6 Milestones Worth Capturing With Printed Photo Books

Maternity Photos

Each pregnancy if unique and marks a special time in every woman’s life. Before you know it, it will be over, and you will be holding your newborn in your arms for the first time. Maternity photos showcase this exciting time when your child was still growing inside you. You can include photos of your belly during different stages of pregnancy, your baby shower, and preparing the nursery before your baby is born.

Newborn Phase

The waiting is finally over, and your baby is born. The many diaper changes and lack of sleep is all worth it because nothing can compare to the overwhelming sense of protection and love you experience during the first months of your baby’s life. Capture his earliest moments with beautiful newborn photos to show him when he is older.

First Birthday

Your child’s first birthday is an essential milestone in his life that you will not easily forget. Usually, after his first birthday, he starts walking and exploring the world around him. Many parents do a cake-smashing photoshoot on their little’s one’s first birthday. It has been a longstanding tradition that marks this important milestone. Let’s face it, your child is no longer a tiny baby, and before you know it, he will be a busy toddler.

Everyday Moments

Apart from essential milestones, there are also many everyday moments that are worth capturing. For instance, on your child’s first day at his pre-school, when you start noticing his first tooth appearing, giving his first steps, his first recital, and many more. It is worth capturing all the little things and the everyday moments you share as a family.

Yearly Milestones

Consider choosing an annual milestone that you would like to commemorate. For instance, a photo book filled with photos of every birthday, celebrating Christmas, during your annual Easter egg hunt, or perhaps your annual family vacation. Yearly photos show how your child is growing, from his baby days to becoming a toddler, a teenager, and finally a grownup.

Special Family Events
