Have you ever said "I wish I hadn't photographed my child at that stage?"
I'm going to guess that the answer is "Of course not!"
As a St Louis portrait photographer, people always ask me when they should have their children photographed. My answer will always be "Now, while you're thinking about it."
As we move forward, we can make a plan to capture the upcoming stages and milestones at the pace you choose. Don't let the overwhelming details stand in your way when it comes to professionally photographing your family.
Start with where you are now. Enlist help, and create a plan with a professional you trust who can be your family's photographer. Here are the recommendations I give my clients.
STAGE ONE • BABYHOOD
6 to 8 months
1 year - Milestone Portrait
STAGE TWO • THE TODDLER
3 years - Key Milestone Portrait
STAGE THREE • CHILDHOOD
5 years - Milestone Portrait
STAGE FOUR • YOUTH
10 years - Milestone Portrait
STAGE FIVE • YOUNG ADULT
18 years - Milestone Portrait
