Clay Jar Photography, a trusted portrait photographer in Cape Town, shares the most important moments of a young child’s life that should be captured in photos.
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
Let’s face it, you will not trade motherhood for anything – no matter what happens. Being a mom is probably one of the most wonderful things in the world. Sure, there are sleepless nights, temper tantrums and endless household chores. One look at your little bundle of joy, however, and you realise that it is worth it.
Babies can drive us nuts sometimes, but their smile, hugs and kisses can fill our hearts with happiness. Every journey involves many wonderful things. As your baby grows up, it can be difficult to remember them all. This is why you need to document and preserve those precious memories.
As a trusted name in the photography industry, I would like to share the must-remember moments to include in your baby’s photobook.
If you have already taken a photo of your baby’s gummy smile, the next thing you should capture is the first tooth. You may not realise how important this moment is until much later. To capture this event, do not hesitate to get some help. Work with a professional photographer and have a family picture – with your baby showing a big toothy grin. Be sure to have plenty of shots of the crooked smile. It is a milestone that indicates your baby is getting ready for trying solid food.
Your baby’s first few steps is another moment that you should cherish. It could be better than sipping a good cup of coffee in the morning. Capture this special day through a stunning photograph. You can also try something new like a photo of your baby’s footprints in the sand or on paper.
Make sure not to miss your baby’s first birthday. Capture as much of the event as possible, even if someone is taking video coverage. Take a photo of his cake, clothes and presents. You may also want to photograph the games, the food and even the party favours.
Baby photography may not seem so important, but it is great to have many beautiful memories to look back on. Clay Jar Photography can help you make it all happen. Contact me today to learn more about the photography packages on offer.
