6 Months and Sitting Pretty in Pink {St Charles Baby Photographer}

This blog has a new home on the studio website.  Please view this post and many more at: St Charles Baby Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

She’s sitting pretty in pink, silver, orange and even in the natural tones.  LOL

Here’s a little girl from a family I’ve been photographing for the past few years.  Her big brother has graced the blog a few times and so has she, already!  I must say it again, but I absolutely love working with 6 month old babies.  The milestone of being able to sit is so monumental.  It makes a happy baby even happier (if that’s possible).  From this little one, I captured sweet smiles, huge smiles, little grins and pretty much everything in-between.

I just adore the silver dress she’s wearing in this first pose.  It’s so non-traditional and very beautiful all at once.  I believe she is enamored with my youngest daughter who loves to help in the studio.  Those of you who have met her will, no doubt, agree that she’s a very valuable asset to me during 6 and 9 month portrait sessions!  She is “baby crazy” as we tell her.  It’s a good thing too.  I’m positive that the big huge grin in the second image is compliments of something fun and silly.  She does silly things that only a 9-year old can do!

We really decked her out for this shot.  What more can a girl want than beads, flower headbands, fur and a very cute pink and white striped hat box?

This pose is my typical bowl shot.  We use it for the end-of-the-year collage in the baby plan.    The collage has one image from each session.  This 6-month pose in the bowl is one we often use for that series of photos.

As you can see, it was a VERY fun photo session.  I think her mommy is already planning the next one (9 months).

Our baby plan is a 3-session plan which is typically between 3 months and 1 year of age.  However, many of our clients like to come in for an optional 4th session.  A 4-session baby plan is photographed at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months old.  Each one marks a new milestone.  At 3 months, a baby is just holding up his or her head, at 6 months a baby learns to sit, at 9 months standing while holding on something is a great accomplishment and 12 months marks one year!  Either way you do it, the Baby Steps plan is a great way to document your baby’s growth during the first year.   I know how fast kids grow!  Trust me.  Don’t miss documenting this time in your baby’s life.

Come back soon.  I have much more to share.
