One Year Milestone Session in Studio

Investing In Portrait Sessions

Milestone sessions for your baby are one of the best investments you can make when deciding which portraits to have done of your family. They capture the sweetness of the newborn days to the essence of their childhood. What would be an otherwise fleeting time where your baby grows up in the blink of an eye, becomes tangible magical memories of every important milestone in their first year. When you have beautiful imagery to look back on, time does not seem as much of a thief.

Capturing Childhood During The First Year

I have been photographing Conor since he was in his mama’s tummy and have captured all his milestones along the way. From newborn, 6 month, Santa session, to his 1st year portraits, I have watched him grow and have seen the love and light he brings to his parents! I adore him so much. He even took some of his very first steps at our last session, and we were lucky enough to have captured it on camera.

Why You Should Do Multiple Portrait Sessions

It’s so sweet to see families come back for several sessions throughout the year, building a gorgeous and timeless collection of heirloom-worthy portraits. Multiple sessions allows you to have plenty of images to create into an album, frame and hang on your walls, and give as gifts to family members throughout the year. Photos will last sometimes longer than memory does – in which case, you’d want to have the best, highest quality work to look back on! Booking multiple sessions, or being a part of my Collective Membership Program, allows you to turn memories into timeless pieces of art that flow together beautifully.

The lighting is warm and dreamy, the studio is always set to a comfortable temperature, and my collection of heirloom-worthy wooden toys and props are the perfect addition to add whimsy and timelessness to your portraits.
