If you remember back to November… you might recall a photo I posted here of Baby M from an in-house photo shoot. Well, the reason I didn’t post more photos from that day is because it was all part of a bigger plan: a 2011 Baby M Calendar!
Now you’d think I’d take the easy road and just use pictures from the past year to create a calendar? Oh heck no! I’d make it crazy difficult and actually stage a photo shoot in our house using our console table and a white IKEA bed sheet with 12 DIFFERENT outfits for Baby M to wear. And I’d do it all on one day… a day where Mr. M was away so it was just me and the baby. Oh yeah…
Now what drove me to do such a thing? Well, those amazing people at Minted.com came up with some really cute calendar designs, and I just knew it was the perfect gift for Grandparents and Great-Grandparents alike! And I had gotten quite a few too many wonderful outfits from the Gymboree sample sale (thank you thank you thank you Jade!) so I figured this was the perfect way to immortalize the cute and pretend to be a stylist for a day.
So do you want to see the rest of the photos? Ah ok… here you go!
AUGUST (Memphis’ Birthday month)
There you have it!
And just to relieve you all… I will not be going into any sort of job as a toddler/baby photographer’s assistant any time soon. My arms and abs killed so much after laying on my stomach and then crawling to pick up a baby escaping the camera frame. And I dare you to guess which month’s photos were taken right before naps? :)
