Capturing infants to one year of age, I can get creative pretty much any color palette, theme, and decorations for this super exciting time of your baby's life. My studio has plenty of props, and I'm always excited to hear parents' visions that might include florals, modern, Disney, or trucks. I set up a little playground of wonder for your baby. Of course, siblings and parents are welcome to be in the photos too!
Capturing infants to one year
Miss Aria first birthday session was themed as "ONE Cute Chick" since her parents have nicknamed her Chicken. This theme was so much fun to set up!
With a mix of chicken props and florals, it was perfect for a spring cake smash session in the studio.

Mr. Owen and his mom and dad have a love for the outdoors, so it is fitting that Owen
s first birthday session be woodsy and outdoors themed!
Owens room is outdoors theme too, with touches of moose, so of course we have to include a couple of moose in the photos! Can you find the moose?
Outdoor Woodsy Theme
organic • unique • joyful
I offer sitter sessions for babies who are reaching the six-month-old milestone and first birthday and/or cake smash sessions to celebrate their first birthday. Or, if you wish to have a baby shoot any other time, my studio doors are open. It's amazing how their appearance and personalities change so much every single month. You will look back on these heart-warming images soon and wonder where the time went.
I adore baby shoots because, as well as getting gorgeous images, the whole process is so fun and joyful. From styling the shoot to seeing your little one explore the setting to spoiling them with so much attention and love, it's an experience to be cherished.

First birthday sessions are typically captured 1 month before the first birthday so ensure the images are back to you in time.

After your session you can expect a sneak peek of your images on social media within 72 hours of your session. I meticulously edit each and every image by hand with takes some time. All great things take time I like so say! I have a reputation of delivering my galleries earlier than expected, but as a rule of thumb, you can expect your final gallery will be delivered within 3-4 weeks from your session date.
If you would like to have artwork of the newborn session, now is the best time to start the process of designing your heirlooms!

Fourth of July Session
Nikki is incredibly professional and wildly talented. I love her photography style, Airy & fresh! She has photographed my wedding, maternity, and newborn, Christmas, Aaster, and first birthday and I cannot thank her enough for capturing these moments so perfectly for me and my family.
Nikki made everything so fun and easy from start to finish. As a mother we all know how challenging it can be to schedule and get to appointments but Nikki made sure to stay in contact and made the whole process super convenient and easy. She is very professional and kind. She was very helpful with our theme/colors and she was really sweet to my kids. Her studio is absolutely perfect from the atmosphere to the props and outfits for your little one. Choosing Ultimate Edge Photography was a no brainer!
