Capturing the 6 Month Milestone

It’s no secret I adore 6 month sessions. Little Akasha is the cutest with those big brown eyes! The 6 month milestone is one session that you do not want to miss out on capturing. It’s full of curiosity, giggles, and bursting with images that highlight your baby’s sweet personality.

Organic and Timeless Baby Portraiture

This session was done at my in-home studio in San Elijo where warm neutrals and soft light are abundant. Capturing their personality and curiosity is all a part of these milestone sessions! That is the beauty of documenting the little years – these images will become precious keepsakes of your sweet bonding time with your littles when they were tiny and you were their whole world. It’s also a beautiful time to capture a few nursing shots if you are breastfeeding.

Benefits of the Collective Membership Program

This is our 3rd session together – before Akasha’s sweet 6 month session, I photographed their maternity and his newborn sessions in the Collective Membership Program. I can’t wait to capture his 1 year milestone in a few short months!

Little ones grow so fast, from tiny babe to toddler – and so much about your baby changes during those short months! This membership is a wonderful opportunity for mamas to get their portraits scheduled with me to document all the big moments of their growing family. The membership offers priority booking, bundled sessions at a discounted rate ($100 discount per session) + $100 discount at each ordering appointment. Your sessions must be completed within an 18 month time frame (maternity, newborn, 6 month and 1 year milestone are the most popular, but you can book a session anytime during that timeframe). For more information on pricing and investment in my portrait experiences, click here.
