Well friends, be prepared to for the most adorable babies in this post! I specialize in Dallas baby photography, I just love these milestone sessions! The sitter stage was one of my favorites with my kids. And before I knew it, they were on to bigger and better things like running away from me at record speed!
So many parents choose to document the fleeting newborn stage and first birthday, and rightly so, but there are so many other milestones in between! You know, all of those milestones you record in the baby book?! Those are meaningful too.
Take it from a Mama who knows all too well how quickly babies grow. Documenting milestones like baby’s ability to grab their feet may not seem like much right now- but years from now it will be everything.
That’s why documenting these milestones for families is so important to me. Its the “in-between” milestones that are missed- like the tummy time champion, the happy sitter stage, and the “big” kids too. Those special memories are too sweet to miss out on preserving.
Milestone Sessions | Dallas Baby Photography
One of the things I love about milestone sessions in my studio is the classic, simplicity of these portraits. With limited props the focus can be solely on your little one and all of his or her sweet features. I like to use the Moses basket for some texture, but we can use the bed and chair as well!
Plus, the AHP Client Wardrobe is stocked with everything from classic Feltman Brothers knits to rompers, diaper covers, bonnets and bows- all perfect for these classic portraits of your little one!
Favorite Milestones to Document for your Baby (AND Big Kid!)
Besides newborn and one year sessions (like this recent cake smash!), these are some of my favorites below! Note: Babies will hit these milestones at various ages, so we plan for them whenever they are ready!
At three months babies are starting to gain more weight and may have some arm rolls they are already working on! They have also learned to smile which is one of the most special moments to see as a parent. Around this age babies are getting good at tummy time too!
Six Months (or Sitter Session)
By this point, baby is sitting independently for at least a couple minutes. This gives kids a whole new perspective and is such a joy to photograph! Babies at this stage can hold blocks, have discovered their feet, and their little personality is really starting to shine.
This is such a fun stage! Babies can usually clap at this point, pull up while holding onto furniture, have a couple of their first teeth, and they may be crawling.
At one year you think your baby is so big, but just wait until they lose their first tooth! I know this age is rarely considered for a milestone session, but kids suddenly look so grown up at this age. That step from Kindergartener to 1st Grade is a big one so document them now!
