It’s an experience like none other...those precious first days at home, smiling, crawling, and before you know it, a first birthday and those unbelievable first steps...such a sweet little gift! Baby's First Year Collection includes three unforgettable sessions: newborn, 7 months, and one year. From their sweet first smiles to their first steps, I have designed the perfect collection of sessions that will capture those remarkable moments. Because my B.F.Y. clients become my lifelong friends, I have created these collections at a very special price to introduce you to my work and the passion I have for my art but most of all, the love I have for my clients. I hope that as we enjoy this first year together, you will consider me for all of your family’s future milestones!

This collection will capture your child’s first year in their own personal way, in your home or at a beautiful outdoor location (within 30 miles of Midlothian, VA). Add a mini-maternity session to
your milestones collection for just $59!

Baby's First Year Collection offers exclusive lifetime membership to The Birthday Club and guarantees your child a complimentary 20 minute mini-session every year during their birthday month, through their 10th birthday!
A $1000 value!

Because excellent customer service is always a top priority, I have instituted policies that will be beneficial for us both. I believe that sharing these policies and expectations will enhance our relationship!

  • All three B.F.Y. sessions must be of the same child.
  • The B.F.Y. program expires when the child turns 13 months old.
  • I will call or email to confirm your session. If you must reschedule, I request a 48-hour notice. I understand emergencies with small children and am certainly forgiving in those circumstances!
  • Files from which orders have been placed will be retained for two years to accommodate reorder requests.
  • I prefer that clients place their orders within the 7-day online viewing window, however I realize that sometimes a longer viewing/ordering window is necessary. Additional viewing days may be purchased in 7 day increments with a $50 service fee.
  • Payment plans are available upon request!
There are no products included with this steeply discounted collection however, there are greatly discounted options for purchasing digital files; the digital bundle includes all of the digital files for the full year for just $999 + tax, paid in three installments of $333 + tax following each session. Q: Are digital files included
in this collection?
These portrait sessions are very low-key, relaxed, and not jarring to young children...or parents! I am adept at guiding children through simple poses or activities that are appropriate for every stage of infancy. Q: What should I expect?
Getting organized for a portrait session can be stressful, especially with a little one in tow. I would love for your guests to help you with this process. However, it’s important that additional guests be respectful of that relationship and refrain from helping to direct pose choices or coaching children during the portrait session. I may ask for Mom or Dad’s help, but other than that, your guests may relax and enjoy your company in an area that will be unseen by your child. Please note that I request no other cameras or picture taking occur during our session. Q: We have grandparents, friends,
other family members visiting.
Can they come and watch?
Because this is a special offer
at a greatly reduced price, I am generally unable to schedule my Baby Steps clients on the weekend because I reserve those times
for regular portrait sessions and weddings. Baby's First Year appointments are available during our regular weekly hours. In my off-season, weekend appointments may be available.
Q: May we have our session
on a weekend?
Absolutely! But please be aware that
the main focus is all about baby.
Newborn sessions will have lots of snuggling together, the six month session I’ll usually have mom/dad hold baby’s hands while they are practicing standing, and at the one-year session, family members can jump in a few of the images for some fun, candid shots, so be prepared with your wardrobe choices so they coordinate with each other!
Q: Can mom, dad, siblings,
and furry friends be in
the pictures, too?
Carefully curated products are available for purchase following your session.

Archival-quality gift portraits starting at $35, gallery-wrapped wall canvases starting at $125,
and heirloom albums starting at $375. A full price list is available upon request.
