Another 9 months girl stole my heart during her baby milestone photography session. It was not hard at all to get her to giggle. Her face lit up every time she looked at mom. I also love the slight variations in her smiles. Those tiny variations in a baby's expression are seen everyday by the parents but how will they be remembered 10 years from now? That's why I can't stress the importance of milestone pictures the first year of life. Parents can schedule the sessions based on the age or developmental stage depending on what you are trying to document. Below is a general timeline but will vary by baby
3 Months (Lifters): Poses will mostly be baby lying down and if possible with baby on his/her tummy with the head lifted.
6 Months (Sitters): Poses will be laying down, on their tummy/knees, and sitting if ready.
9 Months (Standers): Now we can do a great variety of positions sitting and standing without the baby being too mobile.
