The tiniest details matter to me because I know they matter to you. From their first home of 9 months, to holding them in your arms, to watching them crawl, and finally standing on their own; the journey of your little one’s first year is so special… and fast. It was important to Crista to make sure to document these precious moments for her second baby, Asher.
I am here to help hold onto these memories forever. Four beautiful motherhood membership sessions of love and growth.
For Crista’s first session we focused on just mom and her growing belly. It’s especially important to capture the calmness that comes before baby arrives. Our goal is to photograph this session between 30-34 weeks. We want you to feel comfortable and have that moment to pause.
For her second session we focused on the family, nursing with mom and those tiny details like baby’s toes. What a difference just a few months can make from when baby was in the womb. Sure those first two weeks with a new little one, and in Crista’s journey another child, can feel chaotic. But chaos isn’t what you’ll feel when you arrive at your session. With our curated studio wardrobe and multiple options for children, you won’t have to stress to find something to wear. I have lost track of how many second-time moms have come to me and shared what a difference this experience makes for them. Service is in my heart and soul.
For her third session, 6 month old baby Asher grew so much. The newborn period is short and sweet, but the sitting up milestone is where they begin to sprout a personality. It’s my absolute favorite (and you’ll hear me saying this a lot!). The smiles, eye contact, and connection with older brother Gavin is heart-melting. For the mothers that I photograph, there are a lot of parts that come together to provide the stress-free portrait experience they have come to love. One of them is the ability to show up for their session (yoga pants + top knot) and be pampered from start to finish. My hair and makeup team knows exactly how to give you a natural photo-ready look that is reflective of you. Afterwards, you’ll feel so put together you’ll want to go on a lunch date. And we say go for it!
For her fourth session, baby Asher turned one and was now fiercely crawling, standing, and giggling. This milestone is filled with so much excitement and energy. Crista also wore her mother’s dress as a special way to celebrate her memory. When we wrap up a first year luxury motherhood membership it is truly bittersweet, but in many ways a new beginning. We cannot wait to create an heirloom album, or framed gallery wall, to celebrate the moments we have captured over the last year. Our clients become like family to us; entrusting us to help tell their family’s story. Often we will continue our journey with yearly outdoor sessions. To become a family’s photographer for many years is an honor and something we never take for granted.
