What is a milestone session? Simply a session to capture those month milestones within the first year of birth. Your little one changes and grows so fast, these are great ways to capture those moments. These can be booked on a per session basis or get a discount by purchasing a grow with me package of your choice. Already had your newborn session? We can still get you into a grow with me package, just contact me and we can discuss!
The most popular months for milestones:
3-4 months old which is when they have changed so much from a tiny newborn yet are so much more aware of surrounding. They usually get their arms going crazy and show off those big smiles. Enjoying tummy time and holding their head up, etc. No matter what milestones they have passed, this is a fun age for photos!
6 months old, I bet it doesn’t feel like your little one should be 6 months old already! This is another great month for photos, of course, they grow and change quick but your little one is usually more responsive to people interacting with them. How adorable is a smiling baby grabbing their little toes? Getting those hands and feet going ready to take off is adorable and makes for a fun session. This is a good age to get those really strong belly shots! Of course, we can incorporate fun chairs with sides and buckets for them to “be big” and sit in for a nice mix up of photos!
8-9 months old is my favorite milestone session time! At this point, the baby is usually sitting up really well and much more interactive and we all end up laughing at the entertainment. This would likely be one of the first sessions that your little one looks so much bigger as they think they can do anything!
12 month – One year sessions! I actually make one-year sessions its own page on the site as they are so much fun letting little ones smash into some cake (or other foods) and have a more themed session that fits their birthday and celebrate such a big milestone!
