About C.S. Photography, Inc.

C.S. Photography features the unique Home.Life.Art family sessions and Bébe Firsts sessions. What is Life Art? Well...Life Art is YOU! It is the relationship that is captured between family. A moment... a portrait created by me and turned into beautiful Life Art décor that makes you smile every time you walk by it and inspires your home to greet you.

My blog is filled with the inner workings of my photography passion. I will be featuring sneak peeks, tutorial tidbits, Life Art Décor suggestions, product offerings, client gallery designs and inspiration.

Bebe Firsts Baby Plan

Sessions are done at the newborn (under 10 days), 4 months, 8 months, and 1 year stages. Before delivery, we will meet either at your home or in my office for an initial consultation. Although a variety of products are available at all stages, each session has a corresponding product recommendation that you will be introduced to at your consultation. Our goal at the end of the Bébe Firsts year is to have complimentary portraits and products that decorate your home or nursery without consuming the décor in only first year images, leaving options available for growth and family additions…


Session is planned around your due date. I want to know when you are headed to the hospital, when you deliver, and when you are expected to come home. We can schedule your session the day you come home from the hospital so we are sure to include the hospital bands in a few of your baby’s first portrait’s before you remove them. Newborn sessions can also be scheduled up to 10 days after delivery.

{FOUR Months}

The next time I will see you and your bundle is around 4 months. Here we will capture the many expressions your little one has begun making.

{EIGHT Months}

By the 8th month your baby will be sitting on his own or may even be crawling. I’ll capture these milestones as well as his natural curiosity.


She may be walking or pulling herself up, but either way your little person is constantly on the go! At this session I’ll work to capture that budding personality and celebrate her one year milestone. The One Year session is usually done outdoors in a location that we decide upon based on the portrait goals discussed.
