Your baby’s First Birthday is a huge milestone: Issue the Tissues. Your baby won’t remember the party but having the photos to look back on will be something you cherish forever. There’s probably not going to be a year as magical as the first one in your little one’s life. I know the first year in my son’s life was the greatest year I have ever had.
You may be busy planning the decor and making sure you have the perfect Smash cake; but don’t forget about the photos you should definitely take. You want to document the memories you will have forever. Whether you hire a photographer or take the photos yourself, this list is a must for making sure you get all of the photos you want.
