Even compared to most new moms, Rosie Maxhimer leads a very busy life.
When she's not chasing after her 1-year-old daughter Annabelle, Maxhimer is working as a stylist or capturing her life for her mommy blog The Sweet Mama Life. That involves showing off her daughter's milestones and life with husband Robert, as well as some impressive crafts.
As Maxhimer admits, Michaels is a "very close friend" to her, and she worried that looking after her new baby girl wouldn't leave time for crafts. To include her daughter in her hobby, Maxhimer planned a special twist on the monthly newborn photos that are so popular on social media.
Each month, Maxhimer captures her daughter growing up in front of a special backdrop she made herself. As you can see, the new mom gets very creative with her baby photos.

Wanting to keep her project from growing out of control, Maxhimer put a tight budget of $20 on each photo.
To keep costs low, Maxhimer turned her house into a "fun scavenger hunt," turning towels and blankets into clouds, and sweaters into trees. Sometimes Maxhimer was able to throw a photo shoot together for absolutely nothing. Plus, the project was a great way to bond with Annabelle.
“I had a crafty outlet, and she thought it was hilarious the way I would jump around above her making various animal sounds to get a reaction or smile out of her,” Maxhimer told Babble.
Maxhimer says she wishes she could keep the photo series going even longer, but pretty soon she'll have another little one to take photos of. Annabelle's younger sibling is expected later this month.
Hopefully Maxhimer will come up with ideas for these two to pose together, because that would be too cute!
