Part of being a mom is caring for and nurturing your children. It is what we do. This is demonstrated in many ways. In this digital age with cameras literally in our hands all day long, we have become accustomed to snapping a photo of our children doing what they do everyday. These pictures are great for capturing spontaneous moments and are always fun to look at and show our friends. These images often get discarded, not intentionally, but while fun, they are most of the time not compelling enough to be printed or saved other than for as long as we have our current cell phone.
However, when those all important milestone events are approaching, you think about and plan weeks in advance to make it a special, memorable time for your child. As a smart mom, part of your planning will include professional photography to preserve and protect life's important moments. Choosing to hire a professional photographer will allow you to be in the moment with your child and know that you have a professional who is capturing this special time, whether you schedule a professional photography session or hire the photographer to photograph your event.
Here are some important milestones that you will be glad you preserved:
2) 3 months
3) 6 months
4) 9 months
5) 1 year
6) 3 years - a precious time - they have changed so much over the past couple of years, don't overlook this age.
7) 6 years - Kindergarten/1st grade - you'll see some important changes
8) 10-13 years - Tween Years! It is important for your child's self-esteem during these trying years to treat them to a photography session just to celebrate them. You might even consider having a photo session party with 3 or 4 of their friends. Let them dress up, have fun, be themselves!
