The First Year - Connecticut Newborn and Family Photography

It's called many different things; A First Year Collective, Baby Plan, Collective Membership, etc. It is one of the most valuable and cherished offerings at Ashley Nielsen Studio. The Collective membership allows you to book a session for every milestone, maternity, newborn, 6 months, 1 year, sitting, standing, walking, we photograph each season of baby's first year.

You can choose between 3 or 4 sessions and pick the milestones you would like to document. At the end of your membership, you can put your favorite images into a custom heirloom album for your child to look at for years to come.

Memories Collected

All Collective members have the option to create an Heirloom Album at the end of their membership. One of the biggest perks we offer is members receive an album credit for each session. This handmaid, custom album is a true heirloom and will last for generations to come.

A Note From Ashley:

Hello and thank you so much for checking out my work!

I have a beautifully simple and bright studio in Westbrook Connecticut, but also travel to my clients’ homes or meet families on location to create beautiful artwork from their images. 

If you would like to see more of my work, please browse the Gallery of Work tab and make sure to mention your favorites.

As a mom of three boys, I know that these moments are fleeting. Photography is the only way to capture these moments in time and that’s my ultimate goal with my clients. The portraits of my children are priceless. 

If you would like more information about a session, please fill out the contact form on my website and I will personally email or text you back within two business days. My studio is a short drive for anyone living in Middlesex, New London, or New Haven Counties. I also travel throughout the state of Connecticut and Rhode Island.
