As a photographer, I was very excited about how I might capture the quick and rapid growth of our baby daughter during her first, but I also wanted to keep it simple. I chose to use letter garlands from Rifle Paper Co. (which you can find here) and an early baby gift of Wooly the Sheep Blabla Doll. I loved the combo – it was easy and quick to make the garlands each month and you can see how big Elle has gotten in comparison to her doll.
The thing that I love most about this photo project is being able to see her sweet little personality shine through each month! Also, I love seeing the subtle changes from being a newborn to a baby to a full-fledged toddler! I truly treasure these photos and hope that when she’s grown up that she will treasure these as well and hopefully be able to share these with her own children many decades down the line.
If you are hoping to do this for your own little baby, here are my tips!
I would love to see what you do with your baby’s monthly photos. Please share them with me! Cheers! xoxo, Huoy
