What is a Milestone Session?

Studio Milestone Sessions are perfect for babies that are too old for a newborn sleepy session, but too young for their party-filled cake smash session around their first birthday. Typical ages for milestone sessions include 3-months, 6-months sitter sessions, and 9-months. Including a session, every 3 months is the best way to capture all of your baby’s “firsts.” In year one, your baby grows and changes so much. They begin to smile, roll over, sit up, stand up, and walk. That is so many changes!! (Insert Mama tears here!) What could be more perfect than a studio session for each stage (newborn, 3-months, 6-months, 9-months, and first birthday cake smash) and then creating a FIRST YEAR photo album encompassing each session and baby’s “first?”

As a family photographer, BABY’S FIRST YEAR is my favorite way to capture and share your family memories for generations to come!! Plus I love seeing your children grow up in their first year. As a Mom of 2 (almost 3) children, I know how important it is to preserve memories of our children, and every so often I look back at my own children’s first-year images, hold back the tears as much as possible, and cherish the fact that I live in a time where photographs exist. I am so beyond thankful to be able to see my own children grow through photography. This is why I love creating images for your family. There is nothing more special than spending time with family, so why not photograph it as well?!
