Why is it so important to get photographs of your newborn?

Why is it so important to get photographs of your newborn?

Just ask any parent and they will tell you time moves by so quickly when you have a new baby. One minute they’re born and then within the blink of an eye you’re celebrating their 1st birthday (which is the perfect time to book me in again for a cake smash!). It’s this first year that they change so dramatically, growing and forming features that will be with them for their entire life. This is why it’s so important to take these special photographs; if you don’t, it’s can be so hard to remember the little details when life is flashing by so quickly.

How tiny their little hands and feet were, how they looked up and you, their delicate little eyelashes, they way they clench their little fists and all the other things that are just so magical.

My newborn photo sessions will provide you with memories that will last you a lifetime. The session is very relaxed and we can make sure that all of those little details are captured for you to love and cherish.

Print your photos

Once you’ve had your photo session, you will also receive beautiful printed enlargements of your favourite images. My prints are of a professional quality guaranteed to last for over a 100 years. Not only can you put your favourite picture on the wall and enjoy it every day, but you’ll be able to enjoy sharing those special details of your newborn for many years to come. Have you ever been given or shown an old photograph of yourself when you were young? It probably left you with a warm glow and feeling of joy. You can’t get that feeling with a digital file.

As I have previously mentioned, I will soon be moving back to Melbourne, Australia in November and I will be specialising in newborn photography there. If you are expecting and would like a baby photoshoot of your little one (or would like to gift a voucher to a loved one), please don’t hesitate to get in touch.  I’d love to meet you and your family there soon!
