Lynchburg Baby Photographer | Eli's Milestone Session


Eli's milestone session

in the studio

I am so in love with this session!

This beautiful mama came to the studio early to have her makeup done by one of our exclusive makeup artists while her precious and happy baby boy sat contentedly in his carseat and observed all the happenings around him. Before she settled into the makeup chair, we went through a few different clothing options from the studio wardrobe and we narrowed down our options to the items you see below. Emily chose to style her own hair and all of the pieces of our preparation came together so beautifully!

Eli and Emily are both wearing clothing from the studio wardrobe, though Emily's last outfit (the jeans and sweater) is her own. Eli is even wearing a studio supplied diaper! It's true, I have a stash of blank-white diapers on hand in all sizes to help prevent those yellow/blue lines from showing up in your portraits. :)

Of course, you can't dress up emotion or love, so it's the genuine smiles, giggles and their glowing mother-son bond that really make these images some of my favorites!


Babies grow so fast, now is the best time to capture them as they are! If you're looking for a baby or family photographer, I would love to work with you to create images you will cherish for a lifetime. Contact me and if you'd like, we can set up a no-obligation studio consultation to answer any questions you may have.
