Milestones – A Collection of Portraits including Maternity, Newborn, and the First Year

July 26, 2022


Imagine this with me if you will – you’re planning to welcome the newest little love-of-your-life into the world. You might be a little overwhelmed with all the fancy gadgets you find yourself bringing home and maybe you’re even taking a class or two to understand the entirely new shift that is about to take place. In all the hubbub of prepping for baby, oftentimes, I’ve found that photography is the last thing on your mind. Or maybe it’s not the last thing, but searching for a photographer to do each different session is quite a task and you simply don’t have the time. But this is your legacy and someday when those babes are grown, you’ll be reaching for that photo album to remember how small they used to be. That’s where I come in. Consider me a one-stop shop for the next couple years. From maternity, to newborn and the first-year milestone, I’ve designed a package that includes them all. I was inspired by my career in the wedding industry and my previous work as an event coordinator. Couples plan out their wedding photos meticulously, in all-inclusive packages. Why shouldn’t a new baby warrant the same attention? I’ve loved family and newborn photography for a long time, so it seemed like the natural next-step was to bridge the gap and offer an inclusive package for families.

Milestone families can expect an organized process through the first year. If you’ve ever been one of my wedding couples, this process will look familiar! You’ll also have access to a special guide full of family-photo tips that I’ve gathered over the years. Your portraits will include a maternity session, lifestyle newborn images, and a first-year shoot. Additional sessions can be added on if, for example, you wanted to document your baby shower as well. And finally, once you are a part of my milestone family, you’ll receive exclusive access to mini session shoots and special discounts off of full sessions and products.

My ‘why’ with photography was always to hold time still and capture those moments that we wish we could live in forever. I love capturing your story in an artistic and authentic way, whether it’s the happy tears you shed on your wedding day, or the awe-struck smiles as you soak up your little newborn.

My milestone sessions are almost fully booked for this year and I am currently booking for next. I plan to take a limited amount of these sessions each year, so be sure to inquire and get on my calendar!
