Storybook Collective | Babies First Year | Newport Beach Studio



As parents, we all want to remember every precious moment of our baby’s first year. From their first cry to their first steps, these moments are fleeting, and we want to hold onto them forever. That’s why we’re excited to reintroduce The Storybook Collective, our featured service that documents your baby bump to its first Birthday by Halleigh Hill, Newport Beach Newborn Photographer.

The Storybook Collective is the ultimate way to build a beautiful baby book that tells the story of your baby’s first year. We offer 3 or 4 sessions, each highlighting the rapid changes your baby makes in their first year of life. These sessions are tailored to capture the most important milestones of your baby’s development, including the bump, newborn, sitting up, and first Birthday.

Our team at our Newport Beach Photography Studio will work with you to create a personalized experience that captures the unique personality of your baby. From wardrobe styling to our in-house beauty team. Our year together will be the best investment you will make.

Brenna chose to start her collective membership of four sessions with her maternity session. For each Signature Session, we invite the whole family to attend. Images mean so much more when they feature the people we love the most.

A Maternity session sometimes marks the first chapter into the unknown of parenthood and at the same time is the final chapter of what your family was like before a new little brother or sister’s arrival. It’s a session filled with the excitement of waiting for your baby to arrive. Your Maternity session can take place at our Newport Beach Studio or an Orange County Location of your choice.

Shortly after your maternity session, we invite you back to the studio in your baby’s first 20 days of life for the “Newborn Session,” these first few weeks of the baby’s life while they are sleepy and curly. This is the perfect time to capture those adorable newborn poses and the special bond between you and your baby.

Before you can blink, the next milestone has come. When the baby has mastered “Sitting Up” around 6-8 months, we invite the whole family back into the studio to document the occasion. This session is a great way to capture the baby’s personality and newfound mobility.

The last session of the collective is celebrating your baby’s First Birthday, which is done around 11-13 months; this is a celebration of all the changes and their first birthday celebration. Many clients opt to smash a cake or have a family session as the final chapter of their Storybook.

The Storybook Collective is more than just a milestone photography service; it’s an heirloom waiting to be made that you and your baby will treasure for a lifetime. Our team will work with you to create a beautiful and meaningful handcrafted baby book that tells the story of your baby’s first year.

Each birth year takes a limited amount of Collective members that enjoy perks such as priority booking, weekend availability, reduced session fees, and artwork credit toward their First Year Storybook Album.
