Baby Plan Mini Maternity Session

Let's capture the beautiful glow of motherhood that starts even before your baby arrives with a maternity session either here in our studio or outside in nature.  We typically schedule our maternity sessions in the seventh month when mom is feeling refreshed and beautiful, and we love to pamper you so that you're absolutely radiant during your shoot.  We'll recommend a hair & makeup artist  to pamper our mamas and make you feel gorgeous, and we'll pose you in the most flattering ways to show off your bump and focus on the emotions surrounding your baby's anticipated arrival.  Ask us about our stunning maternity gowns available in the studio to enhance your session beautifully!

Baby Plan Deluxe Milestone Session

You'll notice right away how quickly your baby changes.  That tiny newborn baby will begin smiling, rolling over, laughing, sitting up, and crawling away before you know it!  We know how important these moments are to you, which is why we love to capture babies in the sitting up stage when they showcase their big grins, their bubbly laughter, and their fascination with the world around them.

Let's celebrate your baby's first birthday in style!  You've made it 365 days as parents, and it's time to do a little victory dance and shout from the rooftops... or at least, it's time to eat some cake!  (Because let's be honest, any time is a good time for cake!)  We'll start with some gorgeous family photos and focus on the amazing bond that has developed between you and your little one, followed by some sweet and simple baby photos before moving on to the grand finale... the cake smash!  Together we'll plan a custom session for your little one, complete with cake & decor to make it a truly one-of-a-kind celebration.
