Carmel Newborn Photography | The First Year Collective

FAQs & Tips for Mamas

The First Year Collective is our most popular way to document your growing family with three full photography sessions! Our members typically choose to photograph maternity, newborn, and 12 months sessions. We encourage mamas to reach out at the beginning of their second trimester to ensure availability and allow ample time to plan your sessions.

The First Year Collective Experience

After booking your collection you will receive access to our session guide and a questionnaire to help me get to know your family. This is the time to select wardrobe and location for your first session. After receiving your questionnaire I will let you know what location will work best for your family if you are choosing an outdoor session. During your session I will guide your family through natural posing, documenting those sweet moments between you all.

Three to four weeks after your session your online gallery will be ready. This is when you will be able to choose your images and order custom artwork!
