Creating Baby’s First Year Heirloom


February 12, 2021


First Year Milestones

The first year flies by so fast…even faster when you have multiple babies!!! And when you have older children, I think the time seems to speed up faster and faster and “Mom Brain” makes those little details escape quicker than ever. Sleep deprivation from those early months (sometimes late ones…sleep babies, sleep) catches up, but then over the years, you want to remember all of those sweet moments.

Without taking the time to really document your baby, how will you remember… Did she have elbow dimples? Chubby little legs? It’s so hard to remember those first year milestones with your baby!

Was she the serious baby or the one who belly laughed at everything? Thank goodness our images will help to bring back those moments so you never forget!

How Do You Remember First Year Milestones?

Documenting the first year of life is something I am honored to do for families. We celebrate sitting and crawling with a baby session around six months as part of Watch Me Grow Legacy Sessions. The big smiles, new accomplishments and personality pop around this time!  This is such a gift you will not only give to yourself now and in the future, but to your babies who will grow up loving seeing themselves in the printed images you have from when they were tiny that show how much you cherished those moments. 

Do you know someone who is expecting a little one or are you growing your family? We love documenting those early days and first year moments. Reach out today to or 574-598-0022 to get on our calendar.
