Baby Photographer Rochester NY | There’s an old saying, “The days are long, but the years are short.” In my 11 years of parenting I’ve found this to be painfully true. I think the longest and fastest year though is the first year. So much change happens in baby’s first year. They start off this tiny, immobile little person who is completely dependent on you for everything, to a walking, talking little trouble maker in just 12 months! There are so many huge milestones. Holding their head up during tummy time, rolling over, sitting up, crawling, standing, holding their own bottle, walking, and feeding themselves! It’s a bit of a whirlwind. I often look back at photos from when my boys were younger and wonder where the time goes. No year has seemed to bring quite as much change as that first one though!
This is why I love the Baby’s First Year package. I plan these sessions around some of the major milestones of that first year so that each session captures baby at a brand new stage of development. We start with the newborn session of course. The next major milestone is tummy time. The tummy time session is around 4 months when baby can push up and look at the camera. The next big one is sitting! The sitter session is around 8 months and may be my favorite. I have all sorts of things for babies to sit in or on. Then we end the year with a cake. I try to keep styling similar for all four sessions so the changes baby makes are the first thing you notice.
My Baby’s First Year babies are often my favorites. I get to spend so much time seeing them grow that the end of the year is so exciting, but also a little bittersweet. Check out one of my favorite babies from the last year. It’s amazing how so much change happens while so much stays the same.
