We’ve written before about Elanna Sesink-Clee of Elanna D Photography: The Philly-based photographer, you may recall, does beautiful work with families, kids, moms-to-be, and — a particular specialty — newborns. Elanna loves the artistic element of newborn photography, she says, and the fact that it allows her to show off her “vintage-loving” side.
“I also love that I can spend time planning for a newborn session — getting sets and props ready, picking out colors and that sort of thing — and I love the fact that newborns are so sweet and innocent. Capturing them like this for their families to remember brings me such joy.” What’s more: In addition to being a photographer, Elanna is also a professional nanny, so she’s very used to little ones, and has the gentleness and patience that it takes to get the sweetest shots.
Anyway. Elanna’s newborn sessions come in a couple of different package options: The more basic of the two ($275) focuses on just the baby, and you get up to two hours of shooting, as well as a private online viewing gallery, 15 to 20 digital images (with printing rights), and your choice of one birth announcement design. The second package ($375) can include the whole family in a lifestyle session at your house or in Elanna’s University City-based studio. (Home visits are an option for the first package, too, actually — but in both cases, you’ll pay a little extra for the travel.) This package includes 25 to 30 downloadable, printable pictures and the birth announcement, as well.
