Preserving Precious Memories with a Newborn Photoshoot

Your baby is only a newborn for a few short weeks and if we’re being honest, we’re usually too tired to really remember those days. 3 AM feedings and 5 AM diaper changes don’t do much to help the old memory banks store up visions of those tiny toes and wrinkly smiles. 

A professional newborn photoshoot is an essential part of your baby’s early photo archive. Not only will it capture all the sweet moments of your little one’s first few weeks, but it’ll also give you some great shots to use for baby announcements, birth announcements, and more. If you’re not sure if you need one or not, here are a few reasons why:


Newborn Photoshoot

#1 Newborn Photoshoot Safety

A professional newborn photographer knows how to keep your newborn safe while taking photos. Even though they are just babies, newborns can be fussy and require plenty of patience from the photographer. During your session the photographer will take caution with special props designed to make your baby safe and comfortable during photos. They’ll also have weighted lights and safety measures on their camera to avoid any risk. These are things the average parent doesn’t realize goes into a newborn photoshoot.

#2 Perfect Props for your Pictures

Ever wonder how a professional photographer makes those newborn photoshoot look so stunning? Surprise! It’s special props! We purchase a selection of props, pillows, and cloth to create a safe and beautiful environment that makes your newborn look natural in those adorable little poses. Your session comes with a choice of prop scenes to create the look you’re going for.

#3- Newborn Photos are a Keepsake

Any new parent will immediately tell you that the dark circles under their eyes are not the latest trend in fashion. Being a parent to a new baby is exhausting. And let’s be honest. It’s hard to remember what you ate for breakfast yesterday after a full night’s rest. Now, imagine you’re on life’s greatest adventure with NO sleep…how are you going to remember those tiny toes and adorable noses? A newborn photoshoot can help capture this time so you can look back when you have a little more rest and remember it. 

#4- The Newborn Stage Flies By

Your baby is only a newborn for a few weeks…about 3 to be exact. And then we start counting the months. Little ones change so much during those first few weeks it’s hard to keep up. That’s why preserving those cute little wrinkles and soft coos is so important. And even the most admiring dad isn’t going to do justice to your new addition like a professional can. (I know you’ve seen the awkward photos he gets of you mid-bite of that pizza….) A newborn photoshoot will preserve every detail that disappears so quickly.

#5- A Professional Takes Care of the Details

Ever see those #fail side by side photos of what somebody saw on Pinterest and then tried to recreate? Imagine trying to do that with your newborn photos. In fact, I think I saw one once with a baby in a toy dumptruck labeled “Nailed It”. They did NOT nail it. 

A professional newborn photoshoot provides the adorable props you don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on, some cute wraps or outfits, a trained pro who knows how to calm and pose your little tot AND the professional editing to make those annoying little pimples disappear.

Why Do You Need a Newborn Photoshoot?

In conclusion, you need a newborn photoshoot to document and preserve these fleeting moments before they disappear forever..not even into your memory…(thanks lack of sleep). Trusting a professional newborn photographer to capture this part of your family legacy will allow you to sleep a bit easier (we hope) knowing you can look back on these treasured memories forever.
