My favorites are newborn, 6-8 months and 1 year. They grow out of the newborn baby phase so quickly, so make sure to come in at 2-4 weeks. Then there’s the 6-8 month stage, they can hold their head up, smile, sit up on their own and they can’t walk away yet. Six to eight months is also a precious time that you won’t want to miss. The 1 year portrait is such a milestone, you’ll want to hire a professional for that age too. Byerly’s even gives the 1 year old a free cake. These cakes are the perfect size to bring tot the studio for the cake smashing portrait at the end of the session. You’ll want these stages to be captured forever in portraits. Babies really do grow up so fast!!!
