Welcoming a new member to your family is a beautiful change. Babies grow up so fast, and it is only natural to want to capture every moment you spend with them. Experiencing the change is essential for every family member, and capturing those precious moments is important.
When a baby is on the way, there is a lot to plan. Your budget needs a review. You need to build cribs, buy bedding and stock up on diapers – everything seems expensive. Thinking about a baby photo shoot is something that does not seem like a necessity then, but there is no excuse for not capturing the precious moments of your baby when he or she is just beginning to look around in curiosity and breaking out in giggles.
Let us give you five reasons you need to book a photo shoot for your precious little one –
- To prevent regret
We have never come across parents who regret a baby photo shoot, but we have come across plenty of couples who regret not booking a photo shoot when they had the time.
- True possessions of parenthood
When our children go up and leave their nest for college and work, we only have memories of their childhood. These baby pictures remain as a testimony to the happy times that we can preserve and carry with us through our journey of life.
- Building a heritage
We love clicking pictures, but in the age of selfies and Instagram, we hardly have a tangible picture. We need photos in albums that we can touch and feel. It gives us a sense of possession. Your children should have baby pictures of themselves when they grow up. Help them create a beautiful timeline of their lives with a snapshot of every milestone they achieve. Without the baby pictures, any person’s album is just incomplete.
- Everyone loves baby pictures!
After your baby is born, everyone will ask for baby pictures. Your parents will want to forward the cute images to their friends, and your friends will simply want to swoon over the angelic faces. Instead of forwarding selfies and hasty snapshots, you can forward the perfect professional photos that kindle the innocence, happiness, and beauty of your child.
- It does not cost too much
Most parents shy away from baby photoshoots because they believe the process to be expensive. However, baby photoshoots can be of different budgets. You can pick your own set up depending on how much you want to invest in the shoot. You can arrange for the shoot at your place, in your baby’s crib. You can use any accessories available at home for the shoot. It is the talent of the photographer that makes the photos look ethereal.
Babies grow up before you can blink. Don’t miss the opportunity to immortalize each moment of their candor when you have the chance.
I agree with this so much! When they are tiny newborns it is such a tough time, very hard to take it all in because of those sleepless nights. So having pictures last a lifetime. I have three kids and cherish their newborn baby pictures.
I agree that professional is the way to go. My first grandbaby is coming next week and I am going to help my daughter pay for them so that I have these.
I am the youngest of six…and the only child without professional pictures. My dad protested my complaints saying that by the time I was born they owned a nice camera and could take the photos themselves. But six kids! They could have, but didn’t. It’s mainly in jest, but I did give my parents a hard time. I didn’t want my own kids to miss out on beautiful photos so I book a pro each time.
I also hired a professional photographer to do a baby shoot for all my three children. They are keepsakes! Those photos are proudly displayed on our living room wall. The quality is superb, it still looks like the photos were taken only a few weeks ago when in fact my eldest child is 32 and my youngest is 26!
This is something I wish I did more. I love seeing new babies all dolled up for the photo!
It’s good to hire professional photographer for baby’s first shoot. No matter how expensive camera one has! Because you may have a good camera but you don’t have a good experience. That’s what I think!
