The5 must have luxury baby items
Your perfect must have baby splurge items for your registry!

As a Ballantyne NC photographer, I love offering my clients a full luxury experience designed for the busy mama who wants timeless images and artwork in their home. This experience includes wardrobe, hair and makeup, artwork design services, and a planning appointment. The entire experience is designed to take the tasks of planning a session off your plate. This will allow you to enjoy the moments with your growing babies  while we create artwork to last your lifetime.

The planning appointment is one of my favorite parts of the process. This appointment is about taking your vision for your session and making it come to life. We will discuss your wardrobe, the artwork you are interested in, and the location where you would like to have your session! During our time together, I will help ensure you get the session of your dreams by helping you with these details. To help you make decisions that reflect what is most important to you for the location of your session. I have put together a list of the location options available.

Location options with NC photographer Katie Petrick Photography

  1. In-Home Lifestyle Session – These are most popular among families who are welcoming a newborn into their family. Having a session in your home allows you to truly document the season of life you are in right now. If you are having a newborn session, we can capture some sweet moments and details of the nursery. If it is not a newborn session, we can capture your everyday moments in a way that you might not even realize are happening when you are living them. Making these images truly a treasure to last a lifetime. View an in-home lifestyle session here.
  2. Studio Session- A studio session is a great option if you want a simplified session. The studio setup is a white wall with white flooring and lots of natural light, allowing you to create images with no distractions. This is great because you will receive images that will never go out of style. They will look amazing on your walls, no matter the decor in your home. A studio also is a great option for the winter months or working around the crazy schedules of our littles. There is a bit more flexibility regarding the time of day we have our session.

  3. Outdoor Session at Sunset or Sunrise – There is nothing more beautiful than the soft setting sun or the early morning light.  I have had many sessions for newborns, maternity, or family outdoors during the fall, spring, and summer months. There are several fields around Charlotte, NC, that we will discuss during your planning appointment. You will receive soft, muted earth tones that complement your selected wardrobe. These great playful sessions that allow you to slow down and enjoy some time outside with your family! View an outdoor session here.

In the end, your decision on where to have your sessions will depend on several factors. But no matter where you decide to go, you are creating memories for your family while you enjoy cuddles, playing with your kids, and loving on them while creating beautiful moments that will turn into lifelong memories in your home.
