Take These Newborn Photos Before You Leave
Your new bundle of joy is here and you’re wanting to document that. Whether you hire someone professionally or take some images yourself, there are some shots you want to make sure are on your list!
These are the pictures I always try to take after a new baby is born!
Tiny, wrinkles toes and hands, and all the things that make up the experience of giving birth. I like to focus on the arm bands and the stripe blankets too- sometimes it’s in the unglamorous items that we find the most strong memories come flooding back. I like to make sure i get photos of those just in case.
I always try to get feeding images- it is such an intimate act no matter how you choose to do that. Mom nursing, dad feeding- whatever that looks like for your family, capture it.
COVID has made large groups of family visiting an impossibility for now, but if you are able to have siblings come to the hospital, it’s a sweet memory to have. Photograph the first moment they see their new sibling, or sitting with your spouse.
That fresh baby smell- you can’t photograph a smell but you can photograph what it feels like. Go ahead, breathe in their scan and take a photo of that! That moment is E V E R Y T H I N G. Any and all snuggles are acceptable poses for a Fresh 48.
Were you monitored? Get a photo of your monitor. Name plate on the baby bed? Definitely a memory you want. Lay your baby wrapped up in the baby bed and get photos of them sleeping there. After all, its the one and only time they will.
