The first year of a baby’s life is an incredible one, full of lots of changes and developmental milestones. The start of this first year generally starts of with a professional newborn photo shoot at our Torrance photography studio – to document the baby at the beginning of all of these changes to come. When photographing these new little babies, one of the pictures that is often requested is a photo of the babies eyes open. The reason for this is obvious: it’s cute to see their brand new eyes as well as to document their color. Capturing a picture of the color their eyes start out is interesting, since over the next year the color will change into the color they will permanently become.

When do Babies’ Eye Color Change?

According to Baby Center “Caucasian babies are often born with steel gray or dark blue eyes; they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time they’re 9 months old. That’s because a child’s irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after she’s born, but they won’t get “lighter” or more blue.” Therefore, at about nine months of age, you can feel confident that the color eyes your baby has is the color that they will stay.

Although most babies are born with those dark gray-blues eyes – can you guess what the rarest eye color is? “Green eye color is the rarest color found around the world, and it is estimated that only around 2% of the world’s population has green colored eyes. Green eye color is a result of a mild amount of pigmentation in the eye with a golden tint.” AC Lens
