Baby’s First Year

One of our most popular photography packages for new parents is our Baby’s First Year Package.  It includes a maternity session (captured at 32-36 weeks into the pregnancy), a newborn session (captured within 7 days of birth), a 6 month session, and a 1 year session.  It is a great way to document highlights from a newborn’s first year of growth.  A more comprehensive option is to have your newborn photographed every month for an entire year.  We travel to your home for this signature offering and select a specific location within the home where the newborn will be photographed every month.  That way the background and setting stays consistent while the growth and development of your newborn is emphasized.  You have the option of having your newborn in the same exact outfit for each pose or to vary the outfits for each session.

Each monthly session lasts 10-15 minutes, with a 30 minute mini-session offered at 6 months and a full blown 1 hour session at the 1 year mark at our photography studio (after the 1 year photo is captured at your home to complete the series).  So 12 images in all with a 1 hour family session captured at the studio once the newborn reaches 1 year.  We then compile your favorite poses from each session into a collage which you have the option of purchasing as a framed photograph, a custom gallery wrap, or a modern print mounted on metal.  The final piece, which is mounted and ready to hang in your home, is offered as a 20×20, a 30×30, or a 40×40.

There are a number of ways to capture your newborn child and we enjoy customizing the experience to meet your needs.  Whether it is a comprehensive monthly documentation of your child, highlights throughout their first year, or focusing on those first days following their birth, the images and memories captured are sure to be treasured for many, many years.
