Milestones for Professional Baby Pictures
"When is the best time to take take baby photos?" This is a frequent question new parents have. Our answer? There's never a bad time to take studio baby photos, you'll just be capturing different milestones and all are special. Here's a handy guide–from our newborn photographer–of what to expect at your baby photo shoot at different stages.
3 days to 3 weeks - During the first few weeks the beauty and innocence of this time is unmatched in newborn baby photography as you bond with your greatest creation.
2 - 4 months - Your child's will be growing quickly and soon ready for tummy time whether they like it or not. The smiles have arrived. Mornings will be the best time for photos.
THE BIG SIT
6 to 8 months - The prime time for the quintessential baby photos. With a gummy grin and an easy laugh this is not a stage to miss...a favorite of baby photographers.
1 year - By now baby is pulling up on furniture and tentatively exploring first steps - hallmarks of this age. There will never be another birthday quite like this one.
Your baby is soon to arrive or may already be here. The first year presents a number of great opportunities for studio baby photography. We are here to help you savor those fleeting moments so you can look back over the years to see how your child began. Your baby photo shoot may also include siblings or grandparents at this session. Everyone's welcome.

Baby Photographers Capture Sweet Sibs in Baby Portraits
A new baby is as much a joy and challenge for your first-born children as it is for you. Some embrace the arrival of the littlest family member, and others are uncertain how to react. We seek to capture the most tender, enchanting and funny moments in familial relationships. Our photographers have years of experience working with excited toddlers.
What to Wear?
With baby and newborn photography there are a couple simple rules. Choose clothes for parents that are flattering, simple, in darker color tones and in a color palette that compliments your chosen backgrounds. Little brothers and sisters should wear textured fabrics in solid colors or subtle prints, bare arms are nice for holding the new baby.
