3 & 6 Month Sweetie {St Charles Baby Photographer}

This blog post and many others have a new home on the new site.  Click her to view it there instead: K Thaemert Photography | St Charles Baby Photographer

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…

3 Month Portraits by St Charles Baby Photographer

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)

Thanks for visiting the blog!

I am very excited to share this session with you.  I got to use one of my favorite backdrops and also one of my newer ones!  I just love how all of the photos turned out.  I’m sharing images from another baby’s first year plan participant.  Her big sister is a graduate of the Baby Steps plan.  I love seeing these little ones grow from newborn or 3 months of age through the first birthday.  The photos below are from her 6 month photo shoot.  She is showing off her newest skill of sitting on her own.  I love this age because we get to put babies on and in so many different props and posing boxes/baskets/buckets.

The beautiful tan/sage/pink background is a hand-painted drop which I’ve had for a number of years, but it’s not often requested.  I have to say that it’s easily one of my favorite formal backdrops.  I think it worked PERFECTLY with her pink tutu and head-bow.  The pearls are mine and added an extra special touch to some of the poses.

Now, that RED background is my new door.  You can see it a little better in Tommy’s Senior session post below.  I really intended to use it with teens and little boys, but within the first two weeks of having it here at the studio, I realized that it’s great for little girls too.  I think it’s perfect with my black and white damask hat box.  Don’t you?  As soon as I saw the outfit her mommy brought, the ideas started churning in my head and I fell in love with this new set.

Well, on to the photos.  That’s really why you, my wonderful blog readers are here anyway, right?  Leave me a comment and let me know that you were here.  🙂Baby Plan photos of 6 month little girl, St Charles baby photography

Glad you stopped by.  If you have a baby between the ages of newborn and 4 months (or if you are currently expecting a baby), give me a call to sign up for the Baby Steps Baby Plan.  You’ll be happy you did.  My favorite part of the plan is the 10×20 framed collage you get at the end of the year with one image from each session.  It’s neat to see how much the baby has changed during the first year!

Talk to you very soon.

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.

Growing Baby Newborn to 9 Months {Baby Plan Photographer, St. Charles, MO}

When asked if I ever photograph babies, I often reply with the words, “That’s almost all I do”.  The majority of my subjects are under 2-feet tall!  May I introduce a sweet little member of the Baby Steps, first year plan.  Her big sister is a Baby Steps graduate too, so I’ve enjoyed this family for a number of years.  🙂

I am sharing images that go back to the newborn session since the blog was not updated last year.

The newborn session was wonderful.  She was sleepy and calm!  Her parents were great to work with and so photogenic.

And here are a couple from the 3 month session.

At 6 months, she was really starting to show her sweet personality.  She was happy to sit in any bowl, bucket or basket as well as directly on the floor.  There were so many sweet smiles and faces in these images from which to pick.

And this leads us to the 9 month session.  Again, she was just so easy to photograph!  I love her smile and look how big she has gotten.  At 9 months, standing is the big milestone.  One of my favorite poses from her big sister’s 9 month session is one where she is standing at that same pink chair.

Meet the happiest little girl! {St Charles Baby Photographer}

The blog has moved to the main website.  Please view this post and many newer ones here: St Charles Baby Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

I get to photograph many babies throughout the year.  Some are happy, some are stoic, some are curious and this little girl was SO, SO very happy.  At her 9 month appointment, we laughed the entire time.  Her mouth was wide open in the biggest smile I’ve ever seen.  Usually I’m trying all my tricks to get wide smiles.  This time, I was trying to find ways to get her to close her mouth!  LOL

Here are a few from her 6 months session:

Can you tell we had a laughing good time at her baby plan portrait session?  I’m sure her family just adores every minute they spend playing with her!  I can’t wait for the 1 year appointment.  🙂

The baby plan is 3 or 4 appointments during baby’s first year.  Come to 3, 6, 9, 12 month sessions or just  3 times between 3 and 12 months as it best fits your schedule.  We’ll document your baby’s milestones and amazing growth through the 1st birthday.

Call today if you are expecting or have a new baby.  Visit the Baby Plan Information Page for all the specifics!

Happy 6 Month Baby Boy!! {St Charles Baby Photographer}

This blog has moved to the main website.  Please view it, and many more posts here: St Charles Baby Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

This little guy was SO happy.  Don’t I have the best job?  I love the appointments when we spend the entire time laughing and giggling.  Six to ten months is the BEST time to have a laugh-fest during the photo session.   Besides his general good disposition, he also LOVED his toes.  It was so cute watching him play with his feet at every opportunity.  LOL

You know, it’s the greatest compliment to receive referrals from clients.   It’s also humbling to have clients come back year after year.  I’ve enjoyed watching this family grow ever since big sister was a newborn.  I’m so thankful to be their family photographer!  I’m already looking forward to the 9 month session.  🙂
