Babies grow up so fast and with each passing year every change and look is remarkable. At Ananchel Fine Art Photography, we believe that families should capture the wonder and innocence of childhood through storytelling portraiture.
Newborn sessions are best when done within the first 2 weeks of life. Sessions are done for the most part without clothing on the babies. For a newborn session you should allow for 2 hours, in order to allow time for feedings, changings, sleeping and of course a little loving. Some of the most precious memories are captured when they have full tummies and are sleeping. **Please Note: Newborn sessions are not included in our Baby Plan.**
Stepping Stones Baby Plan $145
Includes 3 month, 6 month, 9 month & first birthday sessions. Cake & balloons are provided for first birthday session. No session fees and discount pricing for each included session.
Please note: It is your responsibility to schedule and use the baby plan sessions. These sessions cannot be transferred or substituted for any other session, product or service.
