The Baby Plan
New baby? Fair warning - the next year of your life will fly by in a blur. I am here to help you ensure that each precious stage is captured and preserved so you will never forget those tiny toes, sweet smiles, chubby rolls, and priceless expressions.
The Baby Plan consists of three distinct milestone sessions. Baby Plan members receive access to special pricing and unique products created just for baby plan members to highlight the changes that occur throughout your little one’s first year.
The Smiling Session typically takes place around 4-5 months of age, when baby can do push-ups and comfortably hold his/her head up for longer periods of time - and, of course, when he/she is full of genuine, adorable SMILES!
The Sitting Session typically takes place around 7-8 months of age, when baby can sit up without assistance but is not yet crawling. This is when that irresistible personality really starts to emerge!
The Standing Session is scheduled around 10-11 months, or near baby’s first birthday. Baby can typically stand independently and is just beginning to explore on foot. This is the perfect time to catch those standing shots before they’re really on the move! Looking for some birthday fun? This session may be upgraded to include a cake smash.
About your session
All milestone sessions take place in my home studio in Miller, SD.
Each milestone session lasts 30-45 minutes (baby only) and includes a gallery of approximately 15 fully edited images to be selected from at your viewing and ordering appointment. All products and digital files are purchased separately at this appointment approximately two weeks following your session.
After baby's birth is the perfect time to join the Baby Plan to ensure availability. I accept a very limited number of bookings to ensure each client receives the best experience possible. I will make a tentative booking for each milestone based on your baby's birth date and wait to hear from you when baby has reached each developmental stage.
Each and every session is carefully planned and custom designed to fit your personal style and needs. At your pre-session consultation, we will discuss all of the details that help determine the outcome of your session, including color design/style, outfit selection, and how the images will be displayed in your final, year-end product. The studio is fully stocked with adorable outfits and accessories for you to browse at your appointment.
Your viewing and ordering appointment will be scheduled approximately two weeks following each session. At this appointment you will return to the studio, where you will be to enjoy a slideshow of the images in your gallery. We will then take time to review the images carefully and discuss the products available to you.
I will walk you through the selection process and help you design a beautiful, timeless year-end product that is perfect for your home and will be cherished for a lifetime and beyond. It is at this time that we will finalize your portrait order, so all decision makers should be present.
