Baby SESSION DESCRIPTIONS & PRICING INFORMATION (for Babies 3 - 12 months)

Let’s change things up!

Traditionally, first year baby photos are completed at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months. When I started this business, I followed this 4 session guideline. After a year, I noticed that the 9 and 12 month session looked very similar and many babies are not sitting up at 6 months (which was disappointing to parents). It was time for a change.

Based on these experiences, I came up with my own recommended session times that truly capture the growth of the first year: 4 month, 8 months, and 12 months sessions.

4 MONTHS - TUMMY TIME SESSION

This session is a such wonderful time for your first session because your baby’s personality has now developed and you can see it shine through the camera. During these sessions, we will work on capuring their smile and their ability to hold up their heads.

8 MONTHS - SOLID SITTER SESSION

Laughing, clapping, sitting and maybe even crawling will be the focus this session. Your child will be a solid sitter by this session too - a great way to get some amazingly sweet photos of thier face and big smiles. Music will be played and your child and I may have a fun game of peek-a-boo to get some smiles. If your baby has new teeth, I will work on getting some awesome smile shots to show them off.

12 MONTHS - FIRST BIRTHDAY OR CAKE SMASH SESSION

Happy Birthday! This session is a celebration of an amazing year accomplished. We will photograph your little one sitting, standing and showing off all they have learned over the year. You may opt to book a cake smash and document your child’s cute reactions and first bites of cake. It’s so much fun!

My studio has studio ready clothing for your baby to wear during the session.  Feel free to bring your own clothing or use mine.

Pricing: All Baby Session listed below are $495.
