Baby Milestone Gallery

Sweet Smiles

From rolling to crawling to standing to walking, there are so many milestones to capture during your baby’s first year.

In the last decade, I have learned quite a bit about photographing little ones. Babies are so full of personality and sweet faces that it honestly makes it hard to choose which portraits to include in your gallery!  As you look through the baby milestone gallery below you’ll see that my style is bright, colorful and fun. I’ve chosen some of my favorite images so you can know what to expect from your session.

The Milestone Session Experience

Milestone photography sessions are for babies 3 months and older. Baby is the main focus of this session, but parents and siblings are welcome to jump in for a few photos. The session itself typically lasts around 45-60 minutes before baby totally loses interest. I have a variety of props and accessories to highlight baby’s current stage, no matter if it’s pushing up, sitting or standing.

Join the First Year Membership

Interested in multiple sessions throughout your baby’s first year? Make sure to ask about my First Year Membership — a set of 2 or 3 discounted milestone sessions (your choice!). Some favorite moments are those sweet smiles around 4 months, sitting and crawling around 6-8 months, and of course the first birthday celebration at one year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have outfits I can borrow for my Baby’s Milestone session?

Yes! Check out my Milestone Client Closet to see the variety of outfits (ranging from 3-12 mo) that you can borrow for your baby’s milestone session.

what if my baby won’t cooperate?

Every child needs something different to be successful at their session. Some kids dive right in with full smiles and others need time to acclimate to me and their environment. And some are serious the whole time — which I honestly adore. I love building a connection with children no matter their needs, and really try to make the whole session fun and stress-free for everyone involved. Remember, babies feed off your energy, so try to leave your stress at home.

What type of outfits do you recommend?

Little baby outfits are so darling, it’s really hard to go wrong! There are just a few tips I would share. First, make sure the clothing fits well. If it’s too large/baggy, it’ll be really obvious in the photos. Second, be careful with too many layers. They can become overwhelming quickly. For example, puffy vests are darling, but the collar tends to just get in the way. Third, think twice about ornery accessories that you need to constantly fix (like suspenders and big bows). By the time it gets fixed, I will have missed the shot. And last, I’d avoid really bright/neon colors as they tend to reflect on the face.

What is the best time of day to schedule a milestone photography session?

This answer completely depends on your baby and his/her schedule. I always ask “when is baby’s happiest time of day,” because it is definitely wise to plan around nap and eating schedules when setting a time to meet. And don’t worry, we can adjust our meeting time if your baby’s schedule changes. Just let me know.

What if my baby isn’t feeling well?

If you or a family member is sick (or have come into contact with someone who is contagious), please reschedule. There is no fee to do so. And take my word for it, little ones who don’t feel good do not do well for photos.
