Motherhood is a sacred journey that is a gift, a calling, and an honor.

Our goal is to preserve your story in its truest and most elegant form through timeless portraits to be proudly displayed in your home. Your personalized session will be dedicated to capturing the heart and essence of your unique bond with your child, from intimate cuddles and kisses to sweet laughter and everything in between.



At three to five months, your baby will be able to hold their head up on their own and will likely be in the sitting stage. This is a great time to schedule a photoshoot because your baby will be alert and engaged but still relatively calm. Plus, they'll be able to interact with you during the shoot, which will result in some truly special moments.

The sitting stage is one of the best times to capture those sweet chubby cheeks and baby rolls. Your little one will be able to sit up on their own but may not be quite mobile yet, making it easy to get them to stay in one spot long enough for some beautiful portraits. Around six to nine months is therefore an ideal time for a mommy and me photoshoot. 

As your baby grows and begins crawling, their personality will really start to shine through. Your baby will be full of energy and life, making for some wonderfully candid shots as well as . And if you're thinking about scheduling a mommy and me shoot, this is also the perfect age for your baby to take part in the fun too.

One year olds are full of energy and personality, and they love to explore their surroundings. This makes them great subjects for photography, but it can also make them difficult to wrangle. If you have your heart set on a one-year-old photoshoot, be prepared for a lot of movement.

By the time your baby turns two, they’ll likely be a lot more subdued (relatively speaking). They may even be able to sit still for short periods of time. This makes two years old and beyond a great time for photoshoots. 

No matter what age your child is, there's always a perfect time to capture their beauty in a photograph. Depending on your schedule, we can work with you to find a time that works best for both you and your little one.
