What can you expect when scheduling a photo session for your baby at around six months old?
At this age baby’s personality has really blossomed. They are smiling and giggling at everything. They are bright eyed and chubby. First teeth are starting to come in.
It is the age of quintessential baby-ness
The Gerber baby days.
While the newborn days bring sheer joy and sheer exhaustion, this phase is a bit more settled. There is more routine. There is more sleep. You are feeling more like yourself again.
It is truly a joyful time as a parent. You are your baby’s whole world. You know their favorite games and just how to make them laugh.
You also know when they are likely to be at their happiest and when they are likely to be tired, making scheduling a successful session that much easier.
The answer to this question is a combination of what baby can and can’t do at 5-7 months old!
Baby can smile, laugh, react to favorite games + songs, roll over, lift their head up and play with their toes.
First teeth are starting to come in.
Sitting up typically begins around 6 months.
Fear of strangers (“stranger danger”) peeks at 8-10 months.
Around 9 months comes crawling followed by walking. Once babies are mobile they are much less interested in sitting in one place for baby photos.
