Newborn Photos...

So, quick question! (Yes, I know I didn't do my 32 weeks update, it's coming soon - just a tad late!)

How much would you be willing to pay for newborn portraits? Are they something that would be/are important to you? There's a WONDERFUL photographer in Tupelo, MS who is willing to drive to my house in Cleveland to take my newborn photos. (That's 158 miles!) There is a traveling fee when it's over 50 miles but it's not as much as I expected. So - how much would you be willing to spend TOTAL on newborn pictures?

The option of finding a photographer in our area is kind of slim - especially since I'm looking for a particular style. If you'd like to see her photos - click here.

Part of what I love about her photos, is she allows you to have the high resolution images on CD so you can print whichever sizes you want of whatever pictures you want for a flat fee. I would love to be able to give these to my family as I'm sure they would all love them! This way, they wouldn't have to pay an arm and a leg to get pictures of Caroline.

Anyway - Just comment and let me know what you think! I've got my estimate for how much this would cost with using her services and I want to see if others think it's reasonable. :) Thanks!


  1. If I had the money, I'd be willing to spend 500 or so on newborn photos. You can never get that "I'll sleep anywhere you put me" stage back!

  2. Hey Kacie! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It's neat to find poeple in the same stage of pregnancy and compare. I just went to that photographer's website - WOW!! I love her work and would even be interested in using her. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy - I'll be checking in on you! How much extra did she tell you to travel? I think we live in the same husband is a farmer too.

  3. Pic #33 in her gallery just melted my heart.
    I'm not pregnant and I have none, but if you can afford it, I'd pay whatever. You'll never get those moments back. Capture it while you can.

  4. She looks like a super photographer. I would spend as much as I could afford! You don't get this stage back and they grow so fast. Keep in mind that you'll want to do pictures during the stages too, so don't spend all your $ in one place if you're on a budget.

  5. I'm with Audra... $500 sounds reasonable (including traveling and purchasing the digital files...)

    Love you!
