You're here, which means you have realized that the phases of childhood go FAST! I learned first hand that the old saying, "The days are long, but the years are short" is very true! You probably woke up one day and it hit you that your baby didn't need burped anymore or that your big kid didn't need a goodbye kiss. How did that happen? In the blink of an eye, our kids have changed. I'm sure you want to hold on to those last milestones as long as you can. You are in the right place. I will make sure your photos show your child's personal development and one of a kind personality! See for yourself!
If you are like most of my clients, you have a specific taste with a style in mind for your child's session. Whether it is simple milestone portraits, a theme, or a cake smash, I take pride in customizing each session to make it unique to you.
Let me hear what you are thinking! I know you already have some ideas for your child's portrait or milestone session. And if you aren't sure of what you want, don't fret! I can answer all of your questions and let you know how I can serve you. We will discuss the best time for your session and the style of photos that interests you. So, let's connect and figure out the best session for you and your child!
1. Say Hello

2. CHOOSE YOUR STYLE
You have two options for your child's session.
Classic Child Portraits are timeless and minimalistic in nature. I use basic backdrops and very few props.
Themed and Cake Smash Sessions are fun and stylish! Pick a theme or colors you would like to use and I will design the set for your session. Due to allergies, the client is responsible for providing the cake. Yes, you can do the session without cake, too!
A paid session fee and signed agreement are required to secure your session. Your desired session date is not reserved until these are complete. The session fee covers the time and talent of the photographer, as well as full use of the studio and props.
Most sessions take place at 1:00 on weekdays and a limited number of Saturdays each month.
3. BOOK YOUR SESSION
I offer a variety of backdrops to match your taste and style. Upon booking, you will receive a questionnaire in your inbox. This will help me plan sets that are matched to you.
During the session I will make it fun and engaging for your child. We will listen to music, chat, and play while your child gets comfortable in front of the camera. I strongly believe in letting your child adjust to the new studio environment and this strange lady that's holding a camera! I will take my time and watch for signs that your child is ready to be photographed.
4. UNIQUE SESSION
Within a week after your session you will get a link in your inbox for your proofing gallery. You will then select your favorite images that you would like for final editing. Once you know how many photos you love, you will purchase the digital collection and products for those photos. The final edited images will be ready for your viewing pleasure within 3 weeks after you have made your purchase. Printed products may take 1-2 weeks longer to arrive. I try my best to get final photos back to my clients in a very timely manner!

ELEGANT CAKE SMASH
Amora's mom brought along her favorite photo from Amora's newborn session I did the year before. I set up the same backdrop for some milestone photos before bringing out the cake. Right from the start Amora was happy and cooperative! After some "clean" photos she got to smash her cake. Amora was so excited and gave me the best cheese faces!
NEMO THEME ONE YEAR SESSION
I was so excited to design this set for Hudson! His mom booked several months in advance for his one year milestone, so I had time to get really creative. Hudson was pretty serious, but his mom told me that's just his personality. Together, we were able to get him smiling, though. It just took some clapping, singing, and snacks!
TWINKLE TWINKLE FAMILY SET
Amir's mom requested a twinkle twinkle little start theme in the colors grey, blue, and white. When they arrived at the studio she was so happy to see that the set also represented the flag of their home country, Somalia. Amir was wearing such adorable outfits for his one year milestone photos. I started with family and individual photos before breaking out the cake. Amir's favorite part was the bubble splash after the cake!
Stacey was so awesome to work with! We ended up purchasing extra photos because we couldn't choose, they were all so amazing! Our 14 month old is terrible to try and get professional photos and she got some great smiles out of him and even the serious shots were so beautiful! Her studio is comfortable and easy to locate! I would absolutely recommend her for any photo needs!
CHILD AND FAMILY SESSION
Loved how gentle Stacey was with my kids! Very responsive to my emails before and after pictures! Most importantly, the quality was worth what I paid! Can’t wait for their next birthday. Thank you ,Stacey !
I highly recommend Stacey Ash Photography. She has taken in-home newborn, as well as in-studio 6 month follow up photos for us, and we couldn't be more pleased with her photography. She is accommodating, makes you feel relaxed, and is so understanding and charming to work with. All friends and family of ours have raved about the photos she's taken of our family, so we look forward to our next session with her!
SIX mONTH SITTER SESSION
Stacey is AMAZING at what she does. She takes the time and the kids just love her. We have done family photos, newborn sessions, and our 3 year old photos and all have turned out absolutely stunning. I will never go anywhere else!
CHILD MILESTONE SESSION
We used Stacey for our son’s new born photos as well as his one year photos and we could not be more pleased! Stacey truly takes into consideration what your vision is as well as offers ideas. She takes such wonderful photos it is difficult to choose which ones to purchase! Her patients with the children is wonderful as well. We have multiple photos taken by her around the house. We will definitely be using Stacey for our future photo needs!
