Milestone

About the Session

Many families choose to have their baby photographed several times during their first year, which makes perfect sense. This is the time when babies are growing and changing so quickly, after all! With all those midnight feedings and the drowsy haze of early parenting, it can be easy to forget the details of your little one’s tiny toes and the dimples of their knees. Photographs help us remember what we hope to never forget. Often called milestone sessions, many family photographers recommend scheduling these sessions as a newborn, at three months, six months, nine months and at one year old. Because every baby is different and unique in their own way, I refer to these guidelines while also considering the age and stage your baby is at. The goal of milestone photography sessions is to capture what is new and different for your child, versus focusing on a specific age. Here is a look at each milestone session below, what is typically new for that age and how to know when to schedule your individualised session times.  

And with all the midnight feedings and feeling like you are in a drowsy haze in those early days, it can be easy to forget the details of how tiny their toes were or those chubby dimpled knees. Photographs help us to remember what we hope to never forget.
Often called milestone sessions, family photographers often recommend scheduling these sessions as a newborn (7-14 days old), at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and then one year.
Because every child is different and will reach milestones in their own time, I like to look at these photography sessions based on your baby. The goal is to capture what is new and different for your child, rather than a specific age. So let’s look at each milestone session, what is important and new about that milestone and how to know when to schedule your session.

Session description

This session is all about your baby’s smile!
This is personally one of my favourite aspects of a baby’s first few months. I love to see babies light up with their gummy, toothless grins when they see their parents. The focus of the three month photo session is to capture your baby’s beautiful smile and their unique expressions. Rather than booking this session spot on at the three months, plan to schedule it when your child has more frequent smiles and laughs when they see you.

This session is all about your child’s wonderful new skill of sitting up. This is such a big milestone! Once your baby can sit up on their own, they can see so many new things by looking around. They also begin to play with toys that they couldn’t while laying down. This session usually includes loads of big grins and those “look at me” faces of pride. 

Six months is also the time when parents often begin to see their baby’s looks start to change. They have moved out of the “newborn stage” and may have more hair to pull into a little sprout or clip back. A tooth or two may also have started to appear and your child may have discovered and begun to explore their adorable little feet. Is there anything cuter than a baby nibbling on their tiny toes? While sitting up is the focus of the six month milestone session, these are also details that we will be sure to capture. Plan to schedule this photography session when your baby is sitting up for a few minutes at a time without assistance.

This is the time when your little one may be pulling themselves up on furniture, standing while holding onto sturdy objects, crawling or even taking a few wobbling steps while holding your hands. These are the milestones that seem to vary the most from child to child. At nine months some children are doing all of these, while others may also be walking! It is also common for babies to not tackle these skills for a few more months. This is why I always recommend that my families wait until this time to decide if they want to include a nine month milestone session in their first year plan. Like the previous sessions, we want to capture what is new in your child’s life. This may be pulling up, standing or crawling, or it may photographing them with that stuffed animal or toy that they won’t let out of their sight.

This is a time to document just how much your baby has grown and changed in one year. You will want to schedule this baby photography session near when your child is turning one, even if there are no new milestones at that time. Our goal is to capture your baby and their personality at one year old. This photo session may include a cake for smashing or more closely resemble the style of your baby’s previous milestone sessions- the choice is yours!
