The studio Experience

There are so many milestones as a new parent that you'll want to document for your little one. The newborn stage of course because you want to remember just how little they were. Then, a few months later, they start to roll over and have the cutest facial expressions. When they turn half a year old or so, they are able to sit up on their own and that huge milestone deserves to be documented. And the best milestone of all- one year. Not only is it a huge milestone because they are standing on their own or starting to walk, but YOU deserve to be celebrated as you have made it through your first year of parenthood. That first year is so special and so many of my studio clients choose to document those beginning days and months.

with your little one

Let's chat about your child's upcoming milestone. Whether it is a newborn session, a one year cake smash session, or even a birthday portrait session down the road, I'd love to document this time in their life. Fill out the contact form so we can chat about your vision. For all sessions, I suggest getting on my calendar no later than 2 months before the session date/ due date. You can always reach out sooner though! 

1. Say Hello

2. Newborn sessions

For newborn sessions, I provide everything we'll need in my studio. I have backdrop paper, swaddles, props, and more! If you have color preferences like loving yellow or not being a fan of pink, I keep that in mind when setting up for your session. Each newborn session includes family or sibling poses and then 3 posed sets.  I'll also do my best to get details of baby, like their little feet and hands! 

3. Milestone sessions

Milestone sessions typically happen at 6 months and one year. 

At their 6 month session, baby is typically sitting up (even if they need a little bit of help) and we can get photos with them laying on their belly looking at the camera. You'll see a huge change from newborn to 6 months so I highly recommend documenting these 2 stages. 

4. One year cake smash

The one year portrait and cake smash session is my favorite! Baby has changed so much over the first year and now you can really see their personality. For this session, you can choose a themed set (like rubber ducky or space themed) or you can do a very neutral set up. 


While newborn, 6 month, and one year sessions are the most popular studio sessions, they aren't the only option! I have had maternity studio sessions, birthday portrait sessions for kids older than one, and themed sessions like glitter or preschool grad sessions. The possibilities are endless with studio sessions! I love working in the studio because we don't have to worry about the weather ruining our plans and we don't have to fight the sun so our start time is super flexible.

The Process

BUMP TO BABY starts at $999

studio Sessions start at $275


All newborn sessions are done in studio and typically happen 7-14 days after baby is born. Sessions last about 2 hours, but can go longer if needed. We listen to baby and allow baby to feed and be soothed as needed. We'll get family and sibling poses first and then 3 posed sets of just baby. Sessions include 20 edited images.

"Rachael took our wedding pictures and they are absolutely stunning. She captured our day so perfectly. Everything so bright and colorful and authentic. I've shared them with friends and family and everyone is amazed by how wonderful they are. She was punctual, an excellent communicator, and knew how to capture all of the best little moments from our day. I whole heartedly recommend Rachael!"

"Rachael has the best eye and knows her way around light! We had the absolute best experience working with her. She made us look great and and feel comfortable and captured all of the sweet, loving, fun, and silly moments of the day as well as the most gorgeous detail shots. She got us over 50 sneak peeks in 24 hours and they were impeccable! She is super easy to work with and so sweet. If you're considering booking Rachael, don't hesitate! I can't say enough amazing things about her!" 

"Rachael was amazing!! From engagement till the big day! My wedding day flew by, but Rachael captured all of our special moments and it was so nice looking through our albums with my husband. Very responsive, very sweet, and will provide exactly what you’re looking for on such a special day! We’ll now have these photos to remember such an important day and it’s all thanks to Rachael Mitchell Photography!"
