Milestone Session {Lincoln is 6 months!}

Milestone Session {Lincoln is 6 months!}

For real, this sitter stage is one of my very favorites! I miss the days when I could put my little baby on a blanket with some toys and they’d sit and explore with their hands and put every little thing in their mouth. Before mobility got them excited about bigger and better things and moving all over the house.  These milestone sessions are always some of the sweetest as you catch all of those little sides of their personality before they can run away. Not too long after this session, Lincoln was crawling all over and then suddenly walking!

I love styling these sessions to be classic and timeless. When your little one is a brother, baby #2 can have a matching session and still be in style!  The studio has a good selection of wardrobe options for boys and girls in muted and neutral colors. Including special props like Lincoln’s favorite little elephant lovey make these pictures even more special.

If the little person in your life is about to reach a new milestone, you know it will be short-lived before the stage breezes in and takes you by surprise! Contact me at kate@dearkatestudios.com to schedule your studio session today <3

Reese’s Milestone Portraits {6 Months Old}

Reese’s Milestone Portraits {6 Months Old}

Sweet baby Reese came into the Loveland studio shortly after he turned 6 months old. I absolutely adore this age!! Babies are so smiley and happy and haven’t quite reached that stranger danger zone just yet. Reese was no exception! He was happy as can be to show off his new skills sitting up unassisted and holding his head high during tummy time. All babies reach these milestones at their own rate of course so I always suggest booking your session for the milestone vs an exact age. Documenting your baby’s growth through the first year is so fun as there is so much change from day to day!

For Reese’s session we used a combination of mom’s favorite outfits from home and the wardrobe I keep in studio! She loved not having to stress about what he was going to wear and making sure things fit before leaving home. We know how quickly these little people outgrow those adorable outfits before they ever get to wear them!!

Fort Collins Baby Pictures {8 Months Sitter Session}

Fort Collins Baby Pictures {8 Months Sitter Session}

The sitter stage is one of my very favorites to photograph! Matthew came in at 8 months, fully crawling (FAST!) and starting to pull up on things! It was challenge to catch him but oh so fun! The smiles at this age are just the best, and look at his big blue eyes and gorgeous eye lashes!! Photographing baby at all stages through out their first year is such an amazing job! I love watching these little people grow from their mommy’s tummy, to newborn, to tummy time smiles, sitter sessions and for their first birthday cake smash session. Classic, simple styles create timeless portraits. I provide wardrobe in the studio too to make it easier for you! Of course you can bring your favorite outfits too! And baby’s favorite lovey is always a good idea! Matthew had pink flamingo beanie baby that was just the cutest!

Loveland Maternity Pictures {Waiting on Baby A}

Loveland Maternity Pictures {Waiting on Baby A}

When Erin contacted me she knew she wanted newborn pictures of her little man but she was on the fence about maternity pictures. I totally understand how intimidating it is to be in front of the camera, but I am so glad we went for it! Soon after we started Erin and Jose were totally at ease being photographed. We laughed and joked and got to know each other, and before they knew it, we were all done! 

Baby A will adore these photos of his mom and dad as he grows. My kids love to  see  “pictures of me in your belly!”. And how special is it as an adult, to see photos of your parents before you were born? 

Expecting your own little bundle? Let’s make sure your they’ve got images to cherish for years to come. Email be at kate@dearkatestudios.com or through the contact for below to learn more!

Loveland Baby Photographer {3 Month Pictures- Jack}

Loveland Baby Photographer {3 Month Pictures- Jack}

I was so excited to baby Jack back in the studio for his 3 month pictures! One of my favorite parts of my job is watching families grow and really getting to know them. I love following my clients on Facebook and Instagram to see part of their little ones every day life, but seeing them back in front of my camera to capture those professional images makes my heart happy! Three months is such a fun age to capture! Babies are full of smiles and really starting to master head control during tummy time!

 Jack is the third child in his family so his mama has some fun traditions already established for her children. Big brother and sister wore the same cloth diaper in their pictures and each kiddo had a similar blanket. I loved incorporating these things into Jack’s three month old photos!!

Grow With Me Baby Plans are a great way to capture all of those milestones throughout baby’s first year as they grow and change! Contact me at kate@dearkatestudios.com or through the contact form above for details!

Loveland Baby Photographer {Sweet 6 Month Sitter}

Babies grow so quickly! That sweet little helpless newborn quickly becomes full of personality, sitting, and starting to crawl! These moments are so precious and fleeting! As a Loveland studio photographer, I love capturing a baby’s personality as they grow! Details of their crawl, sweet chubby hands and eyelashes for days! Norah came to the studio dressed in the most adorable little polka dot dress and jean jacket. We took a few pictures in that outfit before moving to the studio wardrobe. Dear Kate Studios has a growing collection for babies ages newborn to 1 year. Babies grow so quickly that it can be a bummer to buy new outfits special for pictures only to have the not fit soon there after! I also love being able to use some of the same props and headbands that we used in newborn pictures again when baby is 6 months or a year old! It’s so fun to see the comparison as they grow!
