I recommend booking your BABY MILESTONE sessionS A FEW MONTHS IN ADVANCE, as I only ACCEPT a limited number of sessions per month to ensure I am able to fully serve my clients!

From those first sleepless days of newborn bliss to their first smile and laugh, the first food, learning to wave, discovering the world around them and often even preparing to take those first steps. Baby Milestone sessions are a shorter (yet still sweet!) session that captures your baby at their next milestone. Most common milestones to document are 4 months when they are starting to smile and show their little personalities and then 8 months, or once baby is sitting up unassisted. 

Cake Smash sessions are done around baby's first birthday and are such a fun way to wrap up the first year of their life! Sessions take place in my studio on weekday mornings, they include a simple smash cake and images of just baby alone in 2-3 different outfits, baby (hopefully!) smashing their cake and end with a warm bath in tiny claw foot tub to clean off all that frosting (and capture some more of their cuteness!). 

Because my goal is to capture your family’s story, parents are always welcome to hop into some images with their little one. I provide a thoughtful and luxurious portrait experience for the busy, sentimental mom that allows you to focus on the moment rather than the details and stress of planning. The expansive studio wardrobe has so many beautiful options for you to utilize for your session, no need to waste any time trying to find something for everyone to wear.

SO MUCH CHANGES IN YOUR BABY'S FIRST YEAR!
FROM THAT TINY NEWBORN TO A SMILEY,
TEETERING ONE YEAR OLD!

My complimentary consultation can be done over the phone, FaceTime or in-person at the studio.

the process

WHAT ARE THE BEST MILESTONES TO CAPTURE?

After the newborn session, month 4 and month 8 (or whenever baby is sitting up 100% unassisted) are the most common milestones to capture. Truly, any time you feel you want to capture your baby I highly recommend doing so, they grow way too fast! 

WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY BABY MILESTONE SESSION? 

As soon as possible! I take a limited number of sessions per month so I can serve my clients well. Most clients book 2 months in advance.  

WHAT IS THE COST OF A BABY MILESTONE OR CAKE SMASH SESSION? 

Baby Milestone session fee is $150 and Cake Smash session fee is $200. Digital images and professional prints and products are purchased separately. Most clients, planning on more than 2 sessions in baby's first year, join my exclusive membership. Please contact me to find out more about the membership and for more detailed pricing information! 

DO YOU SELL JUST THE DIGITAL IMAGES? 

All of my collections include a number of digital images and a print credit. In my experience, more often than not, most don't know what to do with just the digital images. It is my job to show you what archival, heirloom prints and unique artwork looks and feels like when you come into my studio so that after the session you have a better idea of how you will spend the print credit. Baby's First Year membership clients join for the beautiful heirloom album that is done after the completion of the sessions, its the perfect way to remember the first year! 

DO YOU OFFER ANY DISCOUNTS ON BOOKING MULTIPLE SESSIONS? 

YES! Sessions can be done individually or combined with a big discount by joining my Baby's First Year membership. If you plan to do more than one session between maternity and baby's first birthday, the membership is what I recommend because of the savings, amazing compilation heirloom album and VIP perks! 

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS? 

Absolutely! I realize that a luxury portrait experience is a big investment that many clients will budget and save up for. I can assure you that you will never regret an investment that is preserving these memories of your family. Please contact me so we can further discuss a payment plan that fits your needs. 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT THE DAY OF MY SESSION?

My sessions take place on weekday mornings in my private studio. I have a comfortable sitting area for immediate family with snacks and refreshments, some small toys and activities for little ones as well as a private bathroom and dressing room. Sessions are always baby-led and allow for breaks for baby to eat and snuggle IF needed. Baby Milestone sessions are shorter than newborn sessions (but still so sweet) and typically under an hour. Cake Smash sessions are more involved and are about an hour to hour and a half.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

Wardrobe is the most important part so we work closely together in planning your session and ensuring that you feel prepared and excited. My client wardrobe is available to use with lots of beautiful baby clothes as well as dresses for mom. There is also wardrobe options for dads and siblings that you are more than welcome to use. You will receive a prep-guide prior to the session with favorite shops, personal styling tips and suggestions on colors and prints that I have found photograph best. 

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY SESSION? 

A sneak peek (or two!) will be posted on my social media pages within one week of the session. About 2 weeks after, you will receive a custom slideshow and preview gallery of all fully retouched images from the session. After viewing the slideshow you will choose from three collections of digital images + print credit. Once purchased, included number of digital images are available for immediate download. The online shop will then open where you can browse the beautiful artwork options such as heirloom albums, photo gifts, fine-art prints and custom framing to utilize your print credit.
