‘And then, each step of the way, you simply cannot imagine loving them any more than you already do.’
The first year of life is one of the most momentous years in a baby (and parents) lives! Your scrumptious bundle of joy goes snuggly baby cuddles to smiling for the first time, sitting up all by themselves to standing and possibly even taking their first steps!
When I had my babies I thought I would have all the time in the world to document and create a first year collection of photos. I managed to do this for my first born for his first year and then that was it.
How amazing would it be to sit down after your child first year and have a collection of professionally capture photos from every month of their precious first year?
Let me help you!
"Baby's First Year Collection"
Twelve 15 minute professionally captured in-studio portrait sessions
Two digital images of your choice from each session
One pre consultation to discuss and plan the style of your images
One gorgeous photo album including your 24 images from the sessions
How much does it cost?
Each session is $129. This includes the session sitting and two professionally edited digital files. At the end of the 12 months you will receive your photo album (there is no additional charge for the album)
When do we start?
Ideally we would start the sessions when baby is 7-14 days old. If you have booked a newborn session with me then I will include this as part of your newborn session free of charge!
How many images can I choose from?
You will have 6-15 images from each session to choose you favourite two images from via an online gallery
What happens at the end of the 12 months?
I will get busy designing and building your photo album. All of your 24 images will be included in the album
What if I don't want an album?
No problem! You can choose 12 of your favourite images (one from each month) to be printed on to 20cm canvas squares so you can create a wall montage!
Can siblings/family members join in?
No this is just for your baby. You are welcome to add this as part of a portrait session though.
What happens if I move away before my baby turns one?
I will talk to you about your options if this happens. You will already have your digital files from the sessions you have already attended, and I will have some options for printing and displaying what you have.
How will you manage sickness?
I totally understand how often babies can be under the weather, teething, unwell. My studio is open weekdays and Saturdays so you simply need to contact me.
What happens if my baby completely cracks it in the session?
This can happen! Sometimes babies just aren't feeling it! Don't worry, I have a number of tricks up my sleeve in my studio to distract and entertain. I am really passionate about ensuring that you receive photos that you love, (although it can be funny to have the grumpy face!), I promise you that if we can't get some good options on the day we will reschedule. But please don't panic, just relax and have fun with me!!
