Baby’s First Year Portrait Package

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!

Maternity Session at the Studio

Natalie & Joe nailed their maternity session.  They wore great outfits, brought just the right amount of props, a fun energetic energy, and of course, their beloved doggie.  It made for the perfect combination of everything.  I loved Natalie’s choice in attire.  Her maternity shirt with the baby’s foot prints is truly precious.  Their dog is incredibly well behaved and took direction exceptionally well.  To be perfectly honest, I have never seen anything quite like it.  Each and every command was listened to and capturing portraits of all of them together was a total breeze.

Here are some highlights from Natalie & Joe’s maternity session at the studio:

Baby Demia

It’s always an honor to have the opportunity to capture portraits for a family.  The moments that are captured become the documented history that is told over time.  However, there is always something extra special when that family is someone who works in the wedding industry.  These are people who I have worked with on a number of occasions and who pour their heart into their work.  They are individuals who I have worked alongside under intense circumstances – you know – like making sure a wedding day flows together seamlessly.

So when I have the opportunity to connect on a more personal level, it becomes an even greater bond that is shared.  I love being able to check in on Facebook and Instagram and watch all of my clients’ families grow.  Life is quite the journey and it’s made extra special by the families that are created.  Misty with Luxe Event Productions and her husband Greg welcomed their first daughter into the world just a couple months ago.

Here are some highlights from Baby Demia’s newborn session at the studio.

Baby Theo

Shannon & Matt are a couple that we have connected with a number of times over the years.  We had the opportunity to fly out to Washington DC to photograph their engagement session when the cherry blossoms were in full bloom.  It was breath-takingly beautiful.  We photographed their wedding here in Portland and have connected more recently for a maternity and family portrait session.  Here are some of the highlights from our most recent time together at the photography studio:

Isabelle’s Bat Mitzvah Celebration

Having the opportunity to photograph Isabelle’s Bat Mitzvah celebration was certainly quite the treat.  The morning began with some portraits with family members at Congregation Beth Israel and concluded with an epic party celebration at Irving Street Kitchen in the evening.

Isabelle’s guests were treated to a festive evening filled with all sorts of entertainment and fun.  The table settings included numerous selfie-sticks for the guests and an area was set aside for henna artists Half Moon Henna, a couple of caricaturists from Barbara Pikus Caricatures, and the HappyMatic Photo Booth.  DJ Max Barenberg with Blackboard Music had the crowd out on the dance floor all night long.  This was also due in part to an incredible candy bar overflowing with candy treats from Sweets, Etc.

Izze Sodas were the signature drink of the evening for those under 21 with an assortment of cocktails made available at the bar for the adults.  Isabelle’s friends and family members gave some incredible speeches and later broke into song while Isabelle and various family members played the guitar and sang along.

The entire day was a fun celebration of Isabelle and all her accomplishments.  Here are some of our favorite images from her recent Bat Mitzvah celebration:
