For my daughter Odette’s 6 month portrait session we waited a few weeks until she was able to sit up on her own. I like trying to do first year photos every 3 months and try to get the milestones of tummy time, sitting up, standing holding on, and standing alone. So sometimes that means doing them a bit before or after the 3, 6, 9, and 12 month dates. Once again for Odette’s portraits I kept it simple with props using her toys and blankets. I love all the fun and silly expressions and the clapping!
