Baby Sessions – the StarBabies program


* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *



From tiny, squishy newborns to toddling one-year-olds, baby sessions are lots of fun! Documenting this first precious year of life and the miraculous changes that happen over just a few shorts months is one of the most rewarding parts of my job.

It’s over in a blink, isn’t it? In a haze of midnight feedings, diapers, milestones and baby kisses, the first year is gone in a flash. Capturing the milestones as a baby grows is such a joy for me … I’m honored to be chosen to be such an important part of your family’s story!

  • 20 (or more!) finished images
  • online slideshow/shopping cart

So what can you expect from your sessions?

That varies, depending on the age of your baby! Here are just a few tips about what to expect from your baby’s sessions.


  • Portraits of your newest family member are often among a family’s most precious heirlooms.  After all, they are only this little for a very short time!
  • The best newborn portraits are created in the first two weeks of life, when your baby is still curled up and sleepy.
  • Also, since baby acne tends to kick in after three weeks of age, the earlier we do the portraits the smoother the skin will be.
  • One key to gorgeous newborn portraits is *patience*. Sometimes newborn sessions can take up to two hours to complete.
  • Tiny babies are happiest in your arms, so many of our newborn images will be created while you are holding your baby.


  • For 4-12 month old babies, your home, backyard or other comfortable outdoor space is ideal for your session.
  • Sessions with babies take place in the morning, as they are more reliably happy and cooperative then.
  • Please keep your child’s nap schedule in mind as we determine the best time for your session.
  • Try to keep your child’s schedule as close to ‘the usual’ as possible the day of the session.  Ample time for snacks and breaks is built into your session time.
