are limited each month and are scheduled based on the due date of your baby. To secure your session a signed portrait agreement and deposit are required.


Session Fees Starting at $200. Please inquire for all pricing.
