any time is a good time to make memories, but here are a few of the more common sessions and the reasons these stages are so great for photos.

Milestones/ milestone Packages

Over the first year your baby is growing like no other time. I offer milestone packages at a discounted rate which includes the newborn session, 6 month session, first birthday cake smash, plus one additional mini session of your choosing.

Why 6 month photos?

The 6 month marker (or whenever your baby is sitting up) is so fun for photos! Your baby is a lot more sturdy, can sit unsupported, or close to it, and doesn't run away. This age you have the most captive audience you might ever have. Add some bubbles, a squeaky noise, and some goofy faces and typically we end up with some great big smiles or funny expressions.

Who doesn't love a good cake in the face? The cake smash is a fun birthday celebration that includes some great 1 year portraits, pre-planned between parents and photographer, and we end it by letting baby play with cake!

The Newborn Session

If you are looking for a classic newborn session, timing is important. Newborn babies are incredibly sleepy, but after they pass about the 10 day mark that starts to change. Babies older than 10 days will be far more fussy. If you don't care about the posed newborn photos and are more into the organic and lifestyle type of sessions, then timing can be a little bit more flexible. Newborn sessions typically take place in my Hanson studio or in clients' homes. The session takes approximately 1-2 hours and includes lots of breaks for feeding and changing if needed.
