What's better than photographing a roly-poly baby than a roly-poly baby with her favorite toys?
Baby Evie's mother has the most adorable collection of Disney princess dolls. Word on the street is that Evie just loves these dolls and she can't help but smile when around them. Why not use a family of princesses for your own princess?
Perhaps there is a special lovey your child carries or maybe is wearing those favorite frog boots for the 100th day in a row. Little props like these define who they are and what they love. Try capturing this adorable time of the life in a picture.
Even something as simple as a headband can turn an ordinary moment into a sweet tender memory.
And of course nothing compares to an heirloom baptismal gown. These gowns especially tie generations to each other.
Tiny details, pin tucks and delicate lace are stitched into the garment. I went to school for fashion design back in the day. These beautiful details are full of hard work and I love to photograph them. While the garment will see the end of it's day, the pictures will live on for Evie to show her grandchildren.
Each stage of life offers unique challenges and joys. Sometimes props are a clever way to accentuate the cuteness and freeze for a moment the joys of childhood. This is why I love doing first year sessions. Evie is one of my first year clients and I get to see her every three months. I just love seeing them grow!
Does your little one have a favorite lovey?
