Toronto First Year Photography: Tummy Time for Baby Miranda
At four months old, babies begin lifting their heads to take their very first looks at the world around them. At Honeybourne Studio, we call this milestone “Tummy Time,” because that’s how little ones tend to be happiest. Sure enough, Baby Miranda was tickled pink to spend time on her tummy and so eager to investigate the studio that she was trying her hardest to crawl!
Tummy Time can be the easiest of all our first year photography sessions because my tiny tots are full of smiles and funny faces – yet still not quite able to wander away from the set! But with curiosity sometimes comes frustration, so it’s important that we make sure our little ones have plenty to occupy their attention. We gave Miranda lots of toys and helped her sit up to play with teddy’s soft fur.
Meanwhile, mom and grandmom were providing plenty of entertainment in the background! Though I’d love to take credit for the beautiful smiles in almost every photograph we took, it was mom and grandmom who were making Baby Miranda so happy. Her grins are so big and her cheeks so beautifully chubby that those smiles almost squeeze her little eyes shut!
Mom wanted a girly look for this session and brought lots of pink outfits for both Miranda’s wardrobe and her own, so we matched up with pink accessories and blankets, and then complemented them with cream. We also included some headbands – I’m a huge fan of this style of headband, as opposed to the giant flower variety, because they add such a delicate touch to the photographs without being too distracting in the final images. Whenever possible, I also use accessories that are a natural progression from baby’s previous first year photography sessions.
I’m so pleased with the finished result from Miranda’s Tummy Time session – the smiles and colors combined made for such a sweet set of photographs. I’m looking forward to meeting this cute little one again at eight months old, when I’m sure she’ll be indulging that curious nature even more!
