What are Milestone Sessions?
Milestone sessions are designed to capture your baby or child while they celebrate either their most recent milestone or birthday. You want a handful of professional portraits to have as a special memory but don’t need a full session. Milestone sessions are specifically for babies 3-4 months, 6 months, 9 months, or children over 2 years old.
Why these ages? Let’s talk about the baby milestones – at 3-4 months they are smiling in response and holding their head up when on their belly. At 6-7 months they are usually sitting independently. Meanwhile, at 9 months they are usually learning to crawl and rocking on all fours. At these ages, you can really capture your baby’s growth and milestones they are learning without needing a full portrait session. Read more about the different milestones at each age here.
The ages of newborn & one year are excluded for these sessions. This is because much more usually go into these and I am not able to give parents the experience I want them to have in such a short time.
For children ages 2 and up, it’s a great way to capture who they are and how much they have grown year to year. I love looking back at my own child’s growth every year. It truly is amazing how much change can take place!
What’s the difference between a Milestone Session and a full Signature Session?
A Milestone Session is short and sweet at around 15-20 minutes! You get more posed portraits as opposed to a mix of candid and posed. A Signature Session has all the bells and whistles and is about an hour long (with the exception of a newborn session which can be 2-3 hours long). For both a Milestone and Signature Sessions, you have access to my studio wardrobe…definitely an added bonus!
