Maddi & Morgan One Year Cake Smash Session http://www.leighphotos.com/blog/2018/2/maddi-morgan-turn-1  

Rewind to December 2016 I met this sweet family helping a friend photograph their newborn session. Fast forward a year and I had the privilege of seeing them again, and photographing them in my studio for my friend. We had a blast with the double cake smash.  I, myself, have a love for food, so there's cuteness overload of the cake smash part.

Now I can't wait to share baby Stand's newborn portraits.

Watch Me Grow Program http://www.leighphotos.com/blog/2018/1/watch-me-grow-program New for 2018

It's a new year and the studio is continuing to grow. I'm expecting great things this year, and huge things to come in 2019. Hey if you don't set yourself some goals what's the point?!

This year I've changed my milestone sessions to a Watch Me Grow Program. This change is to better capture your new little baby's first year. You won't regret these priceless portraits. They change so fast. In the past milestone sessions occurred 3, 6, 9, or 12 months, but over time we've found that waiting until they are 4 months is better. Their personalities really start to shine and I'm more likely to capture more smiles at this age. Four months is the laying session. We do a lot of laying down poses looking up at the camera, and tummy time pictures. The next recommended session is around 7/8 months for the sitting session. They are good and strong, yet normally not mobile. Even if they are a little mobile we have props to capture their cuteness. The next session is, of course, the one year session.  We can capture your little loves outside or inside depending on the time of year, but if you want the famous Cake Smash Session at the end then it will be a studio session for sure! 

A special I'll be running for my clients in the Watch Me Grow Program is an 18 month family session. In case your little guy or gal was worn out for their one year session a great way to capture a family session outside is at 1.5-2 years old. This session's timing can vary due to weather and schedules, but it's something I want to offer my families. The session fee is an extra $75. So instead of doing four sessions in one year I recommend doing three sessions, then a fourth session outside with the full family before they turn two. 

Remember the more your little one gets to know me, the better our session experiences. Connection is always reflected in your portraits. I like to capture it all, smiles, laughter, serious, and sometimes the tears.

Watch Me Grow First Year Session Fee:  $225 For Three Sessions
