I think a portrait session is a fantastic way to celebrate a birthday or a milestone! Parents often have portraits made when their babies are small, especially during the first year, and then custom photography sessions become fewer and fewer. When kids get older, school portraits end up being the photos that follow a child through the next several years. But school photos don’t typically capture a child’s true personality.  Parents are lucky if their child smiled, had their hair straight, and kept their clothes neat when they sit for the photographer for 1.2 minutes before they move on to the next child. With a custom portrait session, you’ll have more time for their natural smiles and personality to shine through. Plus, you’re welcome to include things they love – books, sports, and more. Email me about a milestone mini session for your child … and take a peek at Ava’s below!

I see Miss Ava regularly for our annual Santa Mini Sessions, but this time she had a session all to her self. This sweet girl turned 8 years old just four days after our studio session! She had the best smile and was so much fun to photograph. ♥

    This milestone was the perfect opportunity for a portrait session! She was so good in front of the camera! Every kid should have a kids milestones mini session!

  2. She is such a natural and a dream to photograph I am sure! Love Ava’s smile and her personality really shines through these pictures. Future model in the making :) 

  3. I couldn’t agree more!  Milestone photo sessions are not only a great way to capture special times in the child’s life but also a great way to boost their self esteem and give them so much confidence.  This young lady is a great example of that!  What an amazing smile and huge personality she has!  She is lucky to have you as her Atlanta Child Photographer.

  4. This milestone mini session is adorable! Ava is so cute and shows a lot of personality in her photos. And that hat is the perfect accessory for the shoot! Love these photos!
