6 month milestones are one of my favorites – baby is sitting up unsupported around this time which opens up many new posing options! They are also super smiley at this age as you can see from Miss Teagan’s face. She is such a beautiful little girl and it was so fun to photograph her again. Enjoy a few of my favorites from her session!

Milestone sessions are one of my favorites because it’s such a great way to document your baby’s growth. They change so much in that first year, it’s quite remarkable! I wouldn’t have recognized miss Savannah if I saw her on the street because she looked so different than she did at her newborn session. She might have changed in the 3 months since I last saw her but she was still just as beautiful that’s for sure! Enjoy a few of my favorites from this sweethearts 3 Month Session.

You may be wondering, “Do I really need to hire a professional to do my newborn’s photoshoot? I can just take pictures of my new baby with my smart phone and they will come out great!” When deciding if hiring a professional to do your newborn shoot is the right choice for your growing family, there are a few things to consider.
POSING, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, & PROPS: A professional photographer will pay close attention to the details. With newborn photography, babies are posed right down to the position of their hands and lips. Blankets are smoothed out. Fabrics are ironed. Background clutter is removed. The time of day and babies’ feeding schedule are taken into consideration. The temperature and ambiance of the room is carefully planned. Every part of the image and your session is carefully planned to ensure that you get the best images possible. There are certain variables that a professional photographer knows how to manipulate to help ensure an easier and more successful session. You also get to access a professional photographers prop collection (such as mine) and won’t have to worry about purchasing your own props.
Lifestyle Newborn Session:
If you decide to go with my lifestyle session, I am able to direct you in choosing the best light in your home and am trained to make suggestions based on what is available.
Styled Newborn Session:
If choosing a styled session, you will have access to many of my safe newborn props, wraps, blankets, and outfits. If you want to include some things of your own, you are welcome to do so too!
The first moments with your new little one are going to be gone in the blink of an eye, and you don’t want to miss an opportunity to have those priceless first moments captured forever. In a few weeks, your newest member of the family will look so different, and you will wish you had those memories. If you have any questions about newborn photography, feel free to contact me at 612-440-3031 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Miss Emmy was such a sweetheart and a photographer’s dream! She was asleep for her entire session! Her big sister was such a delight and absolutely loved taking photos with her new best friend. I can’t wait to see how these two are together in a few years. Enjoy a few of my favorites from this gorgeous session.
