A Baby's First Year - Video Review

Extra, Extra, Read All About It! 

Or in this case, watch the video. ;)

Some great clients of ours recently sat down with us and told us about their experience first hand working with us for their little boy's whole first year of photos. From maternity to newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year Smash & Splash first birthday celebration, Kristi documented all these important milestones in Declan's life. 

It's amazing to see how much a baby changes in their first year of life. We hear so often by the end of the first year - that doesn't even look like the same baby!

Babies go from being immobile to tummy time to sitting up on their own, standing and walking all in just their first year! And in Declan's case, he was walking by 8 months so we had extra time to capture that amazing feat so early in his life.

So take a look below at working with Kristi Williams Photography - a Baby's First Year!

Isadora, 9 months

Isadora (Isa for short) was a very happy baby during her 9 month session at Fox Run Regional Park in Black Forest. She has such cute smiles! We did a lot of the photos near wildflowers and she was very interested in those. In a lot of the photos she's holding them in her hands even when she's looking at the camera. LOL! We had to do some crawling photos since that's where she is in her life right now. And she had only been crawling for a week but was already so, so fast!

Towards the end of her session, we put her in one of my lavender rompers, headbands and fairy wings on her for fun. And it worked so well! She looks like a little baby fairy surrounded by flowers! :)

I can't wait to see her again for her 1 year cake smash!

Lucy, 3 month baby

I love photographing baby milestone sessions! (See Watch Me Grow) I usually recommend taking them a few times in their first year like 3-4 months (tummy time), 6-7 months (sitting up), 9 months (standing) and then 1st Birthday (cake smash and bubble bath!). Lucy's mom was right on with setting up Lucy's milestone session at 3.5 months old. She can do tummy time (for a couple of minutes!). And she sucks on her hands, plays with her tongue and she just discovered her feet! And my favorite thing about the first year milestone sessions is seeing their cute little personalities emerge! Lucy is no exception. She smiles and laughs (especially when her dad says monkeymonkeymonkey over and over again!) and she has the deepest blue eyes I've seen on a 3 month old. It makes the serious photos just gorgeous!

I can wait to see this cutie in another couple of months for her next milestone session and see all her new changes!
