Milestone sessions capture all of the incredible "firsts" your child will achieve in their first year. If you talk to any mom, they will tell you that your baby will change so much month to month within that first year, and you will want to remember each and every stage.
Every milestone session consists of simple and timeless setups that will allow your baby to be the focus. We will work together to develop a color palette that will coordinate beautifully with your home decor, ensuring that these are ready to be displayed and enjoyed. You will have access to my extensive collection of handmade vintage-inspired outfits for both boys and girls, as well as accessories and props that have been hand selected for your session.
The most popular age ranges to book are 3-4 months, 6-9 months and 11-12 months. Here's what you can expect from those age ranges:
3-4 months: At this age, your baby's personality will really be coming out so that is what we will focus on! Unlike at a newborn session, we will get lots of smiles and laughs, and you will start to see glimpses of who they are going to become. Some babies at this age are able to push up for "tummy time" and some are even able to be sat up in a crate, but neither is necessary.
6-9 months: This is, hands down, the BEST age to get pictures taken. Ideally, we will schedule your session when your child is able to sit on their own but is not yet crawling. At this age you will get lots of personality, and the largest variety of poses and outfits. This age tends to be much more cooperative and easy going than one year olds, in terms of 'going with the flow'.
11-12 months: The birthday session is our most popular milestone session. Making it to the one year mark is a huge accomplishment for your entire family and deserves to be celebrated! Birthday sessions typically include one traditional portrait setup, a cake smash, and a bath. Cake smash setups are simple but fun, allowing us to focus on your baby enjoying their cake! Setups can be planned to coordinate with a birthday party, nursery theme, or anything else your baby loves.
