We did my daughter Odette’s 9 month portrait session when she was able to stand holding on. Kept the props simple and focused on getting tons of cute faces!
Calvin wasn’t feeling his 4 Year Portrait Session so we started with a little reading session to warm up. Then he showed me a bunch of his pose ideas and after some fun and playing around he was ready to give some smiles! Even though it took some time the results were sweet. Calvin’s personality came through and that really is the best.
For my daughter Odette’s 6 month portrait session we waited a few weeks until she was able to sit up on her own. I like trying to do first year photos every 3 months and try to get the milestones of tummy time, sitting up, standing holding on, and standing alone. So sometimes that means doing them a bit before or after the 3, 6, 9, and 12 month dates. Once again for Odette’s portraits I kept it simple with props using her toys and blankets. I love all the fun and silly expressions and the clapping!
