Milestone Session Experience
That first year of your child's life is ever-changing! The growth stages of babies are seriously astounding to me. We go from a wee little sleepy bundle to rolling, then crawling and sitting, and then all of a sudden bam, they are walking! All in one year's time. That's a lot of change! This is where Milestone sessions become super important and are some of my favorite sessions to do.
I love getting to be a part of watching your baby grow.
We plan these sessions anytime around 3, 6, 9 months, and 1 year. You can choose to do one every 3 months or have one or two between their newborn and first year. I love making albums with a compilation of images from a baby's first year. Such an amazing heirloom to have.
Milestone sessions tend to be just for your little one. We focus on their adorable little features and the stage that they are in at that time. Family is welcome to join however we will be focusing mostly on your little one.
In-home, outdoors, or in the studio are all great options.
When outside we like to plan those for in the morning or late afternoon. Lighting is best within a few hours of sunrise and sunset. In the summertime, I usually suggest doing outdoor sessions with little ones in the morning. It's a bit cooler, kids tend to be happier in the morning and the sunset is usually very late by this time making little ones tired by the time we are able to start a session in the afternoon.
The studio is available to use year-round and makes a great option for doing sessions during the day when the sun is at its highest point. The studio is set up in a lovely lifestyle setting.
When to book
With how fast your little one will be growing, I recommend getting these sessions set on the calendar right away. We can book up to a year in advance.
Oh, the adorable outfits they have for children these days! I still recommend sticking with neutrals and light earth tones. I also have some items you are welcome to borrow for their session.
I have used Katie twice and both times exceeded my expectations! I have my baby’s gorgeous 6-month-old pictures and now precious 1-year photos! Moments captured in ways that fly by on our normal day-to-day routines.
