The ultimate milestone is when your tiny teeny baby is suddenly standing tall. Perhaps she’s managed to grasp onto something and stand up. Maybe she’s full on walking and will enjoy exploring my studio with all my lovely baby-friendly toys.
Either way this is a really exciting age to capture as you can see your little one become a little boy or girl right in front of your eyes! Their personalities are well and truly starting to come out now and you can capture some gorgeous shots.
As you know by now, babies change so quickly – and as I hope is becoming clear, there is no right or ‘best’ age for baby photography really. It’s lovely however, to mark babies’ changing featured with a milestone photoshoot so you don’t forget this moment.
Often parents tie in a ‘toddling’ photoshoot with their child’s first birthday. We can even get a cake for the occasion and let them loose with that for a bit of fun towards the end of the photoshoot.
Most babies will have tried solids by now and so being allowed to explore and grab at yummy cake makes for a memorable and fun experience. (And don’t worry about the mess: I’ll take care of all of that!)
