Sunday Snapshot: Baby’s First Haircut

This “baby’s first” was really hard for me. I absolutely was not ready for it. This is one of those times when I think it would be easier to have a little girl because you don’t have to worry about a first haircut for years, and by then it’s probably easier to deal with. But… Read More



Sunday Snapshot: It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

In actuality, this Sunday Snapshot isn’t the greatest image. It’s not even close to being sharp, it’s not exposed correctly, it’s a little grainy.

Today I’m continuing baby C’s first birthday series by sharing a note I wrote to him for the occasion.

10 Tips for Taking Better Monthly Baby Photos

My son’s monthly baby photo was something I looked forward to each month during his first year—both taking the pictures and selecting the ones that would forever represent each monthly milestone.
