Milestone sessions are so much fun!! This little guy is a new sitter-upper and that is a perfect time for a milestone session! How can you tell if your baby is ready for a 6 month milestone session? Can they sit up all by themselves without their legs/feet turning purple and without bending too far forward? If you answered yes, then it’s time! I prefer to call these sessions “Sitter Sessions” and not 6 month sessions because babies will develop the skill to sit up at all different times, not just 6 months. Some babies will be able to sit up at 5 months and some sit at 7 months, so it is the ability to sit that we are looking for, not a specific month.
The weather was just gorgeous on the day of this little guy’s session – it was going to be one of those 80+ degree days- so we did the first half of the session in my outside studio area and then we did the second part of his baby photography session inside the studio. Before his session his mama and I chatted about clothing colors that would work beautifully outside (baby’s red shirt is perfect!) and then we talked about what he should wear for his studio session. I love hoodies on babies and his blue hoodie matched his eyes just about perfectly! Then, of course, we had to do a belly picture of this cutie pie and oh my goodness his blue eyes, his red hair and a little old baseball is just too adorable!
