how it works

01 Scheduling

Capturing beautiful portraits of your baby or toddler can be done at any age, but there is something truly special about acquiring photographs during their first year of life. Here are a few tips to help you plan your session.

3-5 Months: 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.

6-9 Months: 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. 

9-12 Months: As your baby grows and begins crawling, their personality will really start to shine through. Your baby will be full of energy and life. 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.

1 Year: 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.

2 Years Olds and Beyond: 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. 

02 Consultation

All sessions are tailored specifically to you and include a pre-session consultation over Zoom where we will begin designing your dream shoot. We will discuss ideas on posing, lighting, wardrobe, and style. I will work closely with you and learn from your ideas and expectations to make sure that your vision becomes a reality.

03 Wardrobe

We've got your back! At our all-in-one photo studio, we've got a fabulous wardrobe collection for your stunning maternity and precious motherhood shoots. A beautiful collection of silk draping, form-fitting dresses, bodysuits, lace robes, maternity gowns and accessories are provided for your session at no additional cost!

04 Makeup & Hair

Professional hair and makeup artistry is recommended for stunning portraits and is included in our package. You can sit back and relax before your session begins.

05 experience

Our sessions are styled like a fashion shoot and personalized to make you look and feel elegant and alluring. Your session is never rushed as we only book one client a day, which allows us freedom to spend the time needed to perfect each set up and help you make the most out of your shoot. Even if it is your first professional photography session, our goal is to ensure you feel comfortable, beautiful, confident, and empowered. During your photo shoot, Natalia will direct you through elegant poses, focusing on angles that bring out your most beautiful self while providing a luxurious day of pampering. Throughout your photoshoot you will have the opportunity to preview your images.

06 SELECTING YOUR PORTRAITS & RETOUCHING

Right after the photoshoot we will view your proofing gallery on a big screen, and we will be happy to help you to choose the best photographs for retouching. Your portrait session is only the beginning of creating your custom artwork. Each image is carefully and tastefully edited into a unique work of art. We specialize in the most comprehensive and detailed magazine-style editing. You don't have to worry about any imperfections.
