So back in this post I was tossing around the different ideas for monthly photos of little miss Maya. Well, there wasn’t a specific chair or spot in our house that I thought would work as a cute backdrop, and I didn’t want to rely on too many props. I ended up going the white onesie route with a patterned backdrop. I figure I’ll always have a white onesie around so that shouldn’t be too much of a hassle. As for the background – well, after looking through the different examples out there, I realized how much I liked how Sherry and John’s (from uber popular blog Young House Love) photos of Clara looked when they were all put together in a collage. So colourful and fun. Since we are doing the monthly route (they did weekly), I know we can just use different fabric backdrops that we already own. This first month, for example, I used a lovely soft blanket that a friend of mine gave me for the baby. I’ve got plenty more blankets and fabric scraps to use in the months to come. No having to go out and buy anything!
I put down the blanket, plopped my little lady down, and started shooting. Here were a few of my favourites.
But these next three were just so cute, I couldn’t pick one!
She makes this scrunched up face all the time, which totally makes me giggle.
What do you guys think? Which is your favourite?
And I couldn’t help but throw in a few other photos from these past few weeks. I’m totally obsessed with this little lady. She is becoming so much more alert, has huge blue eyes, is giving out smiles if you work for them (!), and loves to stand and bounce in your arms. Oh, and I can’t forget the grunts. For such a small and pretty little person, she is seriously loud!
Little hip hopper..
Love you, miss Maya Wray Clare! xo.
