What is the Baby’s First Year package?

The Baby’s First Year package that I offer makes it really easy to book all those milestone sessions in one go so that when baby brain hits (which is a very real thing, I assure you)! you don’t need to think about booking that next session. Not only does it make booking simple, you also save a lot of money!

By booking your Baby’s First Year photography package with Mama Bear Photography you are not just paying in advance for photography sessions, you are accepting an invitation into an exclusive warm and welcoming baby club. You will receive reduced pricing on sessions, digital images and products, special offers and rewards, you can include additional sessions such as maternity or child sessions with a discount, sign up for limited availability mini sessions before anyone else and you will be invited to all Mama Bear meet-ups to spend time with other Mums with babies of similar ages.

Why choose me?

I explain why you should choose me as your newborn photographer in Lincoln on my newborn photography page, so please do have a read of this too! 

Your baby’s first year is going to go by faster than any other in their entire life. You may not think it at the time, after all ‘they’ do say ‘the days are long, but the years are short’ but once your little one start hitting all those precious milestones – holding their head up, smiling, rolling, sitting up, weaning, cutting teeth, laughing, crawling, babbling, walking you will wonder where on earth the time went!

Let me help slow it all down for you. I want to capture every milestone for you and your child, so at the end of that precious first year you can look back on a treasure trove of happy memories and know that you can keep them safe to look back on whenever you want – and to even enjoy looking at together one day.

When to book

I recommend booking your Baby’s First Year package when you have had your 20 week scan so we can pencil in session dates based on your due date. Then, just let me know when your little bundle arrives and we can confirm your session, ideally within the first 10 days of baby’s life. If you are already past this date, or your baby has already arrived, please get in touch as hopefully we can schedule a suitable date for you.

Showcasing your baby's first year

I love it when clients display their images on their walls, put them in albums and print them so I am keen to recommend a few of my favourite products that really lend themselves to capturing your baby’s first year.


A5 Album & USB set

Something that I value from my days as a wedding photographer in Lincoln is a beautiful album and my album and USB set is perfect for displaying your absolute favourite images from each of your sessions during that first year accompanied by a personalised USB to keep every image from your session safe (and in a place you remember where you put it)!


Wooden keepsake box for prints

This wooden engraved print box, is a stunning place to hold luxury prints from each session to share with friends and family.  It can hold up to 70 6x4” prints so if you purchase this at the beginning of the year with your favourite newborn images, as you add to it after each session it becomes a time capsule of that first year. Not only is it a gorgeous print box, if you ever find yourself with an empty box after giving images away to friends and family, adding to frames etc it is a stunning heirloom keepsake box for trinkets for your little one.


9 image floating block

My most popular product is this gorgeous 9 image floating block, which looks incredible showcasing images from just one session but could be purchased at the end of the year to showcase 3 images from each of your 3 sessions to have a stunning reminder on show of that special baby’s first year.
