In my mind, I had a much more elaborate shoot I wanted to do for Oliver's 6 month photos. I wanted to go outside and find a place with some trees and green grass (we live in Arizona...where most people have rocks for yards). I had some ideas for props but of course didn't have any of them on hand.
As his half birthday quickly approached however, I realized, the absolute best photos you can have, are the photos that get taken. These are not perfect. I literally just took his decorations off the wall, set him next to them and started shooting. We had so much going on that month and it was either this mini shoot that took about 5 minutes while his sisters were preoccupied and baby was happy or a shoot that didn't happen on time or maybe at all. I love them. I love the simplicity of them. And I love that I have photos of my six month old precious little guy to cherish. Maybe I can try the other idea for his 1 year photos.
