Babies & Toddlers

Classic Portraits

Working with older babies is an amazing experience. You never know what you're going to get, and I just LOVE the challenge in that! 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 (typically when 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

Cake Smash sessions (typically done a couple of weeks before baby's first birthday) are around an hour to  long. Some babies dive right into a cake, and others absolutely hate it. The key with these sessions is making them short and sweet, and capturing their unique way of living the moment! 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! If you are also celebrating with a Doljabi or another birthday tradition, I would love to help you honor that as well. 

My older baby and cake smash sessions start at $400 including digitals, and I offer payment plans as well as several custom package options from basic to boutique.
