STUDIO Sessions

Hazel's Session | 6m

VLP has a home children’s studio based in Chilton, WI for newborns to age 10. There are countless props always being updated, over 90 backdrops, and top-of-the-line lighting equipment. (She may or may not have a slight addiction on antique shopping from vendors all over the world.)

  • Sessions are done all year
  • Babies 4 months to one year are photographed in the studio
  • All sessions before 5:30 are done in the studio
"What if I fall. Oh, but darling, what if you can fly?" -Erin Hansen & Pooh
Expressions from a three year old!


  • Mid-May through Mid-Oct
  • Must be photographed after 5:30 pm for golden hour lighting
  • Ages 18 months and up are done outdoors during these months
  • Locations are around Chilton and chosen based on weather and outfit styles/colors
We got SO lucky on this STUNNING sunset that brought out the deep yellows and oranges. Another reason natural lighting is so good!

Baby's First Year

Sessions for your baby's first year are all done in the comfort of the studio to keep baby safe and have full access to props and accessories.

Sitter and Standing Sessions

These are recommended for milestone portraits. Sitter sessions are when baby is sitting up--typically by 7 months. Standing sessions are for one year milestones.

Meet Harper.

These are just a handful of images from each of Harper's sessions from her first year of sessions!


VLP is now offering smash and splash sessions on their very own or you can add it to a session! Either way, the session price now includes the cake, outfit, and decor. Yout just bring your baby!

Cake Smash

You've survived the first year of late-night feedings and early-morning rises. First smiles, sitting up, crawling, standing up, and maybe even walking! This session shows so much more personality!

Option 1: Cake Smash Add-on... This is a regular session + the cake smash. The session includes two outfits for the regular session (you provide attire or you can use anything from VLP's client wardrobe), setup, cake smash outfit (unless the client would rather provide their own), professional cake, balloon garland/backdrop decor, and clean-up.

To book this, choose the first button link (at the very end) Milestone Session and choose the Smash and Splash Add-on.

Option 2: Smash and Splash Only.... Some don't want a full session with all the outfit changes. No problem! This session focuses on the cake and bath. It also includes pictures without the cake to capture some personality pictures, the smash itself, and the bath splash! VLP starts with getting some shots before the cake comes in and we end with a bath splash!

If you only want this, then just click the Smash and Splash button link at the very bottom.

Lindsey made this little tent and floral backdrop for Gracelynn's cake smash. Simple, but pretty. She is also wearing a floral romper and headpiece from VLP.

  • Clients choose their color theme
  • Theme can be specific colors or character themed.
  • Client needs to inform VLP no later than 2 weeks before the session to be able to order cake and time to design and create backdrop.
  • Clients can give VLP the freedom to surprise clients!
Some clients choose their theme based on what they are doing for the first birthday party.

Retainer Fee: A non-refundable retainer will be required to book your session. If the weather is a cause for cancellation, then you will receive a credit towards your next booking. If baby is sick, your retainer fee will be credited to your new rescheduled session. You can reschedule your session as long as it is done within 2 weeks prior to allow you credit for the retainer fee (again, unless the baby or parent is ill).

Warmer Season: ALL child sessions are indoors BEFORE 5:30 pm. After 5:30pm, sessions are outdoors for best lighting.

Colder Seasons: Indoors only (but Lindsey would love to accommodate a snow day for part of a session if the temps are safe for your child!)

Ready to Book!? Great! Here you go!
