Grow With Me - The Heirloom Company

Our Grow With Me Session Sets are for the babies who grow up too fast. Before you know it, your baby is now tall enough to pull their sippy cup off the kitchen counter, and exactly when did they start dressing themselves?! It all goes by so, so quickly. That makes for great pictures. We never rush any of our clients during any of their sessions.

We want you to have the absolute best experience, feel relaxed, and have a little fun while you’re with us! We allow time for breaks so you and your little one can have some time to relax and refresh; eat a snack, take a bottle, get changed, or just lay around for a few minutes.

I will spend a few extra minutes with your little one so they will feel comfortable- this allows me to capture the best expressions! I encourage parents to bring special items from home, like a favorite toy and a favorite blanket, to help personalize your session. We can provide props if you would like, or you can provide your own (or both!).

Maternity Session. We recommended you schedule your maternity portrait session in the late second or early third trimester (27-32 weeks). You want to be clearly showing, but still feel comfortable enough to enjoy the session. If your maternity session is during the winter months, opt for form-fitting warm clothes instead of bulky jackets and shirts that totally hide your shape. If your session is during the summer months, wear something light enough that you won’t sweat half to death.

We allow extra time for outfit changes during our maternity sessions, to ensure you look and feel your best when the camera starts capturing. We recommend you bring a brush, paper or blotting towels, and make-up bag to your session to freshen up when needed.   Battery-powered fans are encouraged during summer months. We will provide cold bottled water.

Newborn Session. Your tiny miracle has arrived! Newborn portraits should be captured within the first 10 days of birth. About 6 weeks before your due date, contact me and we will stay in close contact. Even while you are still in the hospital after the birth, we should discuss setting a session date the following week.

If baby has to visit the NICU, we can still arrange photos, and you won’t lose the opportunity for newborn photos. The day of your newborn’s first portrait session, please try to keep your baby awake as much as possible and feed the baby within 30 minutes of the session. This will help ensure your newborn sleeps well during the session so that we can get those beautiful sleepy baby images.

Cake Smash Session. Your child’s first birthday portraits include a cake smash. Feel free to bring extras, like balloons or a hat or crown. Diaper covers, a bib, or tuts are all cute things to wear for this extra special occasion. Don’t worry about making a mess – that’s the best part! If the session is in our studio, we will provide a place to wash up and change after.

This session is perfect for Mamas who want to capture their little one's delivery! Our photographer will be on stand-by and arrive with enough time to capture delivery  (or shortly after, if you prefer), and those precious first moments when you hold your baby for the first time.
