Looking for minimal + timeless baby portrait photography in Portland, Oregon? Then you've come to the right spot, friend.

You scheduled your maternity and newborn photos. Now what? 

Now, it’s time to think about all of the exciting milestones your baby is going to go through during their first year of life. Things like rolling over, touching toes, sitting up, crawling, standing, walking… the list goes on. There are so many sweet milestones that happen in such a short period of time.The best way to cherish all of these moments is with a baby milestone session to create beautiful keepsakes of your baby’s biggest achievements throughout their first year.

Many of the families I work with love to schedule their milestone sessions around 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and/or 1 year. Typically around these months babies are starting to roll over, sit up, crawl, stand, and walk. Although, just remember every baby is different and may not line up with these milestones at a specific month marker. 

The most popular way to document these baby milestones is with my Baby Plan membership which includes 4 sessions in a 15 month time period and can include, Maternity, Newborn, Sitter, and First Birthday Sessions.

Ashlie has done an amazing job capturing family photos for us. So far we have had a newborn and 3-month session. We ordered an album and a wall hanging from her that turned out amazing! I look forward to the other two sessions we have scheduled that will capture our child’s first year of life.
