The one year session is another major milestone session that captures baby around their first birthday. For these sessions, we can include a cake for a cake smash. We can also plan to include a splash! We can add bubbles, some of the wooden toys available in the studio, or you can bring along a family heirloom to be photographed with baby.

Baby Milestone sessions are meant for capturing your little one at different stages of growth throughout their first year. Most clients will choose to capture two of the major milestones, a sitter session and a one year session. A sitter session typically takes place around 6-7 months or when baby is sitting unsupported. 

What is a baby Milestone Session?

My style is very minimalistic and timeless which allows the images to be focused on baby rather than the set up. For in-studio sessions, you can expect a set up with a white wall, white flooring, neutral colored props and wooden toys. We want baby to be the first thing we see in the images! Cake smash sessions typically take place around 12 months. I will provide a white cake stand and lots of wardrobe options for baby. All you need to bring is a cake and a cute baby!

Let's get messy...

Cake smash

To keep the session fun and playful for your baby, you have the option to include our bubble machine or choose from a variety of our wooden toys. You can also choose to include a white tub for a bubble bath with rubber duckies! I have lots of options to keep baby having fun so we can capture a genuine smile. A swim diaper and white diaper cover are the perfect wardrobe options for these sessions. 

Is there anything cuter?

Baby splash

Sunset sessions are a beautiful way to photograph your baby's milestone session. To capture that stunning golden hour light we will schedule your session one hour before sunset. I will help you decide on the perfect location that fits your vision for your session, as well as your vision for your artwork. Some of my favorite locations include Forest Park, Bush Wildlife, and Towne Park. However, I love when clients invite me to a location that is unique and special to them. 

Wild and free...

First Year Collective sessions can take place anywhere, including my studio where we use simple, clean backdrops to keep the focus on your little one and their personality. For studio sessions we can plan traditional portraits as well as a cake smash, a bubble bath, or incorporate a variety of wooden toys available in the studio to keep baby smiling and having fun!




WHAT IS THE FIRST YEAR COLLECTIVE?

heirloom albums

Showcase your favorite images in a custom designed Heirloom Album that can be pasted down through the generations. Many families enjoy creating an album that highlights each milestone, giving a library of memories to their children. Others choose to create a First Year Album that is built overtime and completed with their baby's 12 month session. 

FIRST YEAR COLLECTIVE MEMBERS RECEIVE AN ALBUM CREDIT TOWARD EACH SESSION

FRAMED STATEMENT ART

I offer custom framing services and my goal is to give my clients the most archival framing possible. The absolute best way to protect your prints for the longest amount of time is by getting them properly framed behind glass, conservation acrylic or museum acrylic. This gives the highest level of protection against UV light and dust. 

BIRTH 
ANNOUNCEMENTS

Let me take this task off your to do list and create a custom birth announcement using your favorite images to announce your new family to the world.
