This family is on the blog again! It is hard for me to accept the fact that time goes by so quickly and this is the third out of for session for this little man’s first year! In fact, in a couple of weeks I will see him for his final session of his plan, the big OH-ONE! For this session, Mom really wanted to get outside and get some color in their photos! Being as their little man’s 8 months session was due shortly after I was due to have my little bub, I had to push them back towards the end of June a bit, but we lucked out with weather and their little man’s mood! He was so smiley, but gave me some serious looks as well. His session was bam bam bam and done, I think we were all happy with that
I wanted to have a more casual and candid session, and one ‘prop’ I thought to bring was Love You Forever book, b y Robert Munsch. (funny, Andrew’s middle name is Robert!)
I wanted a very light and airy wardrobe, so I pulled out our whites and light blues.
I wore a white dress, my oldest Son was in a white polo and khaki shorts, my Daughter in a light blue long-sleeved top and white shorts, and my baby boy was in a blue and white striped onesie.
I also wanted to get some images of just my baby and I, so we did a few with him wrapped up in a light green Moby-type wrap I actually borrowed for our session!
We also did some images of him nakie in his cloth diaper and an adorable vintage bonnet that fits him just right!
Usually, I do not recommend white outfits as sometimes it does not print too well, so I kind of giggled and crossed my fingers as I was pulling out white for our outfits!
Hopefully I will be back to share some images from our session, I’m waiting on pins and needles…..
1. You’ve hit a milestone, or rather, your child has
Every child has many milestones. A few of note that I personally believe should be captured on film, as a family: Maternity, newborn, sitting with smiles, 1st birthday. And occasionally some extra special sessions for Mother’s and Father’s day
2. Let’s face it, you need a new Facebook profile picture
Okay, maybe you don’t really need a new photo to use on social media, but how about the photos that are hanging on the wall? GASP, you have NO family photos on the wall?! Tsk tsk
3. It’s about time
If, perhaps, you have children who are a little bit older, and who aren’t changing so much month to month, it might be time to update family photos because of time. The days are long but the years are short.
4. Your family has been bugging you for new photos of little Johnny and Susan
Let’s face it, other people like seeing your face too Grandma and Grandpa once had little bitty babies who are now grown up with babies of their own, but you’ll always be their itty bitty.
5. Your kids want photos of dear old Mom and Dad
I’ve shared quite a few photos of my family, taken with either my point and shoot camera or my DSLR camera but do you know what’s missing…. ME! Unless I hire a professional or hand over one of my cameras and cross my fingers, I will never be in any photos. My Son asked me today why photos were so important…… I asked him if when he’s older if he would want any photos of him and I together.
