All sessions require a session fee, due at booking, to reserve your spot.  Your session fee includes Jill's time to photograph your family, finish production of her favorite images, and a private viewing session of 30+ fully edited images to choose from.  All prints and products (including digital images) are purchased separately, with collections beginning at $300.  Most clients invest between $500 and $1,500 on their custom portrait experience. 

Newborn Sessions

Your newborn session includes 25 custom designed, boutique birth announcements.  You only get one chance to photograph that fleeting newborn stage, and all those sweet little details.  Jill is an expert in the field of newborn photography.  Not only has she been beautifully and safely posing newborns for many years, she also teaches workshops to photographers looking to learn the art of newborn photography.  She does all the work to soothe and pose baby perfectly, which makes for a relaxing and stress-free experience for mom and dad. 

At Sweet Confections Photography we never put a time limit on our newborn sessions because some babies are sleepier than others.  We will take all the time necessary to get every beautiful image you envision for your session.  Our beautiful studio is well stocked with a huge selection of props and backdrops.  Lifestyle newborn sessions (which are done in your home) are also available. 

Babies first year plans are also available, as well as a maternity/newborn package. 

Baby, Child, or Senior sessions

Capture the wonder and magic of childhood with a beautiful portrait session that is custom tailored to your child and capturing their unique personality.  First birthday sessions include a fully custom designed birthday backdrop, built to suit whatever theme or color scheme you envision!  Senior sessions include studio shots as well as outdoor shots and 4-5 outfit changes.  Hair and makeup is also available to be added to your senior session. 

Family or Lifestyle session

Family photo sessions should be fun, not stressful!  Your photo shoot will last approximately 1-2 hours and yield 30-60 edited images for you to choose from.  At your private viewing appointment Jill will help you plan ways to display your photos as stunning custom artwork in your home. 


Headshots may be done at the studio, at your business location, or at an outdoor location in the area.  The session fee covers a 45 minute session.  Digital images from headshot sessions can be purchased for $50 each, or at a discounted rate if multiple images are purchased.  Travel fees will apply to any sessions done outside my 20 mile radius (from Niskayuna, NY).  Additional fees may also apply if you need a weekend session.

Mini Session

Mini sessions are perfect when you only need a few pictures to choose from.  Digital images and/or prints are not included in this price.  Mini sessions are 30 minutes long and result in 10-15 edited images for you to choose from.  Includes 1 location for up to 4 people.  Mini sessions are not intended for groups with over 4 people.  Mini sessions are only available on weekday mornings. 

Occasional mini session days (such as holiday mini sessions) are held on select Saturdays throughout the year.  Please email me to be added to the contact list for notifications on these events.
