Baby's First Year

Newborns grow so quickly and don't stay curly and squishy for ever...  This is the time when they start smiling, coo-ing, laughing, crawling, sitting, rolling over.... and before you know it, it's their first birthday's cake smash session!  I love capturing each new stage and all the milestones they reach at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months.  The Cake Smash session can be part of your baby's 12 months milestone session. This takes place at the last 30 mins where baby can get messy.  Cake must be provided by parents. Ask me for bakery recommendations

When to book:

Most parents book milestone sessions at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months. I also offer 100 days of life sessions.

Session location & duration:

My studio is located in beautiful Carlsbad, CA.  It's filled with props and has natural light and studio gear that is ideal for photographing babies  A typical milestone session is approximately 1 hour long. I allow time for baby to feed or rest and whatever it takes to make your baby happy and comfortable for his/her variety of poses. I also try to move quickly so I can capture baby at their happiest. 

After the session:

In about two weeks after your session, you will receive the online gallery containing images to view. You will pick your favorite images and/or products to order at that time.  I have a variety of different packages to choose from. You can always upgrade and purchase additional images once you view your images. Professional prints may be purchased directly through the gallery.  

Booking a milestone session:

I do whatever I can to fit in last minute requests, but it's best to message me early to fit you in my schedule.  I ask for a $100 deposit to reserve your spot (balance is due at the time of the session). 


I exclusively offer sessions for maternity, newborn and baby's first year. I take pride and put a lot of work into composing, processing & retouching your images therefore these sessions are an investment.
