Tips for a One Year Photo Shoot

Ok, I am seriously freaking out right now (I know, I sound a bit to Elle Woods for my own good, I’ll stop). But seriously. My sweet little baby is turning ONE in less than a month. I can’t even. My heart simultaneously aches for how fast this first year has gone and burst with how amazing it’s been. All of you Mommies and Daddies who are reading this know what I’m talking about.

So with this exciting big day right around the corner, it’s time for me to set up my gal’s One Year photos.  Luckily, blogging about tips for One Year Photos was on my list of topics to discuss with Chelse for this blog, so win/win! Here’s what Chelse had to say about One Year Photos:

ONE is different for every baby. They are all at different stages. Some are not walking yet, some are running! Some love cake, some think it is TOTALLY GROSS!

The biggest tip for every session is: Roll with it! BUT here are some more specific for the big ONE SESSION!

Here are a few more tips:

  1. Let’s eat cake?!? It is stylish and adorable. And honestly easy. We don’t have to try and keep them in one spot, the cake does that for us! I can have a cake at the session for you ($25) or you can bring your own! Don’t worry about the mess (I clean it up) AND you give them the cutest bath! (that of course get’s photographed!). Let’s pick some colors that go well with your nursery, or big kid room or a theme that fits in with something your and your babe love! And also, cake stands…I have a collections!Glow Weddings BlogGlow Weddings Blog
  2. Bring some fun decorations!! I have some things at the studio for sure, but it is amazing if you have personal touches. It amps it up a lot! Balloons! One giant One? Or a bunch! Banners I love (and have a couple), but order one! Like these (the first photo) or these (the second photo). I am in LOVE WITH these chalkboard details boards! A photo of the ONE year old as a brand new baby! Never ever do you change so much as in the first year.

  3. Accessorize! I’m pretty obsessed. And you can see that at the studio! I have lots of this kind of stuff. I stay up late night shopping for them. (shhhhh) Hats? Jewelry? Shoes? Ties? Hair Bows? They all make a total difference. As usual, I have some of each. BUT if you want to have your own that specifically match your color scheme, do it.Glow Weddings Blog
  4. Favorite toys and books?! I love these photos. Those toys and books go away as they get older. Remember them! Bears? Dolls? Trains? Whatever makes sense for your babe!Glow Weddings Blog

So bring a suitcase. I don’t care! I’m excited when it looks like my clients are moving in. It means I have a lot of great stuff to work with! We decide together what to use. It always turns out just as it should.
