Babies are so happy, from showing off those gummy smiles to their new sitting skills. 

They think peek-a-boo is hilarious. 

And don't get me started on the wrist, ankle, and thigh rolls. 

It all Must be photographed!

The baby photos I deliver are soft, sweet, and timeless pieces of art that you will cherish for a lifetime.

baby portraits that
capture every milestone

Babies grow and change the fastest during their first year. We are talking rapid growth! I’m here to help capture each milestone, so that nothing is forgotten.

Every baby and family is different, however; I like to recommend after the maternity and newborn photos, a three-month-old session when they’ve put on a little chub (you won’t believe the change between this session and the newborn session!), followed by a Sitter Session at 6-9 months and, of course, that milestone 1-year Session.

when to schedule


At this point, baby will show a clear preference for you, even smiling at you in photos. Those gummy first smiles are gems! They've also put on some chub since their newborn session and are holding their head up when practicing tummy time.


Oh, the happy sitter. I'll admit it. This is my favorite session after the newborn. So independent while sitting on their own, yet not as mobile as that lighting fast 1-year-old. This is also a great session to capture that first tooth and baby's crawling skills.


Celebrate baby's first birthday with photos! This is a fast-paced session, especially compared to your newborn session, capturing your little one's personality. Baby is standing and walking and has many opinions on what they'd like to be doing!

"Ahhhh I'm in LOVE.

Katie you are incredible! The detail - the twinkle in her eyes, the sweet half smiles and knuckle dimples, cute little emerging baby teeth, rambunctious looks, chubby baby feet and soft leg rolls, the pudgy baby toes, the squishable cheeks and delicate baby hands - and how its all wrapped up to perfection in each photo...I just CANNOT deal with the sweetness.

If you ever need a baby photographer check out Arcadian Photography. Her talent and style are unmatched and I promise there will be ZERO regrets."


Katie's photos NEVER disappoint. Happy baby, sleepy baby, or even a cranky baby, she will get the shot or 20 ; ) that once you see, you won't be able to live without! I'm so thankful I found her and will continue to use her talents frequently.

Many of my sessions take place at my studio in Salem, but I also travel for newborn, baby, and family lifestyle photography sessions that take place in your home. 

How Often Should You Have Professional Photos Taken During Baby’s First Year?

The great thing about babies is that the magic doesn’t ever go away. Every month is going to bring a new milestone; a new piece of their personality emerges. But, when is the best time frame for portraits?
