Welcoming a baby into your family is such an exciting, but hectic time in your life. It means making time to take care of this new little person that needs so much of your time and attention. Sleep is a thing of the past, unsoiled clothing is a luxury and ’round the clock feedings seem to be never-ending. The good news this phase doesn’t last forever. The bad news is also that it doesn’t last for long!
A newborn baby is considered “newborn” in the photography industry for a short 2 weeks after birth (longer if they are born before their due date), but the point is you have a short window in which to preserve this important time in your baby’s life. Sadly, you probably won’t remember every little detail of your baby as memory fades over time. Like the sheer tininess of your baby, or the milk bumps on their face, maybe even a stork bite or angel kiss birthmark that fade over time. It might be their tiny little fingers and toes, or maybe even the freshness of their skin flaking. These are the things I want to preserve for you so these memories will last your lifetime.
I hear moms say all the time that they shouldn’t get newborn photos for their 2nd child because they never had them done with their first child. My answer to this is, Why shortchange yourself? Why shortchange your family for the new memories that could be preserved? Your first child might not have newborn photos and the past cannot be changed, but you get to chance to record their joy and excitement of becoming a big sister or big brother! That is something worth memorializing in your family history! Newborn Photography hasn’t always been around in the form that it is now, so let go of the guilt and preserve what memories are here now to be captured! Here are some tips to help narrow down your search.
I recommend booking your newborn session while you are still pregnant in order to ensure a spot on my calendar. Due to the short time frame newborns need to be photographed in order to get those sleepy and dreamy poses, you may not be able to get in once the baby is born. PLUS, if you book your maternity and newborn sessions together, then you get a special bonus. Inquire now for further details and lets get your free no-obligation consultation set up at my studio.
