Time To Sit Up! These Babies Will Melt Your Heart

Babies are capable of doing many things on their own, like learning to sit up. When your baby sits up depends a lot on your baby and how their motor skills are progressing. Scroll down for your daily dose of cuteness overload!



Sit Up! + Best Friend, Of Course

His dog is absolutely proud, look at those smiley faces. Absolutely adorable. When a baby can hold their head up and roll from front to back, sitting is definitely on the horizon. However, some babies get the crawling (army crawl) bug before the sitting bug. 

Each baby is different, but typically babies learn to sit up between 4 and 8 months, some babies take as long as 9 months to fully get it or more. It sometimes seems like your baby will never stop needing an arm to hold themselves up and then all of a sudden they are sitting up perfectly!

Look, mom! No hands!

Watching a baby figure out sitting up is wonderful to watch. Because every baby is different, there is no standard position a baby uses to sit up. 

And by the way, that’s enough sitting up for the day, he is now busy playing with his favorite toys. Happy Friday!

Baby's First Year Photo Album

Baby’s First Year Photo Album – NBP

First Year Photo Album – Part of New Beginnings Plan

Look at all the gorgeous baby’s first year photo albums going out next week!  These are part of the New Beginnings Plan (NBP) of Tracy Gabbard Photography (TGP). These albums are amazing keepsakes that will be passed down for many generations!

Can you imagine having one of these to look at of your grandparent or great grandparent? What a lifetime keepsake! Digital images are wonderful for preserving and archiving but there is NOTHING like a quality printed print, wall display or album that you can touch, see everyday and/or share with loved ones. Sitting down on the couch with your child looking through an album is an experience that uses all the senses and that is priceless.

Flipping through some digital files on a computer is different. There is not an experience associated with that. Hence the families who have their baby’s first year photo albums are so lucky! They will all sit on the couch one day and share this with their children! 

Please visit TGP’s New Beginnings Plan (NBP) which includes Newborn Session, Sitting up Session, First Birthday Session and this lovely photo album. TGP will hand pick photos from each session for your baby’s first year album to create his/her 1st year story.  You can see some video samples by clicking on albums

If you have any question about the album, or want to join NBP, click on Contact Tracy to send your query or message.

Babies on the Move – Sitting Up Child Photography

Babies on the Move! These little crawlers were on the move in the TGP studio! I love that with the New Beginnings Plan we can capture each stage of babies first year. Crawling is a big milestone and the New Beginnings Plan helps capture that for families!

TGP Style – White on White

TGP Style White on White – it is my very favorite color!  

I am always drawn to white in my portraits. To me, it is so beautiful, simple, clean and classic. In my eyes it represents a modern yet timeless look that captures the simplicity of a baby, child or family.

The Tracy Gabbard Photography studio is WHITE and it captures the light beautifully. White makes the baby, child or family “pop” because they become the color, they become the focus, they become the memory.  Not the surroundings around them.

So in celebration of “white” 🙂 here are some of the many white on white images that I have been lucky enough to capture!


Handsome Little Guy (Baby Photographer Tampa)

Baby Photographer Tampa I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly cute this little guy was in the studio. As a Baby Photographer in Tampa, I love seeing how big the babies have grown since their newborn session. This cutie had his newborn session done with Tracy Gabbard Photography and came back for his sitting up session. He loved interacting with the camera and gave some of the sweetest poses. Although he wasn’t crazy about keeping his hat on,  I was even able to get a few kissy faces from him towards the end of his session. What a doll! Can’t wait for his First birthday session!! 🙂 Baby Photographer Tampa

(Baby Photographer Tampa) Happy Baby girl!

Baby Photographer Tampa This super cute baby was so fun and playful during her session. As a Baby photographer in Tampa, it was so fun to see how much this little one had grown since I photographed her newborn session.  Mom brown a shell prop that was used in her newborn session that we were able to use in this sitting up session. This super happy baby girl gave me so many smiles! We were even able to get sweet Mommy and me photos that I know Mom will treasure forever! Can’t wait to photograph her first birthday session!
