The agreement with Handyman Tim regarding the purchase of my DSLR camera last summer was that I absolutely had to learn how to use it properly and I was not allowed to take Little Pea into a photo studio for her traditional milestone portraits. I'm truly convinced avoiding the photo studios over the last 12 months paid for my camera and gear and it was just the right kind of challenge/distraction I needed.
Since milestone photos are usually just filed away, I thought it would be fun to share my attempt at Little Pea's "official portraits" with you during her Birthday Week.
I'm pleased I managed to capture the traditional milestone poses--laying on her tummy, sitting up, and standing. We never did get a good tummy shot of the Peanut so I really appreciate Little Pea's 6 month one.
I have just one more set to try--her birthday 1 year portrait. I'm not planning on doing the typical cake smash photos but I do want to set up something cute. I'm still hunting for ideas though!
