At Milestone Portrait Art & Design, we truly believe there is not a moment more magical than when one becomes a parent. It is an honor to be a part of capturing this amazing process, and documenting one of the most special times in life. Newborns are incredible creatures. They teach us so much about human nature, the essence of life, and living in the present. Our job in photographing these wonderful little people goes far beyond just snapping a few shots of your new family member; we aim to capture a unique moment in time and the emotions along with it.
The photos from your session will become a family treasure to be enjoyed again and again. Milestone Portrait Art & Design is no ordinary studio. With 22 years of experience under our belts, including training to become a certified professional photographer with workshops and classes on a regular basis, we create original works of art in a heartfelt and professional manner. We are excited and priviledged to share a moment in your family's new journey.
We schedule a 3 hour block for your photo session, even though it may take half the time to capture everything you want. We do this so there is extra time if the baby is fussy or not sleeping well.
Within your appointment, we will set up 4+ different scenes with coordinating wraps, headbands, bonnets, teddy bears, etc. We can photograph each scene with just your newborn or add in family members for one or two sets. We supply all wraps, posing props, backdrops, etc so you do not need to worry about a thing day of. You're welcome to bring a particular item if you would like your baby photographed with it.
