Sitting Milestone Photo Session in Oconee County, GA

Yesterday, this little beauty came in for her sitting milestone photo session here in Oconee County. She just turned eight months and is full of personality. Such a happy baby with the most adorable expressions. Look at those long eyelashes, big eyes, beautiful hair, baby toes and two front teeth! I could not get enough of her!

Her mom bought this outfit before her daughter was even born in Charleston. It is so beautiful and so fitting for a Southern lil’ lady. The detailing is exquisite. So pretty. Love the white, cream and pastel pink color palette. Works wonderfully for baby portraits, especially on a bed with white linens. Keeps the focus on the  most important subject – this adorable eight month old baby girl! Great example of what to wear for a baby’s sitting milestone photo session.

For milestone portrait sessions, I recommend scheduling your baby’s portraits to take place once they have met a particular milestone instead of a certain age. All babies hit their milestones at different times. It is completely normal. For example, for the sitting milestone, most people think that they must schedule their session for when their baby is six months old. Yes, some babies are sitting up at six months, but many are much later or a bit earlier than that. It is more important to capture the milestone than the exact age in my opinion. Also, you will want your baby to be able to sit for longer than a second. The more stable they are able to sit on their own, the better. Safety first!
