As photographers we use the lens to tell stories, and it is a beautiful privilege and powerful tool to capture amazing moments that would otherwise go unnoticed.
Audra Wrisley - Audra Wrisley Photography
Oh the million dollar question, and wouldn’t that be something if it was a million hey? haha! I kid I kid, the reality is that this will cost you some money, and possibly even more than you had planned to spend. But I can promise you that the end result WILL be worth it!
There are three options when booking a newborn session, let me break them down for you to make it as simple as possible.
1. Purely Complete newborn session - This is the session you'll book if you want to include parents and siblings in the images, however if you want to book this session just for baby you absolutely can!! You get more included with the Purely Complete newborn session, WAY MORE! You'll get 30 plus digital files (and when I say minimum, that's really what it is, some sessions can get upwards of 70 digital files with a happy sleepy baby!!), as well as a custom gorgeous birth announcement made, that includes 24 announcements you can mail out to family and friends. This session is also maximized to give you the most value for your dollar, it includes props, beanbag, parent, sibling, family, macros (close up images of baby's details), wrapped, unwrapped. You name it, we'll do as much as we can! For the Purely Complete newborn sessions the cost is higher because, well, the sessions are longer, you get more, and the session as a whole is more of a hot yoga workout for me than anything.
2. Purely Sweet newborn session - This session is a miniature version of the complete session. If you're in a position where you only want a few images of baby, and just want to add siblings, this is the session for you!! Typically this session I will keep baby wrapped for the majority of it, but will include a few shots of baby naked as well if you'd like those included. The session time is much shorter to get you in and out the door faster. You'll get 12 digital files of the photographers choice, which can include macro images (close ups of hands, lips, feet, etc)
3. Purely Fresh newborn session - This is the easiest and quickest of the newborn sessions, making it the cheapest! One set in a prop with baby wrapped up, just enough to give you a few lasting images of baby. This is the PERFECT solution to those that don't have the budget to allocate to newborn photography but really don't want to miss out on these fleeting moments of their sweet little love. You'll get 6 digital files of the photographers choice, which can include macro images (close ups of hands, lips, feet, etc)
All sessions are a single fee with digital files included, to keep it as simple as possible!

When we had our third, and last, baby, we bit the bullet and invested in newborn photographs by Ally. I was so impressed by her professionalism, safety, and sheer passion and talent for what she does. The images were more than I could have hoped for - so special! We ended up getting breastfeeding photos done to capture the last time I would nurse a sweet babe, and did one year old portraits. My only regret was not having Ally there to photograph my labour and birth. Quality photographs are such a worthy investment! I could not recommend Purely Fresh enough!
We’ve done multiple sessions with Ally and let me tell you, you will NOT regret doing a session with her. Ally is so so talented, friendly, personable, kind, genuine, and the list goes on and on. She works with her clients on so many levels to ensure they end up with the most lovely photos. My husband and I have two small children and Ally being a mom herself, is also SO understanding and good with kids which we feel makes a huge difference. Kids don’t always sit and go along with what we have planned but Ally is so patient and good with kids (and the kids love her) and even when the the kids are being a little wild and not cooperating, she is still, somehow, always able to get the best photos. I swear she’s magic!
Ally has taken photos for both of my maternity and newborn photo shoots, as well as many family photos in between and I have never been disappointed. Her knowledge, skill and attention to detail guarantee that you will receive beautiful and original photos that are nothing short of artwork. Allison listens to what her client is looking for and tailors each session accordingly, finding the perfect location, backdrop, prop or baby outfit (of which she has no shortage!) She is very skilled at positioning babies in adorable poses while taking great care to ensure that the safety of the baby is of utmost importance. She is creative, gentle, careful, and so patient when achieving that perfect pose, even if baby has other plans. Purely fresh has so beautifully captured moments for my family that we will cherish for many years to come and I look forward to more beautiful photo shoots in our future.
