I just adore this little sweetie.  My youngest daughter calls her “Ladybug”.  Well, Ladybug is just about the happiest little baby I’ve ever met.  She gave me smiles, smirks, silly faces, serious looks and pretty much everything in-between.  These photos are from the first two of four sessions as part of the Baby Steps, Baby’s first year plan.  Her color “theme” is bright colors so the collage photo for 3 months features a bright pink flower and a bright orange one in the 6 month pose.

So, first I’ll share a few of my favorites from the 6 month portrait session.  I just love the hot pink beads with her bright flower headband!  Nothing cuter that a little baby bootie, huh?  That hat box belongs to the client’s family (I need one of those…  I should probably get one before they are gone.)  LOL  That’s her pig and we thought it was SO cute when she was playing with it and the dress-up pearls.  It was such a fun session!!  Oh, and mom kept with the silver theme with another beautiful dress.  I love it!

And here are a few from her 3 month photo shoot.  Don’t you love her silver dress?  It’s so nontraditional and absolutely adorable!  I wanted a pose where the dress was completely visible.  The last one was the perfect way to show it off and show her sweet smile!  The 3 month photo session is often the toughest one for smiles and keeping baby’s attention.  Thankfully, this was a very enjoyable session!  Here she is…

Most baby plan participants select a 4-session plan.  That means that I photograph four times between 3 months and 1 year.  The 3 month milestone is when baby can hold her head high when resting on an incline or a parent’s shoulder.  The 6 month milestone is when she can sit unassisted.  Although, that white bowl will help an unsteady baby sit a little better than flat on the ground.  Later on, at the 9 month session we celebrate standing while holding on, and at the 12 month we celebrate the first birthday!  (Hopefully not walking!  LOL)
