Why Milestone Sessions Matter | Erin Fox Famillies

September 16, 2020


One of my fondest memories as a kid was pulling out photo boxes from our living room built-ins and flipping through hundreds of printed memories.

Baby photos. Graduation photos. My parent’s wedding photos. Portraits of my grandparents. You name it, it was there.

You may not realize this now, but the photos you take and print of your family now will be your biggest treasure years from now. This is why children’s milestone sessions are so important, for you and your future self.

Why Milestone Sessions Matter

With every stage, your baby is discovering something new, making new expressions, and growing so quickly. And right before your eyes (sometimes what feels like overnight) they reach another major milestone moment. Like walking, eating solids, or baby teeth coming in.

Milestone sessions allow us to remember those sweet little nuances of every stage for the rest of time. These sessions are meant for babies and children of any age, not just 0-12 months. These sessions are so important and here’s why:

The Details

Every tiny detail, from your kiddos cute, curly hair, to their first loose tooth is captured. Because years and years from now, these are the details you’ll hold onto when your little one is not so little anymore.

Often times, I’ll do a baby’s first year collection – which can consist of newborn, 3mo, 6mo, 9mo, and 1yo. You may not notice big changes in your little one every day, until you’re holding two photos side by side and realize just how much they’ve grown.

Everything from their tiny hands and feet, to their fun and quirky personalities can be captured.

Your Legacy

Your children will love looking back at how they’ve changed over the years. Spread your photos all around the house, keep albums on your coffee table, and show off your child’s proudest moments around your home. Your kids will feel so special having their photos spread throughout your home and it will remind you every day just how amazing they are.

Capturing every stage of your children’s life adds to a beautiful collection of your family’s legacy that will one day be passed down from generation to generation.
