It’s amazing how quickly a month passes, right? Or even a year, for that matter? When my daughter was born, I wanted to design a monthly photo shoot that was simple and easy — otherwise, I knew that I would procrastinate each month and get behind.
If you’re like me and know that you’ll be inclined to procrastinate, I think you’ll find the simplicity of this DIY Monthly Photo Shoot appealing. Moms are busy, right? No need to pile on additional stress and guilt over complicated monthly photos.
DIY Monthly Baby Photos: Supplies & Tips
#1: Printable Monthly Baby Photo Prop
Instead of choosing a spot in our home to take each month’s photo, I chose a backdrop that can go anywhere. This means that I can take the photo where the light is best in our home each month. I also don’t have to miss a photo if we are traveling, since this is a “mobile” backdrop. These photos were taken on a gloomy, rainy day; but she and the blanket were next to the window with the most light.
Once she was able to sit up, I draped the blanket over a piece of furniture and still used the same backdrop. Aren’t those curled feet the cutest?
