The First Year
One of my favorite sayings for Motherhood is; "The nights are long, but the years are short." I remember when I was a new mom, I NEVER thought I'd sleep again. But then before I knew it, I was enrolling my daughter in Kindergarten. *cue those mama tears!* It is so cliche, but there is so much truth in the fact that it goes by in the blink of an eye. I hope you have been getting some sleep, and soaking up every moment thus far.
Because of how fast the moments go, and how much your sweet child changes throughout their first year, I decided to create a special membership for my clients. I want you to be able to have professional photos that concrete the milestones of your babies first year. So when you display the images in your home, they are all the same quality and they truly capture your childs personality and features.
The Newborn Experience is done before your baby is 14 days old. It includes professional hair and makeup for Mama, and 25 custom birth announcements. You will also receive your entire gallery of digital images and a 16x20 wood print from the session.
After many years of photographing babies during their first year, I have found that the best time to do these sessions are at 4 months, 8 months and 12 months.
The Tummy Time Session is done at 4 months, this is when your baby can hold his head up on his own and lift his chest up off the ground. This is also when they start giggling and emerging from their newborn selves.
The Sitter Session is done at 8 months, when your baby can sit up unassisted, and they aren't yet crawling (most of the time).
The Cake Smash Session is done just before they celebrate their first birthday. We go all out, and get a cake for this session and we capture that first moment of celebrating the biggest milestone. This milestone also includes a petite family session. We book these two sessions on different days because I am cautious to not overstimulate your child. So cake smash one day and an outdoor family session another day.
Each session is 30 minutes and includes 14 digital images, with the option to add on extra images. I do provide outfits and props, however you are always welcome to bring your own.
I offer two different payment options. It is $300 down and $150 per month for 12 consecutive months. If you choose to pay in full, it is only $2,000.
If your child is more than 6 weeks old, I offer just the membership without the Newborn Session. This is $200 down, and $100 per month for 10 consecutive months. Or you can pay up front for $1,100.
If this is something you'd love to experience, you can book now and I will reach out to you in the next 24 hours to schedule your first milestone session.
