Is that saying about "babies grow fast" becoming way too true these days? Before you know it your tiny newborn has started rolling, smiling, sitting up, eating solid foods, pulling up, standing and even that big exciting milestone: walking.
No matter what stage your baby is currently in, we're here to help you document every stage, both big and small.
Our milestone sessions are quick 15-20 minute shoots in our custom lifestyle studio.
We show you your baby's images immediately afterward! And you'll pick your favorites to have printed for your walls.
We strive to make this an experience that you will treasure and remember through the artwork we create together.
To capture all of baby's milestones, both big and small, book a bundle of 3 milestone sessions and save $100!
We recommend planning sessions when babies are smiling, sitting & standing
We believe that the memories you are investing in should be seen and enjoyed every single day!
Most of our clients choose one of our collection packages with the choice of displaying your favorites in an Heirloom Album or as matted portraits in a 11×14 Reveal Box.
In addition to our collections we offer custom wall galleries designed specifically for your home
using our unique software to show you choices to scale on your very own walls.
You only purchase what you LOVE and every image purchased, no matter the format, arrives with it’s matching digital file to share with family and friends
The design & ordering appointment is hands down our favorite part of the entire process. This is where we show you your images for the first time and help guide you in choosing the very best keepsake products for your home and family.
We believe this is the part that absolutely shouldn't be skipped and sets our services apart from other photographers! We begin with a small slideshow with ideas for wall galleries, albums then go through each image one by one, helping you choosing the very best of the best.

When should I schedule my milestone photos?
What if my baby cries the whole time?
Anything you want- or nothing at all! If there's an outfit, special lovey or anything in particular you'd like us to photograph please bring it along. But if you just want some adorable photos of your baby in their birthday suit or in an outfit from our client closet you can show up with just a baby in your arms and we'll do the rest.
What do I need to bring?
We understand that stuff comes up and will do our very best to get you rescheduled whenever possible. We ask that you please use the “better safe than sorry” mindset and reschedule if you or another family member is sick.
Your baby's safety is our number one priority. We thoroughly clean and sanitize between sessions, wear masks the entire time we're holding your baby and are safety certified in both newborn photography posing as well as infant CPR.
We love family sessions, mom and me, sibling shots and all that good stuff. If you're wanting to all jump in, please schedule a family session instead of a milestone so we have enough time for all the combinations.
What if I need to reschedule?
Can the whole family be included?
We always suggest scheduling your baby's photos around their normal nap routine, feeding them a nice big breakfast or lunch and arriving at the studio well fed and well rested. Sometimes babies have off days though and that's ok. We're happy to reschedule you to come back another day to try again if we just can't get them settled.
How long does the session last?
We let the babies tell us! Most of them are good for about 15 minutes before they no longer want to sit and smile and the intrigue of the a new place wears off. We find this to be plenty of time to get lots of great shots.
About 15 minutes! With milestone sessions we'll do your viewing and ordering appointment directly after the photoshoot so you get to see them and pick favorites that very same day.
How long does it take to see my images?
Wait, Viewing Session? What’s that?
Your images are finalized 7-10 days after your ordering appointment and sent via web gallery for your approval. Once product orders have been placed, we generally have albums and collection boxes ready for you in about 3-4 weeks. Please allow 8-10 weeks for custom framing and wall art. Once everything arrives we will let you know that it is ready for pickup at the Glean Studio.
Once my order is placed how long does it take to arrive?
All images that you purchase get basic color correction and cleanup for stray hairs, tiny blemishes, baby acne etc. If you would like us to do anything else, say the word! Extensive retouching is available for an additional fee.
Yes, all of our collections are available with or without the physical products. While we highly encourage creating a keepsake art piece for your child, it is ultimately your decision.
Our base milestone session includes 1 digital file of your favorite image + a matching 8x10 fine art print. If that's all you want and need, that's ok by us! We want you to walk away with only the artwork you absolutely love and cherish.
How much editing do you do to the images?
Is there a minimum purchase required?
Can I just buy digital files?
A viewing session or ordering appointment is when we meet with you and any other household decision makers to look at your images together for the first time and place your artwork order. It takes place at the Glean studio or at your own home by special request. At this session you’ll see the products we offer, choose your favorite images, request any changes you might have and we’ll place the order the very same day with cash, check or card.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! We are happy to work with your budget and create a payment plan that works for your family. All physical products are delivered after the payment plan is complete.
Thank you so much for your message! We look forward to responding within 48 business hours!
