Most people don’t hesitate to spend thousands of dollars on their wedding photos and with good reason—your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and you’ll be grateful to have photos of it to look back on.
But there are other days in your life and marriage that are just as important, if not more so. The birth of your first child is a huge change for your family and for you and your partner as a couple. From the moment you first hold your child in your arms, your world will never be the same. Here are the 5 reasons why you should go for a newborn photography session.
Just like your wedding, you should take time to capture images of your child at their smallest. Photos offer a way to hold on to memories for the rest of your life, and newborn photos is a perfect first gift to your new child—and a gift you’ll appreciate as well.
I’ve never met a person who regretted having photos of a major life event. More often, what I hear is, “I wish I had photos!” A newborn photography session may seem unnecessary, especially when your life has changed so much and you feel overwhelmed, but I promise you will never regret it. Babies grow so fast—you’ll be surprised how much your little one will change in just a few weeks. Newborn photos will allow you to look back and remember when they were unbelievably small.
Newborn photography session have to be taken when your baby is less than 10 days old. That means you have a very small window in which to have a photo shoot. If your family photos don’t turn out like you want, you can have a reshoot, and even your baby’s one-year photos are not on a super strict timeline. But newborn photos are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you don’t want to miss.
Did you ever look at photos of your parents or grandparents as children? It’s so fun to see how much you or your other family members look them and to get a sense of where you come from. Future generations will appreciate having photos to look back on, which is a great reason to document every major moment of your family’s life.
You may think you’ll remember every detail of your child’s life, but how much about your wedding have you already forgotten? Photos are what remains when our memories fail and when we’re gone. One day, photos will be all you have to remember how small your kids once were—and how special that moment in your life.
