I've been asked before if I have a favorite type of session. I honestly can't narrow it down to a single type of session (and I don't take on projects that I don't love, so there's also not a least favorite to be honest). However, I can without a doubt tell you that First Year Collections are my favorite package to book for clients. I love everything about it! The joy of new life that the newborn session celebrates, the amazing growth and new skills that we capture at each milestone session, and my most favorite: the connections and lasting friendships I gain from spending a whole year involved in my client's lives.


Well, enough about me. Let me tell you more about sweet, darling Rose. We just finished her 8 month milestone session and she is already showing her boss babe potential. She totally directed this session and I absolutely welcomed it. She wanted most of her photos to be done while in her momma's arms, so that's what we did. What I love about letting baby "lead" a session in this way is that it gives such an accurate picture of who they are, right now. And that, my friends, is exactly the point!
