How often do you need custom photography?
Ultimately, that is your choice. For more clients, they will choose to document more of their children as they are smaller and then milestones as they get older. Babies and toddlers change so rapidly that they need to be photographed more than the tween and teens. We suggest a newborn, 4 month, 7 month and one year session for their first year. Then we move on to 18 months and then yearly. Once they are seniors in high school, this is typically the last time you really get to have them photographed until their wedding. Make this one count!
You may decide on more per year to update the family portrait or some extra holiday portraits. Many photographers also capture special events and holidays as an in-between session. Keep in mind that these are the special portraits that will document their life and they will have as keepsakes forever.
