Wyatt turned 6 months old! {Menifee Milestone Session}

I first got to meet Wyatt a few months ago when he was 3 months old, and I was excited to see how much he had grown in 3 short months! My milestone sessions are such a great way to document baby’s first year! It’s always such a treat for me to get to watch these precious babies grow. Wyatt was so smiley until he got worn out from all the hard work of being so photogenic. He let me know he was done with the camera in his face, haha! His session was packed with great portraits.

6 month development

What’s so special about 6 month milestones? So many things! I loved studying child development in college. According to WhatToExpect.Com, “at this age, babies typically sleep about 11 hours at night (many straight through) and take around two daily naps that add up to three to four hours.” This is also the time many babies start solids.

Sitter Sessions

The best part about 6 month milestones is that this is usually when babies start to sit up unsupported, which allows for a variety of fun photos! “Babies typically sit unsupported somewhere around the age of 6 to 6½ months old. But there’s a wide range of normal when it comes to when babies master the skill.” These extra special milestone sessions are called a “sitter session”. Sitter sessions usually take place around age 6 months, but sometimes up to 9 months old. Even if they need a little support, the cutest shots can happen!

The smiles, the (sometimes) wobbly seated shots, the sweet grabs for their feet, the chubby cheeks and chunky little hands and feet, and the little teeth poking through — it’s all so sweet to capture!

6 months old with the sweetest rolls!

My FAVORITE thing about 6 month old babies is how squishy and happy they are! B was both of those things and then some! His squishy cheeks and gummy grin are the cutest. He is on my 3 month milestone plan and I love getting to see him grow!

I loved getting to see how much this sweet boy has grown since his newborn session! Every session is so special to me, but milestone sessions are extra special as I get to watch these cuties grow!

M & M are the cutest little girls!

It’s always a blast to get to do baby AND child photos in one session! These two are TOO cute. Some adorable shots from little M’s 6 month photoshoot…

Baby K’s sleepy & smiley 6 month photos!

This little cutie showed up all smiles for her 6 month baby photos, and then suddenly decided she was done. After a quick cat nap she was ready to go again! It was fun to be able to pose her like a newborn while she slept. After she woke up, she rounded out the session with more adorable smiles.
