Why Milestone Photographs are so Important

You just had a baby, and the last thing on your mind is scheduling photography sessions. You’re giddy with joy when you look at your newest family member. You count their fingers and toes, and you think that you will remember everything about this magical time.

And then the sleep deprivation hits! Your life revolves around changing diapers and making bottles. Before you know it, your newborn is six months old and starting to sit up. Where did the time go?

Maternity sessions

This is an exciting time in your life. You are growing a tiny human being. Every pound you gain and every stretch mark should be celebrated!

A maternity session celebrates you and tells your growing family’s story. Your maternity session can focus solely on mom or include significant others and siblings.

Newborn sessions

While the first few weeks can feel overwhelming, you will experience some of the most precious moments of your life getting to know your little one.

A newborn session will capture these first moments as a new family and create memories that you will treasure forever.

When I was a new mom, the last thing that I wanted to do was have to get the baby dressed and ready, pack the diaper bag, and load everything into the car. You don’t have to do that with in-home sessions. That’s why I prefer in-home newborn sessions. You have enough to worry about right now. Let me make one thing easier for you.

I prefer to do newborn sessions two to eight weeks after birth. Your newborn may be the star of the session, but I want mom to feel her best as well. I remember how I felt after the birth of my kids. Let’s face it, you don’t always feel your best in the first couple of weeks after giving birth. When you look back at your precious memories, I want you to only see the love and connection with your newborn, not extra pregnancy weight or dark circles under your eyes.

Milestone sessions

1st birthday photos

Before you know it, your little one isn’t a baby anymore. Where did the time go? Suddenly, you can’t remember when his first tooth came in or how old she was when she started crawling.

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to document the first 12 months of your baby’s life is with a milestone session.

My milestone package includes sessions at birth, six months, and 1 year.  We will capture memories of your sweet, sleepy newborn, your infant as they learn to sit and crawl, and the moments your little one becomes an independent toddler. We can even capture a cake smash during your 1-year session.

I want to help you remember the moments that matter, and photographing these important stages in your baby’s life will help you cherish the memories for many years to come.
