I lost count of how many times we had to reschedule little Leo’s sitting up session in the studio! Between illnesses and chemo, it was quite a few! And by the time we finally got together, Leo wasn’t just sitting up, he was on the move! Even though he was a little shy at first, his personality came shining through!
We usually try to photograph this milestone before babies are crawling, but sometimes that just isn’t possible! When babies are on the move, it means more cute photos – even if it wears a mama out having to pick them up and put them back into position again and again – and again!
I just love Leo’s mischievous little grin in this next set – so cute!
The sitting up milestone is probably my favorite out of all the sessions I do, and I think these photos show why! The baby rolls, the sweet expressions, and the personality – adorable!
