What an amazing change in your life, whether it is your first baby, your last or somewhere in between. With such a big change, life starts to move, ever so fast, as the planning for this little life begins as well. We wish the best for our little one. Nights laying awake wondering if the crib sheets will be exactly perfect or if the diapers you are stocking up will be gentle on the skin. You wonder who they will look like and who they will grow up to be. Experiencing that new life is so incredible.
With a baby on the way, there is so much that divides your attention and wallet. The doctor, the hospital, the crib, the clothes, diapers, everything. All so necessary to take care of this small, dependent human. So, many might find themselves caught up in the chaos and wondering “should we book a newborn photographer?”
Well, here are 5 reasons, you need to book a newborn photographer. Share away with your husbands – Your baby is worth it!
1.FOR THE EMOTIONAL STABILITY OF MOMMY.
Let’s face it, every expecting mommy WANTS newborn portraits. It’s so tough to pass on this seemingly frivolous expense – but with all those lovely, raging hormones, it’s possible to keep our sanity with a photographer booked and ready.
2. TO STOP THE PAIN OF REGRET.
I have never heard a client regret GETTING pictures taken. In fact, sadly, I have heard lots of regrets about not getting them. There will come a time when your grandchildren are gathered at your knees and you will want to pick up an album and go through the pages with them. I promise this moment will happen and the bills will have all been paid and long gone. The cribs donated to the new mommy down the road and the stroller tossed after long years. It’s the albums and the portraits that are left to enjoy.
3. GENEALOGY AND HERITAGE.
We are a generation of picture-takers. Technology has been a blessing to our lives but it has been to our detriment as well. I want my children to have pictures of me and I want my grandchildren to have pictures of my children. My great-grandchildren to have pictures of my grandchildren. A beautiful timeline of our history and lives are in these images. Once you begin to look at these as bigger than the moment, they become invaluable.
4. THAT’S ALL THAT’S LEFT.
These images are the only thing we can take with us on our journey of life. On the day after your wedding, you have two things left, a husband and your photos and they had better both be good – well, this goes the same for newborn photography.
5. BECAUSE EVERYONE WANTS TO SEE!
Ok, I’ve had a couple of heartfelt thoughts above but this one will feed your ego! When you look at your new baby, you see imperfect perfection. You see his chubby cheeks and her little nose. You see your world begins to spin around this child. And you want everyone to see. You love the comments pouring in, you love the likes and the hearts. I know you do so contact us today to visit our studios!
I ENCOURAGE YOU, IF YOU ARE EXPECTING, GIVE YOUR BABY THE GIFT OF THESE IMAGES. THEY REALLY AREN’T FOR YOU AND THE NOW EXPENSE WILL FADE AS YOUR PORTRAITS GROW INVALUABLE.
IF YOU HAVE A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER EXPECTING, TELL THEM HOW MUCH YOUR IMAGES MEAN TO YOU.
