Sitting Up Milestone – Baby’s First Year


September 19, 2022

It seems to happen so quickly – the sitting up milestone! You blinked from those early days when you brought your newborn home from the hospital and we did your baby’s newborn pictures. And now…you’re sleeping better, your baby is smiling and interacting and they are taking in the world. Around six months, your baby will be sitting up and beyond adorable. The sitting up milestone is one of my favorites to capture for you and your family!

Milestone Sessions

Many babies will also being crawling around their sitting up milestone portrait session, so we want to make sure to photograph all that your little one is doing. If you’ve done your baby’s newborn session with us, we’ll make sure we use some of the same props to show how much your child has grown in just a short six months!

And you don’t want to forget all of the little details of your baby as they grow. In a newborn portrait session, I always make sure to capture their tiny hands and feet. Same for a sitting up milestone photography session! They are just too cute and they change so fast!

These sessions take place in our downtown Plymouth, Indiana photography studio which is approximately 30 minutes from most of the Michiana area. We love to focus on baby and keep things simple and classic, so they look amazing on your walls today, but also twenty years from now.

If you didn’t do a newborn session for your baby, it’s ok! We adore cute babies and can’t wait to meet yours and have them show off all of their personality so you can remember it for years to come. Reach out today to schedule a time to chat about your baby’s sitting up milestone session.


I love highlighting other photographer’s I know around the world and this week, it’s Jasmyn Sambac, a Scottsdale Maternity Photographer. She has a gorgeous maternity session on her blog this week.
