Every Session is Different 

Milestone sessions are fun, especially when we get to see their little personalities coming out! Unfortunately, sometimes “stranger anxiety” is kicking in and they aren’t all smiles like they are when at home with you! But we are very patient and will do all the tricks we know to get some smiles. We will also rely on your help! 🙂

Things To Consider Bringing

A friend / spotter

If your baby is super mobile, you may want to bring someone to help wrangle and spot the baby while also having someone directly behind the camera helping them laugh.

If your baby has a sentimental favorite toy or stuffy that would look nice in a photo, feel free to bring it.
