Newborn sessions typically last anywhere from two to three hours, depending on how often the baby needs a feeding/change or snuggle break.
Newborn sessions include sibling and parent shots if you desire.
Includes use of any props, blankets, hats etc. provided by McLanahan Studio.

There is nothing more magical than the first few weeks with your new baby. The super curled up, sleepy time is over in the blink of an eye so we suggest your bring your newborn in for the session between 5-14 days new, when they are at their most snuggly. If that window has past, don't despair! McLanahan Studio can still create beautiful portraits of your baby. Just keep in mind that they will be more alert so most likely you will get mainly awake shots. 



I absolutely adore everything baby. These are probably my favorite sessions! You will see tremendous changes during your baby's first year. From sitting to crawling, the first year is full of so many changes including seeing your baby's personality emerge along with playfullness and lots of giggles. I suggest at least two sessions to document each of these wonderful phases. 

6 to 8 months: sitting up, crawling and full of smiles

12 months: standing, possibly some first steps (cake smash can be added to the birthday session)

Many of my clients also like to include a third session to their milestone plan. The third session can be used as a family session or around the 18 month mark when your child has fully reached toddler status! 

Baby Milestone Sessions $200

Family and Children Sessions $200



Family sessions include up to 6 persons. If you would like to document your relationships with adding grandparents/extended family to your session please contact me for a custom qoute. Generally sessions last about an hour, however I take my cue from the children. It may be short or longer depending. 
Currently any families over 4 will have your session take place outdoors, we will help you choose the perfect location

I am never in a rush and will go with the flow depending on how your children are doing. Some children that are more shy make take a few minutes to relax around me before I even pick up my camera to start shooting. My style is a little more on the posed side however as the session goes on and everybody starts to relax I with focus on more candid interaction shots. I typically will ask you to play with the children, tickling, telling a joke or getting big bear hugs to capture those genuine smiles.
