I think it’s a beautiful idea!  Go for it! I could imagine a breathtaking backdrop (mountain) and your sweet little one wandering in a field of flowers..

My bil & sil live in CO, at about 5k elevation, and they’re always taking photos of their little guy (he’s 1 1/2 yrs old) everywhere!  Great outside pics of him.

@Mrs. DG:I do not know the area at all but I think it is a wonderful idea and very doable! Plus what a memory and tradition to have! I know it can be done bc my friend here in Ohio is a wonderful photographer and she does location shoots. She’ll follow families around getting their Christmas trees, she followed one family around just strolling through a historic village antique shopping and such. So there are photographers out there who do this and its becoming more popular than doing posed shots in a studio.

I think thats a great idea, i am sure your little one will appreciate the pictures when she is older and can look back on all of the places she has been.

Do they allow weddings there?  Maybe find someone that got married there and would recommend their photog???  I think it would be great!

I don’t see why not! A lot of photogs will do on site portriate sessions! I think it’ll be super cute to have a book of photos from each year at the same local! My parents took a pic of me when I was a baby at south of the border in SC, and when I was older and went back, we took another one in the same place. It’s cool to be able to look back on that when she’s older!

I think that is a cool idea however, Yellowstone is a huge park and with so many attractions you might be better off doing it yourself for pictures.  The view there is so breath taking you can easily get great pictures yourself.  That and the more well known attractions such as Old Faithful there gets to be a lot of people. 

Fiance and I went out there a year and half ago and just using my digital SLR I got some breathtaking pictures.

ETA: one of the pictures I took out there

Do it!  DG, that would be beautiful and such a cool way to commemorate Ceci growing up.  🙂  Where in Yellowstone are you going?  I might know a couple photographers who you would be interested in on the Montana side (and my husband says he might know someone in Jackson Hole).

Also, what a neat way to celebrate Ceci’s birthday!  I love this idea!

I love the National Parks birthdays idea!  And I don’t think it should be difficult to find photographers based out of Jackson.  It’s such a gorgeous area they swarm the place.  The craigslist for the area is pretty crappy (it covers the entire state) but it might be worth posting an ad if google doesn’t give you much.  Also, I believe Mrs. Espresso is living there now.  She might be able to help you out.

What an awesome idea! I wanna see more parks than I have. SO and I were just talking today about how glad we are that someone thought preserving land into national parks would be a good idea–thanks Teddy Roosevelt!

It could be expensive hiring a photographer especially if you go to more remote national parks – Yellowstone might be fairly easy because it is such a toursit spot.


Have fun at the parks- I ADORE Glacier. Also, Grand Teton is AMAZING if you haven’t been there and it is right next to Yellowstone. I loved it more than Yellowstone – just a thought.
