As a photographer, nothing makes me happier than being trusted to document the journey of a family and to see little ones grow throughout the year. I’ve been fortunate to have documented the first year of many of our couples. For some we have become their photographers for life from their engagement pictures to their child’s first birthday. So much happens the first year. I’ve gone through it once with my son and am almost mid-way through my daughter’s first year. It’s all a blur. Though I hold on to many memories, looking back at the pictures that I’ve taken throughout the years transport me back to those moments—the big milestones and even the little things we sometimes forget—their mannerisms, facial expressions, how they looked when they scooted across the couch. It’s all so important and deserves to be documented in a meaningful way.
Here is one example of the first year…newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and one year.
// The Collections //
We offer two collections Belly to Baby (maternity and newborn sessions) and Belly to Toddler (maternity, newborn, 3, 6, 9 months and one year sessions plus an album of favorites).
// More About the Sessions //
Maternity sessions are a wonderful way to celebrate the anticipation and excitement of the time before the baby arrives. I always joke that it’s like an engagement session with a bump. It’s a wonderful time for couples to enjoy time with each other before life changes. // This session lasts from one hour to 90 minutes.
3, 6, 9 Months
The one year session is very similar to my regular portrait sessions. Though the baby is the main focus, this is also a time to celebrate the wonderful one year milestone as a family. Some of my include balloons, posters and other fun props. Others do a cake smash at the end of the session. // This session lasts from one hour to 90 minutes.
// Other details //
