Thank you for booking your milestone session with Becky Zeugin Photography! These sessions are so much fun! I love capturing sweet smiles and documenting milestones! Please note that the milestone session is for the baby only. Sibling pictures can be added for $50 per child or $100 for family.
The session will generally last 45-60 minutes depending on the child. We will take a break or two during a full session, for a drink and/or snack. It’s always better to take a little break if your child gets cranky or fussy – an unhappy child is not likely to calm down while the camera is pointed at him or her and every one in the room is begging for smiles. But usually after a a little break and comforting, he or she will be ready for more photos.
I will need your help during the session by getting your child/baby’s attention, waving toys in child’s line of sight, and singing or other tricks to coax smiles. If the baby is crawling and/or walking be prepared to help with keeping the baby in front of the camera! Feel free to bring a few of the babies favorite toys to help with keeping their attention during the session.
The session usually allows for two to three different outfits/setups. Feel free to bring several different outfits, even if we don’t use all of them, we can coordinate which ones will work best at the session. I also have several diaper covers, tutus, petti-skirts/rompers, etc that we can also use for the session.
Cake Smash – If you would like to include a cake smash at the end of the session you can bring your own cake or purchase one through me. If you bring your own I recommend bringing a small smash cake and balloons. A smash cake can be ordered through almost any baker, just ask for a “smash cake” and they should know what you need. When ordering the cake it’s best to choose a cake that is mostly icing and not fondant. Icing will make a better mess and babies tend to choke on fondant. Also, I would suggest a white cake over chocolate. Chocolate cake can sometimes look like dirt and white cake just photographs better.
You may also want to bring balloons that coordinate with the smash cake and outfit. Make sure the colors of the cake and balloons coordinate with the outfit you have chosen for the session. If you need assistance with picking out colors feel free to send me pictures of what you have and we can pick out the best colors together.
The address for the studio is 107 1/2 E Virginia Street McKinney, TX 75069. The entrance is located in between Cynthia Elliott’s Boutique and The Little Red Hen.
