I don't know yet if I want an album or wall art. Will I be able to just get the digitals?

You sure can! While I am a full service photographer and specialize in designing tangible art, I will never push products on you if that's not your jam. Your product credit can be applied to the purchase of additional digital files (though you may find it more cost effective to upgrade collections as opposed to purchasing a few additional files)! I am also happy to provide guidance on the best consumer retailers to print your high resolution images.

What ages do you typically photograph during baby's first year?

While I've photographed babies at all ages, the most common "milestone" type sessions are usually around 6-8 months (ideally when baby can sit unassisted but is not quite crawling), and of course at one year, a few weeks before their first birthday! 

Can I include my big kids?

Absolutely! I love creating family-centered milestone sessions where the whole fam gets to celebrate baby growing up.

How much is it for you to provide a smash cake? Can we bring our own props?

Custom smash cakes provided by my baker range from $75-$100. As far as props go, I like to keep the focus on baby and tend to avoid the use of too many props! But if you have something that is meaningful to you, we will absolutely include it. If you're envisioning an elaborate backdrop and full setup of themed props, I may not be your girl...but I would be happy to point you toward some of my amazing fellow photographers who specialize in that kind of look! :)

Can I book a "Baby's First Year" type of package?

Absolutely! For birth and newborn clients, milestone sessions can be combined under one digital/print collection (simply pay separate session fees). It's common for parents booking multiple milestone sessions to then have an album designed of baby's full first year to keep as an heirloom!
