Loveland Baby Photography | Milk Bath Photos

– A Splashing Good Time –

Welcome back to the photo studio Taetym!

Monthly Baby Photos: 8 Months

Over the weekend, Taetym came into the studio for her 8-month photo session. This sweet little lady comes in every month for photos, but this was her first time in my new Loveland photo studio. I absolutely love getting to see her and her mom every month. I feel like Taetym changed so much this time! She is crawling and just looks older to me. I feel so lucky to be able to see all of the little changes every month.

Milk Bath Photos

Splish-splash! The highlight for me was definitely the milk bath part of the photo session. She had me laughing so hard. All the different little expressions were so much fun to capture in a photo. I love being able to do milk bath photo sessions again!

Thanks for coming into the photo studio Taetym! I’m so excited to be part of your first year and I can’t wait to see you next month.

Local Baby Photography | 6 Month Baby Photos

Milk Bath and More

Welcome to the photo studio Adriel!

Milestone Photo Sessions at Local Baby Photo Studio

Adriel recently came into the studio for his 6-month photos. His mom wanted to do a milk bath session to remember this milestone.

Interesting Fact: Adriel was the first photo session in my new Loveland photo studio!

We go together like milk and cookies!

Milk Bath Themed Baby Photos

Not only was this the first session in my new studio, it was also the first in-studio milk bath session I have done in the last year. My old studio didn’t have a good set up for doing milk bath sessions so I just stopped doing them. I though it was fitting that the first session in my new studio was also a milk bath session. This was such a fun theme. It’s always fun to see what ideas parents come up with for milestone photos.

Not Just About Milk and Cookies

Adriel wore two additional outfits that were super cute! I love the blue floral shirt with suspenders. So cute! As you can see, he is such a happy baby.

Adriel’s other outfit was blue with little white arrows. It went perfectly with a little greenery.

Thanks for coming into the photo studio Adriel! I’m so excited to be part of your 6 month photos.

Fort Collins 6 Month Baby Photos | Let the World Hear You Roar

Welcome back to the photo studio Aiden!

Milestone Photo Sessions at Local Baby Photo Studio

Aiden recently came back into the studio for his 6-month photos. I absolutely love getting to see babies grow and change. I never would have recognized him from his newborn photos. It’s almost shocking how fast they change! It’s so fun to see the little changes and help his parents remember all of the details.

To Go To Sleep I Count Dinosaurs, Not Sheep!

Dinosaur Themed Baby Photos

Aiden is dressed in blue and green camo. If you look really closely you can see dinosaurs hiding in the camo. It’s always fun to see what ideas parents come up with for milestone photos.

Sibling and Birthday Photos

While at the studio, we also did a couple sibling photos on my Valentines background and his big sister’s 4-year photos. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Thanks for coming into the photo studio Aiden! I’m so excited to be part of your first year and I can’t wait to see every little change.

How Often Should I Get Professional Photos of My Baby?

How often should you get professional photos of your baby done? That fully depends on you. I’m going to list the most popular frequencies and ages of baby photo sessions so you can decide for yourself.


ONE AND DONE. One photo session during your baby’s first year is a favorite for many. Many people save up a long time to have professional photos done. They put their whole budget into one photo session. Most people who only do one photo session during their baby’s first year choose between a newborn session or a 1st birthday session.


TWO FOR YOU? Most people who choose to do two photo sessions during their baby’s first year usually do newborn and a 1st birthday session. This is a fun way to catch the beginning and the end of their first year. It’s amazing to see all the ways they have change in a year.


THREE FOR ME. Three photo sessions in the first year is my favorite! Newborn, sitter and 1st birthday is the perfect combination to fully see all the changes at every major milestone.


FOUR OR MORE. If you don’t want to miss a moment this choice might be for you. I photographed my youngest every month when he was a baby. Knowing he was my last was really hard for me. Those photos mean so much to me!

1 Month
2 Months
3 Months
4 Months
5 Months

To Be Continued… See you next month sweet girl!

6 Months

What do you think? How often would you like to get your baby photographed?

