First Moments |  $1800

Your baby changes more in the first 365 days than in any other time during their entire life. Don’t let the days pass by, the sleep deprivation take over & risk missing these first moments. Document this fast time so you don’t have to rely on your memory to recall each smile, each roll and each milestone for each month.

First Moments is about capturing your baby each month from day 0 to day 365 so you can easily remember it all as it flies past.

As a First Moments client, your invited to my studio in North Seattle once a month for those first 12 months, scheduled as close to their birth day (of the month) as possible. We can capture each of the little and big milestones as they happen, and before they pass. Starting out with a full size session for your newborn, photographing baby and family, then we schedule a quick 20 minute session every month from 1 to 11 of just baby. This way, it’s fast and easy on you, and we can capture your little one’s new thing, which may be smiling at month 1, laughing at month 2, finding their toes at month 3, turning over at month 4 or 5, sitting at month 6, crawling at 7, clapping at 8, cruising at 9 or 10 and maybe even walking at 11. Then for babies 1 year session, we have another full 60 minute session capturing baby and their new skills along with family and siblings too!

You’ll want to be able to see the images through the whole year as we photograph them. So, to showcase the year, while it’s happening, we create a custom app for your phone, tablet and computer that will be updated with your favorite 2-3 images after each session (each mini session will have 10-15 images to choose from). This app updates itself and is sharable to anyone you’d like with just one click. It lives on your phone (Apple or Droid phones or tablets), so you never have to search your camera roll for an updated photo. Grandma and grandpa never have to ask for updated photos and it’s easy to show anyone that adorable smile, the cute little rolls, and the changes your baby goes through from month to month. The app even downloads the images onto your phone, so no internet or phone connection is needed to show off your adorable baby.The app lives as your digital scrapbook of the year,

At the end of the year, we find your favorite image from each session, and put together a beautiful heirloom album of one photo from each month, showcasing the major changes that happened in a short 365 days. Your album will be a treasured item reminding you of those fleeting days when each day held a magical new discovery, and a learning tool as your baby grows, showing them what they looked like when they were an itty bitty one. Something that is extra helpful when a new baby is coming into the home!

To add to the experience, you also get to choose 1 image per session as a full 8×10 printable JPG retouched and ready to print.

Document this treasured time in life before it passes as”The days are long, but the years are short.”
