I love first birthday photos. These sessions make me happy – all the smiles, the clapping, the crawling around all over. I chase babies, mom leaves sweating because she’s getting baby and putting them back into place for me (if I move, by the time I get back into my spot the baby is gone and I’ve missed it all so mama often has to run around like a crazy lady for me lol). First birthday photos are so fun. It’s a milestone that should be captured and remembered. This age is joyous and just like when they are brand spankin new, you never get the nose scrunch and the little teeth growing in smiles again. This milestone is so fabulous so if your baby is coming up on their first birthday, be sure to capture this moment with first birthday photos that capture the innocence and this amazing moment in your child’s life!
I love how older babies love to sit on chairs. It’s like they feel like such big kids up there on the chair. I always get big smiles and hand claps when they are up there! Mom or dad stay so close and baby is never in danger of falling off because mom is less than an arms length away 🙂
She was so happy to be wearing these pearls. Adorable!
This one is my favourite. When the giggles get so big that the nose scrunches and the eyes close. It makes my heart so happy!
Here’s a fun game. Try taking your one year old baby and put them onto their back. See how long it takes them to flip over and crawl away. Yup. That is the amount of time that I had to capture this photo. It took a few tries, but with mama swinging baby for smiles then putting her down, and a quick trigger finger, we got this adorable image.
I always strive to get a “looking up” photo. It is just so sweet and innocent. There doesn’t have to be a smile, but those big eyes looking up at me say it all 🙂
