Six Months Old

Six months, you’ve made it six whole months with that tiny baby, who really isn’t so tiny anymore. It’s a great milestone. Hopefully he’s sleeping through the night, or almost sleeping through the night so you don’t feel like you’re dead on your feet everyday. You probably have a routine you follow, and it is saving your life.

You’re even more enamored with your little guy than you were when he was born. I mean, look at that smile! There was nothing else cuter in the world.

Six months old is a great time for a photo session because your baby is starting to sit up, smiles easily, and yet he or she hasn’t learned to crawl away from you yet. It’s the calm before the storm, and I love it. This little guy has such a great head of hair, and the biggest smile. I love seeing him grow up! I’m sure you can tell his parents are smitten.

Do What You Can, When You Can

Something happens between the time your kids are in 1st and 2nd grade and high school. Life ZOOMS forward at a pace you never knew possible, and never anticipated. You get so immersed in life with children you don't have time for much else. The school days, soccer practices, dance recitals, swim meets, scout meetings, piano lessons and practice, band, chorus, church, playdates, birthday parties, PTA meetings, carnivals, tournaments, camps, field trips, hair cuts, dentist and doctor appointments, clothes shopping, baking, cooking, etc etc consume you until you look up and they are almost grown. I have so many moms of teenagers who come to me and confess with so much needless guilt that the last family pictures they had were when their children were toddlers. They feel bad about it and are determined to make up for lost time.

Ditch the guilt! I'm 100% sure those years are documented on your phone and computer (don't forget to print them - seriously). It's never too late for family portraits. Do what you can when you can, and that is all you can do. That is more than enough.
