The Milestones: Family and Children’s Photography by Jamie Lucido

The Milestones: Family and Children’s Photography | Charlotte Photographer Jamie Lucido

Many families find me when a major event is happening in their lives- they just got engaged, they’re looking for a wedding photographer, they’re having a baby, or there’s a special event they want to celebrate.   When they love their photo experience, and their images, they want to do it again.  I love it when families ask to join my Milestone Club, or when families are given a gift certificate from grandparents, godparents, and friends, and want to make the most of a year of photography.

How it works when kids are involved: we set up regular intervals during the year (for example for a baby: a Fresh 48, 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and 1-year), or for older children (birthdays, family trips, graduations, special hobby events).  So many adorable changes during a year of childhood, its a really great way to document the changes, have consistently beautiful images (perfect for an album at the end of our year!), and its more cost-effective than setting up individual sessions.

My Milestone packages can be started and ended at any time during a year, and can include any number of sessions (twice a year: Spring and Fall is popular!, four times a year for a new baby, special times during the year for older children), whatever works best for  your family.  The fact that we get to meet up multiple times and plan fun sessions (they can be themed, documentary, as posed or playful as you like), builds a lot of trust and makes kids and adults more comfortable in front of the camera.

If you’re looking for an easy and enjoyable way to create images with your family throughout the year, ask me about joining my Milestone Club!

Sharing a few favorites from a year of milestone images with the Carrero family, today!  This special family contacted me last year, when their sweet baby boy was born.  Our first session was a ‘welcome home’, little Carter was only 4 days old, his 3-month, 6-month, 9-month, and 1 year cake smash session were all a ton of fun.   We had the opportunity to enjoy a variety of lifestyle and themed session during our year, both at their home and at favorite outdoor spots.  It was a beautiful privilege to document these moments with you all, and I love seeing the year all together- Happy Birthday, Carter!
