Blaise Bear is now 9 months old (these photos are two weeks late, but in my defense, we had an amazing family vacation in Maine when he turned 9 months old!)
Love this sweet little bear of mine!
In all honesty, taking milestone portraits of my own kid is one of the hardest things ever. I have a VERY active baby boy and he refuses to sit still because all he wants to do is explore his surroundings (which is a very good thing I know…but sometimes mama just wants to get some portraits!)
So, for those of you who are reading this and are parents (or photographers) who need some helpful advice in getting some pictures of your little ones:
Again, give yourself some grace and just enjoy taking several milestone portraits of your little one! Remember, these are for your keepsake albums or for your journals, or however you want to remember this short period of time! Even if they are crying the entire time, at least get one picture of that moment!
