5 Precious Documentary Photo Session Ideas with Your Baby in Their First Year
Before I start this post, I just want to tell you how much I can’t even with the cute little face right below this text! And people wonder why I have baby fever? He’s reason #1.
Okay, back to the reason YOU are here! The first year with your baby is one of the most eventful for many reasons, one of which being all of the milestones you and your little one experience. This is a crazy special time in your life and there are so many important moments to be documented! I’ve picked 5 of my favorites for you to consider.
A baby’s first year is full of discovery: they are experiencing their world for the first time. These moments are perfect to capture. You can preserve in time the moment where your babe tries their favorite (or not-so-favorite) food for the first time, or the first time they experience rain. Their innocence and wonder is special and fleeting, so why not save that moment?
Babies + baths = the perfect combination. Whether it be a sink bath (love those, by the way), or a bath filled with toys and bubbles, both are perfectly adorable times to capture during a documentary photography session. My favorite photos are those of babies splashing and playing; there is nothing better than that pure joy.
Do you have a sibling of your own with a baby of similar age to your’s? Or maybe a best friend? Capture them interacting together! These photos will be fun to look back on in the future as your children grow. Who knows, maybe they’ll be best friends their senior year of high school and you have a photo of when their friendship first began!
Bedtime typically involves routine, and that routine typically involves sweet and tender moments with your babe. Imagine having photos of you or your partner rocking your little one to sleep, singing softly to them to calm them down, their snuggled up little body curled into you. Amazing, right? How can you not smile at the thought of preserving that time forever?
If your little one goes to daycare, you already know that it is a big part of their everyday life. So let’s document that! Capture the morning routine of packing up, getting yourself and baby ready, and the journey to wherever your daycare site may be. By documenting this, you can preserve the normal routines that made up your daily life when your sweet babe was little. We can even document picking baby up and the wonderful emotions of reuniting once again.
There you have it! Are you ready to document the best year with your new babe? Request a session with me here!
