Baby's First Year and Beyond

Baby Milestone Sessions | CT Baby Photographer


Some of the most precious things on this planet are little humans. A close second are those who take care of these little ones; the joy that’s spread across their faces when they watch their babies “pose” for the camera is one of my favorite sights. That joy is what makes Baby Milestone Sessions so important to have, as it captures that joy and preserves it until long after the child becomes an adult. And as every parent knows, time passes so quickly, and before you know it your kiddo is all grown up. Capturing their milestones as they happen, starting from their first weeks, all the way to their first birthday will, in essence, stop the march of time. Every step along the way is a precious moment begging to be remembered by the whole family, and Baby Milestone Sessions allow you to do just that.

When choosing your Milestone Session, there are multiple packages to choose from, depending on which suits your needs best. If you’re looking for a few wonderful images of your child and some flexibility, then the Mini Session is perfect for you. The session is available for babies between 1 month and 12 months old, which means you can’t really be late to the game. There is also the Baby’s First Year Package, which comes in two styles, to highlight different milestones. The first style includes three 20-minute sessions, held at 4 months, 8 months, and 12 months. Each session, like the Mini Session, includes 4 professionally edited high-res photos of your little one in the studio, with the option for additional prints to be purchased.

For the second style of First Year Package, the focus is on the milestones your child hits at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months, which means you will get four sessions in the studio, and 4 images from each session. These studio sessions are fantastic, because you have the whole studio wardrobe and all the props available to you to choose from, to surround your baby in its own budding personality. And of course, there’s always the option to upgrade your 12 month session in a First Year plan to a Cake Smash Session, which is perfect for those who want to make their child’s first birthday a “smash!”

I love to get to know each family before the session, so each package includes a pre-session questionnaire and planning via phone or email. This allows me to know exactly who your child is, and how best to represent who they are in their session, as well as help you to be comfortable knowing that your baby is in good hands.

The beauty of your child deserves to be captured, and remembered throughout their whole lives. Those milestones, as precious and as monumental as they are, only last for a brief moment. Often we let these moments slip by unnoticed, but there is a way to stop the march of time.

Simply contact me and book your portraits – it’s the perfect time for a Baby Milestone Session.
