The Importance of Newborn Photography

Classic Froggy Pose By Melbourne Newborn, Baby, and Family Photographer Portraits By Annabelle

Falling pregnant is one of the most exciting stages of any womans’ life and is something that you will remember for the rest of your life. If this is your first time, you may think that 9 months is forever but in all truthfulness, it actually passes very quickly and before you know it, you are a parent and you’re welcoming your gorgeous little bundle of joy into the world.

For any parent, those first two weeks with a newborn pass rapidly. There may be peeling, wrinkly skin, the umbilical stump is still attached but before you know it baby has plumped out, the stump has fallen off and healed and you really will want to remember that precious newborn stage forever.  Your child will never again change so quickly, those tiny details and sleepy newborn qualities will disappear seemingly overnight.

To ensure this precious time doesn’t pass you in the blink of an eye, a lot of Melbourne mums take advantage of my professional photography services. Photographs are one of the best ways to preserve such precious moments, they will forever remind you of how tiny and sweet your little baby looked in those first few weeks that seem to be a “Blink and You’ll Miss It” kind of moment.

I recommend parents book a newborn session within babys’ first 10 days of birth, the earlier the better. Newborn babies are very sleepy which is ideal for capturing that delicious curled up position just like they had in Mums womb. Truthfully, parents are perfectly able to take a picture of their little bundle of joy, but nothing can compare to having a professional photographer document this beautiful yet seemingly fleeting moment is your childs’ life. A newborn session provides parents with the opportunity to relax and record the joyous experience of parenthood and their new little life so that their babies first few weeks will never be forgotten.
