A Newborn Changes Everything.
The connection is instant, the love unconditional, the feelings of protectiveness big. Then feeding schedules, diaper duty and the hunt for 3 or 4 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night seep into your life. Things get busy. One day as you’re gazing down at your baby you realize that he or she has already begun to change.
You don’t want to forget a thing and it ALL feels SO important…
This is where we come in.
Newborn photography will help you remember this once-in-a-lifetime stage in your and your baby’s life. This may be your 1st new baby, or maybe it’s your 4th, but we’ve been here more than a thousand times. We’ll expertly lead you through the process of having your baby photographed while we create images you will love.
Here’s the thing about pictures you love. The pictures you love today will mean even more to you months, years, even decades from now.
Is your baby older than 4 weeks?
With our Baby Plan we photograph your baby at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months of age. Throughout the year we will expertly lead you through the process of having your baby photographed while we create images you will absolutely love. If your baby is under 4 weeks, we include a newborn session free. So, if that’s the case, keep reading right here to learn how the newborn session works.
The pictures we create for you will be the ones you love that you NEVER put away.
They’ll be in a permanent spot somewhere in your home, maybe your office. You’ll glance at them every day and that will nudge to the surface some of the wonderful moments during your child’s growing up years. Your heart will warm and the day will lift.
That is what pictures you love will do for you.
Is there ANY other investment that increases in value over time like that?
How the Newborn Session Works
Before the Session
You only have to plan as much as you want to.
If thinking up an idea or two these days leaves you empty, then you’ve come to the right place. Just before the session we’ll listen to what is important to you, ask a few questions, then we’ll create visions you didn’t know you had right before your eyes. Here’s what one of our clients, Jennifer, had to say about her experience with us:
We were nervous about having our newborn photographed, but the minute we walked in we were put at ease. They really listened to what sort of “look” we were going for and spent lots of time with us getting just the right shots. We have beautiful photos of our baby girl, and moments we will never forget. Words can’t express how much these photos mean to us!Jennifer Cusato
We love to incorporate your ideas. Here’s a few examples of things you can bring.
- A crib quilt or favorite blankie
- Hats, headbands and other headpieces
- A favorite stuffed animal
- A uniform or other gear to symbolize Mom or Dad’s profession. Maybe Mom’s a police officer or Dad’s a firefighter. Bring all that gear & we’ll build a set on the spot!
- Maybe you’re an ER nurse or you teach school. Bring a few of the things you use every day – your stethoscope, your books, your ledgers. We’ll create something that is uniquely you.
- Are you sports fans? Have a sports shirt? Hat? Bring it. We have footballs, baseballs, mitts and bats, soccer balls and hockey pucks but bring anything else you want to include.
Don’t forget the family pictures!
I know. I hear you. How can anyone consider taking a picture of you just after you’ve given birth? Well, I’ve got your back with this one. I know how to slim and flatter you and we’ll assist you with what to wear and what to bring.
Do a tiny bit of advance planning with our direction, then leave the rest to us. And if you’re still not convinced, no worries. We’ll never force you to do anything you really don’t want to do but we know that down the road you’re gonna love these pictures. And, as important, your family and most especially your baby – when he or she is older – will love having these pictures to look back on.
During the Session
If baby-gazing isn’t already your favorite pastime, your baby hasn’t been born yet! You’ll have lots of time to do just that during your session.
Most of the time you don’t need to do a thing other than watch your gorgeous baby as we create little pieces of baby art. What could be a better way to spend a few hours of your time?
A word about fussing. Here’s the thing – ALL babies fuss. It’s just how they talk to us. We schedule ample time to feed and comfort the baby. We create a calming atmosphere and we have an endless supply of patience, as well as a a special ability to quiet almost any baby. That all comes in pretty handy. We can count on the fingers of one hand the number of newborn sessions that we’ve had to reschedule due to fussiness.
Session Timing & Scheduling
Newborns move at their own pace and we’ll let them take the lead. Expect to relax at our comfy studio for up to 3 hours. This leaves enough time for unhurried changing and soothing.
In scheduling a newborn appointment, it’s best to contact us either before your baby is born or as soon as possible after birth. To ensure each client gets my full attention and a relaxed session there are only 10 openings for new babies each month and we fill every one, every month. The sooner you sign up, the sooner we can lock you into a given month.
What we say is one thing, but what our clients say is EVERYTHING!
