Baby's First Year
In the blink of an eye, your sleepy newborn has turned into a charming little person! I offer sessions for babies age 4-12 months only to clients who choose a Membership when reserving their Newborn session. Two recommended stages for Membership clients are when baby is sitting independently, usually around 7-8 months, and around their first birthday, when they are often starting to stand on their own or with your help.
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.
Save yourself the time of looking through galleries of other photographers because Brittany is absolutely the best choice. She captured stunning photos of our newborn baby and I could not be happier with the entire experience. She was so easy to work with, flexible with scheduling, and even offers client wardrobe options. She made everything as easy as possible and I would absolutely, without a doubt, hire her again and again!
Brittany was very supportive through the whole process even helping me mock up a gallery wall with her professional software. She personally delivered high quality matted prints and framed photos after she made sure they were perfect. The matted prints made excellent gifts for the grandparents and my gallery wall looks gorgeous. Working with her was such a great experience.
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 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!
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.
I like focusing on milestones like sitting, standing or crawling rather than exact ages. This ensures a nice variety of images across sessions. My favorite stage is probably when baby can sit independently but is not yet crawling (~7-8mos+); babies at this age are usually quite cheerful. We'll also consider the season and weather when deciding the timing of outdoor sessions.
Yes, I love seeing my littlest clients grow! My Membership allows you to reserve 2-4 sessions over baby's first year for one discounted fee. Sessions include Newborn plus your choice of any/all of the following: Maternity, Sitting, Standing. I limit Memberships to one due date per month to ensure availability.
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 you provide at the end. 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.
