OK, so you may have ticked off the first step, first holiday and first family photo, but there are so many equally precious moments coming up now your little one’s a fully-fledged toddler – and you absolutely have to capture each and every one. Hello new Facebook album…
The walking solo photo
You thought that first step was a big deal but walking confidently on his own is definitely a proud parent moment – so don’t forget to take a photo. [Corbis]
The Christmas morning photo
Clad in a suitably festive get-up and surrounded by presents, that precious ‘It’s Christmas!’ expression on your tot’s face is not one you’ll want to forget. [Corbis]
The second birthday photo
Just like you captured your baby’s first birthday, don’t forget to take a few good snapshots at her second big day… and every one after that, too. [Corbis]
The big sibling photo
The day your baby becomes a big brother is a big deal. And you’re guaranteed an amazing photo of your two children meeting for the first time. [Corbis]
The bike riding photo
You absolutely have to photograph your toddler’s first bike ride – nothing will beat that huge smile on his face and you’ll want to look back on it in years to come. [Corbis]
The baking photo
OK, so this photo may focus more on the comedy value of your toddler coated in flour/sugar/chocolate rather than his baking endeavors, but it’s a must in his baby book. [Corbis]
The snowman building photo
We’ve all been photographed standing proudly next to a minuscule snowman – and your toddler needs the same pic to look back on.
The puddle jumping photo
You’ll want to get a real action shot here – it may take a few attempts but the end result will be so worth it. [Corbis]
The Halloween photo
You probably always thought Halloween was a bit of a silly holiday until you saw how utterly adorable your toddler looked dressed in her costume. [Corbis]
The silly face photo
Your toddler will probably have a whole collection of silly facial expressions, so get snapping away whenever one makes an appearance. [Corbis]
The pre-first haircut photo
You’ll never get those baby curls back, so make sure you take a picture… [Corbis]
The post-first haircut photo
… But he will look oh-so-sweet with his near new ‘do. [Corbis]
The favourite toy photo
Your tot will love looking back at this snapshot when she’s older. Guaranteed she’ll have completely forgotten about her fascination with her giant teddy bear. [Corbis]
The swimming photo
Capture the moment your little one masters the art of doggy paddle for the first time – with the help of some armbands of course. [Corbis]
The playdate photo
There’s nothing cuter than that pic of your toddler surrounded by all of his friends. Don’t worry about getting them to pose – it’ll be so much cuter if you take an action shot. [Corbis]
