How to Prepare for Baby Milestone Photo Sessions

Three/Four Month Session:

Tummy time! At about 3-4 months of age most babies are able to push up on their arms and hold their heads up steadily, perfect for eye contact with the camera.

Please arrive with baby fed and ready to smile! 🙂 Please bring an outfit or two of your own. I advice neutral light colors like beige, light grey, white with no logos, stripes etc. Please note that it is pretty common to not get a ton of smiles at this age, we’re capturing how much they’ve already changed in such a short time and we’ll definitely do our best to capture a few smiles! Babies are also sometimes great…and sometimes not so great at holding their heads up, so we’ll do a lot of baby lying on back shots, etc. Keep that in mind for any outfits you bring, many shots may be waist/chest up. Oh, and baby can be awake for this session! If baby will fall asleep we will do some sleeping shots as well.

Seven/Eight Month Sitter Session:

Please arrive with baby fed and ready for action 🙂 Definitely bring 1-3 favorite outfits from home. I advice neutral light colors like beige, light grey, white with no logos, stripes etc.The baby needs to  sit up unassisted. Baby’s safety is my top priority so I will ask a parent to always be at arm’s reach. Some tummy shots and baby on back shots may be included as well. Please wait at least three to four days if baby will be having shots prior to the photo session.

One Year Photo Session:

 Hard to believe your baby is already one! Please arrive with baby fed and bring 1-3 outfits from home. I advice neutral light colors like beige, light grey, white with no logos, stripes etc. And also pink/blue 🙂 Please note that I do not do cake smashes in the studio. But we can do one Summertime if the photo session is outside in the park. But note that I do not have any decorations for cake smashes. Please don’t forget about the baby’s one-year vaccination schedule, so let’s do the photo shoot before or at least 3-4 days after vaccines were done.

Sessions are meant for your baby only. A fee of $40 will be applied for each additional person included in the photo session.