Should I Get Professional Newborn Photos of My Baby?

“You will never have this day with your children again. Tomorrow they will be a little bigger than they are today. This day is a gift. Breathe and notice. Smell and touch them. Study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today. It will be over before you know it.”

Jen Hatmaker

We all know babies change fast. As a mother of 3 wild boys, I know first-hand how fast their sweet little personalities change and how important it is to cherish all the little details that change ever so quickly. In a blink of an eye, I went from snuggling my babies to sending them off to pre-school. It goes way too quickly.

When I think back to when my little ones were babies, there are several moments that stick out; the first time I got to hold my baby, first family photo, first bath, and all the baby snuggles. The memories that are most vivid for me are the ones I can look back at through a photograph. I can’t even begin to tell you how important my kiddos baby photos are to me. They take me back to a time that I don’t get to have again except in memories and photographs.

As important as those baby photos are to me, I wouldn’t hang them on my wall. Huh!?! What? I didn’t get professional photos of my boys done. I thought I could do it myself. I was wrong. The photos are dark, blurry with wrinkled backgrounds. I love them because that is what I have but oh how I wish I had photos I was proud to display.

Summer
2011

Are these photos a little blurry? Yes. Was I using a tablecloth for a background? Yes. Do I know why he is not centered in the photo? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. Are you laughing yet? I am.

Fall
2014

Are these photos still a little blurry? Yes. Did I think putting photos in black and white would distract people from the blurriness? Yep. Was I using a bed sheet for a background? Yes. Do I know why I didn’t de-wrinkle the background? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. I sure did. It’s okay to laugh. Seriously, go ahead.

Spring
2018

Are these photos still blurry? No. Thankfully, I had learned a few things by this time. Did I post these on social media? Yes. Would I put these on my walls? Yes. Is it important to have professional portraits of your baby? Yes!

Winter 2022

Things to Consider

Professional photography is a luxury experience that not everyone can afford. Is the investment worth it for you? Here is a list of things to consider:

  • Is it important to you to have photos of from when your baby is still a baby?
  • Do you like having properly composed, well lit, in focus photos?
  • Do you want photos you would be proud to hang on your walls?
  • Would you like to relax knowing your baby is in good hands for their photos?

Fort Collins Baby Photography | Monthly Baby Photos

7 Months

Welcome back to the photo studio Taetym!

Monthly Baby Photos

Taetym recently came back into the studio for her 7-month photos. I absolutely love getting to see her and her mom every month. She was so smiley this time! It’s incredible to see all the little changes and help her mom remember the details before they change.

Themed Baby Photos

Taetym’s mom usually brings in a couple outfits and we pick backgrounds that we think will look good. This month we picked a white background, and she wore two different outfits. The first outfit you see picture is a similar color as the background(monochromatic). I love monochromatic photos! It doesn’t matter if it is for a newborn or a 7-month-old, monochromatic photos bring the focus onto the baby. Right where it should be! For added variety Taetym also wore a super cute pink dress for some of the photos.

Thanks for coming into the photo studio Taetym! I’m so excited to be part of your first year and I can’t wait to see you next month.

Fort Collins Baby Photography | Silent Nights? Holiday Edition

Welcome to the photo studio Dane!

Dane recently brightened up my day by visiting me at my Fort Collins photo studio. It was time for his 3-month photos. He is so adorably cute with his pink cheeks and cute Santa hat. Silent nights have been traded for this little cutie at his house. Well worth it, I’m sure!

3 Month Photos

3-month milestone photos are so sweet and unique. Every photo is different because their little personalities are really starting to shine through. Babies change so fast, it’s important to document all of the little changes. Photos help us remember the details.

Baby and Family Photos

I love getting to photograph baby’s and their parents. The smiles, the cuddles and all the adoration for this new person, is what makes capturing family portraits so incredible. Dane saved all of his smiles for his parents! It didn’t matter what I tried, he only wanted to smile for them. Luckily, his sweet parents new just what to do to make him smile.

It was so much fun to photograph Dane.

I hope you have a great 1st Christmas little one!
