Monthly Baby Photos – Inspiration, Tips & Tricks

During the first year of my Son’s life, my Husband and I decided to document the year in a monthly photo journal. Since Pinterest is like my second home, I already knew that there were tons of parents out there who were also documenting their baby’s monthly journey through photos, but I never found a blog post or article where they ALL were located. With that being said, I decided to compile ALL of the monthly milestone photos we took of our Son into one post to give all you parents out there some inspiration. Almost all the photos were themed, from Valentine’s Day to The Incredibles to even Harry Potter, we really tried to get creative with them…plus I cannot resist a theme! I am also happy to report that all of these photos did not break the bank and most of the time we used what we had in our home to create them. So come with me on this journey and lets count down starting from my Son’s 1st Birthday!

For all the photos we used a felt letter board, which you can purchase here. We also used the white rug in my Son’s Nursery, which you can purchase here.
