Newborn Photography Jacksonville | Florida Photographer | Milestone Session

Milestone baby sessions are a perfect way to capture the sweet personality of your baby that is growing and changing everyday. This session is the first milestone that I recommend after your newborn photographs; around 4 months old. No longer a newborn, but still tiny and sweet, this stage is special because your baby is starting to make eye contact, smile, and hold their head up. It is a great way to document the special time before baby is sitting on their own.  Read more below about this Jacksonville baby session!

Newborn Photography Jacksonville | Milestone Session

This sweet little guy came to me for his four month session in the fall. His mom and I had previously talked over the phone about ideas in regards to color schemes, etc and we were all so excited to plan! When they arrived, I felt like I knew his mom forever! She was an incredibly sweet person, and I could tell right away just how special this little boy way.

Since a milestone session is with an "older" baby, it typically only takes about 45 minutes or less to complete a full gallery, as compared to a newborn session that takes a bit longer. With the four month milestone, babies are usually starting to hold their heads up, so we try a mix of tummy time, as well as photos with baby lying on their back. We realized quickly that this sweet baby was not enjoying tummy time, so we kept him on his back to keep him comfortable. He wasn't too sure about me at first, but that's ok and completely normal at this age. I let him sit in his mom's lap for a few photographs, and got some ADORABLE smiles from him with my goofy faces. After he warmed up, we were able to get more photographs of him independently, and he was so sweet! His little face was so precious, and he even gave us some adorable shots with his little tongue out!

This baby session was such a joy, and I cannot wait to see him again for his next milestone in a few weeks; sitting! Stay tuned!
