Major Milestone Package 2018

ValentineRosieTimeline

I have highlighted my Newborn and 1st Birthday/Cake Smash sessions but this one is a combination of both!!  If you are planning on getting more pictures of your little ones besides just newborn then this package is for you.

My Major Milestone Package includes a Newborn, 6 month, and 1st Birthday/Cake Smash session in one and at a discounted price.  For the newborn and 1st birthday sessions you get exactly what you would get if you booked them alone while the 6 month session comes with 1 hour of session time and up to 10 digital images.  I love the idea of getting pictures throughout the first year since we all know just how much little ones change in such a short amount of time.  The total of this package is $500, $300 is due at the newborn session, $75 at the 6 month, and the remaining $125 at the 1st birthday session.  Additional sessions can be added on for a discounted price as well since  I know some people like to have pictures done more frequently in the first year.

Additionally, I also offer a Maternity and Newborn package.  It is completely understandable that some parents want to just take pictures themselves throughout the first year.  If this is the case no problem there are still options for you!  My Maternity and Newborn session is $375 and includes a full standard session for maternity and a full newborn session.  A Maternity session can also be added onto the Major Milestone Package for half the original price.

The first year of your child’s life is so important, I am so glad I can offer options that can hopefully fit into everyone’s schedule and budget.

1st Birthday Cake Smash Sessions

Cake smash sessions for a first birthday are so much fun!  There are so many possibilities of other things to use besides cakes as well and I am excited to try more of them this year.

Cake smashes are typically done for a first birthday so I offer a 1st Birthday Cake Smash session.  The session includes up to 1.5 hours of session time.  It does sound like a lot for a little one but I like to allow time to set up stuff and give the little ones a break.  The session is split up between essentially two different sessions.  The first part of the session is more of the first birthday session.  This is where I will take pictures of your little one in his or her birthday outfit, because everyone wants to get pictures of their 1 year old looking cute and adorable in a new outfit.  This part can be a different theme from the cake smash or just the more formal, don’t get cloths dirty, part of it.  For the second half, we do the cake smash part!  This is the fun part that gets super (hopefully) messy and the kids just have a great time.  Parents typically have a different outfit or no outfit for this part of the session.

My cake smash sessions include props, background, and cake.  Yes I do provide the cake for these sessions!  I have a good friend from Special Occasion Cakes by Pam who will work with you on what you would like for your cake.  You will be able to talk or meet with her to get your cake ordered to your specification.  The price of the cake is built into the session price so it is one less thing you will have to worry about.  I do understand if you have a good friend yourself who makes cakes and would like to bring your own, this is perfectly fine by me, unfortunately this will not change the price of the session.

These 1st birthday cake smash sessions can be done either inside or outside depending on your vision or time of year. We can even do an “indoor setup” outside if that is something you would like to do.  There are so many possibilities!

If you are looking for a 1st Birthday Cake Smash session you can book any time! The session is $250 and includes 1.5 hours of session time, 20 fully edited digital images with print release, all props/backgrounds, and the cake.  As with any session a $50 non-refundable retainer fee is required to book your session.  If you have any questions or some great ideas you would like to try, contact me today!  I can’t wait to see what this year brings for the amazing little ones.

Austin’s 1st Birthday/Cake Smash Session| Gibson City Child Photographer

This boy is ADORABLE! This little man is definitely going to be a Cardinal’s baseball player some day, he looks way too good in that jersey.

I had a great time with Austin! He LOVED that cake, I don’t think I have seen a kid destroy it as fast as he did.  Thank you Special Occasion Cakes by Pam for the awesome baseball themed cake.  It was perfect!

Happy Birthday Austin!
