I know that we all think at some point, “I should really book a professional photography session” but then we list all the reasons why now isn’t the right time!
But really think about these moments and the reason you want to capture your life and family to create beautiful prints for your home so you can remember this moment now in 2 years, 5 years, 10 years or longer! Looking back you are not going to care about those reasons why you didn’t want to do it, you are going to grateful that you did book a session and have these memories to look back on and pass onto your children and grandchildren.
A newborn photography session is to capture how small they were and to create beautiful sleepy, curled poses of your precious little bundle. Remembering how they curled up in your arms so snug and these fleeting moments where they slept so contently and allowed your photographer to create beautiful artwork to display in your home. These sessions are usually done in the first 2 weeks whilst they are still content to be curled up and sleepy. You can not go back in time later to retake these when you change your mind.
How often do you hear someone say “I wish I hadn’t got these photos done”? I don’t think I have ever met someone who has said that to me, the amount of parents that thank me for their newborn session and are so happy they booked me when they weren’t sure. I know as a parent you wonder how your newborn photography session will go and what happens if my baby is fussy? I am a baby led photographer so that means if your baby is a little unsettled I will change my workflow to suit them. There has been occasions when I have had parents bring their little one back for a second session to ensure I create a beautiful gallery of portraits for them.
These sessions are not just for you, they are for your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren to look back on. To be cherished by your families for generations to come and that is why you book a professional photographer who only uses professional labs, as these will be art that will be passed on. As you get older and your memory gets a little fuzzy, these will bring back a flood of memories that you had forgotten about. There may be laughs about how your baby had a little accident on you or your photographer, which most of us are use to. You may remember how cranky your child was when looking at a sad face because they didn’t want to have a photo or that they couldn’t have a toy or your phone in the photo. This photography session is not just for you now!
We are not guaranteed anything in life, circumstances change without notice sometimes. You hear of people wanting to book a photographer and quickly as life events sometimes throw you a curve ball that you weren’t expecting and you want to remember this moment now! And you want to capture all those special moments in you and your families lives as you grow together. The sessions most popular are maternity, newborn, 6 months, 1 year, when a sibling arrives and then doing a session each year or two so you have a growing treasure chest of how your family grew together. These will show those little and big changes in your family and how they change as they get older and their personality comes out.
