3 Reasons why you should be in your Newborns photoshoot.

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Why you need professional newborn photo session?

When my daughter was born 9 years ago, we hired a photographer to get a photoshoot while still at the hospital. She was just a day old and felt so tiny in my hands. I was a new mom and was overwhelmed with all the contrasting emotions.I was also too tired and in pain to dress up for a photoshoot, so I decided I will sit out on this one. I dressed her in a pink onesie. When the photographer came, she insisted I take at least a few pictures with my daughter. She just put a white sheet around me and handed me my daughter, got my husband in the frame and took a close up shot of the three of us. That picture still hangs in my daughter’s room!

I am so grateful that my photographer pushed me to get in frame, because that’s my most favorite picture of us, a new family of three!

This is why you need to be in your Newborns Photoshoot

  1. You Deserve It!

  2. Document your birth story

  3. Your children need to see you in pictures

You Deserve it!

You made it to the other side of pregnancy! You have your beautiful baby in your arms and you deserve to remember this moment for the rest of your life! Not every day will you hold your newborn for the very first time. So no matter how hard it feels, get in the frame! You will truly thank yourself later.

Document your Birth Story

I know you are tired and overwhelmed and getting in the frame is the last thing you have on your mind. But your body did something amazing! It's no short of a miracle what our bodies go through to bring our precious babies in this world. So document it all, the beautiful and the ugly. A few years from now you will look at these pictures with so much admiration.

Your children need to see you in the pictures

Moms are the natural memory keeper of our families. We are the ones with camera or phone documenting this beautiful life with our kids and partner. Which also means we are barely in any pictures. So please, get in the frame. Your kids deserve to have pictures of themselves with their mom, to see the undying love and the warmth of a Mom's hug.

So when I go for my Newborn photoshoots, I insist mom be in the frame. It's fine if you don't like that image right now, but I know you will, in a few years! You need to see yourself in the pictures, your kids need to see you in the pictures.

In fact my favorite images from a photo shoot are always the one with Moms in the frame. The love that shines in a Mother’s eyes for a child is so very precious and absolutely priceless.
