In my opinion there is no bad time to do photos of your baby. They grow and change so much in that first 12 months, capturing their ever changing needs is an honor. To this end, I can create discounted packages for families who would like to capture more than one stage.
Baby sessions can include photos with immediate family members at no additional charge.
The location of the shoot is entirely up to you. We can do photos in the studio, or go to a park, lake or setting that you love or have a relaxed session in your own home. Please don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations – I am happy to share my experience with you, but I also love shooting somewhere new.
I am frequently asked what the “ideal” months are to photograph. My answer is always “it depends on your child”. Developmentally, your child will grow at his or her own pace. They may be early to sit but slow to crawl. They may be slow to crawl but then move quickly onto standing and walking.
To this end, I tend to recommend to families that they capture the milestones rather than focus on the month. If we book a session and they haven’t reached that milestone yet, I am happy to postpone/reschedule a week or so, so they are.
Milestones that can be fun to capture
Smiling – 1-2 months
tummy time – pushing up with strength and smiling – typically around 4-5 months
Sitting – around 5-8 months
Standing – 8 months +
Walking – 10 months +
