Use these milestone cards to record your baby’s age milestones. I’ve whipped up a set of blue baby boy cards as well as a set of pink baby girl cards for you to download and print.

When my kids were bubbas I had the best of intentions to keep a baby book and write in it. Well, that lasted about three months (pretty amazing I think right?!). Then the second child came along. Poor kid, I filled in his name and that was about as far as I got!

One thing I’m never without though is my phone. And let’s face it – this generation isn’t going to be camera shy given it’s in their faces all the time! That’s why I love the concept of baby milestone cards. It’s so much quicker and easier.

You can then share on Insta and Facebook for everyone to compliment you on how amazing you are at producing seriously gorgeous kids.

What you’re getting with your free printable download

These milestone cards are available for boys in an aqua/mint green and navy. Or you can select the pink and burgundy option for your gorgeous gal.

Once you’ve downloaded your preferred colour you will have a set of fun, cards in cute modern patterns. There is a total of 18 cards, with one per page each measuring 5″ x 7″ (127mm x 178mm).

There is a space on each card to record the date as well as an area to write your babe’s name on the first card. The milestones range from birth through to 1 year of age.

Once you have your download you can print these on your home computer or take them to your local print store to have them print the cards out. You will need to print them on a thicker cardstock, at least 170 gsm although I do prefer 200 gsm for these. Even thicker than that would be fine as long as your printer is able to take a heavier card.

When it comes to cutting them out I prefer to use a paper trimmer. If however you don’t have one then regular old scissors will do the trick. I’ve also written another article to help you get the most out of your free printables.

Check out the quick video below that I recorded whilst cutting these cards.

Photographing your baby with their milestone cards

When baby is small you can place the card next to them or on their tummy. As they get older encouraging bub to grab or hold onto the milestone card looks cute and also shows their developmental stages.

It’s always nice to have a cute little face ready for the camera. But they don’t always want to play! Cranky, screaming and tantrum faces are also pretty adorable so don’t stress if it doesn’t always work out. I love this one of my son Campbell below…

Photographing newborn babies

I’m so far from being a professional photographer but a couple of other basic tips I like to follow for getting a good photo include:

  • Choosing natural lighting. Pick a room that has good, natural and diffused light. Then place your sweet little model beside it. I found my bedroom window with the morning light was always best.
  • Select a background. For small babies, blankets are perfect for this. Previously I’ve propped my kids in a baby bean bag and put a soft textured throw under them.
  • Coordinating. Consider the colour of the cards, the baby’s clothes and the background to ensure they don’t clash. Don’t forget about neutrals or textures. A nudie baby is always a cute innocent look. If you like you can place the card or some blanket over bub’s unmentionables.
  • It’s all in the angle. If you’re not a pro a great trick to remember is to keep the angles straight. What I mean is not to tilt the camera, move your body if you need to.
  • Click, click, click. Take as many photos as you can! I always like to capture close-ups and others with a good amount of background. Even when you think you have enough background, go for more. I’ve been caught out so many times with this.

I hope you get so much out of these cards, I had so much fun creating them for you. As I’m writing this I am actually humbled by the fact that for decades to come you and your family will be looking over those precious moments. And within them are these cards to help record those milestones.

I would love to know how you got along with your photo shoot, drop me a comment below! Share your photo on Instagram with the hashtag #avmfreebies or tag me @avisualmerriment on Facebook.
