The birth of your child whether your first or fourth baby, is an incredible moment in any parent’s life. One that deserves to be captured by having a newborn photo session. Babies grow and change so quickly, you may be surprised how quickly your little one becomes a toddler and barely resembles the sleepy newborn you held in your arms those first few weeks of their life.
Looking back at when my daughter was born 30 years ago there weren’t newborn photographers or 26 years ago when my son was born. Had some photographers specialized in newborn portraits back then I would have LOVED to have those photos of my children. Now that my daughter is a mom, I know she would have loved to have those first memories of herself. We would have loved to share them with her two daughters today. There’s only that one chance to capture those first memories then it’s gone.
That’s why newborn photography is so incredibly important—it allows you to capture and hold on to an incredibly fleeting moment.
We all like to know where we came from. Have you ever looked through an old family album and tried to determine which relatives you look most like? Chances are your future children and grandchildren will want to do the same! While it may not seem like a big deal right now, it’s important to capture your life as you live it for future generations to look back on. Your family tree is more than a list of names—it’s features and personalities, what makes each of you unique, and that’s worth holding onto.
I’ve never heard anyone say, “I wish I didn’t have these photos,” but I’ve heard tons of parents say, “I wish I’d taken more photos.” We never regret capturing memories. What we regret are the memories we let pass without trying to hang onto them.
Our memories fade with time, and the power of photography is it allows us to freeze the little moments that are so special to us and look back on them for years to come. Photos serve as a reminder of the life we’ve lived and the love we’ve shared. While you may regret skipping out on newborn photos, I promise you’ll never regret having those images.
Even if you don’t regularly take family photos or capture images of your kids, it’s never too late to start! Newborn photos are a great way to commit to taking regular photos of your children and capturing their growth. It can be so fun to look back and see how your child has changed over the years, from their newborn photos to their first birthday and beyond.
Albums and wall art can become family heirlooms that you pass down to your kids when they’re all grown up. These products can stay in your family for generations and become important memories of your family’s history. That’s why we always recommend that parents purchase print products and albums in addition to digital images. High-quality products last for decades!
Grandparents, friends, relatives—chances are everyone is clamoring to see photos of the new addition to your family. A newborn session is a perfect opportunity to get high-quality, professional images that you can share with your loved ones no matter where they are, whether in prints or products or even in digital images. Why not give the people what they want? And what parent doesn’t want to show off their child?
