Baby's First Year Portraits

Your new baby changes so much during the first year. Each phase of development is an opportunity to capture enduring memories and important milestones. Experience the joy of knowing you are capturing those unique and fleeting moments. The baby plan includes a photographic memoir of the first year of your baby's life in three separate photo sessions.

Tummy Time:
The first session takes place at three to four months old when your baby can lift their head. We focus on all the little details – the hands, fingers, toes. If desired, for an additional fee, we can feature the special bond between baby and parent. Mom and Dad often are dressed in long sleeved black shirts and dark pants or jeans. Your baby can be bare, in a diaper with a diaper cover, or in a cloth diaper.

Sitting Stage:
This is a time to highlight the dawn of your baby’s independence. Your child should be sitting independently for this session. Appropriate clothing includes: diaper covers; bloomers; overalls; tulle skirts; or a simple solid-colored outfit.

First Steps:
At the final session we capture the essence of your baby’s personality. Choose either a formal or casual session. Clothing ideas include: cowboy outfits, a fireman’s hat, a tutu, or a party dress. Baby can be photographed eating their first birthday cake wearing a party hat.

Each session is approximately 1 hr. depending on baby's needs and whether the session is done in the studio, or on location. As with all our portrait sessions time is scheduled for a Design Session to review and choose images to order prints or albums. Images must be ordered within 30-days of each session to receive Baby Plan pricing. All members who will be ordering artwork are welcome to the viewing sessions in order to facilitate the ordering process. Please note that we do not present images online or send digital proofs via email. We take pride in delivering the best quality imagery and care about helping our clients make decisions on how to best display their images.

All three sessions must be of the same child. A sibling or parent may be added for an additional fee per person. Program expires when the child turns 15-months. You will be briefed before each session on what to bring, a good time of day for babies pictures and different framing options to best display the session images.

Individual baby sessions are also available.
