The first year of your baby's life just flies by! I have 3 kids of my own and each one seems to grow up faster and faster. Having a plan for portraits during those first few months keeps you on top of photos and capturing those milestones on time. We will customize your whole year ahead of time, choosing locations, sets, themes and planning for any special requests.
The Milestones Package includes either a Mini-Maternity or a Fresh 48 session. At about 30-34 Weeks you can choose to do a Mini-Maternity Session, which is a 30 minute, mama only session at the studio. This Mini-Maternity session includes 10 Digital Files. There is an upgrade option available to add siblings and spouse as well for an additional cost. If you'd rather, you can wait until after baby is born and we'll do a Fresh 48 Session at the hospital or birth center. This is a 30 minute, simple shoot at the hospital and also includes 10 Digital Files.
There are also 5 Full Sessions included in this Milestones Program. Two of these sessions can include family and sibling pictures. Most often families choose for those to be the newborn and the one year session, but it can really be any of them. Each full session lasts about 1-2 hours, except for the newborn session which lasts about 3-4 hours. We are able to fit in 2-3 outfits for each session and can do either studio or outside photos, depending on the time of year and the age of your baby at the time. You will receive a disk of 15 digital files for each full session, and can add on additional images each time as well.
Each month during the first year we will also be taking a single "Sticker Shot" to capture their growth between sessions. This "Sticker Shot" is done during a super quick pop in session at the studio where we use the same set up each time to keep the background the same for each month, so the only thing changing is your baby. I provide the monthly stickers to go with these photos, or you can bring your own. These images are emailed to you within a couple days from the shoot.
At the end of the year, I'll provide you with a large album that includes all of your purchased images from the whole year in one book. This is a great time to order grandparent gifts such as smaller versions on this First Year Album, wall art collections and prints. You are provided with a Print Release for all the digital files you purchase, but to ensure professional quality prints and products, I still make ordering available through me at a reasonable price.
