These photos are a great keepsake to look back on and of course share with your little one when they aren’t so little anymore.
Perfecting your baby milestone picture
It’s actually a lot simpler than you might think. There are 4 top tips we would recommend:
- A consistent background
- Good lighting
- A cute outfit
- A point of reference ( a milestone card or blanket to show how big they are getting)
You’ll find as your baby starts growing they definitely won't stay still and will probably wiggle around a lot. But just embrace these funny moments and snap away, those random shots will definitely be the funniest later on.
A great way to also capture more than just the photo memories is also with captions of their favourite food and toys. Perhaps new milestones like smiles or rolling over moments too.
