Milestone sessions are one of my favourites and are best suited when your little on his sitting well by themselves around 6-8 months. They are very interactive and it is a fast paced fun photo shoot.

Cake smashes are another popular session families like to book to celebrate their babies 1st birthday. These include pre-cake portrait session, cake photos and a tub/bubble session. Please click here for a few example pictures from a  cake smash.

Both sessions are included in the 1st year package.


I provide many baby outfits and props, so one less thing for you to worry about. My outfits are unique and perfect to make sure your baby stand out.

When do I book a baby milestone session?

This session is best scheduled when your baby can sit and crawl, but doesn’t yet walk. Every baby develops differently, so a milestone session is usually scheduled when a baby is around 6-10 months old. Baby sitter sessions are one of my favourites! Babies are very interactive at this age and are full of genuine expressions. They smile easily, they giggle and make these adorable faces. This is also part of the baby’s first year plan.

How long does the session take?

Sitter sessions are short portrait sessions. They usually last between 15 to 45 minutes. A 6-month old baby has a very short attention span. Your child is the star of the show and I will make it as short or long as they participate. It usually involves 2-3 setups and a few outfit changes.

What should I bring?

Make sure that you bring milk or snacks and a favourite toy for your baby. Offering your baby a bottle or breastfeeding your child would comfort and calm him should they be stressed in new environments. I have a lot of accessories and outfits for your sitter photo session, so you don’t need to bring anything in terms of clothing for this session.

How to prepare for a baby photo session? 

Make sure that your baby is well rested and fed. Please feed your baby right before leaving your home and ideally, I want your baby to nap before coming to my studio. This way I get a well rested and happy little model!

When should you book your sitter session?

 I recommend that you book your sitter photo session a few weeks in advance to make sure you get the day and the time of your choice. However, if you just realized that your baby is quite ready for a sitter session and you do not want to miss the opportunity to capture his or her cuteness, get in touch with me and I will do my best to find a spot in my schedule for you! Please email me or fill out the form below to find out availability for your sitter session.


What my amazing clients say
Tanja has been amazing to work with! She has done our little L’s photography sessions since he was 5 days old 💙. She is a creative and passionate photographer and we look forward to future milestone sessions with her.​
Loved the images she was able to capture of my little one! Great eye & creates a fun relaxed environment!
Tanja did a sitter session for our 10 month old daughter and she was SO lovely to work with! We brought some of our own outfits but she provided ones that were way cuter, and the props were adorable. She was super communicative via email before and after the session, and we got the edited pictures we chose right after requesting them! The pictures turned out amazing and it was a great experience start to finish. Highly recommend her!!
I cannot recommend Tanja at THaller Photography enough! We took our daughter for newborn photos at just 5 days old and Tanja was so welcoming, inviting, patient and calm. We never felt rushed if baby needed to nurse or was getting fussy, and felt totally comfortable in the space. Tanja's home studio is gorgeous - impeccably clean, warm and inviting. She was prepared for the shoot with various outfits, headbands, backdrops and props at the ready, and positioned and relaxed our baby in such a professional and caring way. We were SO impressed with our newborn photos that we recently returned for a sitting/milestone session. Tanja took all current safety precautions into practice. Even with Tanja wearing a face mask, my baby felt so comfortable and happy in her presence. Tanja was once again prepared with several different outfit options, and had various props to keep my mobile little ones attention and focus. Tanja has fast response time via email and we received our beautifully edited photos in a very timely manner. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending THaller Photography!
