Newborn Sessions

newborn family portrait in the home using natural window light


THANK YOU for your interest in modern, fine art newborn portraits with Bay Area Photographic Artist Anna Myers.  Here is some information about pricing and how the process works. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.


Newborn Sessions take more time than the average session with breaks for eating, soothing & putting the baby to sleep for certain poses.  Thus sessions with babies under 12 weeks are scheduled to allow for 2 to 3 hours. Newborn sessions are offered either in studio or in your home using natural window light.  We have many props such as buckets, bowls, chests, hats & headbands for those that desire that style – or we are happy to go no props. We are also happy to provide fresh flowers or large leaves for the newborn session – just ask!  For best results, 4 to 14 days of age is ideal for the newborn session – though this time frame can vary for preemies or babies born one week or more after due date. However, any baby under 3 months old is considered a newborn.  Contact the studio immediately after the baby is born and we can discuss ideal timing for the mom and baby, and normally can arrange your session within the first two weeks.  If the baby is already past 14 days – no worries. Anna has many, many years of experience photographing newborns of all ages, and we can discuss what to expect for the age of your newborn.

The session fee is a creative fee and includes photographer’s time & talent only.

There are no digital files or prints included – these are purchased separately from the session fee.

Session fees are as follows for MONDAY through FRIDAY 9AM to 3PM:


           – Newborn in Studio (2 hours) : $245

           – Newborn in Home* using natural light (3 hours) : $395

*travel fees apply for distances greater than 30 minutes from the studio starting at $50

A non-refundable $100 retainer is due at the time of booking your session and will be credited towards your session fee.

Your session fee includes a 30-minute pre-consultation to plan your session and discuss style, clothing, fabrics, props, make-up, hair etc (can be done over the phone or in studio), as well as a 90 minute post consultation at the studio to view your images, look at various print product options, discuss retouching  and place your order with Anna’s assistance.

Want to share your great images with friends and family? We have two sweet ways…

1) For every image you order – you will receive the retouched MINI FACEBOOK FILE – Woo Hoo! Don’t facebook? These are great for digital sharing in email, family websites, on your phone –  but are not printable.

2) Although we do not have any minimum order requirements, as a special bonus when you order $1000 or more in prints and print products – all of your retouched, ordered images will be uploaded to an ONLINE REPRINT GALLERY for 12 months so you and yours can easily purchase duplicates for great rates of $25  for 8×10’s and smaller! You can also design and order your own cards using modern templates, or purchase and download retouched medium resolution files on the spot!   This is an awesome feature for grandparents!


All of our prints include full retouching and finishing to create fine art archival products.

Printable retouched digital files are available to purchase as well as albums, canvases, and framed collages, to name a few.

Most clients spend anywhere from $800 to $2500 on prints, print products and albums from their newborn session.

Packages start at $395 and go to $3900, and can be shared with images from both your maternity and newborn session if you did a maternity session with Anna Myers studio.
