THE HEIRLOOM ALBUM

This is perhaps one of my favorite parts of the entire collection. You'll choose your favorite images from each of your Milestone sessions and I'll curate the design to best tell your story.

Imagine your little one being able to flip through its pages to see mom + dad finding out about the pregnancy, all the way through the birth experience + newborn family photos. This is a timeless piece that can be passed on for generations to come! I like to call it "The Ultimate Baby Book!"

Once we become official after booking your collection, look out for a sweet little package in the mail welcoming you to your Milestone Collection experience! It will also include a detailed guide on what to expect for each of your sessions, prepping for baby, and more!


Welcome to the milestone family, mama!

You're In!

THE PROCESS

I'll prep you with what to expect, style inspiration and access to my Client Closet, location suggestions, and much more. PS - your secret (and images) are safe with me until you're ready to share the big news!

we'll begin with your announcement or maternity session depending on your collection choice.

Announcement Session

THE PROCESS

VIEW NEXT STEP

I recommend scheduling your maternity session for late second or early third trimester. We don't want to push it too close in case baby decides to come early! Choose from bump friendly dresses in the Client Closet and I'll help you coordidnate outfits with your partner too. :)

around 28-34 weeks

Maternity Session

THE PROCESS

VIEW NEXT STEP

If you opt for birth to be a part of your collection, we will meet beforehand to go over your birth preferences to help best support you through labor + delivery. I'll go on call within 3 weeks of your due date. Whether I attend your birth as your photographer/doula or not, I will be praying for you and a positive, healthy delivery! 

the very best part, of course!

Birth Of Your Baby

THE PROCESS

VIEW NEXT STEP

I suggest scheduling our newborn session for 7-14 days after baby's birth. Typically a good guess for the calendar is 7-10 days after your due date. I'll give you time to settle into a routine before you need to stress about being photo ready! I'll bring your dress selection and newborn wraps so all you need to do is get yourself ready and I'll take care of the rest!

7-14 days from baby's arrival

Newborn Session

THE PROCESS

We can plan an additional family session for when baby is a few months old. I love this time because it's when they begin to smile and have a little personality! Family sessions can be scheduled any time within their first 6 months.

within 6 months of baby's birth.

It usually takes 3-4 weeks from when the order is placed for your album to arrive at your doorstep. But it will be well worth the wait and will feel just like Christmas morning when you get your hands on this most precious baby book ever!

Becoming a Milestone Mama

welcome

- courtney r.

We were so incredibly pleased with Chelsea's professionalism, yet friendly and nurturing nature. She's so great at guiding us on what poses are best  and even helping us with picking out our outfits. The best was receiving our photo album, which we look at ALL THE TIME! Looking forward to becoming a Milestone Mama again!"

"We absolutely LOVED our entire Milestone experience.

- payton h.

We booked a Milestone Collection so we could easily relive the sweet moments of expecting our first baby. Chelsea made me & my husband feel so comfortable during every photo shoot, and was even someone I could lean on to discuss my difficult delivery during the newborn session."

"The cherry on top was the beautiful heirloom album at the end!

 From the announcement to maternity to newborn photos, we were blown away by the images we received. We could not be more thankful that we now have these photos to remember this special season of our lives forever!"

"When we got pregnant, we knew we wanted Chelsea to capture the memories of our new adventure!

hear from past milestone mamas

become a milestone mama

Becoming a mama to Sylas has been the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced and it's been such a pivotal season in my life. I've never felt such conflicting emotions at the same time -- already nostalgic for how little my son was yesterday, yet anxiously awaiting the milestones he has yet to reach as he grows.

I wish I could relive his birth (well, maybe not the 30 hrs of labor part) to feel that incredible, spiritual, overwhelming rush of love over and over again. I want to bottle up all of these sweet moments during these ever so fleeting days so that they never feel far away. To me, the closest thing to doing that is through photographs! Which is why I am so very grateful we invested in documenting our whole journey to parenthood with professional images.

why I created

MY WHY

THE MILESTONE COLLECTION

Now that I have experienced these things myself it gives me a whole new perspective and gets me even more excited to provide both imagery + support for my clients!

The best part about this package is we will get to work together for the next TEN months or more! We will work together for each of your photo sessions, potentially even talk through the birth experience, and you will receive the most beautiful album to cherish each of those moments for the years to come. I don't take it lightly that you would be letting me in on such a special, intimate, and vulnerable part of your life. So yes, I might tear up a little when I get that booking e-mail from you. I can't wait to see your sweet belly grow, witness you fall even more deeply in love with your partner, and watch you step into this new role as a mama as you receive God's greatest gift!

I know you are probably nervous to take this next step because it might mean you are spilling the beans to someone about your big news. But please know that your secret is SAFE with me and I won't tell a soul until your announcement photos are officially out in the world!

I am incredibly honored that you are interested in having me along this crazy, beautiful ride with you. I cannot wait to document the most joy and greatest love you've ever felt.
