No matter what age or stage we're celebrating, these sessions featuring your little humans as they grow are SO much fun. We'll play, dance, eat cake, or do whatever brings babe the most joy! Milestone sessions typically take place in my in-home studio space, but they can happen anywhere you'd like! They can also include shots with mom and dad, siblings, and the whole family together.

special pricing and priority booking available FOR MY newborn CLIENTS!

Milestone session investment begins at $600. Your session will include 20 digital images that you will select from a proofing gallery soon after your session day. You'll have the option to upgrade your gallery to include additional images as well as heirloom product credit, if desired! Sample heirloom products will be available to touch and feel immediately following your session.

ALL milestone sessions include an access code to my online wardrobe styling service in addition to my client closet of outfits, and a full-length session with up to 2 outfits for baby. We can add on a custom smash cake to your session for an additional fee, or you are welcome to provide your own!

I don't know yet if I want any physical heirloom products. 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. If budget is a limiting factor, I am happy to provide guidance on the best consumer retailers to print your high resolution images. Or if you want to invest in something truly unique, your gallery shop will be filled with several gorgeous heirlooms to choose from.

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 clients and Fresh 48/newborn clients, any subsequent milestone sessions throughout baby's first year may be booked at a 50% discount. For new clients, any 2+ milestone sessions can be bundled for an overall 20% discount. 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!
