Milestones

Each little stage is such a big moment.  Those days are fleeting, let me help you remember the moments between newborn and first birthday.

baby’s first year really flies by

As a milestone photographer, I love watching your kids grow up before my eyes. To make the most of these photographs, I suggest booking your sessions around these classic milestones:

3-4 months

This is a fun age where they are smiling and giggling, but to get the most variety out of this milestone you want to make sure they can lift their heads to look forward when propped up on their elbows

6-7 months

To get the most variety here you want them sitting on their own, but not quite crawling away.  This session I capture those sitting moments (even if it’s with help), playing with toes, big smiles, and tummy time, which they are not superstars at, and might be pushing up in preparation to crawl.

8-9 months

They’re accomplished crawlers and just able to pull themselves up on furniture and stand with support  Here we will do supported standing poses and sitting positions.

Hazel was at the studio today for her 18 month session. I can not believe the spunky little newborn has turned into an adorable (still spunky) little 18 month old. It’s been such a delight watching her grow up. Each and every session brings laughter and a lot of work....

6 Month Photographer | Demian

6 Month Photographer | Demian

My goodness. My day today was made brighter by getting to be Demian's 6 month photographer. He is so stinking cute you guys, I can't handle it. Of course, why do kids choose photo day to not nap? Or to get up way earlier, or pop a tooth. It's always bad timing. I feel...

Isaac was in the studio for his Oakland Twp Sitter session. While he was there, we also captured some of his big brother, Evan for his 2nd birthday. Evan was a little busy body. Boy oh boy by the time he left I was sweating and needed a nap. He spent the time I was...

Mt Clemens 6 month session | Isla

Isla has grown so much! It was so fun to hang out with her at her 6 month session. I'm not completely sure the feeling was mutual, but I really enjoyed it. She's a total doll, and I worked really hard to try for smiles. While she wasn't super smiley, she did deliver...
