Doesn’t it sometimes feel like your little one is growing right in front of your eyes? It’s so exciting to watch them learn and flourish. Yet at the same time, you wish you could pause time and hold on to those chubby fingers and sweet baby giggles forever.
While I haven’t yet figured out how to freeze time (I’ll let you know if I do!), my milestones mini-sessions offer the perfect chance for you to document your baby’s changing personality and features.
These milestone mini-sessions are short and sweet to accommodate your baby’s age and bubbling personality. I pride myself on providing a stress-free, no-pressure experience for babies and their parents, going with the flow and always bringing a mix of patience, experience, and quick thinking (with a little bit of bribery and silliness) into our sessions.
From slow and gentle to sing-alongs and crazy dance moves, I’m not afraid to get playful if it means capturing all of your baby’s natural, loud, vibrant expressions. Most sessions last about one hour with 2-3 (optional) outfit and set changes, and clean-up is a breeze with our fully-stocked private bathroom. (The very best part? You don’t have to worry about cleaning smashed cake off the floor and walls!)
As a mama to my own two little spitfires, Emelia and Dani, I probably don’t need to tell you that motherhood is the most amazing, rewarding, and crazy thing I’ve ever done. And it’s those fleeting moments where my wife Leigha and I can glance at each other amidst all the chaos, our faces full of love (and a little bit of that WTF factor), that I wish I could just hit pause and grab on to every detail.
That’s what I love most about what I do: helping you hold on to those subtle moments that make up a beautiful life.
Please note a $100 booking fee is required to schedule your session, with the remaining balance due on the day of the session. Family and/or sibling photos can be added for an additional fee of $100 plus tax.
While prints and packages are not included in the package price, optional add-on products such as canvas prints or wall collages can also be added. Please inquire for details and pricing.
“Wendy made us feel more then comfortable and our wedding day was captured perfectly. We loved our wedding pictures so much that since then she has done all our family pictures and stages of our children’s lives. She is so good with kids and their pictures always capture their spirit perfectly."
"My biggest fear was that our daughter would be fussy the whole time and we wouldn’t be able to get any decent shots. Wendy was more than accommodating though and let us take the time we needed to make sure she felt comfortable. She also made the most of our candid moments which turned out to be some of the best photos!"
"Thank you for being a part of our family traditions and milestones. Your photos are just so beautiful and we cherish them in our home!"
"We're so thrilled with our photos and the whole experience with working with Wendy. She's truly amazing at what she does. It was amazing to see her chat and work with our little girl, who is naturally shy. Wendy took such great care and patience to ease her out of her shell. We now have a collection of photos that really capture her real "spunky" personality, that we're seeing grow day by day. I know Jenna will love looking at them when she's older too. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much Wendy!"
"The photos are breathtaking! I ugly mom cried all morning over them! Each one is perfect and it was such an wonderful experience."
Absolutely! Milestone sessions make a perfect gift for anyone. Please reach out here to inquire about gift certificates.
A cake smash is exactly what it sounds like — a chance for your child to have a little bit of messy fun to celebrate their special day! If you choose to book a Cake Smash, decorations and a small, frosted cake in the colors of your choice are included.
I make and decorate the little cakes myself, in my own kitchen. If you have a theme in mind for your child’s birthday and want it reflected in your cake, it’s best to have a store, family member, or friend decorate the cake.
You can choose to do a stand-alone cake smash session, or add a 20-minute cake smash to your milestone session for an additional small fee.
I’m a mom, too, and I know that getting little ones to cooperate when you want them to can be difficult sometimes. But I promise that your photo session doesn’t have to be stressful and that I’m here to help this be a fun experience for you and your child.
Particularly for these milestone sessions, I like to keep things short and sweet, paying careful attention to your baby’s mood throughout the session. Sometimes we’ll slow things down, other things we’ll get a little extra silly. I try to keep things as pressure- and stress-free as possible for everyone involved!
You’re welcome to dress your baby any way you’d like. Though, keep in mind that Cake Smash sessions tend to get very, very messy!
Nope! My studio is fully stocked with props, and even if your child literally obliterates their birthday cake, I have baby wipes, fresh towels, and baby bath soap available in our private bathroom so that you can clean them up before taking them home!
A stand-alone Cake Smash session results in a minimum of 20 professionally-edited, high-resolution digital images, whereas a Milestone mini-session gives us closer to 30 images. If you choose to add a cake smash to your Milestone Mini, you’ll have up to 50 images to choose from.
You’ll be given all of these images in a convenient and private online gallery, where you can download all your favorites.
Absolutely! Parents and/or siblings are welcome to be involved in the session for an additional fee of $100 plus tax. Please let me know ahead of time (upon booking, if possible) whether you’d like to have parents or siblings involved in the session.
Yes, all of the high resolution, fully-edited professional files are provided as part of every milestone session with Edgewood Studio. They are made available to you via digital download from a secure and private online gallery. A signed release form will be provided, giving you full printing and duplication rights to your photos.
I have a wide range of professional display and wall art products available in my Goodie Collection, including options that are difficult to find anywhere else. Please inquire for details, pricing, and information.
I aim to have your photo sessions complete and ready for viewing within 2-3 weeks after your session. I recommend booking 4-6 weeks in advance if you’d like to show off your milestone photos at a birthday party.
I would love to help you turn these fleeting, irreplaceable moments into treasured memories. I recommend booking your milestone session about 2-3 weeks in advance so we have time to chat and coordinate details.
