portrait session pricing


   They grow and change before your eyes – steal those fleeting moments and keep them forever.

Our pricing is straight-forward and all-inclusive.  There is no hard sell or surprise fees – the price you see here is the price you pay, including Maryland Sales Tax.

  • Custom Session – In-Studio or On-Location within 10 miles – $742
  • Custom Session – On-Location 11-20 miles – $954
  • Custom Session – On-Location 21 miles – 100 miles – $1272

Custom sessions include all digital images – at least 50 but often many more (the average gallery includes about 90 images + black and white copies for a total of 180).  Prices include sessions in our Pasadena, MD portrait studio or on-location within 10 miles of the studio – we have several options in the area to suggest.  Below is a short description of the custom sessions we offer along with all-inclusive pricing. A 30% retainer is due to book your appointment and the balance is due at your session payable by cash, check or credit card. Each session is styled individually – let us know what your vision for the session is!

Newborn Portrait Session


As a general rule, these sessions are babies under 2 weeks old – or as soon as you can make it in the studio. Book the session while you are still pregnant to ensure availability. Certainly we have had success with 4, 6 or even 8 week old babies in those sleepy, curled-up poses.  Don’t be afraid to book a newborn session after 2 weeks.  2+ hour sessions include posing baby alone, in props, wraps, hats & headbands – all provided in the studio – followed by family portraits with each parent and siblings. 

*In-home sessions available – travel fee applies.

Maternity/Pregnancy Portrait Session


These may be intimate portraits of a pregnant woman alone, a casual engagement-shoot like session on-location or family portrait session including a growing bump.  Our studio provides maternity gowns and flowing fabric or you may bring your own wardrobe. Sessions generally last about 1 hour and are booked between 32-36 weeks pregnant.  

Milestone Portrait Session


Portraits to record the milestone of a certain age.  Typically include 2 looks without specific limits – but most babies are only comfortable in front of the camera for 30-40 minutes. These sessions are great for baby milestones (4 months – smiling/laughing, 7 months – sitting up, 10 months – standing & first birthdays) or yearly sessions for older toddlers and children.  

Family Portraits


 Unique and timeless portraits of a family.  Includes individual portraits, but the focus is the relationship between family members. Sessions are for 1 family unit of no more than 2 generations.  Please contact us for information on extended family sessions.
