I recently had the pleasure of having Katie from K. Gardner Photography capture my twins’ 1st birthday. This was a huge milestone for us and we were thrilled to have Katie take these special photos! It wasn’t the first time we have worked with Katie – a year ago when my tiny babies were born, she came to our room in the NICU (as part of The Tiny Footprints Project) and took photos of my babies in a ‘lifestyle’ photo session. It is amazing to have these memories to hang on to forever! She is an absolute dream to work with… talented, creative, friendly and makes things stress-free!
My kids are not the most cooperative (as most 1 and 2 year olds probably are not!) so sometimes photo sessions tend to stress me out. Katie alleviates that stress. She comes up with fun, creative ideas and (since she has young children of her own) she knows how to follow cues from the little ones to make sure she gets some amazing images! At the one year session for my twins she even had a bag full of balloons that she pulled out and she took pictures of them playing joyfully with the balloons. Not only did it make for adorable images but it made them SO happy and we got lots of big smiles from it!
Katie is offering Milestone Mini sessions for one for $115. It is a 20 minute session to celebrate any milestone or moment in a child’s life. It includes 5 edited digital images with print release. You can turn it into a cake smash for an extra $35 and it includes the cake! Cake smashes aren’t just for one year olds anymore, anyone under 5 is welcome! Any milestone mini or cake smash booked by the end of June 2015 gets a free 8×10! It doesn’t have to be completed by June, just booked.
Katie is an absolute dream to work with! I left the session knowing that I would have a hard time deciding which photos were my favorites. She got me the gallery in a timely manner and I’m pretty sure that my heart (literally) melted when I scrolled through the pictures. I would recommend her to anyone looking to get photos of their children that they plan to treasure forever!
