Why You Should Never Wait to Take Newborn Photos


"Why You Should Never Wait to get professional Newborn Photos"

If you're a new parent, you may be wondering if professional newborn photos are worth the money. After all, you can just take some pictures of your baby yourself, right? WRONG.

If you wait until your baby is a few months old, they may not be as cooperative during the session. It’s always best to get it done while they’re still small and sleepy!

Here are some reasons why you should never wait to get professional newborn photos:

  • Newborns change so quickly. It's hard to believe, but those tiny toes and that perfect little nose won't stay the same for long. If you want to remember what your baby looked like at this exact moment in time, professional photos are a must.

  • Newborn photo sessions are usually done when the baby is between 5-21 days old. This is because they still have their natural "newborn curl" and tend to sleep a lot during this time period. If you wait too long, you may miss your window of opportunity and really doesn't work with older children or adults.

  • A professional photographer can capture the details that you might miss. They know how to focus on the small details, like the baby’s hands and feet. They also know how to use lighting and angles to create beautiful images.

When should you book a newborn photographer?

If you're considering booking a newborn photographer, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First, newborns grow and change quickly, so it's important to book a session within the first two weeks of your baby's life. Booking this when you are pregnant is key.

Why professional photos are worth the investment

When it comes to capturing your children growing up, there are many factors to consider. Cost is often a deciding factor for parents when choosing whether or not to invest in professional photos. However, there are several reasons why professional newborn or time-to-grow photos are worth the investment.

  • First, professional photographers have the experience and knowledge to capture high-quality images. They know how to work with lighting and angles to create beautiful portraits.

  • Second, they have access to the best equipment. This means that they can provide parents with prints that are of the highest quality.

Finally, professional photographers take the time to get to know their clients and their vision for the shoot. This results in photos that truly capture the personality of the newborn and their family. For these reasons, professional newborn photos are definitely worth the investment.

  • Even as your little one gets older it's great to capture these moments you can look back and see how much they have grown and enjoy the moments you have captured. Trying to capture these moments when you are older doesn't always look the same.
