" I just don't think we need newborn photos..."
Of course we have all thought this during the course of our pregnancy.
I remember after our little boy, setting up a Dallas Newborn photography session felt like the last thing on my importance list. Now, I am so glad I have these photos. I could not imagine not having them.
It an ideal world for me, photography would be essential to everyone.
My experiences not only personally, but after speaking with clients that chose to forego newborn photos in the past has always been feelings of regret.
This time with your fresh baby will not be a long one. Especially if you have more than one child, you will blink and they will be walking. Here are 5 reasons why newborn photos are important to have.
1 no regrets.
As someone who is not only a DFW Newborn photographer, but a mama too, let me tell 'ya. You are going to feel like you are royally messing everything up daily. I think it comes with being a good mama. Because our brains tend to do this naturally, try to give in to as many natural wants that you had prior to the first period of exhaustion. Otherwise, you may regret not doing them.
Were newborn photos something you wanted before? If the answer is yes, they are absolutely worth doing. There is nothing worse than a little cup of regret to go with your tired pie.
During a time when you need to be as easy on yourself as possible, regrets are not the best self- love accessory to carry around.
2 honoring your baby helps your bond.
I think that the many years I have spent as a Dallas Newborn photographer, there is a common theme I connect during the process of and after shooting Dallas Newborn Sessions.
Photography sessions are so much more than a few pretty pictures to put on facebook.
They are a symbol of love.
A quite moment for bonding.
A reminder to your mind that you are honoring this new little human of yours and celebrating their existence.
All of these things work hand in hand in helping further build your relationship with your new little one.
Sometimes in the midst of tiredness, stress, and anxiety, bonding can prove to be difficult for some.
It is super normal and doesn't mean anything is wrong with you.
However, reconfirming to your brain that you are establishing a bond with this precious babe and all the loves and intimacy during a Dallas Newborn Session. Your bond with your baby will only benefit from our time together.
3 It gives you something to look forward to.
The first two weeks after baby comes will be so precious and special. It can also be hard, lonely, and a bit of a culture shock.
In just a snap you and your families entire way of life has changed.
You are up all night, feel terrible, look tired, and have cancelled most plans for the next, oh, I dunno, 100 years!
Just a joke, but seriously. It is important to have things to look forward to.
There will not be many in those first couple of weeks.
As a Dallas Newborn Photographer I can see the relief on mom's face when we get there. Happy to see another human.
I can also see and feel the excitement that mom has for the session and then to be able to see her photos of her precious babe and share them with the world.
One of the very best things you can do for yourself during this time- Keep things to look forward to.
2 family gifts
I will tell you this as not only a Dallas Newborn photographer, but a mom of 3. Gone are the days of intricate gift shopping for extended family.
One of the greatest thing about newborn photos is this: You will have gifts to everyone you love covered for the rest of the year.
There is nothing better than knowing you have that done. Especially at Christmas time!
Our customers get a product credit to put towards gifts and products and make it effortless to gift their photos.
It is a win win.
I cannot stress that enough!
1 It is a simple way to show self love
During this time you are going to be tested and tried more than you ever have.
Motherhood is the very best most precious job you will have.
It is also the hardest.
As you navigate the early days of your babe being tiny and needing you every second, ,it is imperative that you find ways to self care.
Newborn sessions are a great way to do this.
You being able to see yourself looking beautiful and snuggling and loving those that mean the most to you will mean more to you in those first few months than probably any hair or nail appointment combined.
You loving yourself is the very best gift you can give your baby and your family.
This time with your fresh baby will not be a long one. Especially if you have more than one child, you will blink and they will be walking. Newborn sessions are one of the most important sessions of your motherhood and parenthood.
And one of the most precious gifts you will ever give to yourself
