Newborn sessions are typically held during your baby's first few weeks of life. I only book a handful of newborn sessions per month to make sure I have time to dedicate to my littlest clients, so I suggest booking these while you are still pregnant. These littles change SO FAST and it's such a treat to get to capture them so new!



Milestone sessions can be used for any stage you want to document from maternity to first birthday. Most often, I suggest considering stages...pregnancy, smiling baby, sitting baby, etc. Each stage is just so fun!


first birthday

First birthday sessions can be held in studio with the option of a cake smash as a portion of you session. If you'd like to include parents or siblings, let's find a beautiful outdoor space together!
