Babies & Toddlers

Working with older babies is an amazing experience. These sessions are typically from 3 months old and up, and focusing on an awake and alert baby and capturing their personality. While some people like to do newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year, my recommendation as a newborn and baby photographer in the twin cities is to definitely do around 6 months (as soon as baby is sitting up unassisted) and 1 year. My basic baby sessions are much shorter than a newborn session - typically around 30 minutes, as obviously a studio session can be an overwhelming sensory overload in a strange place to them. I never rush baby, and let them take their time getting comfortable with me and my space before we start.


Cake Smash sessions (typically done a couple of weeks before baby's first birthday) are around an hour to 90 minutes long. Some babies dive right into a cake, and others absolutely hate it. Either way, there are a lot of laughs to be had during a cake smash session. The experience itself is the fun!! This session starts with classic portraits, the cake smash, and then if parents want, a little splash bath after!
