Baby Milestone photos are just as important as the Newborn and 1 year photoshoots. Don’t miss the opportunity to document the growth of your baby before they become a toddler on the move.
Most people usually reach out to book their Maternity, Newborn and 1st year birthday photos but time flies by so fast that they overlook the milestone photoshoot. Baby’s change so much in those 1st 12 months so you want to document them professionally along the way.
The milestone session is important to document because it captures your baby’s development before they become a toddler on the move. If you can only do one session then the sweet spot age for a milestone session is around 6-7 months old (before they become too active). If you can do more then 3/4 months, 6/7 months and 9/10 months is perfect to document their development at each stage. I try to achieve a variety of poses that documents everything they are learning to do like sitting up, grabbing their toes, on their belly trying to crawl and possibly standing up while holding onto something. I also like to capture all of their facial expressions like them sucking their fingers, smiling big, giving a serious face or a sweet smirk. This age is perfect to capture all of their sweet faces they gave as they were learning to explore the world around them, before they start having stranger anxiety and shyness (which comes closer to the 1 year mark).
Below are a few milestone sessions that showcase baby at each milestone age.
It is best to reach out to your photographer 1-2 months in advance to start planning your baby’s milestone session or to plan the entire year in advance to get a discount and lock in those current prices before they go up. Many photographers get booked up quickly (and weekends book even faster) so you don’t want to miss the opportunity to document these sweet growth moments. I personally offer a full client closet for my milestone sessions with a curated selection of simplistic rompers, overalls, dresses and more that match the style and props I utilize so nothing is needed except a happy, rested and fed baby.
This is also a great moment to capture some updated portraits of Mom & Baby or Dad & Baby too so I like to start off with those poses first to warm baby up before we put the focus on them alone.
