6 Month Milestone {Baby Photography | Family Photography}

I had the pleasure to spend part of a lovely Saturday working with this gorgeous family. When they asked me if they could be my first clients, of course I couldn't resist!

The occasion? Nothing less than the little man, George, celebrating his 6 Month Milestone! Happy 1/2 Birthday, George!

He is such a cutie! Every time I turned around with the camera, he had a big smile and lots of giggles for me. I couldn't help but laugh when we handed him a big letter "G" - and he LOVED it! He held it and gummed on it, which kept him busy enough to get an adorable shot.

The whole family was so much fun - there was lots of laughs and smiles in between the nap times.

We had this fun idea to put a tie on the little guy. He wasn't too thrilled about it, but it made for some sweet photographs.

He also tried on a hilarious fur hat, and he hated it! But thankfully his Daddy made him feel a little better about the situation.

Towards the end of the shoot, George's Aunt came over for some photos. The little guy was very festive - he even wore his "I <3 My Auntie" onesie for her!

The two sisters were so cute together! What a pretty family.

I'm so thankful for the wonderful opportunity to photograph this fun family and of course the little man's big 1/2 year mark! Stay your cute and fun little self, Geoge!

First post! How exciting. Well, I guess I'll start off with an introduction - my name is Chelsea Magruder and I'm a graphic designer and budding photographer located in Omaha, Nebraska (well, at least for now!).

In November 2011 I was blessed to become a Mom to my amazing son. I have a degree in graphic design and had always wanted to pursue photography, and finally I had the best incentive ever - a baby  to document and preserve all those wonderful moments. All those little firsts - from his first days to his first bath, giggle, smile, and laugh.

After realizing that I enjoy photography just as much as graphic design, friends and family started asking me to photograph their own families - and a budding photographer was born.

I decided to start this blog to share and talk about my experiences with photography and design. Why not, right? I always enjoy perusing others' blogs that discuss these same things, so who knows - the stuff I share on here might interest you, too!
