Watch This Baby Grow!

My wife reads the Young House Love blog daily, and sends me links to her favorites (of which there are many!). It is written by a couple who love DIY projects. As each project develops, they talk about what they are doing, and why they are doing it. It really is a great source of information and advice.

The other day, my wife saw this post and had to share. I am so glad she did! It was all about how this couple photographed their new baby girl every week over the course of her first year (see photo below). I really liked what they did, and how they used these photos. At her first birthday party, they printed a bunch of the photos and hung them up. I was really impressed, not only with their dedication at doing this every week, but more so because it was such a simple setup, just a plain white onesie, a yard of fabric, and a camera, all setup next to a window.

It all goes to show that you don't need a fancy setup or a studio or big lights to capture the growth of your little one!

Here's a link back to the post talking about their lessons learned with this baby photo project, and how they plan to take it into their daughter's second year.
