how it works

we'll start with your in-person consultation

Settle into a comfy chair in the studio's living room and relax with a cup of tea or coffee - or maybe a nice lemonade in the summer. We'll start a conversation about what makes your family unique, which themes you want to bring to life, and how best to create beautiful images to transfer onto custom heirloom art for your home - that's the goal of each session!

choose your session type:

While we specialize in newborns, sessions for children and families are also available to help you preserve all the stages of your family's growth. It's an honor to work with your family as it grows and changes.

  • Newborn Session - studio only, may include parents and/or siblings
  • Milestone Session  - Tummy Time, Sitting Up, First Birthday, or any milestone you'd like to celebrate!
  • Family Session - in studio or on location

Once we create a plan, payment of the $750 creative fee - which includes product credit - will formally book your session date, or pencil in your due date - you'll let us know when baby arrives. Click here for more on when to book your newborn session and what to expect.


your creative fee books your date...

...and includes up to 4 hours in studio - expect to spend the most time for your newborn, a little less for Family and Milestone sessions - patience is key in making this fun and enjoyable for everyone. Breaks to feed, change diapers, or take a moment to regroup are welcome and expected. This fee also includes processing and preparation of your images and your Design & Ordering appointment - plus a piece of Wall Art or Printable Digital Portrait, or studio credit towards a larger collection. 


it's time to design your heirloom art!

You'll return to the studio after your session to view the images we created. Your choice of portraits for your gallery will determine the time required to create it. Each tiny gallery is a labor of love and requires many, many hours to complete. They are completely worth the wait, though - only the best for your tiny human, right? 

 All decision makers must be present, as we'll complete your order at that time. Together, we'll design custom art that fits your needs and style by virtually projecting your tiny human's portraits onto your own walls. Click here for instructions on photographing your walls. If you decide on an heirloom album, you'll be able to see each page before it's finalized. Products are available a la carte, or you may choose The Essential Collection for even more value. 

In the digital age, prints are more important than ever. Art is meant to be lived with and enjoyed, not stored in a drawer on technology that will eventually corrupt. Portraiture in your living space fills you with joy, and keeps your memories alive long after the moment has passed. When your children see themselves proudly displayed in your home, they'll feel loved, and their self esteem will grow.

*Pricing is subject to change at any time. 6% PA sales tax and applicable shipping costs will be added to order at checkout. Due to the custom nature of these products, all sales are final.