Here’s what just a few more of our clients had to say about their experience with us:
When my newborn arrived, I was beyond excited to see what they would come up with. The studio was warm and comfortable for a (naked) little newborn. They took time setting up everything for each shot so it was just perfect. They really listened to what I wanted and had enough great ideas so I didn’t need to come up with an idea for a shot if I didn’t want to. I have never seen a photographer with such an eye for detail and such patience. The appointment is scheduled with more than enough time for your baby to eat or get changed as much as she needs to. The session is not rushed at all. The baby runs the show and I love that!Karla Hall
Amazing work! They have an uncanny ability to capture my children in their most beautiful moments. It has been an absolute pleasure working with her and I couldn’t be happier with my pictures. Thank you!Kimberly Schueroff
I am so happy to have captured my daughter so perfectly. I can honestly say in the past I dreaded picture day as I always felt frazzled trying to coordinate and keep the kids happy as we were rushed through and held hostage to pick photos while kids went into meltdown mode, but NOT anymore!! Best choice ever!! Thank you Pixel Perfect!Lindsay Clapp Gagnon
I’m still in awe at how well my daughters newborn pictures turned out. I’ve been raving about them ever since!Jacki Lynn Pugliese
There is so much thought and effort that goes into every scene or prop used. They have a vision and such an eye for beauty in everything. My daughter was a little cranky so needless to say I was nervous the pictures were not going to be good. But when I came to the viewing I was blown away. The pictures were amazing! Among so much chaos of the session, with poopy diapers, snacks and squirminess, they captured some of the best moments. I am so thankful to have found such a talented studio.Rosi Dinan

Yes, But I Have Questions…
(Toggle each question below for the answer)
My baby has a skin problem. Should I wait to sign up?
It’s a trick question, right? Almost all babies have some kind of skin problem going on and we never know when it will clear up. Besides, with expert retouching on any purchased portrait you’ll see flawless baby skin, just as it should be.
Do you travel? I can't imagine getting out of the house right now.
All our sessions are done in our beautiful studio located in southern Merrimack. It’s easy to get to and there’s lots of free parking. You don’t need to clean your house or make room for all our gear – all you have to do is show up at our place. In the studio we have everything you’ll need to be comfortable including a changing area, toys for the siblings and snacks for you. We keep things warm enough in the camera room for a newborn to be comfortably naked. You may sweat a little but your baby will love it.
We have everything we’ll need close at hand including our vast prop closet, to create images that you will love and that will be personally you. If having a photographer travel to your home is a deal-breaker, though, then we are probably not the studio for you.
How much is this going to cost me?
There are two parts to our pricing, the session fee and portrait pricing.
The session fee covers our time and talent in the camera room, or time to process your images in preparation for your review and our time to review your images with you. We mentioned earlier that the session fee for all your baby plan sessions (including the newborn if you join us early enough) is just $99 – over 65% off our regular pricing.
For portrait pricing, we have lots of options, too numerous to list here so we’ll provide some ballpark figures. Some people spend more, some spend less than the figures here, depending on their wants and needs.
- Our gift portraits (8×10 and smaller) are meticulously retouched, professional sealed and mounted, wrapped in glassine and delivered to you in a gift box with a personalized bag that you’ll re-use again and again; prices start at $135. Wall portraits are hand-finished and sealed, available in 2 finishes and gallery wrapped or framed with your choice of 4 moldings; prices start at $339.
- Clients who join us for a single session usually spend $800-$1000 in packages that may include items such as a wall piece, session album, gift portraits and a multimedia slideshow.
- Our baby plan clients generally spend $400 – $700 per session over the life of their plan in packages that may include items such as albums or books, gift portraits, framed pieces, custom announcement cards, multimedia slideshows and digital negatives.
I'm not sure about investing in pictures right now. With kids there are a lot of expenses.
None of our clients has ever regretted investing in quality pictures with us. When my own daughters were babies, I was not photographing and did not choose to have any professional pictures taken. I would give anything to go back in time and re-think that decision. Photography may be one of the few investments that is guaranteed to be worth more years from now.
That said, we do understand the financial reality families face these days. Been there. So, we offer several payment options – Visa, MC, Discover, checks, cash, EFT, money orders. We also offer hassle-free, no-interest financing for many of our packages. This is HUGE for many of our clients – select the images you like, we’ll help you find the package that’s best for you and then we’ll craft a payment plan that will fit your budget. It’s not a layaway, take your pictures home and pay over time. How cool is that?
I'm convinced but my husband isn't yet...
We know that moms & dads make buying decisions differently. We CAN tell you that we have hundreds of dads who have decided, once they joined our family, that it was the best thing they ever did. Read what Mark Barnes, a true Pixel Perfect convert and believer, had to say and let your baby’s dad know that this is one of the best investments in his family that he will ever make.
“I have to say that I was skeptical at first but once I saw the images I was sold. This is one of the best investments we have ever made!” – Mark Barnes, Natick MA
What if I’m not happy?
This is our guarantee – you must be absolutely thrilled with the portraits we create for you and your family. Love them, or – you’ll get every penny back. There is NO risk to you. You have NOTHING to lose. And everything to gain. And we think you’re going to love what we do for you…
Here’s what one of our clients, Linda, had to say about her experience with us:
In particular for me, the newborn session stands out. Gail kept letting me take breaks to nurse and change my 8-day-old baby, and even helped me soothe her back to sleep multiple times. As a result, the shots from our newborn session are my absolute fav orites, really incredibly artistic photos. Gail really knocked it out of the park with that session. I’m so glad I found the time to bring the baby in, during those crazy newborn days!
