What is a milestone session?
A milestone session is a way to capture the special milestone moments during your babies first year of life. These are typically done at 6 months, 8 months, and 1 year old. 6 month sessions are done with baby in poses natural to them inside of basins or baskets or on the studio beanbag poser. If you prefer images of your child sitting up you will want to wait until the are about 8 months old or sitting up independently. 1 year sessions are so much fun and this is one of my favorite milestones to capture! 1 year sessions can be done with a cake smash, paint theme, bath in a basin, etc.
When & Where?
I typically schedule session for weekday mornings. If this does not work with your babies nap schedule please let me know. We want your little one to be all smiles for the camera and nobody is happy when they need a nap. Milestone sessions are done in studio. If you prefer outdoor images it is better to sign up for a family mini session.
How long is a milestone session?
The length of the mini session depends on the number of outfits and setups that you would like. I offer 30 minute sessions with time for 1 outfit and 1 hour sessions with time for 2 outfits. If you are doing a cake smash a full hour is required. For pricing on these sessions please email me. Clients that came to me for their newborn session always get VIP pricing.
What should my baby wear?
Mommas usually know best when it comes to dressing their kiddos for these sessions. My style lends itself best toward more neutral colors and outfits that aren’t too loud or bright allow the focus to be your sweet little one. I am always happy to help you with your outfit selection and you are welcome to email me if you need help.
How do I reserve a spot?
To book a milestone session simple email me. It is best to try and schedule your session 2-3 months before you would like to come in if possible as I fill up very quickly with newborn sessions.The best way to stay in the loop on scheduled in studio sessions for littles is to join my newsletter and simply email me back when a session comes up that you are interested in.

Are parents included?
Milestone sessions are for baby only.
When will I see my edited images?
I always do my best to get your images back to you as quickly as possible so that you can share with family and friends. During especially busy times it can take 3-4 weeks to get your edited images. When your images are ready to view you will be sent a link via email to see your gallery. If you booked a smaller collection and decide you would like more of the images you always have the option to upgrade.
