Don’t Miss These Three Portrait Sessions In Your Baby’s First Year
Sometimes you only know what you’ve missed once it’s too late. Life with a new baby can be a blur, especially if it’s your first. You are likely spending a lot of time thinking about how much your baby is sleeping, what they are eating, and whether you’ll ever have a clean house again. You are probably not thinking about the photographs you’d like to have 5, 10, or 20 years from now. Don’t wait until it’s too late to capture these special moments with your new baby. Here are three portrait sessions you won’t want to miss in your baby’s first year.
1. The newborn session, within the first two weeks
2. The six-month milestone session
3. The 1st birthday session
Make Sure You Book a Newborn Session Within the First Two Weeks
As a family photographer, I strive to capture the emotions and events that shape families’ lives. Newborns are one of the most cherished and fleeting milestones in a family’s journey. By providing parents with photos of their newborn’s arrival, I am able to capture a momentous event in their lives and provide them with a keepsake to remember this moment for years to come.
I am always in awe of the incredible feat that is childbirth. Just weeks ago, this little human was curled up inside their mother’s womb and now they are here in the world. It is amazing to think about how much they have grown and changed in such a short amount of time. I love to capture newborns in all their curled-up glory as it is a beautiful way to document the start of their life.
Don’t Skip the Six-month or Sitter Session
Is your baby between six and nine months old? If so, then you’re in luck! This is the perfect age for a sitter session, and I’m here to tell you why.
Your baby has just learned to sit up unaided, and is well on their way to becoming a proper little person. They’ve developed their own personality by now – whether it be cheeky, shy, funny, or mischievous – and you’re getting glimpses of the person they will become. This is a really fun time for a photoshoot, because your baby will be smiling and laughing and will no doubt enjoy showing off their latest tricks in front of the camera.
It’s also a big milestone in your baby’s development, and before you know it they will have mastered crawling and won’t sit still long enough for you to grab your camera and capture that incredible smile. This age is the perfect time for photographs because your little one will sit happily for the prefect photo. If you wait until they begin to crawl, they will get frustrated sitting still and want to crawl off and explore. So don’t wait – capture this precious moment in time with a sitter session!
Come Back For Their First Birthday Session
Parenting is one wild ride. You go from changing diapers to clapping and cheering as they take their first steps. It’s a milestone for them and for you. That’s why, around your baby’s first birthday, I like to welcome my newborn clients back. We’ll capture toothy grins, your baby’s newfound skills (like standing, cruising, or walking), and all the personality and curiosity of your one-year-old.
