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 Baby Session| 6 Months

I was so excited to see this beauty for her milestone mini! As a one year baby plan client, I get to watch her grow, and I absolutely love it! The one year plan is my best seller.  I am spoiled with so many little ones to admire as they grow from tiny little newborns, tositting, crawling little babes, to walking, running and babbling one year olds smashing cake! It truly fills my heart with so much joy!

Molly loved the camera. She rarely took her eyes off me! She was full of smiles, and on the move! For this session we brought back the tutu and crown from her newborn shoot to do a comparison shot (and we will do another at 1 year) so that mom has an amazing keepsake (The crown was used in her maternity, too!). She surely showed off her amazing expressions and personality for me!

A true little doll.

Pulaski, NY Photography| Newborn Session

Mackenzie was a sleepy sweetheart for her entire session!
7 days old, and just so beautiful!!!
I love photographing pretty much everything (family sessions, seniors, weddings, children)....but newborns have my heart!! I love everything about them. I try my very best to use setups and materials that are bright, natural and fresh... because when I think of newborns, that is all I can imagine! The fresh newborn smell, their beautiful bright newborn skin, their soft brand new head of hair, the amazing peach fuzz, and tiny little toes!  

They are addicting! ;) 

Mackenzie was nothing short of perfection and she let me soak up all her sweetness. I got to show off her chubby cheeks, her perfect wrinkles and rolls, her amazing little lips and just how curly and squishy she still is! She was a pro. 

 

World, meet Mackenzie.

I've been so blessed to be able to photograph this little peanut since she was just a couple of weeks old, and here she is, now 9 months, and precious as ever!!! She was all business for her session this time, but with a face like that, the sweet little doll doesn't need to smile at all!!! Those eyes!!! 

And have you ever seen a more beautiful family!!!?!

Pulaski, NY Photography| 9 Month Session

This happy, happy boy is 9 months old!!! I've never seen a baby smile so big all the time. He is very busy, and I'm sure he'll be walking very soon! I was exhausted after our session! lol

You for sure won't be able to look at these without smiling <3

Love this baby boy!!!
