capturing little

ages and stages

Your baby is growing and changing so fast. With quick photo shoots that capture all the little quirks of every stage, we’ll help you hold onto those moments in time.

North Minnesota Baby Photographer

they are only little for such a little while

Your baby is going to change so much within the first year of their life, and it happens so fast it almost seems like a blur! Our milestone sessions are engineered to give you the opportunity to capture them in all of their various stages.

Around this age, babies begin making beautiful eye contact. They’ll often coo and smile because they’re recognizing faces. They love to be talked to, and may even laugh a little! It’s a great time to tuck them into a little prop and take chubby faced smiling photos. 

Around this stage, babies start sitting without assistance, which means we don’t have to rely on anything to help prop them up. It’s a great age to capture baby, and since their first year is half over, it’s a stage you won’t want to miss. They still make great eye contact, and by now, they’re ready to laugh at all of our antics!

You better move fast to capture this stage! Once babies start crawling, it’s not much longer before they’re off and walking. Still, it’s a really cute age to capture. We have to be fast too, because now that baby is mobile, they’ve got a big world to explore and they’re not too keen to sit for long!

Now that baby’s walking, they’re ready to really explore their world. Now they’re ready to start sitting in big kid chairs. They’re so cute when they’re toddling all over. 

 

This is also a great time to incorporate a birthday smash cake to commemorate their first birthday. 

Your unique baby

and their unique needs

Because every baby is different, they may not hit their milestones at the same time. Some are born prematurely and due to health reasons, missed out on newborn photos. And still, others may have special needs that require special accommodations.

 

We want you to know that we are happy to photograph your baby at any age or stage, regardless of their needs. Though situations may vary, all of our clients can expect the same level of high quality and consistent results. 

 

Simply mention what your needs and requirements are when you contact us. We are ready to make sure you have beautiful artwork to cherish.

Little milestones

on location

When the weather is cooperative, your milestone session can take place outdoors. With so many beautiful locations in the Iron Range area, you’re guaranteed to have beautiful, and memorable art to display in your home.

You're in for

a smashing good time

Nothing tops off baby’s first year like a custom cake smash session. A mess-filled fun session is a great way to commemorate baby’s first birthday, and shows their personality.

First birthday celebration

Do you have a theme for your little one's first birthday? We can match decor to whatever it is you've got planned. Not sure what theme to run with? No worries! We're always up for getting creative and decorating.

We're full of ideas

Aside from creating hilarious memories, we recommend booking your cake smash session in advance and using the images for party invitations! These images also look great in a photo book, which we can custom design just for you.

What's included

All you need to do is bring us a happy baby, ready to smoosh some cake and get messy. We'll provide the decor, and the cake. These sessions do incur an additional fee, which we will discuss with you when you contact us.

She took the most gorgeous maternity and newborn pictures for me and I couldn’t be more in love with them. She’s fun and amazing to work with and makes you feel comfortable and at ease when doing your pictures, and she’s also fantastic when it comes to taking pictures of your babies and kiddos. I strongly suggest looking at her work and considering a session! You won’t have any regrets about it if you do have her take your pictures, but if you pass her up you’ll wish you hadn’t! 😆

Absolute best photographer you will find. My youngest is a HANDFUL! She worked with him, let him look through the camera and mess with it a little bit to where he got comfortable around her. Took time out to discuss what the kids liked and really kept them interested, while getting them to pose and get some of the most adorable pictures of my kids. Amazing with children. Sweetest soul you will find! And the picture quality? Well, it speaks for itself! If you’re needing pictures done I would 100% recommend Fairfeather Art. You will NOT be disappointed.

Needs more stars, five just doesn’t do it. We LOVE the photos She did of our baby and plan to book a family shoot very soon. She is an awesome person who is easy to work with, patient and VERY good at what she does. I personally have used "professional" photographers a few times and trust me she blows them all away. Plus she kept even my fussy baby feeling comfortable. I couldn’t be happier.

Not only is Mel extremely professional and talented, she is just overall welcoming and will go out of her way to make sure you get the pictures you want. Between kids, boudoir, maternity, and soon newborn pictures I can’t even imagine having anyone else take care of our pictures.

It's clear that Mel cares about her customers most. We were expecting a stuffy studio, but were pleasantly surprised when she told us she could bring her setup to us. It was more personal and so comfortable. Mel is a riot! We loved that her website and pricing was all very straightforward with zero surprises. Her work is superb. She went above and beyond to deliver and the results are easy to see every day on our walls!
