The Differences Between
Similar Photo Session's
Family and Children Session VS. "Grow with Me" (The First Year)
Family and Children Photo Sessions are definitely different from "Grow with Me" (The First Year) Photo Sessions. Just like with most other photo sessions that have differences, the similarities are usually for the people who the sessions are for. In both the Family and Children sessions, and the "Grow with Me" Sessions - the family is involved. More specifically, children are the 'star' of the 'show'.
The Family and Children Sessions are for either the children only, or can be the entire family. This session is more 'general' in nature - being that it can be a variety of different types of combinations of people, children, parents, adults, grandparents, etc... These Sessions can be for any age, and document any celebration, such as holidays - or 'just because' type of photo's. The Family and Children Sessions can be priced as a mini session or a full session.
This session includes up to 6 people. Each additional person is $5 extra. (If you know you will have more than 6 people for the family session, please let me know ahead of time, so we can figure out the total session price. The $5 extra per person over 6 people, applies to both the mini-sessions and the regular sessions.)
"Grow with Me" (The First Year) Sessions are perfect for those who are wanting to closely capture and document their child's entire first year of life. The first year is a super special and magical time! It's the year they seriously grow the most! This series of photo sessions capture those precious details. These sessions include a total of 4 photo sessions, spaced out and taken around the child's 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, and 12 month "birthday's".
Usually, these sessions only include 1 child (or 2, if they're twins, for instance). There is specific payment/pricing information regarding this type of photo session, which you can view

Fresh 48 Session VS. Newborn Session
Fresh 48 Sessions and Newborn sessions have similarities. Like... they both involve... precious, beautiful, new little babies! As similar as they can be, they are also very different.
Fresh 48 Sessions are special sessions for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn's life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented. Held within the first 24-48 hours of your baby's life, these lifestyle sessions capture precious moments that are created in the first hours of your little ones new life. Being more of a lifestyle session, they tend to be more candid in nature, and are often done at the hospital, and/or family's home.
Newborn Sessions are photo sessions for families who want precious photo's of their new little one, captured within the first month of his or her new life. Newborn sessions are often more posed sessions, and often done with a variety of props.
For the newborn sessions... I have some really cool props, and can definitely do pictures in my home (I have an area in my home that is a great place for photo's, plus it's easier to use my larger props). Another option is we can do photo's at your home (the family's home), or, we can always do a park (if warm enough).
