Getting Started

Every baby grows at their own pace, and each milestone is a celebration.

The Photoshoot

My milestone photoshoots are gentle and baby-centric. We create a calm, playful environment where your baby can be themselves, ensuring that I capture natural expressions and candid moments. I work at your baby’s pace, taking breaks as needed, making the experience enjoyable for both you and your little one.

Image Editing

After the photoshoot, I carefully edit each image to bring out the best in your baby’s milestone moments. My editing process is subtle and sensitive, enhancing the natural charm and character of your baby, while preserving the authenticity and innocence of these early stages.

Package Options

Each package can be purchased separately giving you the flexibility to choose which and how many stages to capture. These packages are designed to document a beautiful, lasting record of your baby’s incredible first year.
