Is there anything faster than the first year of your babies life? Ok, fine, their whole life is fast, but that first year flies by. There is a saying that goes something like this; the days are long but the years are short. Nothing could be truer. I would also, contend that, that first year is a huge achievement! You kept a tiny, completely helpless, human alive for a whole year; and you managed not to go totally insane in the process! What an awesome feeling, right? A much better feeling than the one you had when you left the hospital with your newborn - "are they really going to just let me walk out of here with this baby?"
So, with that, begins our journey of taking pictures of everything our babies do, and don't do. I have a ton of photos of my kids just laying there, but in their defense, they were pretty cute newborns. But these images just sit on our phones now and we soon forget about them, well that is until Facebook reminds us. When I was little we had photo albums and framed portraits everywhere and I think we really need to bring that back. One of the important milestones of your newborn is their first birthday. No matter who takes them, a professional or you, make sure that you document that first birthday.
