Plan Your Baby Moments {Baby’s First Year}

by Mrs. BWF on July 7, 2014

I recently posted about this new rad camera Canon sent me. Check it out here. I am an iPhone picture taker, but having this on hand has been a game changer!

Canon Canada is releasing a new app to help parents capture sweet memories of baby’s first year! This time is such a flies by so quickly, that it’s easy to forget to do so. I took one look at the app suggestions and knew just what to do! I asked a bunch of local moms with adorable babies to meet up at a park so we could get the cutest baby pictures ever!

Here are some inspired by the Canon Canada app. I’m not a professional photographer and these are not edited. We just had fun with beautiful families and a Canon Rebel SL1 and 50mm lens. Not to mention, these moms are happy to have these moments captured on camera to save forever.

First steps.

Kids usually love swings! This little guy had other thoughts.

You think he’s smiling…

But don’t be fooled.

He was so mad at us, but capturing these pictures was hilarious and great!

So we tried again with this cute little one and…SUCCESS!

Oh, but first we had to wake him up. Haha, thank goodness for a fast camera so we were able to capture it.

The amount of bonding, releasing of hormones, growth and love by simply holding your baby is not only incredible, but important.

We have the dad hold.

Parenthood can be a blur and it’s hard to remember precious moments just as they are. If you can capture them, it will help you remember these sweet moments you otherwise may not (in such detail). Yes, put the phone down and soak in this time, but sometimes pick up a great camera and record the every changing first year (and beyond) of baby’s life!

What other special moments did you make sure to capture of your baby’s first year? Follow up post to come!
