Creating Timeless Memories

OHIO milestone GALLERY


Capturing your baby’s milestone is so important as they are constantly changing. I offer a studio - based experience with full accommodation for the parents and little ones. We will try to make the sess ion fun for everyone while capturing your sweet little one!

Our #1 priority is making sure your baby is happy and comfortable. As a milestone specialist, I treat every child as if it were my own and ensure they’re handled with absolute care and attentiveness.

This is where we will schedule a time to talk about what you’re envisioning for your session. Do you plan on doing a cake smash for the one year milestone, if so what theme or color scheme would you like to incorporate?

We will learn when your child’s birthday is and when you’d like to schedule the session. Do you want to schedule the session before your child’s birthday so you can display some of the portraits at their party? Or, if you are inquiring about a 6 month milestone we will find out if baby is sitting unassisted on their own so we can put them in fun props!

The session will be styled with up to 3 outfit changes, three backdrop changes and 3 different props. We will go over all the pricing and packages with you during the phone consult. In addition, we will email all that information after we speak so you have it in writing. You will be sent a link where you can schedule your child’s milestone session online!



After setting a date, we’ll be able to discuss all the possibilities for your little one’s portraits. Do you want a gorgeous album? A stunning canvas in your living room? Whatever your needs are, we’ll be sure to encompass the perfect plan just for you!

During this time, we’ll also be able to go over any and all questions or concerns you may have! To make sure everyone looks their best and your baby bag essentials will also be discussed!

I want to make sure you are 100% confident the day of your session so that you can focus on your little one and their tiny beautiful features. So don’t be afraid to ask questions and find out everything you might want to know before your session.

Your milestone session will be fun, calm and possibly messy if we’re doing a cake smash! We will do up to 3 outfit changes/prop and backdrop changes.

I’ll have everything in my studio for you! If you are doing a cake smash I’ll list the things you can bring for that portion of the session! After the cake smash we’ll do a fun bubbles and bath session to get them cleaned up but also continue to capture some adorable portraits!

After the session , I’ll go over all the different collections with you and this is where you’ll purchase your collection/package.

Let's Create
Something Special



On average, babies will start sitting up around 6 months. We can schedule your session at 6 months and if baby isn’t starting to sit up on their own about 2 weeks before the session, we can reschedule it until they are fully sitting up on their own unsupported.

I will style the session for you!  I will also provide all the props, backdrops and outfits.

I offer two types of sessions. My Classic Session includes full family and sibling shots. This also applies to my full newborn session. While my Bundle Me Session only includes parent shots (no sibling or full family portraits).

This session is for baby only. If you’d like a sibling session that would be a separate session.

We can include some family shots for an additional fee for during your milestone session.

They are taken at my home studio located in Upper Arlington.
