Bellamy is Six Months Old
Bellamy is Six Months Old
Last Saturday, I met up with sweet Bellamy to celebrate her 1/2 birthday.

Bellamy is one of my “watch me grow” clients and I can’t believe we’re already half-way through her first year.

She looks just like her mama, so everytime I see her, I feel like I’m looking at mini-me. Adorable!

One of the things we wanted to try during this session was a mirror. Babies are so fascinated with their own reflection at this age. Bellamy very much enjoyed playing with the girl in the mirror.

Granted, she has now reached the age where she won’t automatically smile for the camera. No worries, I do love a challenge.

But look, there’s a smile.

And then there’s mommy – she lights up when she’s in her mother’s arms. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be?

Another shot we wanted to try was this one, where mom and dad squish Bellamy’s face together with a kiss. I think it turned out pretty sweet.

One of the things I love about this family is that I get to shoot the whole family. I know for certain that I don’t have enough family photos of my own family, and I’m so glad that this sweet family is capturing their lives together at each of Bellamy’s milestones.

Here’s Bellamy with her daddy – you can already tell that she has him wrapped around her little baby fingers.

Wardrobe change – Bellamy’s mama brought this adorable two-piece swim suit for Bellamy to model during our photo session. At this point, Bellamy was more interested in chewing on her music thingie.

She did allow us to take it away, but she wasn’t really happy about it.

So I let her fuss while I photographed her feet. Even at six months old, baby feet are always sweet.

We then ended our session with another family shot. Bellamy is clearly the focus of this shot…but look at those legs. LOVE!

With that said, I hope you enjoyed the preview. I’ll be sharing a recent newborn session in the next few days. Until then, come back on Sunday to join the Scavenger Hunt.
