Baby Milestone Session



With brand new babies come change and your child will be changing daily! Fresh baby smiles, new words, sparkly new teeth popping through, there are so many things that develop within your childs first year and there's a limited amount of time to capture those memories! With the various milestone session options available you can choose which one is perfect for you as well as add on other options to ensure you're capturing everything you'd like.

Your Session: Depending on which package you choose, it will include several different sessions. You're welcome to view the pricing on each individual sessions if you'd like or you can choose to bundle them together and save money on them! 

What To Bring: Bring any type of props you have in mind for your shoot. Keep in mind that smaller babies/kids are fun to keep a theme with throughout their first year. I try to suggest bringing the same stuffed animal for growth comparison or some other fun object or onsies! This is the type of shoot where you can never have enough props, hats, blankets, diaper covers and other cute baby mementos. If you're looking for a uniquely themed session to fit babies room or parents taste please bring that up so we can plan and get it set up for you! If you're having trouble with coming up with prop ideas be sure to let me know and we can brainstorm together. I have a couple of contacts that offer great baby photography props and baby items. 

Time & Location: I do a lot of indoor shooting for newborns and other milestone sessions so please keep in mind that I'd love to come to your house but we need a lot of light. If you have a perfect place with a big window that's great and that's the best option. If we need to go longer than the the time allotted I will honor that as I want to make sure we get the perfect photographs. We can agree on a location choice or if you have several places in mind we can arrange something that works. If you have a specific place that has sentimental value or significance to your make sure you let me know and we'll be sure to incorporate it into the shoot. 

Session Fees: A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to book your session with the remaining balance due on the day of your session, prior to starting. The items listed below are what your session will cover. I will honor the session price quoted if you've requested one but prices are subject to change.

Session Fee Includes:
  • One to two hours of shoot time for each session
  • Studio Time or Other Location As Discussed
  • Unlimited use of props on-hand
  • Edited high resolution images from each session
  • Black and white conversions of all edited photos
  • Album located on my website with all of your images displayed, we can add pass code if you'd like as well
  • Prints ordered off of the website at lab cost (They're set at my cost level so you're getting professional lab quality prints at a major discount)
  • Photographer's time, talent, editing and travel expense :)
  • 25% Discount on all print products for the month after your session is completed

          Extras: Something new I've launched this past year in 2014 is that I am no longer offering a cd with full print rights included in my packages. To read more about my reasons for choosing to change this please read my post with the details. Instead I've choosen a "a la carte" style package so you can pick and choose what you'd like to include with your purchasing from your session.
          • Social Media Digital Downloads - Price Located On Website 
            These are low resolution files with Dirt Road Photogrpahy logo on them to be used for social media sites. These are mainly intended for those who are wanting to share what fun they had during their session but don't have intentions of ordering other digital related prints.
          • CD with all edited images and full copyright release - $75
            This is for you to take your images and have them printed wherever you prefer. I realize that a lot of people have worked with other photographers and this is simply the easiest way for you to receive hard copies of your photograph's but 85% of clients do not even print their photos. I highly suggest printing them right away!
          • Prints off of website - 25% Discount 
            This is something I offer for all sessions so you can get lab quality prints at a lower price. I like to give clients a discount to encourage them to order right away so they don't forget! It's also a nice way to share with family members that they're welcome to order prints for themselves as well!
          • Proof book- $45
            Some people like to have a book to show others what they can order from their session, it's also a great way to have all your pictures printed into one book to look at later and share with friends
          • Additional Edits - $10/image
            If you would like more images than allotted per package we can add them onto your session. Keep in mind that by adding more images to your session it may take longer for you to receive them as I will need more time to complete your session.
          • Specialty Products - Prices Vary
            There are so many customized fun products we can do with your pictures so make sure to check out the link with other product ideas. From phone cases to customized invitations we can do it all!
