Babies during their First Year Milestones at 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months old.

Yesterday I photographed baby Milo and his mom and dad in their home (conveniently located a couple blocks from my house!) for a lifestyle baby session. Milo was 8 weeks and his session was filled with cuddles and beautiful morning sunlight and lots of love. Here are some of my favorites! Thanks for allowing me to photograph your family you three, I can’t wait to see all again!

My last baby turned 1 today. I think I need therapy for just that one line. It has been a year of getting to know this big personality that has joined our little family and I can’t believe it has gone by already. I love this little one so much, I can barely stand it and I am thankful to have gotten another chance to raise a baby through his first 12 months of life, there is truly nothing like this period of time.

Last Sunday we had a little party with our family and my Dad and step mom and this morning we all went out and shared a Monster Donut from Rocket donuts, that was bigger than Silas’ head. Here are some picture of Silas’ party and is 12 month photos and a flash back to last year at his birth.

The daffodils are out in bloom in Mount Vernon and the views are breath taking! Just a quick 30 minute drive for all of us in Bellingham, makes these blooms a fun spring or Easter photoshoot location for babies through big kids! I will be offering 6 mini sessions  in the daffodils next weekend. They will take place on Saturday, with the possibility of doing some sunset shots Friday as well. These will be open to babies, toddlers, kids, families, sibling groups or pregnant mamas. Details such as times (we will give you the time that works best for your schedule) and specific location will be sent after payment is complete. Hurry and sign up today by using the button at the bottom!

This is a my little man at 5 months. When you live in the northwest, especially Bellingham and especially when you are a photographer, you appreciate the sun more than anyone else I am convinced. So even though its winter, you get out and shoot when you see those rays, and this day a week ago was one of those times!

This little guys is sitting, scooting, babbling up a storm and loves his Sophie, the giraffe. I am loving having a baby of my own at home again, there is truly nothing like it!

After a move from Ashland, Oregon to Bellingham, Washington this summer and having our sweet baby Silas in August, the holidays and 5 months of maternity leave from photography, I am back! I still really miss Ashland, but also love Bellingham, our new home and the people we met and places we have been so far. Here’s a little photo update form my life!

Right after coming back to Bellingham, Silas and I flew to Sacramento to photograph my brother in law’s wedding.

So that is all for now, I am now a mom of three, living in Bellingham, enjoying exploring all the beauty of this area of the northwest and trying to keep up with my kiddos! I’m hoping in 2014 to start shooting births again (more on that later) and being more social and meeting and hanging out with more women and other moms.

Love,

Crystal
