How often and when should I get my child’s portraits taken? Well…if you ask me I think you should get them taken all the time 🙂 In all seriousness it is really up to you. A child has the most significant and fastest changes during the first year of their lives. That is why it is recommended to have several portrait sessions done during this period of time. The most common milestones to have pictures taken are newborn (1 month or younger), 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 1 year old. However, these are just guidelines.
It is important to know what to expect from your little one at each of these milestones. At 8 weeks your newborn is filling out and most likely won’t stay swaddled in a tight ball snoozing. At 3 months you can’t expect your child to sit up on their own for pictures. Below are some images to highlight each milestone listed above to give you an idea of the type of session you are likely to experience for each.
