Darling and Timeless
Because your baby won't be little for long
Baby's first year is magical, and it goes by much too quickly. The days of your baby learning to hold up their head, rolling over and sitting up are quickly surpassed as they take those precious first few steps into toddlerhood and beyond. My baby photography sessions are designed to grow with your baby and capture every adorable detail along the way.
I photograph your baby in my Randolph portrait studio. I carry multiple backdrops, unique photography props, and darling handmade baby outfits and accessories. These photo sessions are cute and sweet. Together, we will create clean and classic photos of your little one that you will cherish long after the baby days are behind you.
The first opportunity for a baby portrait session is between three to five months of age. I call this a tummy time session. We'll start by capturing images of your baby laying on their back and looking up at the camera. They may also do other cute things like sucking their thumb, grabbing their toes, and rolling over. Then we'll turn them on their belly for a little bit of tummy time if they'll allow it. Some babies will even hold their head up to look around and give us some adorable smiles!
My favorite time to photograph babies is around the mid-year mark. This milestone session can be scheduled anytime between six to nine months, once baby can sit up independently. These are also commonly referred to as sitter sessions. Babies are usually very curious around this stage, not to mention very smiley! We'll get some adorable images of them sitting up and interacting. Some may even begin to crawl. I think it's a perfect time to get the best images of your baby!
The first birthday is the biggest baby milestone! This is when you will sit back and wonder where the year has gone and marvel at how quickly your baby has grown. I definitely recommend a photo session for your baby's first birthday. Some parents choose a cake smash, which is a photo shoot to document your baby's first taste of cake. Others opt to skip the cake and do a classic first birthday portrait session instead. The ideas are endless, and we will customize the perfect set just for you!
Babies are the cutest, and I love to create clean, classic portraits that captures their natural beauty and sweet expressions. I keep the backdrops uncomplicated and use a few simple, beautiful props to help bring out a polished and professional look. I keep a studio wardrobe with adorable baby outfits and accessories that are uniquely handmade and oh-so-cute, so that you don’t even need to worry about what to wear. My style of baby photography aims to capture the precious, fleeting moments of your little one before they aren’t little anymore.
There is no wrong time to have your baby's portraits taken! I recommend at least one or two sessions during baby's first year. If you're unsure, I recommend a Sitter Session and a First Birthday Session. This really allows us to document your little one at different stages and see how much they grow. You don't want to miss out on any of those precious moments!
Yes! We can bundle two or more sessions together to create the perfect "watch-me-grow" portrait plan for your baby. Contact me to find out more.
The right outfit can give your photos a special touch. I carry a darling wardrobe in boy and girl 6-18 month sizes. My outfits are handmade and absolutely unique; you won't find them in stores. For baby girls, I carry beautiful matching headbands as well. Dressing them up is easy and fun!

After your portrait session we will have an ordering appointment to view and choose the images from your session. Art and files are sold separately; see the pricing page for investment options.
