Client satisfaction is incredibly important to us, and we spend a substantial amount of time and attention with each client. Because of our commitment to detail, we can only accept a limited number of clients per month. It is strongly recommended that you book your session at least 2 months in advance to ensure our availability. If you are interested in a newborn session, please contact us as soon as you know we are the studio for you, as we typically book far in advance. 

The creative session fees cover the time, talent and vision of Soben Studios, beautiful editing of your images and a private online viewing gallery to share with family and friends. Your session fee does not include any images, either digital or printed; these are purchased separately.  High resolution digital collections begin at $795. Please contact us for a full list of our rates, products and collections.
