Baby Basics

Baby photography, not to be confused with newborn photography, encompasses several milestones. Generally speaking, we are talking in terms of the 3, 6, 9 month and 1-year milestones. But photographically speaking, it is best to schedule sessions during your baby’s actual stages so your pictures look different from one another. In other words, at 3 months we generally have the pushing up stage, where your baby is starting to push up on his or her arms. They also lay on their back a lot and grab their feet while at 6 months or a little later, they are sitting up. The difference in your baby’s body posture will make your portrait more prominent and show your babies milestones more pronouncedly.
