6 months old photography/picture ideas

our girl is now 6 months old!

The past 6 months, have been the best 6 months of my life. I love my daughter more than I ever, ever thought possible.  We had a little photo-shoot to celebrate her 6 months of existence– bright and early on saturday morning. (why early? it’s august in the south and no one wants to see us glimmer-with-sweat, so early in the morning, when it’s about 10 degrees cooler, ’twas).

In the past, when getting professional photos taken, I would have bought new outfits weeks in advance, I would have the accessories perfectly picked out,  + I would have had a slight freak-out the night before–debating on whether or not everything was going to look juuust right. Not this time.

I literally threw together our outfits the night before, didn’t even bother to curl my hair, and did not freak out about, anything.  I think the difference was…….. motherhood.

Number one, I haven’t had time to make how we look my top-priority- and number two, well, having a baby just changes your priorities in general, and your perspective on what really matters.

Or, at least it has for me.

We may not be wearing the most perfect/complimentary color combination, but to me, these pictures ARE perfect.

If I had any advice, it would be: don’t lose sight of what really matters when planning your baby’s 6 months old photos. They will turn out beautifully, and will reflect what is most important, your beautiful baby and the family you were blessed with.

For these photos, I grabbed a vintage mirror that I bought at a thrift store years ago. I also grabbed the quilt (literally) off of our bed, and I even  pulled out these darling blocks that we used at my baby shower.

My favorite thing we used, however, was my mother’s rocking chair that she had when she was a little girl! I love the sentimental value that is now forever in these photos.
