Baby Milestone Photography Sessions

Milestone sessions are a perfect way to capture gorgeous professional images of your growing little(s) in between the annual family portraits. They allow you to capture your baby’s first year of firsts. Perhaps not THE firsts, but definitely capturing the essence of their milestones. Milestones are small yet important events in your child’s life, like smiling, rolling, sitting, crawling, standing, and of course their first birthday. These make for perfect wall piece additions, a collection of keepsake boxes or photo albums, or an heirloom album of baby’s first year. Our special Grow With Me Baby Plan has a selection of booking bundles and bonuses when scheduling more than one milestone session with your newborn portraits.

The Booking Process

It’s never too early to book your baby sessions to ensure availability. The best times to photograph your little one is when they achieve important milestones. The most popular are when they can hold up their heads, when they can sit up on their own, when they can crawl, and for their first birthday. A client favorite is when they start to laugh.

To book your session, we collect the creation fee to reserve your session date and time. When booking more than one baby milestone session along with your newborn portraits, you qualify for bonus items. Please ask for details and our current Grow With Me Baby Plan information (newborn session + two or more milestone sessions).

The Session : Setups & Props

We currently offer in-studio or on-location (outdoors) service for your baby milestone sessions.

Our average session consists of approximately 1-3 different setups. We capture a few poses with baby alone in each setup. In addition, we get a few family portraits with parents and siblings (if any) with the upgrade to the Baby&Family session option. Each session is different and all depends on your child’s mood, abilities, and energy levels.

During your consultation, we go over anything specific that you would like for your session. We discuss preferences towards colours, textures, poses, etc.  The studio has a selection of wraps, pant sets, rompers, dresses, and unique wardrobe options for you and your little, to choose from for your session. We often use similar or the same items from your newborn session to show how much your little one has grown. If you would like something custom for your session, we are happy to make recommendations for vendors for you. If it is something that matches the studio’s style (pure, natural, & timeless), we are happy to purchase the item from you and add it to the studio’s stash. See our prop-to-print service for more information.

The Ordering Process

Following your session date, you will return to the studio for your portrait reveal & ordering session. Your personalized proofing gallery will consist of beautifully custom edited photographs, typically yielding 15-30 images from which to place your order, all depending on your session type (newborn-only or newborn&family). During this appointment, we will go through the sample products again and decide which items you prefer. There are a few print collections to choose from, a build-your-own collection option, and a-la-carte printing is also available for our staple products. The detailed process and pricing will be discussed at your consultation.

Print certificates can be purchased in advance (upon booking) to receive a 10% bonus credit. Inquire for details.
