I was never into documenting my growing pregnant belly during my pregnancy with Fern, but I did decide before she was born that I wanted to document her first year with month-by-month photos — because real-life babies are way cuter than babies in bellies.
There are tons of cute ideas for documenting your baby’s monthly development out there, but I wanted to come up with something that was my own and something that was simple, but cute.
Now that Fern is almost 9 months old, I think we finally have this whole monthly photo shoot business down to a science, but we’ve definitely made some mistakes along the way and learned how to make things go more smoothly over time, so I wanted to share some tips and tricks that just might help you when you’re doing you’re own baby photo shoot!
