Capturing a moment in time is why we love what we do. When you're a parent, the days are long, but the years are oh so short.  They will be grown in a snap. Professional photography truly is a gift to yourself, your family and your children that will last a lifetime.  It is our goal to catch each precious detail of your newborn. The budding personality of your toddler. The fun of a cake smash.  The innocence of your growing school-age child. The independence of your high school senior. The beauty of your pregnancy.  And the love, and often chaos, of your familyYour photos are moments frozen in time. Moments that you’ll never have back. They are an investment and arguably the most meaningful investment you'll make.

All packages include the use of studio props, backdrops, and equipment. Your session is customized to fit your style. You and your child/children will enjoy a unique portrait experience as we laugh, play and get silly!

Newborn Sessions - It is never too early to book your newborn session!  We schedule a limited number of newborns each month due to the demand of sessions and a busy schedule.  When you book your session, we pencil you in on your due date and tentatively plan for your newborn session to take place shortly after your due date.  We understand that babies are on their own schedule and sometimes come early or late.  Once your baby is born, please notify the studio and we will schedule your newborn session.  When you book with us, you can be assured that we take our time and do our very best to acquire all of the shots that myself and my assistant have planned for.  You will be given our undivided attention and meticulous attention to detail.

With the Sugar Snap Newborn package, your creative session DOES include photos with parents and/or siblings. If you choose not to have those photos, we'll add an additional setup for your newborn. We highly recommend photographing your newborn between 5-12 days new to ensure a sleepy, flexible baby. Our clients schedule their newborn session 2-3 months before their baby is due. With your paid retainer of $100, (that applies to your balance) we hold a session for you. We schedule a limited number of newborn sessions each month, so it's very important to book early! (We recommend booking in your second trimester.) Contact us as soon as you can once you're home with baby (in between feedings and diaper changes!) and we'll firm up the actual date and time of your session. Newborn sessions are shot at 9:00 am on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  We do not schedule newborns on weekends.

{DETAILS} We are extremely gentle and patient with every baby we photograph, but do not be surprised if your baby is fussier than normal.  We are, after all, constantly touching and moving them while they are trying to sleep!  The room is kept around 85 degrees to keep the baby nice and cozy. Keep that in mind when you are choosing your own outfit (dressing in removable layers is recommended!).

{WHAT TO BRING} There isn't much we ask you to bring for your newborn session, just the essentials. For baby, diapers, wipes, blankets, binky, bottle, and formula or breast milk.

{FAMILY IMAGES}  For family images, you want your images to be soft and timeless.  We recommend you start with a cream/pink/blush color for mom, have dad wear a solid, and children as well, or a black long sleeve or 3/4 sleeve shirt or a white, cream or earth tone shirt.  Soft colors work best. We recommend a complimentary color shirt for dads, either button up, polo or solid t-shirt.  The images below show you the backdrop choices for the family portion of your session.

{PACKAGES AND MORE} We've created four packages to choose from so that you can choose what best suits your family.* We are passionate about what we do and our goal is to create art of your precious little one and family. Doing this means hand-editing each image; it is our craft! We pride ourselves on having your gallery delivered to you in a timely fashion. All galleries are delivered within 8-12 business days. Prints and canvases take about a week to arrive at our studio after we receive your order. We'll let you know when your order has arrived and you may pick it up at our studio.

Regular and Milestone Sessions - These sessions are available for anyone from 4-months to 12 years. It is our goal to catch each precious detail of your baby, the fun personality of your toddler and the innocence of your growing school-age child. For children over 5, we recommend shooting outdoors for best results.  (Did you know you can add a cake smash session on to any regular session?! See below for cake smash details!)

{DETAILS} We highly recommend booking your milestone sessions as far in advance as possible. When it comes to photographing babies and toddlers we move at their pace. While we plan for specific session lengths, we are often finished much sooner. We know when kiddos begin to tire and we never want to push them too hard. The quality of your photos is our priority! The Sugar Snap package session does allow for one outfit change (see details in the packages below).

{WHAT TO BRING} One outfit change if your package includes it. For baby, diapers, wipes, blankets, binky, bottle, and formula or breast milk. If your young child responds favorably to a favorite toy, please bring it! If your child loves music, please have their favorite tunes cued to play on your phone! If you have specific items you'd like included in your session, please contact us ahead of time to make sure we can incorporate them. 

{PACKAGES AND MORE} Our regular Sugar Snap Milestone is for a single child only. Please refer to the Sibling package if you'd like more than one child included in your session. We are passionate about what we do and our goal is to create art out of your precious little one and family. Doing this means hand-editing each image; it is our craft! We pride ourselves on getting your gallery delivered to you in a timely fashion. All galleries are delivered within 8-12 business days. Prints and canvases take about a week to arrive at our studio after we receive your order. We'll let you know when your order has arrived and you may pick it up at our studio.

Cake Smash Sessions - Turning one is a big deal! You’ve survived your first year as a parent and it’s time to celebrate! Capture these fleeting moments of your little one as they transition from that sweet baby to a toddler, full of personality. The cake smash sessions are some of the most fun, and one of the most requested, sessions we have here at Snapbean! It’s a blast to watch your little one’s reaction to their very own little party

{DETAILS) Your cake smash session is designed just for your child. We customize your setup including backdrop, balloons, and a custom cake! We have a variety of colors and props to make your cake smash session not only beautiful but lots of fun! (If you have a specific color request or theme, please let us know that at least two weeks prior to your session.) You may add on a cake smash to a regular session or book a cake smash only session. Cake smash sessions are included in all Watch Me Grow packages!

{WHAT TO BRING} The outfit and any accessories you would like your little one to wear in his or her cake smash photos. Some parents opt for a cute and bright tutu, a customized onesie, pants and suspenders, or just a diaper cover. It's totally up to you and what you prefer. We do ask that parents bring a washcloth and towel as well as another outfit to change into. (Cake smashes get messy! We'll help you to our breakroom sink to clean up with soap and water afterward.) You may also want to bring a change of clothes for yourself. Most parents do not get out of a cake smash without getting a little messy themselves!)
