Because your baby deserves the best

savor every milestone

first year collective

You want to remember every sweet little detail, but you know that if you blink, you'll miss it. It’s amazing how much a baby changes in a year. She goes from a tiny thing sleeping in your arms to a little person full of personality before you can even begin to wrap your head around what’s happening.

The first Year Collective is perfect for moms who never want to forget a moment. You never want to forget how she felt snuggled up in your arms. How amazing it was when her eyes lit up with joy when she saw you smile. How proud you were at each milestone, from sitting to crawling, to walking on her own.

You want to remember the hard days, but savor the sweet ones. 
Because this journey that you’re on, mama?

It’s pretty extraordinary.

Stephanie has documented every milestone of our lives and we couldn't be more thrilled!

Did you know that your baby will have doubled in size by the time he is six months old?

Or, maybe you want to create a baby book of your sweet infant that documents each milestone, but putting it together yourself sounds like a daunting task.

Whatever your goals for the session, The First Year Collective is the perfect way to celebrate your baby's first year.

Watch your Baby Grow

You have a vision of a wall in your home that highlights how your family grows over time but no idea (or time!) to make it actually come to life.



Choose from a signature session either in studio or outdoors. Most maternity sessions take place around 32-36 weeks, and First Year Collective clients receive priority access to our limited outdoor dates avaliable.

Newborn sessions take place in our downtown Bentonville studio, where you're able to just show up in yoga pants and let us take care of everything. We typically photograph newborns between 5-14 days after birth.

6 Months

first birthday

This personality-filled session is often our favorite all year. At six months, your baby has hit peak chubbiness and is in the perfect "baby" stage. This will likely be your family's first family portrait with everyone smiling at the camera!

Your sweet little babe is now a toddler- he'll seem like a completely different baby than he was at his six month session! A studio cake smash is also included with your First Year Collective to document this sweet milestone. 

The First Year Collective is customizable and we regularly photograph other milestones as well. Get in touch and we'll create the perfect collective for you!

I was nervous taking photos with a newborn, but Stephanie made the whole experience quick and easy. My anxiety at our 6 month and 1 year photos was nonexistent because I had seen the magic Stephanie can work!

 I loved that she has wardrobe... that was huge in lowering my stress level and lessening the never-ending “to-do” list. Her makeup artist is fantastic too.

We have a beautiful album and also had Stephanie create a feature wall of photos for us that can continue to grow as we add to our family.

Truly cannot say enough positive things about our experience!
