I am very excited to share this session with you. I got to use one of my favorite backdrops and also one of my newer ones! I just love how all of the photos turned out. I’m sharing images from another baby’s first-year plan participant. Her big sister is a graduate of the Baby Steps plan. I love seeing these little ones grow from newborn or 3 months of age through the first birthday. The photos below are from her 6-month photoshoot. She is showing off her newest skill of sitting on her own. I love this age because we get to put babies on and in so many different props and posing boxes/baskets/buckets.
The beautiful tan/sage/pink background is a hand-painted drop that I’ve had for a number of years, but it’s not often requested. I have to say that it’s easily one of my favorite formal backdrops. I think it worked PERFECTLY with her pink tutu and head-bow. The pearls are mine and added an extra special touch to some of the poses.
Now, that RED background is my new door. You can see it a little better in Tommy’s Senior session post below. I really intended to use it with teens and little boys, but within the first two weeks of having it here at the studio, I realized that it’s great for little girls too. I think it’s perfect with my black and white damask hatbox. Don’t you? As soon as I saw the outfit her mommy brought, the ideas started churning in my head and I fell in love with this new set.
Well, on to the photos. That’s really why you, my wonderful blog readers are here anyway, right? Leave me a comment and let me know that you were here. 🙂
Glad you stopped by. If you have a baby between the ages of newborn and 4 months (or if you are currently expecting a baby), give me a call to sign up for the Baby Steps Baby Plan. You’ll be happy you did. My favorite part of the plan is the 10×20 framed collage you get at the end of the year with one image from each session. It’s neat to see how much the baby has changed during the first year!
Talk to you very soon.
