One Year Milestone Photos

I have been photographing Olivia since she was in her mama’s tummy, and you know what that means – her mama is a part of my Collective Membership Program! This is the easiest way to make sure you capture all of your child’s best milestones as they grow. We have captured this sweet mama’s maternity, Olivia’s newborn, 6 month, Santa, and 1 year portraits. They also attended my Motherhood Event a few weeks ago and took the sweetest mommy and me portraits together. Little Olivia is such a doll! We celebrated her first birthday portraits with a special cake and wardrobe styling for both mom and Olivia.

Dressing Your Baby For Portraits

As many of you know, I have a gorgeously curated collection of stylish dresses and gowns for mamas to wear during their family sessions. But, I also style the entire family – down to your little ones! My Child Wardrobe Collection contains thoughtfully chosen heirloom pieces for babies up to age 5. I always search for pieces that evoke a sense of nostalgia and timelessness, with classic colors and softest materials. I also have a select handful of baby accessories and handcrafted wooden toys that we can also use in your child’s portrait session.

Documenting Significant Milestones With The Collective Membership

The more sessions you book, the more your tiny love will be accustomed to having their portrait taken. My Collective Membership Program is the very best option to choose if you are wanting to freeze all of the milestones in their first year of life. Typically we will do your maternity session, and then your little one’s newborn/6 month/1 year portraits. This membership package comes with discounts, free prints, and priority booking for each milestone. It is the most popular option with my clients! If you’d love to find out more about joining the Collective Membership, send me a message.

First birthday’s are a very significant occasion for your little one, and for you! You made it through your baby’s first year, and watched them grow from your belly into a their own little person. That first year of their childhood is so magical and fleeting, and is a season to savor as much as you can. To put your little love’s first year portrait session in the books, please contact me asap!
