Your Baby's First Year
So many changes happen to your baby during their first year. As a mother of three children, I know how fast they change. Being able to watch them grow with you is the biggest privilege! The Baby's First Year Plan is a package of sessions to capture your baby at every milestone - 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and then to celebrate their First Birthday, a cake smash! This special package comes with a beautiful Heirloom Linen covered Album to showcase your favorite portraits from each session which will also be placed on a Keepsake USB for safe keeping!
Scheduling your session
Before each session, we'll discuss exactly what you envision for your child's milestone session. Colors of outfits, where you would like to display your beautiful wall art from the session, and the location of the session (on location or in studio). I'll also find out when your baby is their happiest! That's the most important! I generally ask for 2-3 weeks notice to schedule your session, but I know sometimes life happens. There is a $200 retainer fee required to hold the current package price, along with a signed contract which I will send electronically. The remainder of the balance will be divided into payments to be paid before each session.
The day of the session
We've already created a list of different poses, so the day of the session is filled with nothing but fun moments. I love capturing your baby's little details and growing personalities! Bring a couple change of outfits so we can get an array of different poses, but plan for the session to be a quick one. Babies and children can only sit still for so long.
I have a wide variety of props including blankets, footstools, and boxes, but you are also welcome to bring your own if you would like to include them in your portraits. A special family heirloom, military uniform, or their favorite stuffed animal would personalize your portraits beautifully.
After the session
Jessica LS Photography specializes in creating wall art for you to display in your home for years to come. About two weeks after your session, I will come to your home for a reveal appointment and show you all the creatively edited portraits that were taken during your session. Feel free to invite anyone you would like to see the portraits so we can order everything at that time.
During that session you'll already have an idea of what types of portrait prints, wall art, and gifts you would like to purchase, so it shouldn't take more than 1-2 hours. I can help you select your favorites to include in your heirloom album and which ones you would like on your Keepsake USB. If you would like to make additional purchases, you will receive a discount on a la cart purchases during the reveal session only. Once we've finished ordering your beautiful products, you'll receive an online gallery which will be available for 2 weeks for you to share with your family and friends. The gallery can be password protected for your privacy. After that you can sit back, enjoy your children's laughter, and wait for your beautiful heirloom pieces to be created and then hand delivered to your door when they arrive.
Jessica LS Photography offers both wall art and digital images with the purchase of minimum packages. She uses only the best professional quality photography labs to create your one of a kind portrait prints and wall art. By purchasing professional prints, your images will be preserved for years to come, ensuring that you won’t forget the joy of the first few days of your child’s life. Jessica LS Photography guarantees you will love the craftsmanship and attention to detail you will receive in every product.
Did you know a baby will roughly triple his birth weight, grow 1-1/2 times as long as he was when he was born, and have about 1-1/3 times the head circumference in the first year? That's a lot of growing! Let's capture it all with the Baby's First Year Plan!
