Milestone Photography

Milestone sessions are a great way to capture beautiful baby images at a key stage in your child’s first year, a time which passes by all too quickly.

Key developmental stages are listed below, but these are very flexible as every baby is unique.

1-6 Months – Babies have uncurled and are starting to smile and interact. We are sometimes able to pose these babies if they sleep during their session, as well as capturing lovely awake shots, including tummy time!

6-9 Months – This is probably one of my most favourite ages to photograph babies at. At this stage babies may be sitting up or lifting themselves up onto all fours, bringing opportunities to pose them sitting in our vintage baskets or tin bath tub. These sessions are fun, and focus on capturing the personality of your little one!

9-12 Months – Babies may be standing, cruising or crawling and their personality is shining through! These sessions focus on celebrating your baby approaching their 1st birthday, capturing them in their last months as a ‘baby’.


Milestone sessions last up to an hour and we advise to book in at a time when your child is at their happiest during the day, and to avoid nap times. We have a great selection of outfits and props for your little one to use, but if there is a special outfit you would like to bring along then please feel free to do so. If you have any specific requests, then please let me know.

After the Session

Around 1-2 weeks after your shoot, your images will be available to view via an online password protected webpage, allowing you, family and friends to view the images and decide on purchases in the comfort of your own home.
