If you are wondering if you should schedule a photo session when your baby turns one, today's blog post should make you say, 'definetely!' Henry is another of my Baby Plan Graduates, and like all one year-olds, he was busy! I never spend more than an hour with them at this age -- they just don't have the attention span for it. During our hour, I used two different backdrops and added the banner and other props to one of them, so we really had 3 looks. And that worked perfectly since mom had picked out 3 outfits.
I try to let them move enough so they don't get frustrated, and I try to give them lots of different things to do - stand, sit on floor, sit in bucket, stand by bucket, sit on this little chair, hold this, hold that, I turn on music and sing, and Dad did a lot, a whole, whole, lot, of picking him up and putting him back on the backdrop. We all end up sweaty, but how many times will he turn one? It's so worth it!
