Being an Edmonton maternity, newborn and family photographer for the past 4 years, I’ve had the pleasure of documenting many big milestones in my client’s lives. From first babies to third babies. Watching them grow in mama’s belly to taking their first wobbly steps. And every big milestone in between.
Working with returning clients, building meaningful relationships and watching your little ones grow has allowed me to capture some of my most genuine, heartwarming work.
My favourite thing about being an Edmonton maternity photographer is watching my families grow in front of my camera. This is exactly why I’ve dreamed up The First Year Collection – a beautiful, full-service portrait experience to document each big moment in baby’s first year of life.
The First Year Collection is made up of four full-length photography sessions throughout your baby’s first year of life.
Each family is able to select the time frame that works best for each session, but popular sessions include:
Telling the first big chapter in baby’s first year of life, these sessions are relaxed and allow us to capture the excitement and anticipation prior to baby’s arrival into your family. These typically take place between 28 and 35 weeks.
Newborn sessions typically take place in-home, and are usually scheduled within the first two to three weeks of birth. These sessions are slow-paced, intimate and heartwarming, where we capture your new family, in your space as you soak up those sweet newborn snuggles.
These sessions typically take place between 6-9 months, when baby is sitting unassisted. This allows us to capture some sweet solo shots of baby while their growing personality shines through. This age is filled with magic, as they smile, giggle, and explore the world around them.
These sessions typically take place just before or after baby’s first birthday. During this session, it’s fun to showcase any new skills they have – such as standing and walking with or without assistance – as well as their growing personality.
There are so many benefits to booking the First Year Collection.
A few of our favourites are:
In addition to the many perks listed above, booking the First Year Collection allows you to relax, knowing that all of baby’s important milestones will be captured. Not only will your images fit seamlessly together to tell the story of your baby’s first year, but you’ll also have the benefit of working with someone who will spend the year getting to know your family, and who baby will become familiar with. What better way to capture their true personality than putting them at ease?
We know that the first year of baby’s life goes by in the blink of an eye. Booking The First Year Collection allows you to have each fleeting moment preserved forever. Because it’s true what they say – the days are long but the years are oh-so-short.
