Merry Christmas from this little stander...
This darling shot was taken at this little guy's one year session of his complete Baby's First Year package.
The first year of your baby's life is so elusive. That is why we offer the Baby's First Year package. We offer 3 different sessions at a substantially discounted price over the individual packages. We capture those moments of their newborn stage, sitting (6 months) and standing (1 year). We can even throw in a cake smash at the one year session. Contact me for more information. #christmasbaby#christmasbabyphoto#babysfirstyearpackage#babysfirstyear
What an American classic..."Where the Wild Things Are" I remember my preschool dedicating a month to this book & ending the unit with a puppet show. Funny how certain memories stay with you even 30 years later. I hope this memory of Avi's smash cake stays in his memory bank 30 years from now too!
So many cake smash’s came in this last week! Our Little Footprints is a portrait program that captures imagery of babies first year and includes a complimentary cake for the 1yr portrait. The cake comes from @zestfreshpastrywest who can design the cake to your theme and preference.
Right now through September 30th if you book your newborn portrait session you receive complimentary entry into the program! Limited program spots available so reserve your spot now.
The face I make when a little one joins my Baby's First Year Program, and I know I get to capture all of those beautiful and amazing milestones. ☺️ (Also the face I make when I realize it is FriYAY! 🙌🎉) #taylorelchertphotography
Little Dude’s 9 month milestone session was done in the Mountains on Tuesday! He’s so handsome and his mama is so beautiful he can’t help but stare 😍💙 Did you know you can book First Year Package instead of a Newborn Package and still get a newborn session PLUS 3 other sessions including their first birthday/cakesmash all included? Message us for more info or to book your own 👌🏻
“You see, Wendy, when the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.” JM Barrie This sweet baby boy laughed and laughed- BELLY LAUGHED- in the arms of his sweet mama during his 5 mo shoot. It was the kind of thing you want to bottle up and wear around your neck always. #mamaslovephotography#joypreserved#babysfirstyearpackage#mothersintheframe 📸: @candacedchaney
Could she be any more scrummy?! 😍
We were at my lovely cousins baby shower today, getting super excited to meet her baby in the next few weeks! Check out my stories for all the fab photos (and to look in awe at my aunties garden!!).
It reminded me just how much information, support and structure there is antenatally. At a minimum you have scans and regular midwife appointments plus you can choose to attend antenatal classes, hypnobirthing classes (121, groups or online), pregnancy yoga, relaxation classes and even have additional scans if you want to. Yes most of it costs money but it's widely accepted that getting support and information from experts, as well as meeting other mamas-to-be is part of preparating to give birth and is a postive thing.
So why, once we've had the baby, do things change? Mamas can be made to feel that they should just muddle through on their own. Its a time where we're told to use our intuition but a lot of new mamas are worried they'll do something wrong and want reassurance and support from both experts and other mamas who have been there. ❤️
I found that often I had an idea of what I wanted to do but didn't have the confidence to do it. I'd use Google to validate my idea and find people saying my approach wasnt the 'right' way. It took me a while to realise that broadly speaking, there isn't a right or wrong way but it is incredibly important to find people who have the same approach as you.
*This* is why I'm creating The Baby Bubble Hub. To provide information from experts so you can check what your intuition is telling you without having to scroll through Google for 3 hours. Then you can go and chat to other mamas in the same place as you and ones who have been there and can give you support.
You'll feel supported, informed and more confident.
It launches 4 weeks tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited to finally share it with you all.
Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing who my amazing team of experts are, giving you insights in to what sort of support you'll get and talking more about the approach and why this is by far the best value way to get expert advice and support from mamas, whilst avoiding overwhelm.
With what seems like the world eagerly awaiting the announcement of the new royal baby’s name, it’s clear that the importance of family remains strong.
Whilst I am eager to know the new Prince’s name, what I’m truly looking forward to is the first #familyphoto of the new family of five. The first view of the baby Prince with his siblings.
When you welcome your first baby into the world, having these precious moments captured is often close to the forefront of your mind. With second babies too you’ll likely remember the joyful experience of having these memories captured. .
As any Parent will tell you, whether the baby your are expecting is your first or fifth, they and their journey in this adventure we call life are equally as important and loved.
So yes, I’d like to know the name of our new Prince, but I’m more excited about how HRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge capture their first precious #familymoments .
If you are reading this as a #parenttobe I’d love to hear how and when you are capturing your #newadditions arrival so comment below and let me know. You can also make sure that you don’t miss a moment by getting in touch with me via the link in the bio.
Now about that name...
