01

Your family and your baby are unique, so your session will be, too!
After we discuss setting the perfect date, we will talk about what you want to do with your portraits. Do you want a gorgeous album? A large canvas or wall grouping? We will make a perfect plan just for you! 
We will discuss what you and your family should wear so you will all look your best. All of your concerns will be addressed, so you feel comfortable and excited about your session!

02

With older babies, we have lots of fun!
You can bet there will be tickling, singing, funny noises, and lots of smiling and laughing. Even if baby is shy, those pictures will be cute, too!
We have some sweet outfits for you to use here at the studio, but feel free to bring whatever you like!
Cake smash sessions last a good hour, but younger babies do better with shorter photo sessions.

03

Each of your photos is carefully and beautifully edited by me. I make sure to take the time to polish them to perfection!
Once they are ready, I invite you back to the studio. You get to see your images for the first time, choose a collection and order your prints.

FAQ's

Q: What do I need to bring to my session?
A: Any special outfits for your baby, food and snacks for baby, and if baby has allergies, I ask that you supply the cake for a cake smash. (just to be safe!)

Q: Can parents and siblings be in the photos?
A: Absolutely! Having siblings and parents in the photos is important. These are precious memories we are recording and the whole family is welcome to be a part of it.

Q: When should I reserve my baby's session?
A: The sooner the better to ensure you get your session
exactly when you want it! 

Q: How long is a milestone session?
A: Plan for the session to last up to an hour. Young baby sessions will be shorter.

Q: How old should my baby be for milestone portraits?
A: It's up to you! I suggest newborn, 6 month, and one year portrait sessions, but some parents like to do newborn, 3, 6, & 9 months and one year. Inquire about my baby plan for more information and options!

I was extremely lucky to have come across Sally's website. After viewing her website and beautiful work, I was convinced she was the one to photograph my newborn baby boy. Sally went above and beyond our expectations! Thank you for being patient and gentle with my precious baby.
