While pregnancy can often feel like it’s dragging on forever, once you meet your newborn, the first year will fly by faster than you could have ever imagined. One minute you’re cradling a tiny baby and the next, they’re a busy toddler taking their first steps and inquisitive about the outside world.

Photography allows us to capture all those precious moments and relive them again and again, bringing the emotion you felt to life. So before time gets away from you, make a list of all those milestones and fleeting memories not to miss in your baby’s first stages of life.

Here are 15 photos to capture during your newborn’s first year:
