When the lovely Doulas behind Lifetime of Love asked me to write a blog about newborn photography I absolutely jumped at the chance! I could go on and on about how our little ones are only this small for a short while, and how sweet those tiny toes are, but I really wanted to take this opportunity to dig deeper. So here are my reasons to hire a newborn photographer!
Get mom in the frame
In all aspects newborn photography, whether is be during your labour, those first few days in the hospital or in the first few weeks, I want you to be able to be present!
One of my absolute favourite pictures from when my daughter was a newborn is of her dad and brother giving her a bath on our kitchen table. While it might not have seemed monumental at the time, it documents the relationship of my children, it will allow my daughter to see what her dad looked like when he wasn't old and grey, the house in which she was born. Life takes so many twists over the years and today is not promised tomorrow.
This is why photography is so important to me. Preserving the memories you might not even know are happening!
