The first year of a baby’s life is a whirlwind of fleeting moments, each one as precious as the next. At Just Peachy Photography in Palatine, IL, we are dedicated to capturing these short-lived yet profoundly significant moments. These baby milestone pictures not only freeze time but also encapsulate the magic of your child’s early development. It is important to cherish these fleeting moments and know the best times to get professional portraits taken baby’s first year.
First Movement at Around 4 Months Old
At around 4 months of age, something magical happens in a baby’s development. They start to lift up on their belly. This seemingly simple action is a significant milestone, marking the beginning of their journey towards mobility and independence. It’s during this stage that parents often notice their baby’s curiosity flourishing. It is a fun stage as they smile more at people talking and looking at them. Sometimes we even see one of my favorite poses at this stage. The baby is on their back and grabbing their toes. This is the first milestone recommended for our Baby Club Members and is always a favorite with parents. Our studio located in Palatine, IL has a large assortment of adorable outfits and accessories for babies at this milestone stage for our clients to use at their session.
Sitting Unassisted at Around 6 Months Old
Around 5-8 months old, babies begin to sit unassisted. This newfound ability opens up a world of possibilities for adorable photo opportunities. The studio is well-equipped to make the most of this milestone. We use creative props and backgrounds to add an extra layer of charm to each picture. These photos don’t just showcase your baby’s physical development but also their blooming personality. They express joy, curiosity, and sometimes, a hint of mischief. This is always a must have milestone moment with a variety of cute poses. Some include sitting up in props, sitting unassisted, laying down and looking up smiling, grabbing toes on back and lots of giggles. Usually babies are very social and smiley at this fun stage. Our client closet is stocked with many fun outfits and accessories for babies around this age.
Standing and Walking at 1 Year Old
As your baby reaches their first birthday, they may be taking their first steps or even confidently walking around. This is an incredibly significant milestone, marking the transition from babyhood to toddlerhood. I understand that this stage is not just about movement but also about capturing the boundless energy, infectious laughter, and pure excitement that accompany the first steps. Just Peachy Photography has many props, backdrops, and skills to get those beautiful baby milestone pictures at one year. One fun way to celebrate the one year old milestone is with a cake smash session. Baby gets to sit and eat a decorative cake usually for the first time. They get to explore, eat and make art with their cake. It is a lot of fun for the parents and many times baby too.
