The milestones of childhood can never be repeated.
But they can be captured in portraits that tell the story of a child's growing up ...
as he or she passes through a series of stages... moving ever closer to adulthood.
THE FIRST YEAR OF LIFE
At no time in your child's life will physical changes occur so rapidly.In what seems like the blink of an eye, a tiny, helpless bundle is transformed into an active, robust and inquisitive youngster.
At Three Months . . . babies are fresh, new human beings–totally dependent on the important people in their lives.
A three-month portrait will preserve that time of newness.
When photographed with one or more parents or
siblings, a portrait at this age will capture forever
that fleeting time when family members are the
center of your baby's intimate world.
At Six Months . . . babies are so loveable! Cuddly and responsive, yet still dependent. Strengthened muscles let them sit up and take part in the world around them. Often happy-go-lucky, they crave attention and delight in having an audience. Portraits at this age are a perfect time to reveal chubby little arms and legs—and even backsides!
At Nine Months . . . Many babies begin to strike out on their own. Still dependent on their parents, but starting to explore an ever-expanding world . . .
well on the way to becoming a real little person and letting everyone know . . .
"You won't hold on to me for long!"
One Year . . . The permanent facial characteristics begin to reveal a family likeness and individual character . . . still a baby, yet emerging as a robust and inquisitive child who is ready to meet the world. For the child who is now walking, the perfect message of the portrait is
Around the second birthday, a major milestone is achieved.
The toddler now responds to reason, humor, and action. Totally unpredictable, but always adorable... expect them to be loveable, shy, rowdy, or reserved—as they begin to explore the world around them... here one minute and gone the next!
Spunky, unpredictable TWO!!
Still toddlers, most three-year-olds have discovered how to entertain themselves.
The world of toddlers is filled with portrait opportunities that capture the mystery and fantasy that are so much a part of these joyful days of discovery and make-believe that fade so soon.
Three is a time when anything is possible. . .
