Milestone Baby Sessions

 

Babies grow so fast in their first year! They grow so quickly from a squishy newborn, to a crawling and giggling sitter to a walking toddler with BIG personality. Milestone sessions are typically booked at the sitter stage (around 6 months old) and to celebrate baby’s first birthday. Of course, we can always add additional sessions (around 3 months and 9 months) to capture their growth even more. When booking your session, please let me know about your child’s typical nap times. The best time to schedule is right after baby wakes up (usually early in the morning or right after that first nap, around midday). The studio can be overwhelming for a sleepy baby.

Birthday session can be designed as elaborate or as simple as you choose. Have ideas? I’m always happy to talk to you about themes, colors and more to customize the session just for you and your baby. Sometimes we inclue a cake smash for babies that want to smash their cakes and others are not so into it, but we always capture some fun images to remember their personality in this moment. Smash sessions include a fully design birthday set, cake, bubble bath and outfit changes. I always recommending testing baby’s love of cake before the session to get them comfortable with the idea and to check for any potential allergies. Book your session a month before your baby’s birthday to guarantee images for invitations and presents.

I LOVE my job and there is no greater joy to me than being allowed to be such an important part of your life. The photos we create together will not only be important to you now, but someday, they will be one of the most priceless reminders of exactly who your family was at this stage in life. Your baby will grow so fast and it’s so important to be remember their tiny features, squishiness, and the amazing love during this very special time.

BABY SAFETY AND SESSION DETAILS

Part of what makes me different from other photographers is my dedication to your family’s safety. During your session, I will pose and handle your baby with the utmost care. Your baby’s safety is always my top priority. I have mentored in person and trained with the leading newborn photographers from around the world. I have education on the proper handling of your baby, safe photography practices, including compositing images and keep the studio, as well as all props clean and sanitized in between each session. I will play, entertain and ensure baby is kept happy during your session.

STUDIO

I am also dedicated to providing you with both the experience of a fully designed session and creating custom portrait art of you and your family. Newborn sessions take place within my cozy studio located in Natick, MA. My studio is packed full of backdrops, props, wardrobe, accessories and more so I can create something beautiful and personalized just for your baby. I love to hear your ideas! And if there is something I don’t have in the studio, I’ve been know to custom order from my talented vendors who create handmade pieces for my sessions.

MORE THAN A DISC

In addition to digital images, you will have the option of purchasing beautiful archival prints, wall art pieces, albums and other unique products to display, share and pass down these portraits to your children and grandchildren All my sessions include an ordering appointment scheduled usually within a couple weeks of your session to view your images and discuss package options. I know we all love social media and sharing our digital images but I also know these images often get lost in the shuffle after just a few days. My second favorite part of my job (after the snuggling) is creating amazing pieces of wall art or albums that you will enjoy each and everyday. I absolutely love sitting with a cup of coffee in the morning and seeing the canvas I have of my boys up on my wall. They’ve already changed so much from that moment and I will never get tired of seeing their precious baby faces. I hope to create something just as special for you as well.
