Milestone sessions start at $250 and One Year/ Cake Smash Session start at $300. Most sessions for babies under a year old take place in your home using my mobile studio. The session fee includes a set number of high resolution digital images. You will get to view the entire gallery from your session, and you will get to choose your favorites. You can pick the set number of included images with your session fee, add additional images at a per-image price, or purchase the full gallery at a discounted rate.
All digital files include a print release for you to print where you would like.
In your gallery you also have the option to order professional prints from my preferred lab. These are available at a reduced cost as I want you to have high quality professional prints that are color calibrated to my specifications.
Milestone sessions are for one child between the ages of 6 months to 4 years old. The best age for babies is between 6-8 months when they are able to sit on their own and older. Babies/ toddlers over a year old are typically done at sunset. Sessions last about 30 minutes and include 15 high resolution edited images in an online gallery with the option to purchase more.
ONE YEAR/CAKE SMASH SESSION
One year portraits and cake smash images are done in your home. I typically schedule these sessions around 11 months. The earlier you contact me, the better I can plan! I provide simple decor and some props. Sessions last an hour and include 20 high resolution edited images in an online gallery with the option to purchase more. Includes complimentary bubble bath!

Make sure to read over the FAQs below!
When is the best time to schedule a milestone session?
I always recommend clients schedule their milestone session at least 3-4 weeks before their ideal date. For younger babies, when they are able to sit on their own (but not walking yet) is a great age!
What do I need to provide for the milestone session?
Most clients provide an outfit for their baby. If you are wanting a specific outfit/ look, I recommend purchasing a few weeks prior to the session. I do have a few outfits available for sitters (size 6 month - 12 month) along with headbands.
Where do milestone sessions take place?
Most milestone sessions take place in your home for babies under a year old. They can take place outdoors in or near Belton, TX if weather permitting if you would prefer.
When is the best time to schedule a cake smash session?
I always recommend clients schedule their cake smash session at least 3-4 weeks before their ideal date. Cake smash sessions are scheduled during the week, in the morning, based on the best time around baby's nap. I do offer weekend dates on a limited basis, for an additional fee.
What do I need to provide for the cake smash session?
Clients provide a birthday outfit for their baby along with specific props to go with their theme. If you are wanting a specific outfit/ look, I recommend purchasing a few weeks prior to the session. I do have a few outfits available along with headbands. I can provide a balloon garland and/ or tissue poofs in the color(s) of your choice, but I tend to keep things simple.
Where do cake smash sessions take place?
Cake smash sessions take place in your home.
How many set up are included with the cake smash?
Normally I do three set ups. One focusing on the child alone, the cake smash and the complementary bubble bath at the end.
What type of cake should I provide?
The cake should be 5-6 inches with a soft butter cream icing and a light colored cake. You will have a prep guide that also has recommended bakers/ cake shops. If you prefer, you can also provide a homemade cake. Please leave the cake at room temperature about 2 hours before the session to ensure the frosting is soft.
How can I prepare my child for their cake smash?
I will send a prep guide after booking your session with all the details!
Can my older children be included in the session?
At this time, milestone and cake smash sessions only focus on the baby. Parents and siblings are not included.
My child has a small scratch/ bruise on their face, is that okay?
I know bumps and bruises happen at this age! If your child has a small mark on their face, no need to worry as I am able to touch it up.
What if my child is sick/ has a fever?
If your baby has a fever or is not feeling well on the day of the session, then we need to reschedule. We will not get good results and good smiles if your baby isn’t feeling well. Please try to contact me as soon as you notice symptoms. Also, since I work closely with newborns, I need to be careful with being around germs.
How long does it take to view my images?
Your full image gallery will be ready for viewing in 3 weeks after your session. Make sure to follow ABP on social media to view sneak peeks!
