It’s no surprise that your baby will grow and change at an amazing rate in their first year of life. They go from sleepy, tiny little newborns to walking and talking (or at least almost walking & talking) in ONE year! Because of this, and all of the cuteness that comes along with it, it is so important to take lots of photos in videos of this incredible time of their (and your) lives. I’ve put together an outline with tips for each different milestone that you’ll want to document while photographing your baby’s first year. Even better, you can hire a photographer like myself to do it for you!
Photographing the newborn stage is all about capturing their tiny details & sleepy yawns. I generally take newborn photos around 2-3 weeks old, and often babies are asleep for much of the session. Here are some things I like to keep in mind when photographing a newborn baby:
At the 3-months old, your baby will have longer periods awake and will show more engagement and personality! Babes at this stage can still be quite sleepy, but we’ll have more chances of catching big grins and lots of eye contact.
Babies start to really transform around six months of age. They are much more interactive, and will start being able to sit on their own and play with toys. This age is so wonderful to photograph!
As baby gets closer to their first birthday, they are starting to become mobile! Many will be starting to crawl at this age and possibly pulling to stand.
The big first birthday is such an exciting time! Celebrating their first trip around the sun absolutely deserves a photo session whether it’s at home, in the studio, or outdoors.
No matter the age, it’s always my honor to photograph your babies! If you’re interested in working together and want me to capture any or all of these important milestones, you can book a single session or a Baby’s First Year package.
