Six Month Old Baby Session - Sugar Grove, IL photographer - Kimberlee Kay Photography
Jan 26, 2018 | By: Kimberlee Kay Photography
People sometimes ask me, when it comes to photographing babies, what my favorite age is. I hesitate to answer because each stage has its own special characteristics. Newborns are so sweet and fresh. They are truly a miracle in a tiny eight-pound package, with the most perfect little toes and delicate fingers, and that soft hair! They literally change every single day. So photographing all their little features is so important.
In one short year, those brand new babies are moving around, some standing, some walking. Most twelve month-olds have wills of steel--they know exactly what they want and how to get it. We have a lot of fun with this age in studio and outdoors. Who doesn’t love a proud baby holding himself up on a kid size chair, or smashing delightfully into a big birthday cake?
Then there’s that middle stage. And there’s the answer to that question I mentioned earlier. What’s my favorite age to photograph? I’d have to say six months. There’s something about this age that just melts my heart. Maybe it’s all the chubby goodness that they’ve packed on in a half year. Maybe it’s the variety of expressions they put out in front of the camera, from the big cheesy grins to the serious looks of curiosity. Maybe it’s the way they are just figuring out how to sit up, but are still roly poly and topsy turvy. We leave every session smiling and wanting one last squeeze.
Here’s one of those “big squeezes” we enjoyed at his six month session. Couldn’t you just melt?
