It’s always a joy to have this Baby’s First Year family in the studio!

Little E first came into my studio for photos when he has only 6 weeks old and has been a delight at his sessions every time. As a Baby’s First Year client he comes in for photos at 4 months old, 8 months old, and then again at 12 months old for a First Birthday Session. It’s always incredible to see how much a baby has changed since their last milestone session, check out his previous sessions here and here!

With Mr. E’s 8th month milestone session happening just before the holidays their session was also a perfect opportunity for some Christmas photos. Santa hats, buffalo plaid, and a Christmas story helped create an adorable and special memento to celebrate their first Christmas together.  Milestone sessions that fall around a holiday are made extra fun with seasonal props and accessories!

After capturing some special holiday photographs we turned to photographing the family together for some updated family photos. A lot has changed in 4 months and it’s always nice to capture changing looks, personalities, and interactions with baby in that first year. Mr. E had a great time flying through the air with mom and dad during his session!

I was so happy when my new baby and toddler backdrops arrived in time for Mr. E’s 8th month session as my new forest backdrop was perfect for this adorable little bear in the woods!

It’s been amazing watching this little guy grow over his first year and I’m excited to see him again soon at his First Birthday Session!
