From maternity, to newborn, to that milestone one year session... imagine your baby's precious first year, so thoughtfully documented.

a beautiful collection of memories

The First Year Collective is a beautiful collection of sessions created with your growing family in mind. Time gets lost that first year, but as a Collective member, we'll get your sessions on the calendar right away, so you can rest assured knowing your memories will be thoughtfully documented.

Moments you'll want to relive

join the colllective

It’s important to me that every family finishes their First Year Collective with tangible, printed Artwork they can hold in their hands and enjoy for years to come.

Every Collection includes a set of Digital Images, as well as an Artwork Credit to use towards albums, frames or other Artwork in the Gallery Store. You can order Artwork after each of your sessions, or together we can create a big, beautiful First Year album that showcases your favorite memories from that first year.


Crafted with meaning, purpose, and story.


This experience is about more than a few photos, it's about preserving memories you'll hold dear for a lifetime. From laughter-filled moments to quiet, heartfelt ones... every photo tells a story. 

An experience filled with connection and thoughtfulness 

Fill out the Contact form so we can chat more about session availability, pricing, and answer any questions you have.

Newborn photography sessions book months in advance so reach out as soon as you're able to.

1. Inquire & Book Your Session

After your session is on the calendar, we can start session planning. You'll receive a What to Wear guide to start planning wardrobe as well as an Artwork Catalog to start thinking about your Artwork preferences, such as albums, frames, or prints.

2. Session Planning

Come as you are, and just love on your growing family. We'll focus natural, tender moments, where baby settles naturally into your arms, crib or bed, but of course, I'll be there to offer gentle guidance along the way.

3. Session Day

The moment you've been waiting for! A few weeks after each of your sessions, you'll receive a link to view your online Image Reveal -- where you get to see all of your beautifully finished photos in a slideshow, then purchase your Collection. Choose from 3 Collections, each including a set of Digital Images as well as an Artwork Credit.
