Your Babies First Year Creatively Captured

Dear new parents,

Congratulations on your new addition to your family. Your baby will grow so fast and its first year will be THE most important year. Why not capture that time forever, before it is too late.

The baby’s first year wall panel from David Thielen Photographic Artistry is the ideal keepsake.

Your baby’s first year is the most important. It is the fastest growth period in your baby’s life. We will photograph your baby at newborn, 4, 8, and 12 months or alternately ages 3, 6, 9 and 12 months….

…..then we will present you with a stunning folio with your favorite pose and expression of your baby’s first year. You will love this, we guarantee it!

Now is the only time you can do this. Once your baby is older it is too late.

What Is the Baby Steps First Year Program?

The Baby Steps First Year program consists of FOUR high quality, creative portrait sessions of your baby. These are not your typical portrait sessions.

The first thing you will notice is we are not a high-volume studio where you wait in line only to be rushed through a “fast-food”, cafeteria-style session, only to be disappointed in the end.

Our photography stands above the crowd for creativity and style.


The difference is obvious.

You will be amazed at the variety and quality of poses you get to choose from. Our goal is to capture your baby using the most creative, cutest, sweetest and most endearing poses possible. Many of our clients tell us that when friends come over and see their photos of their baby, they often say they thought they were from a magazine or calendar.

All your photographs are available in colour, black and white or old-style sepia. We use only the softest, most flattering light to enhance and bring out your baby’s features. Would you want it any other way?

It All Starts With Baby’s First Session

Newborn babies like to sleep and cuddle. They are little angels and make some of the nicest photographs because of these qualities. A little patience, timing and creative posing will allow us to capture these moments with poses similar to the ones you see in magazines and coffee table books.

You can even tell us your ideas; we’d love to hear them. Many parents are tired when they come in with their newborn baby, but are so happy once the first year is over to have these priceless memories.

Your baby’s first session will convince you that you made the right choice for your baby’s photography. Dave’s easy going and creative style combined with the ultimate test, the images that you will get to see, and take home, minutes after your first session, will prove this to you.

When your baby gets a little older you will start to see BIG CHANGES. Between the ages of three months and eight, your baby will start smiling and sitting up, not to mention the expressions and those chubby little baby parts. It’s a great age for expressions, props such as our antique basin, antique boxes, flowers, metal wash basin, garden wall and many more, including old fashioned nudies.

Hundreds Of Happy And Satisfied Client

Over the years many parents have been though our doors. They tell us the baby’s first year portrait panel is one of the nicest memories they have hanging on the walls in their children’s bedroom or family room. We get a load of comments and feedback. Here’s one of many, from Gilles and Seline Lemieux….

“Dear Dave, We really wanted to personally thank you for the fantastic job you did on our daughters ‘photographs. You’ve given us memories that will truly last a lifetime. We left your studio with such a warm feeling. We felt genuinely proud of our little girl! You brought out her true beauty and we’ve been able to share these long lasting memories with our entire family as well.

Already we are eagerly looking forward to our next session. I went to a baby shower today and could not have bragged about you more. I showed off my proofs from Saturday and told them all how incredible a photographer you are. If only I had pamphlets to give everyone. I did mention your website though. In ending, we would simply like to say thank you and see you at nine months.

All the best, Gilles, Seline & Gabrielle Lemieux”
