Melissa Helman Photography | Session Information

When to book your newborn session.....

The best time to photography a newborn baby is when they re under two weeks of age, after two weeks babies are a little harder to settle and things like colic and baby acne can start to flare up.  You can contact me at any time during your pregnancy to give me an estimated due date, I will then make a tentative booking and when you arrive home from hospital with your brand new baby you can contact me to arrange a suitable time and day for you session.


Where your session is held.......

Your newborn session will take place in  my home studio in Greensburg, PA.


How long will your session take.....

Newborn sessions can take 3-4 hours, allowing enough time for feedings and comforting.



About 3-4 weeks after you session, I will email you to schedule your gallery viewing appointment.  We will review your slideshow of your gallery in my office.  The online gallery will remain active for 7 days.  Once full payment is received your prints will be ordered; they can take 2-3 weeks for delivery and longer for canvas, books or albums.  All images will be sorted and archived after 60 days.  Once the gallery has been closed there will be a $25 fee to upload your gallery for an additional 7 days.



You can order your prints at anytime after your gallery viewing appointment by sending me an email with your selection.  An invoice will then be sent back with payment details.  Payment can be made by PayPal, check, credit or cash.
