Baby's First Year



Did you miss out on the recommended newborn age frame or just want updated portraits of your baby at the next milestone? Milestone Sessions are great for babies ages 3-12 months. This is such a beautiful age to photograph. This is when they start to smile, have great eye contact, find their toes, and master tummy time. I do recommend the session happens once your baby has enough strength to lay on their tummy while holding their head up. Baby should be comfortable to hold their head up while on their tummy for around 5 minutes at a time. This gives another pose variety to your session instead of doing most of the session with baby on their back. All babies reached this milestone at different times, but I found it best once they are 3.5-4 months old. If your baby takes a little longer, that’s okay, we can wait until they do.


Sitter sessions are perfect for parents wanting to capture their baby half birthday milestones but are open to babies of any age as long as they are SITTING UP on their own (7 months is highly recommended) all the way up to 1 year. Most babies start to sit when they are 6.5 months old, but some little ones take a little longer, so if you are booking months in advance, we suggest booking this session closer when your baby is closer to 7 months old to avoid canceling your session if they are not sitting unassisted. If you are completely set on half birthday milestones at 6 months and your baby is not sitting yet, I do have props, beds, and crates to help them sit and hold on to.


Your session will be completely styled and includes access to our baby wardrobe that is full of custom made outfits designed specifically for professional photography. We also have props and photo friendly toys for your little ones to play with that fits my classic style. All sitter sessions are shot on a grey or cream backdrop or at a local field. With your little one dressed in my clothing, you will receive timeless and classic portraits that will be loved over for decades! Creative fee is due upon booking.
