Capture Your Baby's Milestones
Baby milestone sessions are specially designed to accommodate baby as they grow!
Perhaps you chose not to have a posed newborn session, or maybe you wanted it but circumstances prevented it; these milestone sessions are the best way to capture the best of each period.
We will spend our time together capturing the details, expressions and what makes them ‘them’!
Baby milestones are for baby and parents only; if you would like a session including any siblings, please visit the ‘Family Sessions‘ page.
Babies 1-3m are usually too old for the ‘posed’ newborn photography, and often too awake and focused to go into that deep sleep required. I find that with this age, the best results we get are with a natural, relaxed lifestyle session in your own environment, where I will capture photos of baby alone, in addition to some shots with Mom and Dad, and also some breastfeeding shots if desired. We use natural light only for these sessions.
If you would like a specialist posed newborn session for babies less than 4 weeks of age, please visit the ‘Newborn Sessions‘ page.
Babies 4-6m are awake and sometimes smiley, but they tire quickly. They are also not yet able to sit unsupported. At this age I focus on cute expressions, connection with the camera, smiles and some images of baby with Mom and Dad. Breastfeeding shots are also welcome if desired.
Babies Sitting Up
Babies Sitting Up (usually 7m-1 year) are a lot of fun to photograph – they are happy and giggly, and able to stay awake for longer periods. As they can sit, we are able to get a lot more variety in the session and could either have the photoshoot outdoors if weather permits, or in my Neenah studio.
Baby milestone sessions are about 1.5 hours long and take place either in my Neenah studio, an outdoor location or in your home. I cover Appleton, Neenah, The Fox Valley, Green Bay and surrounds; travel costs may apply depending on location.
On booking you will be sent an information sheet to help you prepare for the day and make the most of our time together.
Following your session, you’ll want to show off your new photographs at their very best; I offer a variety of personally selected, luxurious albums and canvases and other premium products available for purchase, in addition to digital files which can be purchased within a package or as a digital only collection.
