Do you know what I love about six month old babies?
Just about everything!
For real, this is one of my favorite ages to work with. They are so engaged, so curious about their surroundings, and almost always ready to great me with a big ol' baby smile!
So today, I want to take a minute to talk about the awesomeness of this age as well as answer some of the most common questions I get about how to prepare and when to book.
How to Dress The Baby
When it comes to dressing your baby for their session I believe less is more. A diaper (so we can see all that glorious baby skin!) or plain white onsie are my favorites. Hats are also really cute! If you have a favorite outfit, bring that as well. There are no rules! What ever you love seeing your baby in is the perfect outfit!
When To Book
I call the mid-way through the first year the "Six Month Photo Session" but please know your baby doesn't have to be exactly six months old. I tell my clients to book when your baby can sit on his/her own but is not yet crawling. For most babies this is between 5 and 8 months.
What To Expect
Out of all my photo sessions, the six month session tend to be the quickest. Babies this age are so fun and engaged. They come in all smiles! They clap along when I sing. They laugh and giggle. We have a blast! But they also get tired pretty fast! I keep this in mind when working with them and do my best to be efficient with our time! My goal is to keep your baby (and you) happy and engaged for the entire shoot!
