Heights + Memorial Baby Photographers

| Baby photography is an art that we have mastered over many years at Evin Thayer Studios. Let us capture all the personality and charm of your sweet baby. Our modern studio with tons of cute setups is the perfect place to bring your baby for photos celebrating the milestones of the first year. Once you’ve had the newborn session, you’ll want to come back again and again! We love to photograph sitting babies, around the age of six to eight months. It’s typically a happy age for babies, and a great time to capture big smiles. First birthday sessions are the best at Evin Thayer Studios! We do traditional first year portraits first, then a cake smash, then it’s time to clean up and let baby splash in an antique washtub for adorable bath time photos. Cake smashes are so much fun! We provide a bakery cake and themed setup, then let baby have at the cake while we capture all the action. Ask us about baby plans so you can have beautiful professional photography throughout your baby’s first year!
