Go plain and bare. Take monthly pictures of you or your partner holding your little one and see how they grow and fit into your arms. If you’re a minimalist, this is perfect for you - no more props needed!
Happiness in every slice - milestone in every month.

Aside from dressing up your baby each month and taking photos of them, you can also add more details like their weight and height, even the things that they just learned to do like cooing or waving! These will help you remember more of what your baby can do in their first twelve months .

Chalkboards are one of the easiest and most widely used for DIY documentation of your baby’s first year. Gotta up your hand lettering skills, mama!

If you want to be more creative, you can use paper flowers and other stuff and shape them into wreaths. Dress up your babe in cute outfits and start snapping!
Some babies do have their little best friend since birth a.k.a. their favorite doll or stuffed toy. It’s a nice idea to include them on the shoot. Your baby will definitely love it! https://www.pinterest.com/pin/791929915709528857/
Taking these monthly pictures can be a challenge. It’s not easy, but definitely fun and worth it. One day you’ll look back at each of these photos and remember how little your baby once was, and how time has gone by so fast. But this is just the beginning of making lovely memories with them. Don’t stop documenting their milestones even if they are all grown up!
