Every Step Package – Joy & Kris and Baby Whitney

When a little one arrives into the world, it’s only natural to want to document every step of their growing journey. That’s why Joy and Kris chose me to be their photographer and selected the Every Step Package. The six sessions they picked were maternity, newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months. I have been blessed to photograph baby Whitney’s life along with her parents for a whole year and it’s been a joy “Every Step” of the way. I’m looking forward to capturing the next steps in this beautiful family’s life as well. We had good laughs, smiles, Kris thinking we were nuts, and a new friendship.

Details on the Every Step Package

Capture every step of your newborn, from maternity to two years of age. You pick the six sessions that you want to capture for the milestones of your baby, and I’m yours to photograph them. 

Why in the world would you want to do this?

It is amazing to see how quickly a child changes as they grow! Doing only three portrait sessions doesn’t show how much they fully change during the first two years of life, so why not capture all those milestones and every step they are making? They are little once and they honestly grow up way too fast. Plus, I’ll be here to take care of the photography details while you simply enjoy.

What is included?

  1. Six sessions of your pick (maternity, newborn, 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months or 2 year)
  2. An incredible storybook that is handmade in Italy from GraphiStudio with images from each session.
  3. USB drive that includes five of your favorite images from each session. This includes a print release, so you can print the images wherever you would like.    
  4. Birthday Cake Smash, which includes a cake that is locally made and designed by Dutch Maid Bakery in Sauk Rapids. You help design the cake by picking the colors you want on it!
  5. 20% off prints ordered through me.

Even though memories fade away with age, your albums and prints will last forever. That’s why it’s so important to capture “Every Step” of your baby’s life, so it can be treasured for generations.

Why did you pick me for your photographer? You had the maternity dresses that I could use and didn’t have to go buy any.

Would you use my services again? Yes

If someone asked you about my portrait business what would you tell them? That she is very flexible with scheduling. The sessions were never rushed. She gives the time that is needed to get the images and the extra time when a break is needed. 

Why did you pick the Every Step Package? I wanted the images that were professional and not the candids that I would post on Facebook. I wanted to be able to see the changes from every milestone, so I can see those transformations in how Whitney changed. The storybook that I receive I can see all those right in front of me and have that keepsake.

“I told Alison that I wish I would have gone to JcPenney, so I wouldn’t have to pick through so many images and have a hard time deciding what portraits to select. Oh, we had some good laughs and Alison knew I was 100% kidding.” —Joy
