Wyatt’s 6 Month Photoshoot | Temecula Baby Photographer

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!

Kiara’s 8 month photos | Murrieta Baby Photographer

Kiara was such a perfect little baby model! Don’t let her big brown eyes and long hair fool you, she was still so teeny. 8 month olds are still in the perfect window for a “sitter session”, which typically falls between 6-9 months old when babies are able to sit on their own and extra expressive.

Luna’s Sitter Session | Menifee Baby Photographer

Sitter sessions are always some of my favorite photos to capture! What is a sitter session? It’s just as it sounds — a photoshoot to celebrate the milestone of babies learning to sit on their own! This typically takes place between 6-9 months. Luna was 8 months old at the time of her session and so much fun. She was sooooo wiggly and expressive!

Wyatt’s 3 month photoshoot | Menifee Baby Photographer

Wyatt was SO expressive for his photos — what a cutie! 5 weeks-5 months tends to be more tricky when it comes to photographing babies, as they tend to wear out a bit faster. Wyatt turned 3 months old on the day of his session and he came in like a little firework, full of expression until he burned out. 😉 He was such a good sport for his photos. I’m so excited that he’s on my 3 month milestone plan!
