Rachel and I had been racking our brains trying to come up with something unique for the little miss’ 9 month photos.
A few times Rachel had mentioned wanting to get a photo of Amelia in an old wash tub—like a photos she had of herself as a child—so that inspired our outdoor bubble bath session!
But first, we had to get a few photos in her Easter dress!
What I love most about having these sessions every 3 months is capturing the ever changing personality of a child. Mia loves to clap and gives these amazing crinkle nose smiles!
And for awhile now she’s been standing up—when holding on to anything she can, but holding mama’s hand is definitely the sweetest!
And now time for the bath photos!
Again, I love how these capture Mia so perfectly. She’s so observant, always looking down to explore everything within reach. And of course, once that new found object is within her little hands, in the mouth it goes!
These last few remind me so much of Mia’s newborn session when she would not leave her mama’s arms. So so sweet!
Baby Mia… I will forever love you as you’ve captured my heart with your sweet smile and curious personality. I am so blessed to be able to watch you grow and honored to be able to capture all that you do with my lens. <3
Some tips for you, if you plan to totally “wing it” with your own outdoor bubble bath photos….
I really wanted to make sure the setting had the depth and wide open light to really make the bubbles shine, however this led to us having to transport many gallons of water in the trunk of a car. So preferably, having a hose nearby would have been pretty nice! 🙂
Also, make sure the water isn’t too cold… since I’m not a mama, I definitely didn’t think of that going in to this shoot so it took Mia quite some time to allow us to sit her down in the tub. Oh well, the standing photos are just as cute if not more so!
And of course, bring lots of extra bubbles for the bubble machine!
