Feeding Your Little One, Why Bonding Time is a Precious Time to Photograph – Tacoma Newborn Photographer


There is something special that happens while you are feeding your baby. The momentary frenzy of hunger melts away as they relax into your arms. You both share a moment of peace as she grabs your finger and catches your gaze. In her eyes you are reminded of the abundance of unconditional love in this world. There is enough love inside this one moment to cover the world over. Whether you are bottle, breast, or a combination of both, feeding time is bonding time. Research shows that this contact (especially skin to skin) boosts levels of oxytocin, the “love” hormone, in both the mother (or father) and baby. These are moments to savor and moments to preserve.

You can add-on feeding time photographs to any newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, or first year session, for no charge. So go ahead and schedule your session to coincide with her feeding time and bring her bottle. Have your little man breastfeed while we discretely photograph this precious time. For newborn sessions your little one is most likely going to have a snack or two or three during their newborn session, so feel free to let Anne know that you would like this moment captured for you during any of the feedings.

Allow us to capture for you some of those tender moments that are so fleeting. As always we will approach this process by taking your lead, remaining professional, supportive, and patient. You may realize years down the road that photos such as these are among your most treasured belongings. They carry within them emotions and feelings that are difficult to define at the time; may you enjoy those feelings again with an air of nostalgia.

We are currently accepting session reservations for October, November, December and January. Please reserve your newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month or first year session early to insure that we have the date available during the month you are needing a session.
