Your little one is going to grow and change so much in their first year! One day you're coming home from the hospital and the next you're looking at a walking, talking, energetic little person standing where your newborn once laid.
Milestone sessions can be done at any time after the newborn stage (I recommend waiting until 3 months when baby can lift their head on their belly), but 6 and 9 months are the most popular ages that give us the biggest milestones and the most variety.
From sitting to standing, from tummy time to crawling... Don't let these moments pass you by.
"An absolute joy to work with and has a great eye for posing! That fact that she’s a baby whisper doesn’t hurt either!!
She's very accommodating and patient
which makes for a stress free shoot. I’d give her more stars if I could!"
The snuggles, the belly laughs, the wonder in their eyes as they explore the world and learn new things every single day. It's incredible to watch your little one grow so much in their first year.
A custom experience, from Start to finish!
Just like there is no baby out there quite like yours, we are truly unlike any other photo studio in the area. From choosing outfits to deciding where to hang portrait art in your home... let us guide you every step of the way.
Here's how it works:
Here we photograph stages, not ages. Booking in advance is important as my schedule does tend to fill up quickly. For a sitter session (6-7 months) it is very important that your little one is sitting up unassisted.
Just visit the contact page to check my availability and then we'll schedule a quick phone call to see if we're a good fit to work together.
After booking you will receive a detailed prep guide and we will set up a pre-session consultation so that I can start customizing your sets and planning for your printed art work.
My sessions are baby led, meaning I will take baby’s lead as far as how many poses we can achieve and I will never deny a diaper change or feeding. Family and sibling poses will be done first, and then I will work one on one with baby.
In this session we will do 2-3 different outfits. Any more than that will be overwhelming for your little one, and we want this to be a fun, enjoyable experience for everyone!
Before you leave the studio we will confirm a date and time for your viewing appointment.
After your session has been completed, your images will be individually hand edited and prepared. In 1-2 weeks you'll return to the studio for a presentation of your finished portraits.
Final purchase decisions and payments are made at this appointment, so we ask that siblings remain at home for this appointment so that you can give your full attention to this part of the process.
All of our art products have been sourced from the best professional labs around the world.
Your art pieces will be prepared & ordered within 48 hours of your ordering appointment. With production and shipping time, your final products will be ready in about 3-6 weeks. (Up to 8 weeks for our handcrafted wood products.)
We will contact you when everything is ready for pickup at the studio. Any digital files that you have selected will be available for download online within 48 hours.
Let us take the stress out of planning and ordering! In our studio, you will leave this experience feeling confident and taken care of, instead of getting stuck trying to figure everything out on your own.

My goal is to create more than just photos for you… it’s to create art. To take this precious time of your life and document it in a beautiful, whimsical way that you can display as finished pieces of art in your home. Don’t let these gorgeous photos just sit on your hard drive or Facebook memories!
My job as your photographer isn’t truly done until your images have been printed and displayed. You will leave this experience with beautiful, tangible pieces from your session that you and your family can enjoy for generations.
Milestone Session fee: $200
• Up to 60 minute portrait session with 2-3 outfits/sets

Your session fee covers 3 appointments:
1. A pre-session consultation
2. Your portrait session with Crystal

It also includes:

• Editing and retouching of all final images
*Session fee does not include prints or digital images.
You'll return to the studio two weeks after your photo session for a private viewing & ordering appointment. All purchases will be made at this time, so it is important that all decision makers are present.
Collections start at $550 and most clients invest between $850-$2300 on their portrait art and digital files.
Let’s talk about rollers! These sessions are most requested by Mamas that missed out on newborn photos and want to have their baby photographed before they hit that big 6-month milestone.
After your newborn session, the next best time for portraits is the sitter milestone, which usually falls between 6-8 months. This guide will walk you though how to make the most of your portrait session.
I am SO excited to join you on this adventure! Just fill out the contact form below to start the conversation.
After I confirm my availability I'll be in touch to schedule a discovery call.
