50 Photos To Take In Baby’s First Year

50 Photos To Take In Baby's First Year |

How is it even possible that we’re coming up on Allie’s first birthday here in a couple months?! That’s just so crazy to me. They’re not lying when they say the first year goes by so quickly. It really does.

Now that we’re coming up on her first birthday, I’m looking back on the thousands of photos I’ve taken of this little girl in the last (almost) year. You constantly hear negativity surrounding millennials and how we’re all “addicted” to our phones, but in all honesty, my iPhone has captured more memories than I can list. It’s captured Allie’s first time crawling, her first trip to Disney, pumpkin picking, playtime with Jack and her daddy, and thousands of smiles and laughs. My iPhone and various memory cards for my Nikons are 95% Allie at this point and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

It can be so easy to get busy and caught up in the moment when you have little ones running around and that’s totally okay! It’s so important to be present and really soak up that time you have with your kids when they’re little. But I also find it to be so important to take a step back sometimes and snap a photo. So here are 50 photos you ‘ll want of your little one’s first year!
