Philadelphia Photography Studio


Babies change so much over the course of their first year; from a tiny newborn to a teetering twelve month old, it’s hard to believe how little time actually passed! Milestone sessions are a perfect way to preserve their youngest days. Milestone sessions are named for the milestones that babies reach throughout their first year; tummy time at three months, sitting up at six months, crawling at nine months, and standing (or walking!) at one year.

Most parents choose “sitter sessions” (around six months) and first birthday sessions, but any age in between is welcome! Because I love photographing parents with their children, you are always welcome to step in the frame with your little one. Milestone sessions take place in my Philadelphia area photography studio and focus on what you love best about your little one: chubby feet, a toothless grin, soft peaks of hair falling across her forehead…

I provide all the blankets, diaper covers, wraps, and bonnets for milestone sessions; with hundreds of options for little ones, there’s no need to worry about what baby will wear for their session. Milestone sessions take place in my beautiful 1400sf natural-light commercial photography studio; it’s a temperature controlled, safe, clean space for babies to crawl around and explore.

Philadelphia Photography Studio

Milestone sessions take place at my natural light studio in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Due to the soft light and open, safe space (no rocks or grass to stick in their mouths!), it’s the perfect spot for a milestone session.

Before your session, I’ll send you a questionnaire to learn more about you, your family, and your vision for the session. We’ll discuss wardrobe so you’re perfected prepared for your session. If you’re interested in having your hair and makeup professionally done, I can also arrange that for you. One less thing to worry about!

On the day of the session, we’ll meet at my Philadelphia area photography studio or on-location and take some beautiful images! Approximately two weeks later, your gallery will be complete; you’ll be able to choose your images and artwork, and I’ll be there every step of the way to help you decide on the perfect photographs for your home.

Figuring out what to wear can be one of the most stressful parts of a photography session. Whether you’re looking for the perfect maternity dress or deciding what big brother will wear, browsing website after website to find the perfect outfit can be time consuming, challenging, and expensive.

Not only can you be sure that your images will be timeless and cohesive, you’ll also be wearing garments that photograph beautifully – and there’s no need to purchase anything!

from clients

  • “Veronika captured the true love between mother and baby so perfectly! The entire photo shoot experience was so much fun and not at all stressful. My daughter and I had a lovely time and the photos are amazing! I have never loved seeing myself in photos before, but these are actually something I will treasure forever! They are unique and special and I love the timeless, almost ethereal look. I’m so glad I decided to have these photos done by Veronika and I am already recommending her to family and friends!”

  • “The newborn session Veronika did for us turned out absolutely amazing. I wanted these photos to be timeless and of such good quality that we could hang them in our house for years. Veronika did not disappoint. The pictures are stunning and she was absolutely wonderful with our baby boy. I am so happy I chose her to capture this special time.”

  • “We just received our newborn photos back and I cannot say enough good things about them. They are so beautiful and I will cherish them forever. Everyone in our family and friends have been raving about how beautiful they are. Veronika was great to work with and she had our photos back very quickly. Her home and studio is beautiful and it was SO nice not having to worry about what to wear as you get access to her dress collection. Overall it was a wonderful experience and the photos are beyond stunning.”
