Nearing six months you’ll definitely not want to miss all that your infant is able to do right now. Showing off his new found skills and doing them repeatedly as you shoot away! Admittedly I have a million and one images taken on my phone over these five months of my three boys but once a month I plan a mini styled session with the baby to really home in on the changes and hope to capture him in his everyday environment with shots that are also wall-display worthy!

Chances are you’re in a pretty steady routine with your four month old and apart from perhaps a sneaky sleep regression, you’re feeling a little more human again as the parent! However, as we ease into our routine, I’ve realized it becomes more of a challenge to notice the subtle developments that take place from month to month and sometimes from day to day. Setting time aside to intentionally photograph these moments has become a way I can savor these changes and I look forward to looking over the first year of our little one’s life. Continue reading
Oh three months, where have you gone?!
What seems like over-night, my tiny nugget has doubled his weight and somehow it happened right in front of my eyes! Perhaps a little sad to say goodbye to any resemblance of a newborn, this is a stage that in fact I have been looking forward to after having enjoyed watching our older sons grow. By three months, so much of their personality shines through. Quirky smiles, gurgles and hands-in-mouth mark this milestone! Continue reading
If you have ever done a search for tips on how to photograph a two month old, you have probably come up empty! Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be too much inspiration out there for this age. They are definitely out of the sleepy newborn stage, yet unable to sit, tummy time is a short lived affair and they will most definitely not be happy being squeezed up into different positions. So you’re pretty much left with laid-on-back with arms and legs rigorously moving at the speed of light! Not incredibly flattering if truth be told. On the plus side, they are not quite at the three month (cute) blob stage ;-)
Okay, okay Dr Skeptismo has left the building! I’d like to offer some starting tips that will help you creatively photograph your two month old. Continue reading
As I prepared for our third child’s arrival, I never questioned if I’d love him as much as my other two. But, I did wonder with him being the third, if I’d ever have those overwhelmingly beautiful moments that I experienced with my first. Especially seeing as the novelty of pregnancy was long gone! (Been there, done that, got the t-shirt!) Continue reading
It’s taken a few weeks for me to put together some more photos to welcome our third boy but it turns out that little Mattheus didn’t read the manual on ‘Newborn Photography‘ and out of all the hours he sleeps, infront of the camera is not one of them :-) More cuddle time for me! Infact it has become quite the joke around our house; nothing and I mean nothing will wake him at times! Though as soon as I set up to photograph him he’ll promptly wake! Continue reading
