There’s a wonderful beauty seen when you can watch someone’s unique story unfold before your eyes. I’ve had the amazing joy of witnessing my beautiful friend and her gorgeous child grow together over time, from maternity now into her child’s first birthday. She has chosen to have me capture her daughter’s three milestones – 4, 8, and 12 months – as well as her maternity and newborn sessions. If you don’t remember my friend, here’s a bit of her back story: this close friend of mine is from White Plains, and works as a middle and high school math teacher, which means she’s brilliant – and brave! So brave, in fact, that she chose to have her child through in vitro fertilization, and it’s been one of the most wonderful decision she’s made. It has been a joy watching her change and grow in the best of ways, and it has been such a pleasure to capture every step.
Aside from the maternity and newborn sessions we’ve done together, we wanted to be sure to capture those big moments of her daughter’s life in a precious way. Across the sessions, we wanted to sprinkle in props to add even more to the cuteness level, with sequin bows and floral headbands. I love to surround a baby’s soft skin with soft furs and fabrics, and we played around with colors to create the perfect palette. My friend has such a creative mind, and she inspired a lot of scenes you’ll see in the photos below. We had a lot of fun with balloons, and with little lights in the background to give it a whimsical feel. Looking back through each of the portraits, it’s truly amazing to see the amount of growth that happens in such a short amount of time.
Because a child grows so fast, it makes it so important to capture those big milestones in their first year, and even before they enter the world! My lovely friend was intentional in doing this for her child, and now she has so many wonderful portraits to remember the times when her daughter was so tiny. Baby milestone sessions are the perfect way to remember those moments, and there are multiple packages to choose from! From all-inclusive sessions that go from the first month to the twelfth, or a first year package that covers the 4, 8, and 12 month milestones, like my friend chose, you have the option of choosing the best package for you!
Moments like these pictures below are so precious, and they deserve to be remembered forever. You can see more of the moments that I’ve captured in this Baby Milestone Session Gallery, to bet a better idea of what’s offered in the packages. My wonderful friend chose to tell her and her daughter’s story through these special moments, and I can do the same for you! Contact me here to get started, but be sure to look through the photos below first – they’ll make your day.
