The

CHERISHED
1st YEAR

Gallery

The first year of your baby’s life will be full of changes! Its important to document every stage, from a tiny little newborn to a rambunctious one year old full of personality.

MAC Photography would be honored to help you preserve these special memories. The Cherished First Year Collection uniquely documents the different stages of your baby’s personality and key milestones. The Cherished Year includes three sessions during the first year of life to capture milestones such as tummy time, sitting, standing, and first birthday cake smashes.

It also includes a complimentary family session during the child’s second and third year, and some some amazing year end gifts. It’s the perfect way to document your journey together!

YOUR QUESTIONS

I’m sure you have a million questions! I recommend filling out the contact form below so I can call you to chat about all the details. In the meantime I have listed some of my most frequently asked question below.

Does the cherished year collection include newborn portraits?
No the Cherished Year does not include a Newborn Session. Newborn portraits are very intricate and sensitive and therefore require several hours to capture. Each of the 3 Cherished Year sessions include up to a 1 hour portrait.
How are the 3 cherished year portraits split up during the first year?
It’s completely different for everyone and depends on the age of your baby when you inquire. The goal of the Cherished Year Collection is to capture all your baby’s milestone- tummy time, sitting, standing, and their cake smashing. These milestone can typically be captured at 4 months, 8 months, and 12 month yet every child is different. Let’s chat and I can tell you exactly when your portraits should be scheduled!
What if my baby is early or late to hit their milestones?
Don’t worry I am flexible! I have been photographing babies for longer then I like to admit and completely understand each child is unique and accomplishes milestone at a different rate. I will absolutely work around their personal growth!
Can we do siblings and family portraits during the session?

Absolutely, the more the merrier! Family and child photography is my jam!

Are all of these session captured inside the Portrait studio?

Yes and no! Yes they are all captured at my studio but do not need to be captured all inside my studio. That’s one of the perks working with MAC Photography, I have both an inside studio as well as an outdoor studio. I can give you two completely different looks all within one session! Inside is where you would have access to all of my stylized scenes and outdoors is where you can utilize my beautiful landscape full with a rustic barn, tall fields of grass, and even a vintage rope swing!
