A squishy belly, tons of thigh rolls, real genuine smiles! Perhaps one of my favorite stages of baby's first year!
Arlo was such a happy boy for his 1 year session! I loved the use of the blues and greens here. It was December so we had to sneak in a lil Christmas setup!
1 year session
A sitter session is hands down my favorite milestone. When baby can sit unassisted but is not yet crawling or walking. Claire was very easy to make smile and she loved having her big siblings there to cheer her on!
Some babies are more shy than others and that is perfectly ok! Nylah didn't think I was very funny. Nothing is more humbling than a baby who doesn't think you're funny, haha! But she did end up cracking a few smiles for us. I always tell my clients that a smile doesn't make a beautiful portrait, the subject does!
1 year session
breathtaking • moments • captured
A milestone session is for babies between 3-12 months old. The most common are 3 months, 6.5-7 months and 1 year. The 1 year session can be done with or without a cake smash. My personal favorite is the 6.5-7 month age. Babies are usually sitting unassisted but not crawling yet. They're usually very happy at this stage and the stranger danger has not fully set in yet.
Send me a message to see if I'm available for your time frame and to see if we are a good fit! Milestone sessions can be done from 3 months to 1 year with the most popular being a 1 year session. My setups are very simplistic with minimal props to keep the focus on your darling baby.
1. Say Hello
My shooting days are Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10-1pm. Alternatively, these sessions can be done outdoors as well from May-October at sunset. If you're interested in an outdoor setting, plan on being in the photos with your baby as well, especially if your baby isn't sitting quite yet. There is a $100 retainer due at booking to secure your slot. The remainder is due the day before your session.
2. Schedule it
I like to plan these sessions around baby's nap time so we get the best shot at a happy babe! Mom, dad and siblings are always welcome to hop in a few shots as well.
I have a little client closet just for baby! Full of timeless pieces for boys and girls. No need to go shopping, just arrive to your session and we can pick outfits out together. I also have headbands for little girls as well. We will have up to an hour to play and capture all those little details that you love so much.
3. Planning it
Milestone sessions take between 40-60 minutes. I plan for 10-15 minutes of warm up time if your baby has a bit of stranger danger. I love using an array of soft colors and textiles. If you would like to bring a cake for a 1 year session, you may! I don't provide the cake for allergen reasons.
4. Your Session
Shortly after your session, within three days, I will send over a proofing gallery of everything we did during our session. You will see a gallery of 25-30 images to choose from. You only buy what you love! After you have chosen, your finished gallery will be delivered via email within 3 weeks. Each image is carefully edited to perfection.

"Trish is absolutely amazing and has found her calling in photographing children. She is very accommodating and professional. Will come back for all our photographing needs!"
“Trish is an amazing photographer. I have utilized her services for several of my children’s newborn photos, milestone sessions, and family photos. She is always so kind, patient, and just a pure joy to work with. The images she create and pure perfection and nothing compares. I couldn’t recommend her enough!"
"Trish was amazing from start to finish! Her studio was so cozy and warm and she was absolutely amazing with our 1 year old! He didn’t want to sit still but Trish was so fast with her camera and captured the most beautiful images that we didn’t even see happening at the time! Our son is pretty reserved and shy around people that he doesn’t know but it only took a few minutes for him to warm up to her! She has such a kind and excellent energy with little ones and she was extremely patient! She def knows what she’s doing to make the whole session quick and painless for mom, dad and baby! The best part was that she delivered our gallery SUPER fast!! I would 100 percent recommend Trish and we will definitely be going back next year!"
