All You Need to Know About Baby Milestone Sessions

Without sounding like a broken record, the first year of your baby’s life goes by way too quickly. So many parents that grace my studio can’t believe where the time has gone. Baby Milestone Sessions are a great way to freeze this time. We will document their toothless smile, the joy radiating from their eyes, and all the tiniest features. Capturing your little one’s personality and growth with a studio milestone session, without a doubt, is something you won’t regret.

What Is a Baby Milestone Session?

Typically, parents schedule Baby Milestone sessions at 3 months, 6 months (when the baby can sit unassisted), and 12 months. From tiny newborns to curious explorers, milestone sessions are a visual narrative of your baby’s growth and personality. They offer a unique opportunity to document and celebrate these key stages.  

Their Sweet, Little Personality

Milestone sessions go beyond the portrait; they highlight the genuine expressions, quirks, and little (or big) personalities of your baby. These images become timeless reflections of the joy and individuality your baby brings into your life.

Memories Frozen in Time

As parents, we often find ourselves wishing we could freeze time, holding onto the fleeting moments. We capture every gurgle, every achieved milestone, and every fleeting smile in a timeless gallery.


The boutique-styled studio provides a selection of outfits and bonnets from a carefully curated client closet. I style and handpick these options to match the chosen color palette for each session, ensuring a cohesive result. I encourage parents to bring a special outfit or item that holds sentimental value for the session.

Stress-Free Experience in a Boutique Studio:

All wardrobe and props are provided, eliminating the need for you to bring everything including the kitchen sink! Simply bring your diaper bag and I’ll handle the rest. We schedule sessions around your baby’s happy time, making the experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible.

Let’s Update That Family Photo

Before diving into your baby’s portraits, parents are given the opportunity to update the family photo. Capture the love and connection that defines your family unit, creating a timeless portrait to cherish for years to come.

When I had my kids I took them to a department store portrait studio every 3 months to capture their growth. I look back on those photos now not loving that department store portrait studio vibe but I don’t regret documenting them at these milestone ages. Baby Milestone sessions are a celebration of your little one’s growth and journey through their first year. With a focus on documenting development, capturing personality, and preserving memories, these sessions offer a unique way to cherish the precious moments of early parenthood.
