It’s hard to believe they grow so fast! I got to photograph him for his newborn portraits and then we got to see him at the holiday mins..and now he’s already a year old! I really love seeing babies grow and photographing milestone sessions. It was a little chilly the day of their session but this little one was still full of smiles! So sweet to photograph the three of them together.

According to Mom…

Who are the members of your family and a quick fact about each one. Andrew Mackenzie – was in the Army and sings his marching cadence songs to John 
Erica Mackenzie – have 2 younger brothers so having a little rambunctious baby boy has given me flashbacks to my childhood 
John Mackenzie – first word was Woof! at the beach he saw two dogs and started Woof Woofing at them

Does your little one have any favorites? John loves Cheerios, Ten Little Ladybugs book, The Wheels on the Bus song, Happy by Pharrel Williams song, dogs, being outside and hugging his mama and daddy.

What were your favorite parts of the session? I loved the location and the light! I am glad we chose that spot because it had some variety for backdrops but wasn’t difficult to navigate. I like that you are so energetic and helpful in getting John to smile. You are efficient too and I felt like we got a lot of photos in a short amount of time which is nice with a baby and a chilly (spring?!) evening like we had!

Tell me about the outfits you wore to the shoot! I ordered an outfit for John that included shorts, but it was way too cold, so I put him in jeans and added a long sleeve onesie underneath his shirt. I had also planned to have him barefoot but got hand-me-down shoes from my neighbor when I saw how cold it was going to be.

For my husband and I, we lucked out and had clothes from our closets that matched John’s. I ordered his birthday “ONE” shirt from an Etsy shop (lil threadz clothing) that my sister-in-law uses each year for her kids’ birthdays.

What are some words of wisdom you have for other Moms preparing for a session? Wear what you like & feel comfortable in. Take the time to do your hair & makeup (get help with the baby if you need it!) and then just relax and let Becky take care of the rest! We really had a lot of fun at the session.

What baby gear has been your favorite during the first year? We love our Thule jogging stroller – we use it almost daily and is so easy to push and turn. I also love the Skip Hop activity table. And the Boppy nursing pillow – I still use it everyday to nurse John!

Those Spring Trees

Raleigh Family Photography

If you saw my last post, you’d know I get so happy when the pretty Spring trees starting blooming. (That pretty tree was in a different location) The only thing is, in North Carolina, our pretty Spring trees bloom when it’s cold. Cold, cold, cold. It wasn’t too bad the day of this session, but many my session last night was just a little bit freezing. (And it’s supposed to be in the 70s tomorrow and 80s on Thursday, what, what!) I might be a little bit excited about this! So many babies were just born and I’m photographing a lot of sweet newborns in the next week, too! Super excited about all the babies being born in the next few months!

I’ve photographed this sweet family several times, and they are just so much fun. And sweet baby brother was turning one, so we had to take some portraits to document this sweet time. Love that there was one spring tree we could capture, too.

Before He’s One

Raleigh Studio Baby Photographer

Raleigh Studio Baby Photographer 7P I N this to pinterest

I loooove Baby milestone sessions and getting to see how they grow and change in the first year. It was so sweet to see this little one and get to photograph him with his Mommy. He has an older brother, and it’s always so special to get portraits alone with your baby, too. (See his newborn portraits with his big brother here, so so precious!) I love how simple and neutral milestone sessions are, and they just focus on you + your baby. I love photographing all the details that change so quickly, little hands, little feet, all that baby chunkiness! Such a sweet morning with these two!

The calendar has been crazy this week..Ericka can hardly keep up with all the styling emails. We are trying to schedule everyone as fast as we can! That being said, if you have been thinking about booking a session and haven’t done it, please contact us as soon as possible. We also have a few spots left for our Spring Mommy and Me and Family minis, so send me an email (becky@rebeccakellerphotography.com) for more information. We are really looking forward to Spring and warmer weather!

Those Lashes

Raleigh Baby Studio Photographer

I love baby milestone sessions in the studio, and with the weather right now, it’s the perfect time for indoor portraits. Some days can be super warm and some are freeezing, it’s just hard to tell what the weather will be like this time of year. This little one was so absolutely adorable with his Mama, just wanting to snuggling her and giving us lots of laughs, too. So many precious portraits, can’t wait to share all of them!

A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.

-Coco Chanel

    This little one is just so sweet and full of personality. She was just so animated for her session and love all of her different expressions. I love that her Mama got in at least one photo, too! Love all of this sweetness and her pearls, and that she brought her pretty pink blanket. Just precious.

According to Mom…

Is your little one talking? Any favorite words? “Baba” is what she says the most. We swear she’s saying “baba” when she wants a bottle!

Does she have any favorite foods? Sweet potatoes, blueberry baby yogurt, and of course, her bottles!

What is your favorite part of this stage/milestone? Her interest in the dogs, trying to talk and figuring our how to put toys together

What are your favorite places to shop for your little one? Old Navy, Amazon Prime!

Baby toys/gear you can’t live without? Sofie the giraffe and her bouncy seat
