Photography, for me, is a way to capture memories at just the perfect moment. I can’t get this time back but I can freeze an image with my camera so it will be in my heart forever. I also use photography as a creative outlet. I try to incorporate fabric, crafts, and pretty things I find. So when my son was born, I wanted to remember exactly the way he looked at each stage of his first year. I also wanted to glam it up so I could admire the images and display them in our home. I know I’m not the only mommy that wants their baby to look like a gerber model AND to have the background look like their baby was just lounging around Martha Stewart’s Home in The Hamptons. Is that really to much to ask? I think not. So I try to make my baby look adorable and the background Martha Stewart approved every time I create a photo shoot. I decided to take a picture of my baby every month wearing a onesie and sitting at the same spot in the same chair . How did I make it look pretty for me? Well, I sat him on my damask chair. And who doesn’t love damask, right? I thought the pattern and colors would make his peachy skin and light brown hair stand out. And it did! I am so glad I started and almost completed this photography project. He is eleven months now. Only one more month to capture my last photo of him on my favorite chair. One more month until he is no longer an infant. One more month until we have made it through the first year. One more month until the big ONE!
I love my beautiful, beautiful, beautiful boy.
11 months and I couldn’t just take one picture. Those thighs. Ahh!
