Today I am sharing with you a very sweet little baby girl and her family. You’ll get to see her again since she is another baby on the Baby Steps, First Year plan. (Yes, pretty much all my babies are on the portrait plan. It’s a GREAT deal) First, is her 3 month photo session. In my opinion, that session is the toughest one of all the ages and stages. It really is rare to get smiles so I’m thrilled to have so many cute expressions from her. The other thing that makes it so tough is the fact that they no longer sleep curled up like a newborn but they cannot yet sit unassisted. Actually, it’s difficult for a 3 or 4 month baby to sit propped in a poser or basket!
So, here she is… showing off her strength. Look how well she holds up her head! Don’t you just love the purple and green together?
And, since I have frequently not kept up with the blog, I’ll share a few favorites from both the maternity and newborn photo shoots. I had a nice challenge photographing mom for the maternity since this is our second maternity session together. I wanted to give her unique poses yet make it familiar enough to coordinate with the first pregnancy. She’s such a beautiful mom and mom-to-be! Here’s a few of the proud dad too (who by the way is GREAT with the kids!)
I hear clients tell me all the time, “I wish I had gotten maternity portraits done”, or “I wish I had done this with the first pregnancy”. The thing is that you can never get those days back. You try to remember what it was like and how you looked. (Ok, some of the time, we try to forget), but for the most part, it is so important to have a memory of that special time. Look how quickly the days and months pass by. I’m preparing for that little girl’s 6 month session in the near future!
Call the studio today and schedule your baby’s appointment. Thanks for allowing ME to document those special milestones in your family’s lives. Time really does fly!
