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.
