Documenting Baby’s First Year with the SAP Collective | Baby Photography in Austin

I’m so excited to share a little bit about my most popular option for expecting families- the SAP First Year Collective. I introduced this new option for baby photography here in Austin last year, and I’m SO glad I did!

It has already been such an honor to document my first Collective members as baby grows from bump to newborn. Many of their 6 month sitter sessions are coming up now and I’m thrilled because its such a fun age to photograph!

Baby’s first year goes by so fast. Trust me- I know! It feels like yesterday that my own children were that young. Looking at portraits from my kids’ first year immediately bring me back to that season of life. They remind me of the excitement and anticipation to hold your baby, the little features my kids so quickly grew out of, and the sweet sounds of them giggling during those first steps.

The best part of the First Year Collective is that it ensures you won’t miss documenting a single one of those milestones.

Instead of planning just one luxury portrait experience for your newest arrival, the First Year Collective ensures you have a full service experience every time.

Milestone Baby Photography in Austin

The First Year Collective is so helpful to make sure all of the big milestones throughout baby’s first year are documented in a way that is easy for you. Options include maternity, newborn, 6 month/sitter and first birthday sessions.

One of my favorite ways to ensure baby’s first year is treasured for generations is with a custom-designed album. With each session, we add your favorite images to the design. By the end of the year you have a beautiful heirloom album without having to lift a finger!

Another option to preserve these memories is with a wall art design that can grow over time. Custom gallery walls include installation to make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy your images.

I have invested my heart and soul into serving busy mothers, and no where is the need for full service more obvious than in that blissful first year of baby’s life while you adjust to life with a little one. Whether its your first baby or you’re a seasoned parent, documenting these milestones is more important than ever.
