Newborn Session Information
Custom Newborn Photography begins at *$299.00 in my comfortable full service boutique home studio. Session styling is planned by photographer and parents together using photographer's collection of props, designer newborn prop clothes, and accessories. I have many newborn sized prop clothing options, hats, hair accessories for baby, you do not need to bring a thing (other than baby supplies and Parent/sibling clothing). Newborn parents and siblings are included in a small part of the session and are welcome to be photographed at no additional investment. Snacks and drinks are provided during your time here.
Newborn sessions are best booked two months or more in advance for the best availability, planning, and custom experience. I may be able to fit a last minute newborn session in during the week, so don't panic if you just found me. After booking the session, we wait... for baby to arrive and schedule around baby's arrival. Moms and Dads will keep in touch and notify me as soon as baby is here or induction is planned. Newborns are photographed on limited weekdays in my home studio from 10:00am till 1:00pm. I recommend newborn sessions within the first 5-15 days of life. The newer, the better :) I know this is not possible in all circumstances and will of course accommodate for older newborns. Sessions last anywhere from 2-4 hours. Older siblings and parents are included in the session at no additional investment. (Pricing is for Session ONLY does not include products or digital images. All prints and products are sold separately)
A password protected gallery is included in the session and parents will receive the link by email within 14 days after the session. The gallery will contain at least 40 images from the session and are available to purchase directly from the site as prints, or digital files. I respect your privacy and ONLY with your permission and a model release will I post to social media. From the gallery you can purchase prints and products online a la carte.
Archival Custom Albums:
All albums are designed by me (and client) made by hand by artists through my custom lab. Albums are hard cover and showcase images printed on thick cardstock paper with a Smooth Matte finish. Pricing depends on the cover and page finish options chosen. Albums begin at $620.00 plus tax. A second exact copy of the album would be discounted by $200 when placing original order. Since albums are a custom item and then handmade in the lab, processing time can be 1-3 months.
Details on Sessions included in the Baby Bee One Year Package:
- Newborn Studio Session: The first 3 to 15 days of life. More details about the session as shown above in “Newborn Session Information” description. Approximately 3 hour session.
- Infancy Studio Session: Within the Fourth Month. In the Studio is recommended because this is the quickest and simplest of all the milestone sessions (we have to keep up with the very short four month old baby attention span). Approximately 30 minute session
- Sitting Baby: Within Month Seven to Eight. Weather permitting, on location of your choice within Tomball at no additional fee. 1 Hour Session
- Birthday Baby: The Cake Smash Session. Within 11-12 months. It is recommended to have this session a few weeks before the one year party. Images from the session can be displayed or can be printed and given as thank you notes. Parents bring the birthday cake, it’s time to get messy and celebrate. We also do a family portrait to celebrate the entrance into toddler-hood. This session can be in the studio or out on location within Tomball at no additional fee. 1 Hour Session
If purchased separately, the sittings and prints in the collection would be over $1500.00. I have greatly reduced the price for the Baby Bee Collection at the investment of only $800.00 plus tax**. This investment is due upon the newborn session and you will receive all the services as described in the “What is included” section above.
The fine print...

If you choose to have “on location” photography, it does not include additional destination costs. It is the responsibility of the parent to set appointment within scheduled times and select prints included in the package.

No refunds will be given. Debby Ditta and Debby Ditta Photography will not be responsible for any damages or injury or loss to person or property before, during, or after the session.
