Below is a list of commonly asked questions about milestone sessions. If you have a question that is not covered here, please feel free to contact me to have your question answered.
What is a Milestone session?
Milestone sessions are typically done anytime during baby’s first year (although it can include toddler and preschool-age years). This can include first smiles or tummy time (3-5 months), sitting unassisted (6-8 months), or crawling/standing (9-12 months) or anytime in between.
When do I schedule a milestone session for my child?
Milestone sessions can be booked as early as you know you want them. I recommend booking a few months in advance to ensure I have availability. There are certain times of the year where my calendar books up faster than others.
Can we schedule the session around my baby’s nap time?
Absolutely – my goal is to capture photos of a happy baby! Since all babies are different, it’s hard to tell how they will react during the photo session and I cannot guarantee any specific poses or smiles. However, we will do our best to choose a time when they are typically the happiest – after a nap and with a full belly! Please also keep in mind vaccination appointments; try not to schedule a photo session a day or two after these to avoid fussiness or soreness.
Can you include parent and/or sibling shots?
At this time, milestone sessions are for the child only. Parent and siblings are not included.
What should I bring to the milestone session?
I just need your baby! I have a variety of props including baskets, bowls, crates, stools, fur layers, and blankets which can be used to style the session with a few different setups (the prop selection will vary based on the age of your child). Feel free to bring a comfort item that your baby loves and that you would not mind being in the photo, if necessary.
What if my child is sick before the session?
A healthy child is a happy child! Please let me know within 24hrs of your session if your child is sick, has a runny nose, or cough, so we can reschedule your session. Since I work very closely with newborns and other children, I need to be extra diligent in protecting my other clients.
Do you offer any discounts on milestone sessions?
Yes! You can save $25 on each additional session when more than one is booked together.
All that sounds great, what do you need from me to book a session?
First, contact me so we can set a date for your session. Once that has been determined, I will require a signed contract and $100 non-refundable deposit to reserve your session date and rate. The contract will be sent to you via email and can be signed digitally. I will also send you an invoice for the deposit which can be paid with a debit or credit card. The remaining balance of your contract will be due on the day of the session.
