I believe that all milestones are to be celebrated! Bring me those babies and let's capture their chubby cheeks as a sitter, first birthday, and everything in between!
A session before your baby is about ten months is a sitter or milestone session. I recommend bringing your baby in for a sitter session just after she starts sitting up. The best time to schedule these is around 4 months so that we make sure to have time to adjust at the 6 month mark. Typically, the safest place for these sessions is my studio where we have access to my studio prop and wardrobe collection. Much like a newborn session, you won't need to bring a thing except you and your sweet baby!
My style with these sessions is very simple. I use soft colors, neutrals, and textures that are both natural and elegant. This way, only your baby is the focus of your portraits!
Clients are welcome to choose between studio or outdoor portraits for one year cake smash or celebration sessions. The best time to contact me about your cake smash is when your baby turns 9 months so that we have plenty of time to get you on the books! I like to have cake smashes done aroud the 11 month mark so that you have your portraits in plenty of time for birthday parties. It also nice to book early so that we have a little flexibilty in scheudling before your baby starts walking (or running) away from the camera!
I find that many moms love the idea of an outdoor cake smash! However, please be aware that all outdoor sessions occur within an hour of sunset or sunrise. Sunset can be a little late for some babies in the spring and summer months. All cake smash sessions include the use of my antique white high chair also!
