Every time my children reach a new milestone, I can’t help but feel happy and sad at the same time. Happy that they are growing up and sad they are no longer my baby! Once your sweet baby is born, you’ll be amazed at how fast the time goes. Baby goes through so many changes throughout that first year that you’ll blink, and your baby achieves the next milestone.
This is why I love it when clients come to me for milestone photography. We can capture each of the major milestones for you so that you know they’re being documented and preserved. You’ll always have these images to look back on and remember each sweet moment from that first year with your baby.
Let me share a little more about which milestones you might want to document and the three surprising benefits of documenting them.
Baby Milestone Photography
Newborn - Your child’s first official portraits are usually captured within the first two weeks of life. Newborn photography documents how tiny and precious your sweet baby was right after birth. You’ll look back on these and be in awe of your tiny baby.
Six Month - Around six months, your baby will learn to sit up! These sessions are extra adorable because now baby has those chubby cheeks, wrist rolls, and will smile big for the camera. Every baby develops differently, and it’s such a joy to document what milestones your baby has achieved.
1 Year - First birthday portraits and cake smashes are always a blast to document! We’ll celebrate your baby’s first birthday with a custom session that tells the story of your baby’s first year with a memorable photoshoot.
2 Years - By two years, your child is officially a toddler! Two-year-olds are so fun to document as they are so curious about the world around them and are starting to really show off their personalities.
Any Milestone - Don’t let this list hold you back. Every milestone in your child’s life is worthy of a custom session.
Here are a few other milestone session ideas;
You’ll never regret taking milestone portraits of your child. Now, let me share three surprising benefits of documenting your baby’s milestones.
3 Surprising Benefits of Documenting Your Baby’s Milestones
Peace of Mind that Milestones are Documented - Your baby will grow fast during her first year of life. Between taking care of a baby, your family, your job, and yourself, you’ll have a lot on your plate. Professionally documenting your baby’s milestones throughout that first year assures you that you will have portraits of each one.
Tell Your Baby’s Story - Capturing each precious milestone for your baby means you can create a custom heirloom album that features each milestone session. You’ll be able to enjoy looking back on your baby’s first year as your child grows up and, eventually, pass their album onto them to share with future generations.
Cohesive Portrait Artwork - Documenting each milestone with the same photographer ensures your portrait artwork will look cohesive and look beautiful. As a milestone photographer, I plan your sessions with the end in mind of how you want to display these portraits. That way, you’re sure to love the final portrait artwork that you choose.
I can’t slow down your baby’s first year for you, but I can capture and preserve your memories of each precious milestone. You can feel rest assured that you’ll have cherished portrait artwork of your child to remember each wonderful stage. On the days you feel like your baby is growing too fast, you can look back on your artwork with a smile.
