Oh my sweet Sebastian!! I so enjoyed photographing his newborn photos and most of his first year images. Sebastian’s family unfortunately ended up moving at the end of last year and I was unable to photograph his 1 Year Cake Smash. Such a beautiful little boy and by far his mommy brought the BEST outfits for him!! Always picture perfect. :) These were taken back in July of 2013 (I finally made it out of June for blogging catchup!!) and from his photos on Facebook, he has grown so much! Sebastian has the biggest, brightest blue eyes ever and he makes such adorable faces for the camera. Raleigh baby photography at 9 months is a lot of fun because most babies can crawl and do some supported standing for their photos…but they aren’t quite walking/running yet which makes for an easier session since we don’t have to do quite as much chasing around the studio. ;)
Hopefully when Sebastian’s family is in town again to visit family, I will have the honor of photographing him again. I just love watching my babies grow up and develop personalities and skills!! I generally suggest Milestone Sessions at 6 months/sitting and 1 Year Cake Smash but those “in between” stages are just as precious and deserved to be captured. At 3 months, babies facial expressions really start to shine through and they are practicing their ever important tummy time and at 9 months – just before they become walkers – they are exploring their environment by pulling up on objects to stand supported and even use it to practice supported walking (or what I like to call “couch cruising”).
