One of our most popular portrait options for couples who are expecting is our Baby’s First Year Package. It includes maternity, newborn, 6 month, and 12 month photo sessions. We capture the maternity session between 32-36 weeks into the pregnancy and attempt to coordinate with our couples to capture the newborn session within 7 days of birth. These are the suggested and optimum times for the photo sessions. Then we re-connect at 6 and 12 months for the remaining 2 sessions.
Portrait sessions are offered in the comfort of your home, at our photography studio in NE Portland, or at a local park or location of your choice. The flexibility in location gives a nice variety to the work and enables us to capture you regardless of the weather conditions. Maternity sessions are great at our portrait studio or at an outdoor location. Newborn sessions are recommended indoors at our studio or at your home. This enables us to control the temperature providing your newborn with maximum comfort. We then recommend varying the locations for the 6 and 12 month sessions suggesting outdoor locations whenever possible.
Some couples choose just the newborn session. Others choose the newborn and 12 month sessions. It varies from couple to couple and that is why we offer maximum flexibility in the sessions you choose. We build a portrait package that best suits your needs.
For Kim and Siemke, documenting their daughter’s first year was extremely important. Ask any parent and they will tell you that the first year just flies by and that their little ones grow way too quickly. Kim and Siemke really wanted to preserve this time by having portrait sessions scheduled every 2 months throughout their daughter Giuliana’s first year. We built a custom Baby’s First Year Package that included all of these sessions. Here are some highlights from Giuliana’s 2 most recent portrait sessions (the first at our portrait studio and the second outdoors along the Portland waterfront area).
Next month we will be connecting to capture Giuliana’s 1st birthday party celebration. I am suspecting that there will be cake and that Giuliana is going to like it quite a bit!
