What a little sweetheart this gorgeous girl was! I loved this session so much. I don’t normally do much in the way of props but I always welcome parents bringing in their own to make their babys session unique and special just for them.
Here are just a few of my favourite images (it was hard to choose by the way) from 13 month old Miss I’s General session. She ended up with a very full gallery due to being such a little superstar! As I myself find it hard to pick and choose favourites, I don’t expect my clients to do that hard task either, so all my packages are all inclusive of all edited images taken on the day minus misfires and duplicates. My clients can choose in their own time which images they love the most 🙂
If theres one session I look forward to the most, it would have to be the baby milestone session. Its just so exciting for me seeing my little mini newborn clients come back with a whole heap of personality and lots and lots of smiles and giggles! They do change so fast, its hard to believe that this little sweetheart was just a little tiny bundle of goodness at when I first photographed her at 11 days old. I’m almost positive she slept the entire time for her newborn session, and here she is now, all grown up, as cute as ever, wide awake and full of gorgeous chubby 6 months personality!

These quick milestone sessions are only 20 to 30 minutes long and just the perfect amount of time for the older baby to come in, get warmed up, enjoy themselves for a little while before losing interest and giving up on the whole idea of having their photos taken :))). I usually ask that parents bring baby in already dressed and ready to go if possible and I always encourage the parents to jump in and have a few photos taken with their baby as well. This serves two purposes. For the shy baby, its always comforting to have their Mum or Dad nearby and secondly, its the perfect opportunity to have some updated photos to look back on in years to come.
Seeing my newborns return as older babies for their Baby’s 1st Year Milestone Session is really something special. It is a blessing to watch these babies grow up and develop such individual personalities. I first met this handsome little guy, Mister E when he was a teeny tiny baby. He then came back at 3 months and just recently as a happy giggly 7 month old. I cannot wait to see him as a one year old.
Milestone sessions are captured when:
Babies are laying on three belly and comfortably lifting up their head (approx 3 to 4 months)
They are sitting up well unassisted for short periods of time (approx 6 to 7 months)
And are just learning to stand without help (approx 1 year)
My quick milestone mini sessions are available for past newborn clients only and stay within my preferred clean, simple style on white/light setups. They are currently priced at $80 per session and is a perfect opportunity to get a few extra shots of baby as they move from milestone to milestone. Some babies at this age can start to get a little shy so its always best for parents to be prepared to jump into the shots too if needed.
