Why newborn photography?

Newborn photography has become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reason. It’s a special way to capture those precious first few weeks of a baby’s life, and create lasting memories for both parents and the child. In this blog post, we’ll explore why newborn photography is important and why you should consider investing in a professional newborn photography session.

  1. Capturing a fleeting moment in time

Babies grow and change so quickly, and those first few weeks of life are especially fleeting. A professional newborn photographer can capture those moments that are gone in the blink of an eye. These images become cherished memories that can be looked back on for years to come.

  1. Creating family heirlooms

Professional newborn photography isn’t just about creating beautiful images. It’s also about creating family heirlooms that can be passed down from generation to generation. Imagine your child’s child looking at the photographs of their parent as a newborn. These images are not only special to you but can become a part of your family’s legacy.

  1. Documenting a milestone

Having a baby is a huge milestone in life, and professional newborn photography is a great way to document it. The images captured during a newborn session can be used to announce the arrival of your baby to family and friends, and even included in your baby’s scrapbook or baby book.

  1. Professional quality images

While it’s easy to take pictures on our phones, professional newborn photography provides a level of quality that is unmatched. Professional photographers have the equipment, knowledge, and experience to create images that are stunning and timeless. They know how to pose newborns safely and beautifully, and how to create images that truly capture the essence of your baby.

  1. Creating art

Professional newborn photography is not just about taking pictures. It’s also about creating art. A professional newborn photographer will use their creativity to create images that are unique and beautiful. They will use lighting, props, and poses to create images that are works of art.

In conclusion, newborn photography is important because it captures a fleeting moment in time, creates family heirlooms, documents a milestone, provides professional quality images, and creates art. It’s an investment in your family’s memories that will be cherished for years to come. So, if you’re expecting a baby, consider investing in a professional newborn photography session. You won’t regret it.

Forgot diapers or wipes?  No worries, we’ve got those too.  you don’t need to bring a thing unless you want to.

Safety and comfort of the baby is always the number one priority.  I am up to date with all latest required vaccines and take extreme care to keep the space clean and germ-free.  While I will have a workflow planned to guide your baby through a variety of poses with the least amount of disturbance, I will also take cues from the baby when they need a break for an extra snuggle or a feeding.
