Why should you hire a newborn photographer?
It’s simple really. Your baby grows quickly. You need to be in the pictures with your baby. And if you hire a newborn photographer, you won’t look back at the pictures you snapped on your phone wishing you had hired someone to do it professionally.
4 Reasons to Hire a Newborn Photographer
01 – You will always have something else to do.
Your baby’s arrival means you are suddenly responsible for keeping another human alive. Between feedings, diaper changes, sleeping and feeding yourself, you will be too busy to pick up the camera. Of course, everyone has a phone around to snap a few quick pictures, but they are not of the quality you’ll receive when you hire a Denver Newborn Photographer. If you do have a decent camera, someone still has to take the actual picture, and that someone will not be in the photo.
02 – You need to be in the pictures.
If you’re always the one taking the pictures, then you will never be in them. I know it’s not rocket science, and you may think you’ll be able to manage just fine with your phone or setting the timer on your camera. But, you’ll eventually realize you don’t have a picture of you and your spouse and your baby, or just you and your baby that isn’t a selfie, and eventually, that will bother you.
Even if you’re fine with not being in the pictures with your spouse and/or baby, it will matter to your baby someday. Huh? You may love that picture of your sweet babe, but when they’re grown, your now baby will want a picture with you. Your baby needs you in pictures. These images are heirlooms for your family.
03 – The “newborn” time frame is so small.
We have all marveled at how quickly children change, and newborns seem to change more quickly than children at any other stage. The window to take actual newborn photos is quite small, so if remembering just how tiny their fingers and toes matters to you, be sure to book your photography session 7-21 days after their birth. I recommend scheduling your newborn session prior to the birth of your baby, so it is one less thing to think about once your baby is born.
04 – They’re only little once.
I’m not a mother, but I can’t believe how quickly my nephews grow and change, and the images we have of them when they were teeny tiny are oh so precious to this auntie’s heart. Maybe booking a newborn session isn’t important to you. Perhaps you think you won’t miss capturing this precious time with your new baby, but from all the mothers I’ve spoken, I’m hard-pressed to believe that is true.
Yes, hiring a professional newborn photographer requires some planning, but hiring a professional means you don’t have to worry about snapping every second of your baby’s first days on your phone. You’ll have beautiful, heirloom quality images to hang in your home and cherish
If you have a baby on the way, let’s talk! The images of your baby in their precious first few days will warm your heart and probably bring on a few happy tears (Let’s be honest).
