In the blink of an eye, your sleepy newborn has turned into a charming little person! Milestone sessions are perfect for documenting your baby’s budding personality over the first year. Two of my favorite stages are when baby is sitting, usually around 6 months, and then again around their first birthday, when they are often starting to "cruise" while standing up or even taking their first momentous steps.
I was a little hesitant to do a maternity shoot, but because I knew it was a memory I would want to keep, I decided to just do it and I am SO glad I did. Brittany made me feel so comfortable and offered dress choices that she knew would be my style. During the shoot she helped me to look my best in the most natural way, and the photos came out so beautifully, she captured a “glow” I didn’t even realise I had!
Ordering products was a breeze! Brittany helped us make final decisions on which photos to use for our album and which family portrait to frame. She was sooo patient, and provided her honest and professional opinion without being pushy which was so refreshing. We received our products this week and they were PERFECT! Amazing quality!
Brittany was incredibly understanding and flexible! She’s a mom and completely relates to it all. Our images reflect our experience - beautiful, loving and a great moment in time. I love seeing the images of my newborn, whom she spent 20 minutes rocking to sleep. She is a one-of-a kind photographer and I HIGHLY recommend her.
Finding Brittany was the best thing that could’ve happened! She provided a beautiful wardrobe for my family to wear, that I selected from samples. On the day of the shoot she was kind, warm and professional. She was also super patient when we had to stop for me to nurse and truly gave me all the time I needed.
I loved working with Brittany for our newborn photoshoot for my daughter. She was easy to work with, thorough, KIND (important postpartum!), and she is so talented. We are IN LOVE with our photos of our baby. She was wonderful with our shy and cranky two year old as well. I completely recommend using Brittany, We are so happy we went with her!
I like focusing on milestones like sitting, standing or crawling, rather than exact ages. This ensures a nice variety of images from one session to the next and allows baby's personality to shine through. My two favorite are the sitting (~6mos+) and standing (~1yr) milestones. Most parents get in touch with me ahead of time and when baby is ready, we pick a date.
Yes! I offer a First Year Plan that covers Maternity, Newborn, Sitting and One Year. I love seeing my littlest clients grow (too fast!). One of my personal favorite heirlooms is a Baby's First Year Album with images from each session all wrapped up in one beautiful package. See my Info page for details.
I'm always happy to incorporate special items in your session. I typically focus the majority of the session on natural, timeless portraits, then bring in any additional items, like a small prop or simple cake, at the end if desired. But if you have your heart set on an elaborate theme and would like that to be the primary focus, you may find a better fit with a photographer who specializes in themed sessions.
