Baby Milestone Photographer | Nashville

If you are looking for a baby milestone photographer, you have come to the right place! These are some of my favorite sessions. Instead of photographing ages such as 3, 6, 9, 12 months, I prefer to photograph your baby’s milestones. Some of the most popular baby milestone photographer sessions are tummy time, sitting, pushing up on all fours, and standing. When you schedule your session, I can make recommendations for the ages and stages that are best.

Sitter Photography Sessions

Sitter sessions usually take place around 6-7.5 months. These are some of my absolute favorite sessions. Our studio is fully stocked with outfits, props, headbands, and more. There is no need to bring a thing! Our clients always comment on how this makes their session so much less stressful. No need to go shopping and no worries about forgetting something!

When you choose me as your baby milestone photographer, we will plan your session based on the milestone your baby has reached. Most sessions take about 30-45 minutes and include 2 outfit changes. I love bare skin too. It keeps the focus just on baby. So we may strip your baby down to diaper (or none) and capture simple images with the focus only on baby. I have a client form that you fill out at booking. This is your chance to tell me your style, favorite images, what you want out of your session, and more. I never shoot the same setup twice. I want every session to be unique and fit your needs.

Meet Liya. She is one of our First Moments clients. I’ve photographer her in her mommy’s belly, as a newborn, and now as a sitter. She is just gorgeous and as sweet as they come. I have truly loved all of our sessions together.
