As a Scottsdale Baby Photographer, I always encourage families to celebrate the smaller milestones in between the bigger ones. Your baby’s first year of life is full of many changes. Within one year they go from sleeping most of the day to suddenly walking and talking and being more aware of the world around them. To say they grow way too quickly is an understatement. The first year can easily feel like a blurb! Once you realize how quickly time goes by, these moments become PRICELESS!
Before you consider booking a 6-month milestone session, I’d like for you to consider where your baby currently is in development. Your baby’s personal development determines what their photo session will look like. Most importantly, you want to consider if your baby is sitting unsupported. The 6-month milestone session is also referred to as a “sitter session” for that reason.

While they have been aware and learning since birth, they’re now exchanging interaction. There are many milestones for this age group, but a few may make for a more exciting 6-month photo milestone session.

Please keep in mind, there is no hard rule that your baby must meet one or all of the milestones listed in order to have the photo session. Documenting where they are in life around this age is what matters most. As your Scottsdale Baby Photographer will always meet your baby where they are at any given stage in their life.
