I'm so glad we got a chance to talk!  To refresh your memory and to help you stay organized, the following few pages outline the Baby Steps Program and all of its separate session information in detail.  Please do not hesitate to ask any questions.  We are here to help in any way we can!

.3. Choosing Your Sessions

Now that we are on the path to being so very important to each other, let's do a little more narrowing down of what session you're looking for.  The following several pages will explain everything that is included in my Baby Steps Program.  Any session can also be booked individually.  Absolutely any session(s) you choose can be put onto payment plans. 


Maternity Session:  

These sessions are passionately creative.  Women all over the world celebrate pregnancy in different ways.  This is one of the best ways I know how to remember and cherish the start of a bond that will last a lifetime.

This session includes the use of all studio gowns, flower crowns and headpieces, up to 3 outfit changes and family images.  You will receive 15 fully, creatively edited final images in an online gallery, digital downloads and a personal print release.

Usually takes place in the 7th to 8th month of pregnancy.

A retainer of $175 is due the day of booking.  A final payment of $175 is due the day of the session.

Newborn (In Studio or In-Home Lifestyle)

One of life's culminating moments - having a baby.  There is no love like the love you have for your children.  And they will never be this teeny again.  Newborn sessions are a must.  Remembering them this little is so hard when they seem to just grow so quickly!

  

{7-14 days after birth}  In Studio sessions take place in my newborn room and usually last 2-3 hours.  You will have the use of all studio props, newborn outfits, hats, headbands and accessories.

Lifestyle sessions are held in a home with at least 1 room that has SIGNIFICANT natural light. Several wraps and session accessories will be brought to location.  These will not include any complex newborn poses.  

All Newborn sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am.     

This session also includes family images, 20 digital downloads from an online gallery and a personal print release.  

A retainer of $199 is due the day of booking.  An additional $199 is due the day of the session.




 










 













Sitter Sessions:

NO WAY they are this big already.  Time seems to skip whole days!  They're reaching amazingly cute little milestones - like chasing those tiny cheerios with their itty bitty fingers on the highchairs!  SO CUTE.  Let's remember it!

These sessions usually take place between 6 and 8 months.  For the most successful sitter session, the child must be able to sit on their own, unassisted for 30 seconds or more.  

This session can also be added into 3 and 9 month milestones.  A 3 month milestone will not have any "sitting up" images.  For purposes of a traditional "sitter" session, between 6 and 8 months is key.  

My studio has tons of cute little outfits, but I encourage you to bring something from home.  Something that is significant to you, your family, your profession.  Or maybe it's their favorite teddy bear or the little blanket they can't go anywhere without.  Let's make this about you and your sweet little one.

This session includes 7-12 final images in an online gallery, digital downloads and a personal print release.  Session may be upgraded to include family.  

A retainer of $99 is due the day of booking.  A final payment of $99 is due the day of the session.






Traditional 1 Year Session:

Wow.  The first year is already gone!  They have teeth!  Their big baby cheeks aren't so big anymore!  Their curls are getting so long!  We HAVE to get them in front of the camera for this!

I usually like to do these session pretty close to their birthday, but there is no hard set rule on that.  

You will have access to studio outfits and accessories.  This session includes 3 outfit changes and 2-3 simple sets.  I always encourage you to bring something from home that can make the session even more special and memorable for you.

Session includes 15 final images in an online gallery, digital downloads and a personal print release.  Session may be upgraded to include family.

A retainer of $110 is due the day of booking.  An additional $110 is due the day of the session.

Nursing Session

What an incredible bond.  The eye contact.  The tear that trickles down your cheek when you feed your baby and you're overwhelmed with unconditional love.  The sacrifice of your body, your time.  It is not to be taken lightly.  What a beautiful, POWERFUL thing.

{During baby's 1st year} 

You will have access to all the studio's gowns, flower crowns and headbands.  This session may take place in the studio or on location.  

Includes 10 fully, creatively edited final images in an online gallery, digital downloads and a personal print release.  This session may NOT be upgraded to a family session.

Cake Smash:

SO MUCH FUN!!  These sessions are the perfect way to celebrate your sweetheart turning ONE!  

These sessions includes a custom set that we will coordinate together,  a custom cake from Sweet Em's Cake Shoppe (up to $25), a bubble bath and several traditional clean shots of baby, as well.

This session is broken into 3 stages;

Clean Shots 

Cake Smash

Bubble Bath - take home a squeaky clean baby!  :)

You will coordinate a Pinterest board with a theme and color ideas that you like best.  We ask you to have your board to us at least 6 weeks before your session so we have time to purchase any necessary props.  We will take inspiration from your Pinterest board and create a fun, unique set that no one else will ever get.  Every single cake smash set is different!  

You are also responsible for ordering the cake (we pick it up) AT LEAST 2 weeks before the scheduled cake smash. 

This session includes 40 final images in an online gallery, digital downloads and a photo print release.  AND you get to take the cake home!!  

A retainer of $149 is due the day of booking.  An additional $149 is due the day of the session.

6. What to wear for your session:
Maternity Sessions:
These are usually a mix between traditional couple and family
shots and fine art images. For the first half of the session we will
focus on the couple and the family. Dress up a bit and have
everyone wear something a bit flattering. Try to coordinate colors
and prints so the eye can read the image of your family together
without being distracted by one person’s outfit. The last half will
focus on just the expecting mother. You will have access to my
maternity gowns, flower crowns and halos.
You will be asked to bring black leggings, a black tank top, 1 or 2
form fitting outfits of your choice, flip flops, makeup and hair
refreshers and a sense of adventure! Your significant other should
bring coordinating outfits and a black/grey t-shirt.
Newborn Sessions:
Parents, it is always encouraged that you participate in some of
the photos, as well, during your baby’s newborn session.
Although you may be very tired and the last thing you want to do
is get spruced up for the camera, it is a memory you may not want
to lose the chance to capture.
If you are up for some photo ops during your newborn session:
Moms bring a black or white tank top or shirt. Most photos will
not be full body images and this will create a nice clean look in the
photo. Make sure your hair and makeup are done just how you
like it.
Dads coordinate with the color mom is choosing to wear and
bring the same color shirt white or black. Sometimes men
choose to have their shirts off during these photos. Siblings
most of the time I will wrap the torsos of the other children with
matching fabric wraps in order to create a clean, unified, natural
look. If you have certain outfits you would like your children to
wear, that is fine, too.
I can’t wait to work with you! I absolutely love what I do and the people I get
to meet! I look forward to seeing what we can create together!
Love,
