8 Milestones Of A 7 Month Old Cutie-Pie
I had the privilege of taking some family photography for my friends of their beautiful bundle of joy, Ivy. Ivy celebrated her 7 month birthday recently. It was a good opportunity to record those monumental life stages that happen so quickly when children are little, but can be soon forgotten - everything changing so fast.
I travelled through to Edinburgh to their home to take the family and pet photography session. We started the session with baby photography inside when cutie-pie Ivy was having lunch. How she managed to get it up her nose I still don't know....
Milestone 1 - Eating Solids Whilst Still Drinking Milk
Next for Miss Ivy was some 'exploration' time on the floor.
Milestone 2 - Sitting Up By Herself
Sitting up frees little Ivy's hands for exploration - which leads to our next milestone...
Milestone 3 - Turning To Pick Up a Toy - And Not Toppling Over Again...
Milestone 4 - Commando Crawling
Pretty much as soon as a baby learns to sit up, they will start to lunge forward and learn how to start getting mobile. The world around them is just way to exciting to stay sitting still! Proper crawling may be a few months off. Each baby will have their own style for learning how to get initially mobile, for example 'commando crawling' - moving about on their tummy.
Milestone 5 - Rolling Over
Being able to roll over, from being placed on her back or stomach, means that Ivy has another way of being mobile and it looks pretty fun too....
Milestone 6 - Playing Peek-A-Boo
I can still see you Ivy.... Ivy is able to hold the cushion up using her 7 month old's strong arm muscles.
Next came some mother and baby photography before also bringing in Daddy.
Milestone 7 - First Steps (With Help)
We next took the photography session outside with the whole family - into the garden. Here we took some family shots.
Milestone 8 - Exploring Your Face
I have noticed at this age that babies like to explore people's faces given half the chance. Unfortunately for parents, this means grabby hands poking at your eyes, nose and mouth.
It's worth capturing all these little milestones, which just feel so natural at the time. If you would like me to hire me to come along to your house, or the venue of your choice, to capture them, then do get in touch.
Although I am primarily a Glasgow photographer, having previously lived in Edinburgh for a number of years, I consider myself an Edinburgh photographer too. Feel free to ask me about family sessions in both areas.
