There is simply no better job in the world! I love being a baby photographer. Getting to spend my days with bright eyed, smiley, adorable little humans is the BEST! When you have a new baby at home, you are constantly taking pictures. You don’t want to miss a single moment, right? But when are the best times to have your baby photographed by a professional photographer?
I recommend having portraits of your baby at 3 specific stages:
- Newborn – within the first 2 weeks of your baby’s life
- Sitting – As soon as your baby can sit unassisted is another great time (this phase is not age specific since babies reach this milestone at different times)
- One Year – This is a must! The first year of your baby’s life is the year they will change the most. Be sure to schedule professional pictures for them to document this stage.
The sitting phase is one of my all time favorite sessions to photograph. Your baby is really starting to show off their personality. He/She can be easily entertained and they are fascinated by games like peek-a-boo and “so big”.
Another way to spice up your baby’s session, is to have the whole family get in on the action. Spend some time playing and interacting with your little one. I love capturing these moments of your story.
