It can be easy to start strong in the beginning and then let your family photographs get relegated to quick and easy cell phone shots.

While wanting to save some money is understandable, is it really worth minimizing the excitement in watching your baby start to develop their personality and grow?

Not to diminish the significance of your baby as a newborn, but it’s the pictures taken at various stages in the coming months that will document your child as they discover the world around them.

A professional milestone photographer guarantees you gorgeous photographs that will have your baby’s personality shine through.

Milestone Photographer

Melinda is a fantastic photographer, she cared for my girls so well during our sessions. She was extremely professional and my family felt safe and so comfortable in her studio. She had the magic touch because both of my babies did so wonderful during our sessions with her. Melinda’s work is truly beautiful and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my most precious memories!

Some of the most photographically exciting ages are:

3 months: Baby isn’t quite a newborn any longer. This is when baby is starting to recognize people and loves to smile. Nothing like catching that sweet moment when baby gives a great big grin at their adoring mama! This is also when they can usually hold their head up well enough to get some fun tummy shots.

6-7 months: This is when you really see the start of their personality shining through and is such a fun session! They are usually able to sit up well on their own and are easily amused with what is in front of them without you needing to worry about them running off. Oh the joy!

1 year:
Adorable, cake playing photos are great for this one! Their ability to walk may vary but they are usually able to stand well on their own at this point. Watching them become completely engrossed with the cake in front of them (and not always acting how you would expect!) can make a memory of this session often as dear as the resulting photographs. Showing them really digging in and having fun with their cake will often become one of everyone’s favorite pics and are a perfect way to cap off the end of their first year.
