Preserve The Memories of Your Baby’s Biggest Milestones

It’s hard to imagine just how quickly that first year will fly by. That tiny infant who once fit so snuggly in your arms will no longer be so little. Your baby's first year is full of rapid changes that mark the milestones in his or her growth. From the time she lifts her head, sits up alone, takes those first tentative steps and mutters those precious first words - they are all part of your child’s story.

These moments will become some of the greatest moments in parenthood. They’re milestones that deserve to be beautifully captured through professional photos.


How old should my baby be for an in-studio Sitter or First Year Session?

Every baby will reach developmental milestones, like sitting up or standing, at their own pace.  Typically, babies sit up without support between the ages of 6 and 9 months. It’s best to reserve your session around 5-6 months and then schedule your session once your baby begins showing signs of sitting up.

We suggest that First Year Sessions are scheduled for the 12th month, as this is a milestone in and of itself! We also offer cake smash sessions!

How should I dress my baby?

Lori is happy to help you with selecting clothing for your baby’s session. We love the focus to be on baby, so we tend to prefer simple & subtle. If you’d like to have your baby photographed in something special, please let us know!

Can siblings join in on Sitter or First Year Sessions?

Absolutely! Siblings and parents are always welcome to join in on baby sessions. These are important milestones to document for the whole family!

When should I book my sitter session or first year session?

To give each family the best service possible, Solon Baby Photographer Lori Mason books a limited number of portrait sessions per month. It is recommended that clients book Children & Family Sessions 4-6 weeks in advance and Newborn Sessions at least 8 weeks in advance to ensure availability of preferred dates. Lori will make every effort to accommodate late bookings whenever her schedule permits.



Together, we’ll plan out your perfect session, select an ideal location, discuss clothing recommendations, and more.
