“They grow up so fast.” Chances are, if you’re a seasoned parent, you’ve heard this expression a million times. But for newbies, it especially rings true—those first milestones are so special, they pass by in a blink of an eye. To make sure the early months are remembered forever, here are some easy and popular tips for capturing all the cuteness.
Use a Consistent Backdrop
The great thing about a consistent backdrop is that it clearly shows “You’ve come a long way, baby!” This floral baby blanket is super comfy-soft and comes with two age markers. Another fun photo prop is this adorable chalkboard, with room to jot down baby’s favorites and firsts.
For an all-out, can’t-miss-it milestone photo, try this set of jumbo-size numbers. Easy for little hands to grasp, they’re simple, yet make a wow statement.
Another idea: expressive photo cards say so much about baby’s current phase (and believe me, there are so many of them!). Nap or nah, Sunday funday, whine time, mom crush Monday—your photos are sure to get lots of grins from friends and family.
Your milestone memory book will be something you’ll always treasure, so why not show off your baby’s budding personality! Some ideas include a pom pom tutu, wings with matching headband or even a snuggly costume!
