I am always so amazed how much a baby changes from their newborn photos to their 4 month old baby photos. This happy little lady was no exception! She was such a peanut when I did her newborn session back in November and now she is a happy baby with a big smile and the most adorable cheeks. While I see her a couple days a week, this was the first time I got to spend some quality time with her. She adores music, whether it is her little music toy or Mom singing “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad”, she really lights up (especially for Mommy). I especially love capturing the ongoing bonds between Mom and baby (even if she is just comforting baby and doesn’t realize I’m capturing it). Most of the time Mom is the one behind the camera and we miss capturing this special time when they fit so well in our arms.
Here is baby Greta wearing the same hat during her newborn session! I just love seeing elements like this tie the sessions together 🙂
This is such a fantastic age to capture a baby’s many, many expressions. Whether they are sticking out their tongue, blowing bubbles, making a mad face or a huge gummy smile, they are all so unique and something we tend to forget when they move on to the next phase. Doing a collage like this is the perfect way to capture all of those adorable and fleeting expressions.
