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)

9 Months and Such a joy! {St Charles Baby Photographer}

This blog has relocated to the new studio website.  Please read this post and many newer ones here: St Charles Baby Photographer | K Thaemert Photography

Some babies are just happy.  This baby boy is one of those “just happy” little guys.  He loves to interact and smile.  You might remember his 6 month portrait session!  This one was just as enjoyable.

His mom always finds the cutest clothes.  She’s especially good at finding adorable shoes and hats.  It was a bare-feet kind of session so you won’t get to see any new shoes in this post, but fear not!  You get to see an adorable little plaid hat.

First, I’d like to share the 10×20 digital collage I created from three of my favorite poses.  All Collages are mounted and sit on a small easel or easily be put into a frame.  I usually frame portraits for my clients, but some choose to do it on their own or go to a local framer.

I just love the brown and blue tones in this first set!

This little rocking chair has served me well for many years.  He really liked sitting in it (not all babies like the unsteady rocking).   Really, what he wanted most was to get OUT of the chair and explore.  Still, I’m fast and was able to not only get a few great shots, but surprisingly, I was able to get a good one of him with Curious George.  That monkey, by the way, has been photographed many times in our studio.  Big sister brought him along too!

He loved my plush, blue boy’s chair too.  He must have felt big and important in it because he looked so proud of himself.  I love to have them peek over the back of the chair too.  He didn’t mind sitting on his knees and really enjoyed our game of peek-a-boo.

In this last pose, mom is just outside of the frame (or maybe her hand even made it in the shot and I edited it out).  He was very sturdy on the apple crate, but I didn’t want to take any chances.  Don’t you just love his chunky little baby feet?  I have the best job in the world!  I enjoy my time with these little ones so much.  Thank God for the invention of the camera.  Without it, all those little things (like cute little feet and goofy smiles) would soon be forgotten.  It’s awesome that I get to help preserve those special little details for so many families.

He’s a Baby Steps portrait plan participant so you’ll see him again in a few months.  I’m sure his parents are already planning his first birthday party.

If you are interested in the Baby Steps baby plan, take a look at this page.  Let me know you know you found it from baby’s Jame’s blog entry and I’ll have a special price for you!

Thanks for visiting.  Happy Wednesday!

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.  🙂
