Nashville First Year Photographer | The Collective Membership

Hiring the same Nashville first year photographer for multiple sessions throughout your baby’s first year is so beautiful and has some major perks for new parents. Here are five reasons I created my signature Collective Membership for clients to have multiple sessions for their family or baby as they grow:

  1. Consistency in Style and Quality: Each photographer has their unique style, which encompasses their editing style, angles and lenses used to photograph your session, lighting usage, and overall color palates. By hiring the same photographer for all of those sessions, you can ensure a consistent style. This makes for a beautiful and cohesive heirloom album or gallery wall of all of your sessions that tells a seamless story of the baby’s journey from your maternity session to your baby’s first birthday.
  2. Building Trust and Comfort: Having photo sessions when you’re pregnant or just had a baby is an intimate process. Over multiple sessions, your photographer and the family develop an understanding with each other. This trust ensures that you and, most importantly, your baby are comfortable and relaxed during your sessions. The more at ease everyone is, the more authentic and natural your images will be. Additionally, your photographer will also have a better understanding of the family’s preferences and expectations.
  3. Chronological Documentation: Using the same photographer will allow them to plan subsequent sessions with a chronological narrative in mind, highlighting your baby’s growth and changes over the year. The transition from maternity to newborn to one year will be artistically represented with a unique perspective that may not be possible if different photographers handle each session.
  4. Cost and Collection Benefits: Often, photographers offer exclusive pricing for clients who reserve multiple sessions. Additionally, having your sessions planned out and paid for in advance ensures you don’t miss out on documenting any crucial milestones, you might forget about if you go one by one or to a variety of different studios.
  5. Ease of Coordination: Scheduling multiple sessions with different photographers can become an administrative challenge. You will need to coordinate schedules, discuss styles and preferences, and manage payments with various photographers and the systems they use. Sticking to one photographer streamlines this process, making it easier to plan and manage appointments, so you can be more relaxed and have that come through in your images. Plus, any feedback or specific requirements can be consistently applied across sessions without having to repeat them to a new photographer each time.
