Introducing the Belly to Baby Plan

While maternity portraits are an optional part of the plan, a good number of our expectant clients choose to capture this changing phase of their lives – and for good reason.  Those fond memories of motherhood begin before birth while mom is still feeling refreshed, beautiful and excited about the joy of her new arrival.  For the perfect maternity session, we recommend scheduling during your seventh month.  We can also complete your studio consultation for your upcoming newborn session at this time.  Not only will we flatteringly pose you to capture you at your best, for that extra touch of glamour, we can even recommend a wonderful hair and makeup artist for your session.  Finally, we take the greatest care to ensure your comfort and pictures that share your inner glow.

Because this magical stage of life passes in the blink of an eye, newborn portraits are captured during the first two weeks of life while your little on is still well-fed, sleepy and content.  Brooke Richardson Photography will keep your due date on file and stay in touch with you as the exciting day approaches, making adjustments to fit you in at just the perfect time.

Don’t forget to reserve your gorgeous custom baby announcements a la carte to share your own new work of art with the world!

Six Months

When baby is ready for sitting but not yet on the go, we will capture him/her at the roly-poly happy phase, when those big grins and belly laughs are lighting up your life.  Sitting babies make the absolute best models, since they cannot crawl away and are easily amused with peek-a-boo and squeaky toys. Portraits at this stage capture the beginnings of those dynamic personalities that will be with you forever, and give a glimpse into a small person interacting with their environment as only those small bundles of delight can.

One year

With a penchant for partying and hands ready to dive into that birthday cake, the first birthday is a greatly anticipated milestone in every family.  At this age, your toddler will be interacting in lots of fun ways which sometimes leave even parents in need of a nap.  Standing, walking and ready to take on the world, we document that infectious energy and charisma that brings so much light (and sometimes surprise) into your life.  There is also an optional $50 upgrade for a cake smash to be included with his/her one year photos.  At the end of this session, we will create your much anticipated art collage with images from baby’s three sessions throughout the year!

Now is also the perfect time to create a custom Baby’s First Birthday Party invitations!  A special order for a special person, invite family and friends to see how far baby has come his or her first year.

The Plan $500

Included with this year-long package are three custom photo sessions which document your child as a newborn, at about six months (when baby is able to sit up) and at his or her first birthday while an optional maternity session and cake smash can be added for a simple $50 upgrade.  After each portrait session you’ll enjoy one of our session premiere’s which is a live presentation of the best images from your session.  At the viewing session, Brooke or an interior portrait consultant will help guide you through image selection and give their expert advice on how to decorate using your families treasured artwork in your space.  A decadent dessert is provided as well as discounted pricing to enjoy for that night only.

At the end of the first year, you will be able to choose from three (or four with maternity) stunning sessions and receive a 10×20 custom designed storyboard highlighting your favorite image from each session or a $175 credit towards wall art.  You’ll also receive a custom slideshow of your images set to music after all the sessions are complete.  What better way to remember Baby’s First year than to capture these special milestones in a year of whirlwind changes!
