Hello and Welcome!!
As a new or expecting mom, you are on one of the most important and moving journeys you will ever experience.
Creating a life and loving your newborn with every fiber of your being will change you forever. This is a life event worth capturing and preserving!
With these first-year mini sessions, we make it easy for you to record, relive, and share with your child the story of their arrival.
Maternity mini sessions
The ideal time to come in for a maternity session is between weeks 32 and 36 of pregnancy. You have a choice of in-studio or outdoor session. To make the session as easy as possible for you, we have built a lovely selection of gowns, wraps, and accessories that are sure to make you feel fabulous. Our experience in making women look and feel great in front of the camera will ensure you really enjoy the experience on top of having beautiful images that help you remember this special time. Spouses and baby’s siblings are welcome!
Maternity session fee is $250 (+tax) and includes 10 digital files – 45min
Newborn mini sessions
These sessions are done in our Cordova Bay studio. Mini sessions are for baby only. Baby is wrapped for most of the session and we create a beautiful selection of images with close-ups, little details and overall portraits to really highlight how small and sweet your baby is in his first weeks in the world. We book these newborn sessions for 5 – 10 days after your due date and readjust once your little one arrives if necessary. In our studio, we have all the props, wraps, and adorable accessories needed to help create incredible images where baby is still the center of attention.
Newborn session fee is $250 (+tax) and includes 10 digital files – 60min — add $100 to include baby’s siblings —add $200 to include baby’s siblings and parents
– 1 to 2 months at this point you’ve passed the newborn stage but that doesn’t mean we can’t capture amazing portraits of baby that will last a lifetime! Though baby sleeps less and maybe more aware and sensitive at this stage, you do get more eye contact, more smiles, and baby has filled in a bit more. They are absolutely gorgeous at this stage.
– 3 to 4 months when baby is strong enough to lie on her tummy and lift up her head. The special details to look for at this stage are parent recognition, first laughs and grins, strong eye contact, and a better proportion with head to body ratio so baby can hold up their heads and even rollover. The smiles you get at this stage will melt your heart!
– 6 to 7 months is when baby should be able to sit up unassisted. Baby is packing on the pre-crawl weight so this is when we often see big pudgy leg, arm rolls, and round rosy cheeks. This is my personal favorite stage. Baby’s are absolutely stinkin’ adorable at this point! The sitter phase is also filled with other exciting milestones like first teeth, introduction to first foods, giants smiles, early verbal skills, and fine motor skills like holding toys and toes.
12th months is obviously a huge milestone and worth celebrating. If you want to go all out, we offer the cake smash session (details here) but we also have one last mini session available to complete the most significant year of your baby’s life! Not only has baby gone through an epic learning curve, but you also start seeing the hints of the toddler and child he/she will become. The big milestones to look forward to at this stage is baby’s first steps, maybe a word or two like “mamma” and “dadda”. Baby is also understanding a few important words at this stage.
Milestone sessions are $250 (+tax) and includes 10 digital files
