Fifteen Months Old (Eleanor's Monthly Photo)

(I’ll be taking a photo of Eleanor sitting in the Eames rocker and wearing her pin each month until she’s two years old.)

    Oh, this photo is so cute! And her hands reach out seem to say… “mommy” :) A lot of babies I know seem to be going through the “mommy only” phase this age. Or maybe she’s just saying “get me off this chair?” haha. Either way she’s adorable.

    Do you think you’ll do yearly photos once she reaches two? It’s just too cute to stop :)

      She was reaching out to be picked up by daddy here!

      And I do plan to keep the photographs going, but they’ll be yearly after she turns two.

    This was such a wonderful idea. I love looking at the older photos and seeing how much she’s grown.

    Nicole, I just had to pop in and say that I was inspired by you to start my own monthly photo project with my new little one – I have so enjoyed seeing Eleanor grow over the past year and a half, and I am really looking forward to having my own keepsake!

    Absolutely adorable! She is so cute and big. Quick question, how do you manage to take just the right size of photo and how do you put all your pictures so perfectly together? What program do you use ( the pictures don’t lose their sharpness)? They look beautiful and the best idea ever. Thanks!

    Lovely little girl!

    I’m a photographer, so take this FWIW, but there is a lot of C/A going on in the photos–you might want to knock your ISO down to get rid of it–see all those spotty colors on the wood floor under your sofa?

    Just a tip! :o)

    I just LOVE this little badge – Ive seen a bunch of month-by-month photos, but I like the little button/badge you made the best. I just made a set for a friend for her baby shower with a matching photo album…. hope she likes them ;) Thanks for the idea!
