Do you have an adorably photogenic tiny person living in your house? Here's one idea that will help preserve the memories of her first year in a keepsake you can pick up over and over again even after your baby has her own babies.
First, if you don't fancy yourself a photographer, or just want to have some quality shots of your little one as she grows from month to month, book a session at a portrait studio to have some professional shots taken. It doesn't have to be anything fussy or high-brow—you can just visit a local place like Portrait Innovations that will take great photos for affordable prices. Make sure to take baby when she's well fed and well rested to get the most smiles for your buck! You can dress her up in a special wardrobe, or you can just put her in the clothes that reflect her personality best—the most important thing is creating the pictures that you'll want to keep and display for years to come. (And don't forget—babies are unpredictable! Bring diapers, wipes, burp cloths and several changes of clothes for any mishaps that might occur.)
After you've snagged some sweet shots, make sure they don't just end up in a drawer somewhere. Send them over to an online photo book site like RitzPix and assemble your favorites (plus those random snaps of daily life you have on your camera) to make a book of your baby's first year and beyond. You'll be able to pull it out for years and remember your baby's first smiles and steps, and your family will love to get one as a gift. You can customize it with the colors and templates you like best, and in no time, you'll have a memorable treasure.
So book a photo session and make a book today, and remember the early years for a lifetime.
