Meet Levi, this six month old stole my heart

I blogged about Levi's family a few days ago, but we had too many photographs of this absolutely adorable little boy so I had to make him his own Blogpost. His big sisters are polite, well-behaved, beautiful, photogenic, etc. and we love photographing them, but I just have a soft spot for the wee little ones.

When we talk about young children being photographed there are some photographers that have "Baby Grow With Me" packages consisting of 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. We prefer to have the sessions more developmentally based. We can, of course, photograph a child at any time, but these are the best times...
  • Newborn, meaning within the first ten days (after ~10 days they are still babies but not newborns anymore, they do not sleep as soundly, they are not "all curled up", they get baby acne, you cannot get those "miracle shots" which require a soundly sleeping baby.
  • 2-4 months, when they can hold their head up on their own (tummy time, gerber baby poses, etc.)
  • 5-8 months, when they can sit up on their own but are not moving around yet. This is a fantastic age photographically!! We can get very creative with this session
  • 9-11 months, when they can stand up, but not walk; often they require something to lean on and this makes adding in a photo prop very easy.
  • 11-13 months, "the birthday cake" session with them just in a a pair of shorts

I would be willing to "babysit" this adorable young man in the Studio anytime! I hope Charles and Cheryl bring him back for another photo session in 3-4 months!

Levi's parents are very lucky, this little boy is one of the the happiest babies I have ever seen. He loves his big sisters (and you can tell that they adore him). He was always smiling!

Can you believe this cuteness??
