What is a Baby Milestone Photo Session?

A Baby Milestone Session is a photo shoot at my studio for babies aged between 3 months and 18 months.

Typically the session occurs around a certain milestone such as tummy time, sitting, crawling or walking. The session focuses on capturing natural, timeless photographs of your baby to document their tiny details, growing personality, and new skills.

Baby’s change SO much in the first year and a half. They go from tiny, sleepy newborns to mobile, opinionated toddlers in just 18 short months. I love being able to offer milestone sessions in order to create a timeline of your baby’s growth and development with beautiful photos that all go well together on your walls and in your albums. 

When is the best time for a Milestone Session?

I discuss my favorite ages for sessions within the first year in this post. If you want to fully capture your baby’s first year, I recommend scheduling a newborn session, a session between 3-6 months, 6-9 months and 12 months. Typically these sessions are held mid-day (between 10am-2pm), ideally right after they’ve woken up from their nap and been fed so they are nice and fresh!

What should I expect from a Milestone Session?

Milestone Sessions take place in my white, natural light studio in Lexington, MA and are up to 40 minutes in length. They are baby focused – I love capturing close ups of their toes, fingers, chunky leg rolls, eyes, lips, etc. We usually have enough time for 2-3 simple outfits. They also can include mom, dad and siblings.

Caroline Winn is a newborn photographer and specializes in maternity, newborn, and family photography located just 10 miles north west of Boston, Massachusetts.

If you love these photos, and you are looking for a Boston area newborn photographer I would love to begin planning your session. To see more of my maternity & newborn portfolio, and to learn more about working with me, please get in touch here.
