Tips for Baby's First Birthday Photos

In just a few months, when the sun is shining brighter, birds are trilling us awake in the morning and early spring blooms have started to, well, bloom, our family has two rather significant events to celebrate. This May,  two of our adorable grandchildren will be entering the second year of life and birthday extravaganzas are already in the making.

Our younger daughter, mom of a tiny celebrant, is big on themes. Every party must have one and after convincing her big sister of this when she was hosting a bridal shower a few years back, it has since been the norm for every occasion these two plan.  You are My Sunshine was the focus of our older granddaughter's first-birthday bash a couple of summers ago while her brother, a tow-headed, blue-eyed wonder born May 5, will be having — what else —  a Cinco de Mayo partido.

Their cousin, Sweet Adelaide will be the guest of honour a week later at an "Oh, the Places You'll Go" bash.

It's fun really. Everything from the colour scheme for decorations, to the cake and invitations, are created or chosen to match the theme. It all makes for great photos too.  Not everyone, though, has the budget to hire a professional for the day. Here then are some tips to help you get wonderful pictures of your favourite little one's first milestone:
