DC Baby Photographer | Ophelia Turns 1

As the premiere DC Baby Photographer, I get to photograph a lot of one year milestone sessions! Many of my clients are baby plan members, which means I get to watch their baby grow through their first year. It is truly one of my favorite options because you get professional photos of your baby growing over such a special year in their (and your) lives! Many of our clients start out with either maternity or newborn photos. Some do both! And then the other sessions are used for baby milestone sessions to document them learning to sit up, stand, walk, crawl, and so much more! All of our sessions and memberships are completely customizable so no two memberships are the same.

This sweet session is Ophelia’s 1 year session at our Warrenton, VA studio! We took the most precious photos that I know her mama will love for years to come. We started off snuggling and letting her walk (with assistance) around. At the end, we did a cake smash and it turned out so sweet! What are your favorite photos from the session? Let me know in the comments! πŸ™‚

How Milestone Sessions Work

Milestone sessions traditionally take place in our studio. However, I have had some clients do them at home and even outside. The convenience and perk of using our studio is that we have everything there that you’d possibly need! πŸ™‚ You also don’t have to worry about cleanup – I’ve got it covered. It’s also a great option if there’s a milestone you want captured during the winter months when it’s too cold to go outside with the babies.

All of our portrait sessions include use of our luxurious studio wardrobe! We have over 150 dresses for moms to choose from. We even have a baby wardrobe that goes up to size 5T, so if you have a big brother/sister, they’re covered as well. Our studio wardrobe takes one of the biggest stressors of session planning off of our clients. Instead of shopping with little kiddos in tow, you can use our studio wardrobe and avoid all of the inevitable returns! You can also use the money you would’ve spent on clothing and put that towards precious heirloom artwork to preserve these sweet memories.
