At the end of your baby’s first year, you will receive a collage of 4 pictures. Try to keep that in mind when picking outfits. You may want to have your baby wear white or pastel for one outfit at each milestone session so the pictures will go well together. If you like bright colors, choose a different bright color for 1 outfit at each milestone session.

3 months- Studio or your baby’s nursery is recommended, but if the weather is perfectly safe for your baby to be outdoors, then schedule outdoors. Babies cannot regulate their temperature well at this age so keep that in mind in cold or hot weather.

6,9,12 months – Outdoors if the weather is nice. Otherwise, indoors.

Outdoor location ideas: Southern homes and Gardens,Blount cultural park, Jasmine Hill, Old Cloverdale or natural areas.

Scheduling notes:

Schedule the session for a time of day when baby is rested and happy.

Do not schedule a session too soon after baby has had shots. The baby will not be happy no matter what tricks I have up my sleeves. Wait at least four days if baby will be having shots prior to the photo session.  

Please message me a date preference 2 weeks to 6 weeks prior to the milestone you want to capture so I can get you the date and time you want!

Final thoughts:

Always keep the session and what you do during the session age-appropriate. If a baby has not reached a developmental milestone, please do not push them or try to fake it at the session. Work with your baby on milestones leading up to your session date to help them reach these goals. Scheduling the session a few weeks after each milestone month will give them more time to work on physical milestones. Please remember that these little individuals are human beings that deserve our respect. They should be treated as people and not a prop. Keep them safe always and remember to have fun!
