Milestones … those important events that define development and growth … that is what our Baby Portrait Plan is all about!  Throughout baby’s first year, there are many milestones and accomplishments that lead up to baby’s first birthday.

Watching your baby grow and documenting these moments is such an important part of parenthood, but also childhood.  Imagine the day you sit down with your grown child and show them the portraits from their childhood, each milestone, first birthday, newborn portraits, and even your maternity portraits from the moment where your pregnancy began.  These memories are treasured, not just by you but they will be treasured by generations that follow.

Do you ever feel time flies by … suddenly you realize how quickly each day passes and before you know it, those busy and sleepy newborn days turn into a first birthday party!

We recently captured this Baby Portrait Planner’s 9 month milestone.  I adore capturing each and every milestone, as they are all unique … but there is something special about 9 months.  At 9 months, baby is well established in sitting skills, which lends the session to so many fun prop options.  In addition, baby’s personality has bloomed … lots of smiles, giggles and sweetness can be captured.  Most babies can stand holding onto something at this age, so it is the perfect time to capture the height of baby.  And wardrobe…don’t forget the wardrobe… at 9 months, there are soooooo many adorable baby clothing options and accessories.  Here, mom did an amazing job at selecting the perfect shade of blue to make baby’s blue eyes really “pop” in the portraits, and she coupled the blue with this pale yellow shade and the results were amazing!

This baby boy has grown up so fast!  It seems just like yesterday we met for his first Baby Portrait Plan photo shoot and now he’s turning one year old!  He is the sweetest, most cuddly baby boy …and his little smile will just melt your heart!

He wasn’t too sure about the furry stool at first, but he warmed up to the idea of it quickly…and take a peek at his tiny little toes…so adorable!  🙂

Fall is approaching and we are in that in-between season time where nature is gradually changing … fields are looking a little different, lighting is changing and session times are changing too.  It’s amazing that the same location can look so completely different (and unrecognizable) from one season to the next.  This is one thing I love about outdoor portraits…the backdrop of nature is ever changing.

We met this fun family at sunrise for a custom styled first birthday portrait session with cake smash.  Mom had her perfectly dressed in this navy lace jumper and ivory beads and headband.  The navy blue made her eye color “pop” and the ivory was the perfect accent.

Baby was full of smiles and had a blast during her portrait session … and then there was cake…it didn’t stand a chance, we will share her hands-on approach to birthday cake soon, for now here are some sweet smiles…



I can not begin to tell you how far behind on blogging I am…it’s sad, but true.  I met this sweet family at their newborn photo shoot for baby sister and now baby is turning * O N E * year old!  We just finished up her one year birthday photo shoot with cake smash and it was nothing short of amazing, as all of her portrait sessions have been from the very beginning.  This baby girl is always ready to smile for my camera and her family is the absolute sweetest!

Big brother is so handsome, shy and fun all at the same time…. he was a little apprehensive and camera shy when he entered the studio for the newborn portrait session…but we captured pure magic in front of the camera with his baby sister!  I love how his eyes light up when he smiles…isn’t he the cutest!
