 Newborn Sessions

Newborn Sessions are 395.00 and include a 3 hour session in the comfort of your home  + at least 60 images with print release! You will also get your pictures in black and white as well. Within two weeks after your session you will be emailed a link to both view, share, and download all of your high resolution images to your computer to be printed at a lab and time of your convenience. However, I do I highly recommend choosing mpix.com for prints. They offer true professional prints at a fraction of the cost.

I do bring all sorts of props to your session, but also would love to use anything sentimental to you! I understand that we are working with a newborn baby around 6-10 days old, and so with that we will certainly have breaks for feedings or diaper changes. That it totally normal! I am there to work around your little one’s schedule, and am totally ok to stick around a little longer if it means getting the pictures. I love to take artistic posed shots of newborns, but do know that at all times safety is my number one goal! If you have any questions about how my newborn sessions are run please feel free to contact me via the contact form or email chelseahomesley@gmail.com

To simplify the rate of 395.00 includes:

  1. A pre-consultation via phone or email to customize your experience
  2. The use of my props – I have quite the collection after many years
  3. A 2-3 (sometimes 4 if needed) hour in home session with me
  4. My time and talent. Each image is artistically edited one at a time by hand in CS6
  5. An online gallery with all digitals both to download and share (no limit to sharing). Send away to friends they can download too!
  6. Print release for ALL images!
  7. That’s right! You get All of your images edited with print release! You can expect 30+ images in color and in black and white. That is a total of 60+  images all hand edited. If time allows and baby is doing great I am certainly up for taking more ;).

Maternity sessions are 250.00 when booked with the newborn session. The rate is 300.00 when booked alone. This session is held either in your home or outside at a local park. I recommend doing this session between 30-33 weeks. The session rate does include atleast 50 high resolution files with print release. To view more maternity images visit the portfolio tab on the home page and select maternity from the drop down. Please note I do typically stay 1-2 months booked out. I recommend booking your session during your first trimester. Also I am currently building my collection of maternity gowns for shoots. If you book out with enough time I can purchase one of your choice for you to borrow!

For a very limited time family sessions are 275.00 and include at least 50 digital high resolution images.  As a added  bonus I give everyone copies of those images in black and white! Two weeks after your session you will be emailed a link to both view, share, and download your high resolution files. Having your files gives you the ability to order prints at a time convenient for you. Plus you won’t have to agonize over choosing which ones to purchase!  Sessions are held at a local park or around your home. These sessions are fun so please do not be concerned about whether your 2 year old will sit still! I love to chase them for the shot! ;). There sessions are about families playing together and capturing memorable candid photography. Feel free to bring any sentimental toys or props for your children.  No image is given straight from the camera. Hours are put into making sure each image is hand edited and given the signature style you see on our website.  I would love to work with you on customizing a session for you and your family! To reach me you can use the contact form on the home page menu or call me at 704-929-8382. I look forward to hearing from you!

please note that as of 2016 all service providers in NC must now charge a 7% tax. The 7% will be added to the final balance when purchasing your session.  I only take 30 weddings per year so that I can give enough time and attention to each bride. Currently I have 6 more spots for weddings for 2017. I am booking 2018 weddings as well.
