When Belle’s mama brings along the perfect dress and bonnet that matches our vintage pram 👌😍🙌 We loved making some special memories for this family. This was a shot from Belle’s 100 day old shoot. It’s a Chinese tradition to have your baby photographed at this time. She was so inquisitive watching my every move. Why 100 days?
One hundred days is an arbitrary number that was chosen for the following reasons:
It was believed that a child’s immune system was poor before 100 days, so newborn babies were kept indoors for 100 days.
Infant mortality rates were high, especially for babies under three months of age, so if a child survived 100 days, it was a cause for celebration.
One hundred days roughly translates to three months, which marks the baby’s “fourth trimester”, or full year!
So interesting don’t you think? #100dayshoot #100daysold #chinese #chinesetradition #photographer #hampshirebabyphotography #babyphotographer #babyexpert #bringmeyourbabies ❤️#julieadavisphotography #chinesebaby #china100 #photography
