the Baby plan


We are thrilled you are considering adding your expanding family to ours!  We would be honoured to document your little one’s very first portraits and all the special milestones of their one and only first year; these are the images that will be treasured for years to come and will beautifully chronicle your family’s history.

Building lasting relationships with families is at the core of what we do at Trish Mennell Photography.  By photographing your special moments again and again, we get to know you, your preferences and your traditions.  We understand the artwork you are collecting for your family and provide a quality that is unparalleled.  A lasting relationship also allows Trish to make the special kind of images our studio is known for - images that capture who your family is, in the perfect combination of your own personal style with our photographic style.  There is nothing quite like a child who is excited for family photos because they have a personal relationship with your family's photographer.  

Trish Mennell Photography is committed to providing not only remarkable images but also a remarkable, full service experience.  The little touches and special details are important to us.  We allow you to concentrate on your new addition and know that you will receive an experience unlike any other in the industry. 

This page should provide you with a full overview of what you can expect from the Baby Plan however we are always available to answer your questions. We look forward to working with you!


About The Baby Plan

The Baby Plan captures your favourite stages of your baby’s first year: newborn, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year. Combined, these four sessions let you look back at a year that has flown by and keep the fleeting moments forever.  Each stage of a new child’s life is a perfect time to commemorate your family with an amazing gift to be cherished forever—and Trish Mennell Photography helps make the process fun and flawless. 

In addition to our celebrated custom client experience, we offer a variety of products that offer more to less depending on your needs.  Albums begin at $1375, gift prints at $159, all wall art is custom made to suit your home. We also offer opportunities to purchase digital files (although we much prefer that you allow us to create your artwork beautifully for you).

All baby plan members are invited to enrol in our gift registry so that family and friends can contribute to your dream artwork!  We will discuss the keepsakes you would like to collect and provide you with a digital registry card to share with family and friends.  They can contact us directly and we will send you a note announcing their gift. Best gift ever!

Because this magical stage of life passes in the blink of an eye, newborn portraits are captured during the first weeks of life while your little one is well-fed, sleepy and content. We will keep your due date on file and stay in touch with you as the exciting day approaches, making adjustments to fit you in at just the perfect time. Newborns are captured usually in simple onesies, swaddled in your favourite blanket, or in their baby birthday suit (your choice). We will also take images with up to four siblings and parents. 

We recommend scheduling this session for the first 2-4 weeks of baby’s life. 

3 Months

Smiles, expressions, tummy time and of course, the baby chub, are big changes that have taken place by the time your little one is at three months. We love a baby who has discovered their toes!  Simple styling, natural light and lots of coos and giggles make this a stage you don’t want to forget.  

6 Months

When baby is ready for sitting but not yet on the go, we will capture him/her at the roly-poly happy phase, when those big grins and belly laughs are lighting up your life. Sitting babies make the absolute best models, since they cannot crawl away and are easily amused with peek-a-boo and squeaky toys. Portraits at this stage capture the beginnings of those dynamic personalities that will be with you forever, and give a glimpse into a small person interacting with their environment as only those small bundles of delight can. 

We recommend scheduling this session for the 6-7 month mark - when baby sitting up without assistance.

One Year

With a penchant for partying and hands ready to dive into that birthday cake, the first birthday is a greatly anticipated milestone in every family. At this age, your toddler will be interacting in lots of fun ways which sometimes leave even parents in need of a nap. Standing, walking and ready to take on the world, we document that infectious energy and charisa that brings so much light (and sometimes surprise) into your life. We will focus on capturing these moments and expressions and can also incorporate siblings, Mom and Dad - and pets make great snugglers, too!

Together, we’ll ensure they never forget how much they are loved.
