The sweetest milestone sitter session in Atlanta, GA. From Addison’s newborn session to her six month session, could this girl get any cuter?
I am a newborn photographer in Atlanta, GA, which means milestone sessions come with the territory. This six month sitter session might be my new favorite thing. I encourage parents to schedule milestone sessions when baby is around six months old and one year old. At six months, babies are learning to sit on their own as well as become more interested in looking around, rolling, and crawling. At one year, babies have their first birthday (and cake smash!). Babies around one year old should also be starting to walk and explore more independently. I include the six months and one year milestones in my First Year Collective newborn packages, and they are two of my favorite milestones to capture.
Those leg rolls!!! I could die!
Milestone sessions are a great way to capture memories of what is most important to baby at this stage. I encourage parents to bring blankets, loveys, pacifiers, special toys – anything that baby is really loving right now. The Arasmiths will look back on these images for years to come and remember how much Addison loved playing with that lovey and toy rings!
Moments like these are so special, and need to be preserved because babies just grow too dang fast! If you are an expectant mama, contact me to learn more about the First Year Collective. You can also book milestone sessions separately. I love the Collective, though, because the end result is a gorgeous album of your baby’s first year. First-year albums make fantastic heirlooms to pass on to your children and reminisce on as they grow older. Albums also make great gifts for grandparents and other family members. Printing and displaying your images in frames or albums is much better than them sitting on your phone or stuck away in a desk somewhere! Your children are the most important (and most expensive!) thing in your life, so don’t let these images gather dust hidden in drawers.
We also included this special heirloom bonnet and knit socks, which were made by Addison’s great grandmother and worn by her own mama as a baby. Not only does this make for a sweet image, but would be such a special gift for grandparents! What’s better than an adorable framed image of their grandbaby wearing handmade items their own child wore long ago?

I even have a curated list of recommended gowns I can provide if you would like to purchase your own but aren’t sure where to start looking! For milestone and newborn sessions, I have a portable studio backdrop that I bring to your home. This includes gorgeous props such as Moses baskets and more.

I know that, if one thing in this world is true for mamas, it’s that babies don’t stay teenie forever. In the space of even a few months, photographs of those tiny fingers and toes are going to become priceless!
