Baby Milestone Session
As a mother of three children, I know how fast they change. Babies grow so quickly! Capturing them throughout their first year is so important! Capture your baby's milestones at 3 months, 6 months, or 9 months.
Scheduling your session
Before your session, I would love to chat with you and find out 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 (either in studio or outdoors with weather permitting). 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. All portrait sessions can be scheduled months in advance. There is a $100 retainer fee required to hold your session along with a signed contract which I will send electronically.
The day of the session
I've already created a list of different poses from chatting with you, so the day of the session is filled with nothing but fun moments. I love capturing your baby's tiny features and their 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 a favorite stuffed animal would personalize your photos 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 session and show you all the creatively edited portraits that were taken for 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 want 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 or which ones you would like to purchase digital files. 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.
