Why should you consider professional photos of your newborn? For me it’s an easy answer – but for my, unbiased, moms it can sometimes feel like another huge task to add to their to-do list. “Is it necessary?” “ I don’t want to get behind a camera just a few weeks postpartum.” “All the planning and getting ready sounds like a big undertaking so soon… “
But – with the right photographer you can have memorable artistic images of your newborn that you have to cherish now and for the rest of your lifetime – without the headache.
For my tips on sourcing newborn photographers near you follow this blog:
But let’s get back to the topic at hand – The why?
Now if you’re a verterned mom you know all about the blissful blur of the first few weeks and months. They really are a blur, and go by so incredibly fast. Which brings me to my first point.
Newborn photography captures your newborn in their tiny details that quickly change.
How many times have you proudly pulled out your own newborn photos to show your significant other, or your other kids, family, friends, etc. It’s especially fun to look back at old photos but those first portraits… Those are even more special.
Newborn photography provides you with family heirlooms to be treasured for multiple generations.
“I’ll just take some photos on my phone.” While you’re more than welcome to take all the candid phone photos you want, the fact of the matter is that the quality, professionalism, styling, and most importantly SAFETY behind doing a session with a trained professional newborn photographer outweighs the pros of a DIY newborn session.
Hiring a professional newborn photographer gives you quality images done safely in a professional environment dedicated to the art.
What I always tell parents who are on the fence about hiring a professional newborn photographer is to look forward to 5 years, then 10, then 20. Try picturing how much your child will change in those years. You’ll never regret having photos of the people you cherish most in life. As time moves forward the value of those images grows exponentially.
