Congrats! You’re Pregnant! You just got done telling all of your closest family and friends about your exciting news. Now it’s time to reserve your due date with a photographer for professional newborn photos.
As a newly pregnant person, you’re likely to be consumed with all sorts of new information coming your way. From learning about your growing baby each week, to researching the best childbirth classes, to listing everything you need on your baby registry, to finding the perfect car seat, the list can seem endless. Amidst all the chaos, it can be easy to forget the importance of capturing this momentous time in your life. But, I’m here to remind you that investing in professional newborn photos is one of the most important investments you can make as you prepare to welcome your new baby into the world.
I am participating in a blog circle this month and am sharing a link to another amazing photographer in Minneapolis! Be sure to check out her link at the end of this blog post.
Here are some of my top reasons why you should invest in a newborn photography session with me at my Portland Oregon newborn portrait studio:
1. Professional Newborn Photos document a fleeting moment in your life:
Your baby will grow and change faster than you can possibly imagine. (At least that’s been my experience…) And before you know it, they’ll be walking, talking and starting school. Photographs of your new baby show the innocence, vulnerability and pure beauty of your baby in their earliest days. These photos will become cherished memories that you can look back on for many, many years to come.
2. They tell a story:
Newborn photographs are not just about a pretty picture, they tell the story of your family’s newest addition. From their tiny fingers and toes to their unique facial expressions, these photos of your baby display their unique qualities and personality. They also help to preserve the memories of this time in your life and the love and happiness you felt as a new parent.
3. Professional Newborn Photos are keepsakes for you and your baby:
Newborn photos can be used to create beautiful heirloom keepsakes, such as photo albums, framed fine art prints, and gift prints for the grandparents. These professional quality photo products will not only decorate your home, but they will also serve as a source of cheerfulness for many years to come. They can be passed down from generation to generation, becoming cherished family heirlooms. (I specialize in helping you create heirloom quality artwork of your babies.

4. Newborn Photos celebrate the arrival of your baby:
Bringing a new life into the world is a momentous occasion, and a newborn photo session is the perfect way to celebrate this special time. As your Portland Newborn Photographer, I love photographing new parents while you dote on your new baby. These images provide a lasting visual reminder of the amazing journey you’re embarking on.
5. They can help with postpartum struggles:
Many new parents experience feelings feelings of anxiety, depression and uncertainty throughout the postpartum period. Having beautiful images of your new baby can serve as a source of comfort and healing during this big, new adjustment in your life. Your baby’s photographs serve as a reminder of the immense amount of love and joy that your baby has brought into your life, and provide a much-needed source of positive energy during this time.
6. Professional Newborn Photographers provide a unique perspective:
As a newborn photographer, I have spent years learning, growing and perfecting my craft. I specialize in minimalist newborn photography; showcasing the beauty and personality of your baby, focusing on their tiny little features that make them unique.
7. A done-for-you-experience:
As a professional newborn photographer, I prioritize making your experience a stress-free & laid back one. I have a feminine client wardrobe with over 60 dresses in a wide variety of sizes. You are welcome to borrow from my wardrobe for your session. I also work with an amazing hair and make-up artist who will come to the studio to pamper you on the day of your session. All you have to do is show up ready to love on your sweet baby and we’ll take care of the rest!
8. It’s a great bonding experience:
Having newborn photos taken is a special bonding experience for both you, your partner, older siblings and your baby. During the newborn photography session, you hold, cuddle and connect with your baby, and together we create a set of lasting memories that you all will treasure forever.
If you want a lifetime of cherished memories with your new baby, then do yourself a favor and make the investment in hiring a professional newborn photographer. From photographing the beauty and innocence of your baby in their earliest days, to providing a source of comfort and healing during the postpartum period, newborn photos are an essential part of the journey of parenthood.
