We get it, professional photographers are an expensive investment. But as a newborn photographer of almost a decade, and a Paediatric Nurse of 15 years, I can tell you one thing I know for certain; So many people I have had the pleasure of knowing in my many years of experience hold huge regret for the photos they DIDN’T take. And not one of those people have ever felt regret for the ones they did. Being a mother of two myself, I know exactly what they are saying. 

The arrival of a newborn brings a wave of joy, love, and wonder. Every coo, every yawn, every adorable expression is a fleeting moment that deserves to be preserved forever. This is where the wonderful world of newborn photography comes in, sprinkling a touch of magic on those early days and making them last a lifetime.

Imagine a scenario: you’re flipping through a dusty photo album, stumbling upon a faded snapshot of your infant self. You squint, trying to make out the details, and a sharp pull of regret tugs at your heart strings. I mean, back in the day when we were young there wasn’t the glorious technology we have today. But that’s another reason to go ahead and do it! We have the world at our fingertips when it comes to technology, so don’t let the regretful scenario above become your reality! 

Here’s 5 reasons why investing in a professional newborn photography session is absolutely worth it:

1. Frozen In Time

I mean, just blink and already your little one’s tiny fingers and button nose have grown. A professional newborn photographer is like a time-travelling wizard, freezing those fleeting moments in high-definition. We can capture the essence of innocence, love, and connection, giving you a treasure trove of memories to cherish not just for you, but for your baby to look back on as well.

2. Artful Authenticity

Sure, you can snap a million photos with your smartphone, but there’s a certain artistry that a professional photographer brings to the table. The play of light, the delicate poses, and the carefully chosen backdrops turn your baby’s photo session into a masterpiece.

3. Stress-Free Experience

Picture this: You arrive at the studio and your photographer greets you and your new bundle of joy with open arms, a warm welcome, some treats and a much needed hot coffee. You relax and take a look around you at the army of blankets, props, and soothing tricks to soothe even the fussiest of babies. No need to stress about chasing perfect lighting or creating the right atmosphere. You get to (for once) sit back, relax, and let the expert handle the magic while you sip your “wake me up” beverage – is that Heaven or is THAT HEAVEN?!

4. Bonding Bonanza

Newborn photography sessions are more than just pretty pictures. They’re a chance for you to connect, bond, and create beautiful memories with your baby. As you gaze lovingly at your little one, the photographer captures the purest emotions, weaving a story that speaks of love, joy, and the start of a beautiful journey as a family unit.

*Tissues, please*

5. Regret-Free Delight

Now, let’s talk about the types of regret that might creep in if you skip the newborn photography session. Imagine flipping through a photo album years from now, only to find blurry, poorly lit, or grainy smartphone pic. The “What if?” whispers might haunt you. Don’t let them! Choose the path of no regrets and embrace the opportunity to create a visual memory bank that tells of your family’s love story in the best way possible. 

So, if you’re on the fence about whether to book that newborn photography session, take the plunge! Ask yourself the reason for the hesitation.
