Are you expecting a baby this September? September is the month with the highest birth rate (I wonder if that could be related to the fact it’s around nine months after the festive season!) so it’s my busiest time of the year! My September will be filled with lots of gorgeous babies like these - More details of my newborn sessions can be found HERE
I thought it was a great time to pull together some September baby fun facts. Feel free to share them with any mums who are due this September:
The birthstone for September is the sapphire, which symbolises purity and wisdom. Sapphires are also thought to ease pain and reduce stress - perhaps you should take one into the delivery room with you!
Your baby will either be a Virgo (August 24 - September) or a Libra (September 23 - October 23)
The birth flowers for September are the Aster and the Morning Glory. Asters are symbols of love and Morning Glories are symbols of affection
Studies suggest that September babies excel at school - could this be related to the fact they’re the oldest in their school year.
September babies also excel in sports - again this could be related to the fact they’re the oldest, and therefore the strongest, in their school year.
September babies are statistically more likely to live to be 100 than babies born in other months!
Celebrities with September birthdays include Beyonce, will Smith, Keanu Reeves and Prince Harry.
If your baby is due in September, you’ll want to make sure you already have their newborn portrait session booked before they arrive. September is my busiest month of the year! Find out more about my newborn portrait sessions here
