Why Book Your Baby For A Newborn Photoshoot

For me, photography is all about capturing incredible milestones and the emotions of these crucial points throughout your family’s life. As having a baby marks the beginning of a new stage in your life, it is one of the most precious times that must be celebrated and documented. By photographing the arrival of your newborn baby you are capturing fleeting moments and marking this cherished milestone.

What I always find amazing about newborns is that a few weeks ago they were still inside their mums tummy. Its incomprehensible that this little living breathing human was fully formed and all curled up inside and now here they are. How on earth did they fit in, is what always crosses my mind! I love capturing your baby all curled up like they were in your tummy in newborn shots as its a beautiful way to first document the start of their amazing lives.

In years to come your child will no longer need the expensive pram that you bought, nor will they require the cot or mountains of cute babies grows. In the future you’ll be able to sit down with them, show them these precious images and share your amazing memories of how you felt at the time they entered the world. This is why newborn photography is so important as a there is nothing more valuable than being able to show your child just how much they are loved and have been loved, right from the beginning.

It’s such an easy phase to miss as you blink and its passed. You’ve just arrived home with your new tiny baby, no idea how to cope yet, overwhelmed, tired and of course hugely in love. Time flies when you’re having fun, but even more so when you’re in love and you’re so sleep deprived!

Your little newborn baby is so unbelievably tiny and you won’t believe how quickly they will change. Their sweet little face starts to evolve, they begin to stretch out their tiny bodies and they become more alert by the day. Often parents remark when they come back for their viewing gallery just how much their little one has changed already! It’s so wonderful to be able to remember how tiny they were and how easily they’d fit in your arms. Also, their gorgeous little features from their tiny button nose, little curled up fingers to their cute little dimples.

During those first weeks, you’re the most exhausted you’ve ever been so it’s so easy to forget to take the time to appreciate this precious stage of their lives. My newborn sessions allow you to have the time to sit back, relax and enjoy the photoshoot by just appreciating the amazing little human you have created. Many parents remark on what a relaxing and enjoyable experience it was coming for a newborn photoshoot.

The final reason why you should book a newborn photoshoot is regret! I hear far too often from parents that they regret never having newborn photos taken when their baby was first born. In the whirlwind that was the first year of their babies life, they have grown so fast and changed so much. All they have to remember it is a couple of blurry photos on their phone that they haven’t printed and no photos that include them!

This is a once in a lifetime chance that you’ll never get back. Photographs are there forever to remind us of this precious time and to show our children in the future how special they are to us. Being able to capture the time when they were curled up on your chest or sleeping sweetly in your arms and displaying it as beautiful works of art on the walls of your home will remind them how precious they are to you.

If you’re thinking about booking a newborn photoshoot and would like some more information, please get in touch. It’s ideal to book your newborn session whilst you’re still pregnant to allow me to accommodate your due date in my diary. However if you’ve already had your baby, do get in touch as I may have some last minute availability.
