It is universally agreed upon in the photography community that this is the best age for professional photographs in your child's life. They are still small and chubby, but definitely growing into their features. At this age they can sit up, will sometimes tolerate some lying on their back and pushing up, and almost always are agreeable to a lot of outfit changes. They haven't developed "stranger danger" yet and they don't crawl yet, so these sessions are easy and enjoyable for all of us! If you are looking for posed portraits, this age will give you the most variety and the best results.
