WHO IS THIS SESSION FOR?
Baby and child photography, also called milestone sessions are perfect for each new chapter of your babies life. From learning to sit, crawl, turning one and beyond, milestone sessions capture it all.
After the first year, a photo session around each birthday is a terrific idea. Year after year, you’ll be able to reminisce about how much they’ve changed and recall special moments and milestones that each age brings.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE SESSION?
During the session you can expect us to be moving at a face pace. Wrangling babies is a skill that I am very good at but I also know they only have about a 20 minute attention span depending on their age. In order to achieve multiple set-ups and poses for your session I will be moving fairly quickly.
If you child is older, your can expect a very interactive experience. From tea parties to pretending to fly airplanes, your child’s imagination will be the focus of the session. All ideas will be planned before hand but kids truly look forward to their annual “Birthday” photo sessions.
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK?
Milestone sessions can be booked any time.
I love photographing babies at 4 months, 8 months, 12 months, and 18 months then yearly after that.
During the first few years little ones are growing and changing so much. After that, they slow down on hitting milestones and then we get a chance to capture their true personalities.
These are the sessions I highly recommend to my clients but you are always welcome to do more or less.
WHERE DOES THE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Session location depends on the age of your child.
Babies and toddles under 2 are typically photographed in the studio. This ensures we can control the environment and make the session as pleasant as possible.
Toddlers and kids may be photographed in the studio or outdoors depending on the overall theme of their session.
Time of year also dictates where sessions take place. Most kids have a hard time taking outdoor pictures during the winter.
WHY CHOOSE MILESTONE PHOTOGRAPHY?
Because babies don’t keep.
Before you know it, your little one will be a toddler and huge milestones such as sitting, crawling and walking will quickly be forgotten.
Once your baby becomes a child their interest and activities change rapidly. Their imagination begins to grow and their sweet personalities truly shine. Milestone sessions are perfect for capturing this magical time in your little one’s life.
HOW LONG DOES THE SESSION TAKE?
A baby milestone session takes about 20-30 minuets. Because kids have such a short attention span, I move super fast to get you in and out before a meltdown happens and ruins the experience.
If you choose to add-on a cake smash the session will be a little longer. Most kids are okay with the added time because they get to make a mess and eat cake.
For kids, the sessions takes about 30-45 minutes. Kids get so involved playing with all the props that it takes a little longer to move from one set-up to the next.
