Photography Investment

From the moment we connect, I want your experience to feel completely different than any other photographer with whom you’ve ever worked. Because I specialize in creating artwork, I make it a point to get to know you and your family. 

Below, you’ll find some more insight about working together and some common questions I hear from first-time clients.

Sessions starting at $700

This fee includes the a session fee for artists time for consultations, session and ordering. This also includes a $500 print credit. This does not include any artwork or digital images. These can be purchased separately after you have viewed the proofs from your session. 

The Pampered Mama: $850

This fee includes standard creation fee, $500 print credit, and hair and makeup for mama. 

Client Average Investment: Average client investment ranges from a few hundred to $10,000. I want you to get exactly what you want and nothing more. 

why invest in Newborn photography?

Investing in newborn photography is a big deal. It’s the first moments in your little ones life and they will only be this tiny for so long

You want to know that the photographer you choose has the best interests of you and your family in mind. The peace of mind you have from knowing you’ll walk away with beautiful images will stick with you forever. Why not invest in someone that will create one of a kind memories that will be cherished for a lifetime?

Getting To Know You | Phone Consultation 

The first thing I always start with is a phone consultation. This allows both of us to gauge if we are a good fit to work together. Because I am not like other photographers in Kansas City, I want to make sure that what I offer is going to fulfill your wishes. The first phone call will be all about getting to know you and your family. What are you looking for in a photographer? What are you hoping to accomplish? My wish is to make sure I fulfill all your photography needs!

What you can expect from me during this call.

  • I will listen more than talk. This is about you, not me (well a little me).
  • I will be 100% transparent with you.
  • We will talk briefly about the investment, but it won’t be the purpose of our call.
  • It will be an easy conversation, not a sales pitch. I know I’m not for everyone and I’m not going to try to please the masses. 

Let’s Meet Up | An In-Person Consultation

Once we have established that we are destined to work together, we will schedule an in-person consultation. This is something that most photographers don’t do, but it is essential.

In this consultation, we will discuss several things. 

  • We will talk artwork placement and sizing.
  • We will create an action plan for your session; from outfits and hair to style and location. 
  • I will answer any questions you may have
  • I will collect the creation fee of $200, you will sign the general liability contract, and we will set the date. It will take between 30 minutes to an hour. 

Your Photography Session

Yay! It’s session day! During the session, we will meet at the location chosen during the in-person consultation. We will do both posed and more natural shots so I can ensure I give you lots of beautiful options from which to choose. If you have any must haves for the session (poses, props, etc.) we will discuss that at the in person consultation and incorporate them as we can. 

The Ordering Session

Once your portrait session is complete, I will edit them and choose the very best 20 to 30 images images. I will create a beautiful slide show for you to watch of all the wonderful memories we captured from your session. Don’t be surprised if you get a little emotional. Most do. You will be presented with many options; from single images to collages. We will also discuss framing options. At the end, I will take payment for your choices and place your order. The whole ordering session will take about an hour or less. All art is purchased at the time of the ordering session and all purchases are final. 

Pick Up Time

Turn around time is between 6 to 12 weeks after your ordering session. This time excludes framing. I work with a local framing company to give my clients high quality, acid-free matting, and archival quality glass. This will ensure that all of your artwork by M Baylor Imagery will be around for years to come. Once the framing is complete, you will have the option to pick it up from my studio, or I can bring it to your home.
