Why Book a First Year Plan?

Almost all the newborn sessions I photograph are babies who have booked a "First Year Plan."
I get to see them a few times a year to document their biggest milestones! Usually this is Maternity, Newborn, 6 Months (or whenever they are sitting up) and then finally, their 1 Year Portraits! 

So, why book a 1 year plan?

Well....because this happens....

Somewhere along the way, in 12 short months, our children seem to go from a snuggly, sleepy baby to a walking toddler! 

We have to start grabbing them, squeezing them, and stealing the kisses and hugs that we love so much! 

When you book a First Year Plan, you are making a promise to capture these moments, document the milestones, and tell the story of their first year. The most important year to all of you. The year they are welcomed into the world, the year you watch them grow with excitement and wonder, and the year you realize that this is the first of so many more wonderful years to come!

All seamlessly documented, and beautifully captured.

Pulaski, NY Children's Photography| One Year Session

Emery. I can't say enough sweet things about her! I had so much fun watching her toddle around, babbling away, and using one little finger to lick frosting from her cake! She wasn't much interested in a full blown smash, but was more than happy to have a delicate taste!! I set up this pretty little backdrop for her after Mom sent me a photo of the tutu she couldn't wait to put her in! It all came together so perfectly.

We even got to spend some time outdoors. She wasn't too sure what to think of the grass on her feet, but it was almost 75 degrees, sunny, and mid afternoon, and we enjoyed the warm breeze while strolling around my property.

We also go her back into her Mama's wedding dress! It surely wasn't as easy as when she was a newborn, haha!

The very last photo in the series is a creative edit merging the two together for one beautiful keepsake!!
