This 6 month baby was the star of this family of three family photo session! The last time I got to capture them was for their daughter’s in-home newborn session. So fun to catch up and to see all three of their beaming faces. 

This session was so special as this sweet 6 month baby old was full of big smiles. This stage is so fun to photograph as often times babies think everything is so magical, so they end up being very happy for the session. If you have a baby that’s approaching this age, consider reaching out to talk about how we can make your family photo session happen. 

I loved capturing all the interaction between this excitable 6 month baby and her doting parents. All three of them were simply over the moon for each other. From the dimple hands grabbing momma’s cheeks to mom and dad simply lighting up at their baby girl. It was such a wonderful thing to be a capture. 

Did you know that I offer a First-Year Collection Collective? This special package is designed specifically for parents who don’t want to forget a moment of their baby’s first year. I’d love to share more about it, so please reach out to me to schedule a free phone consultation.
