When your baby is first born, their immediate instinct is to eat. Anyone present at a birth has witnessed the miracle of the tiny newborn attempting to suckle. A baby’s first feeding, whether from the bottle or the mother, is a beautiful moment for parents. It is the first step in the journey of parenthood, where the parents begin to sustain and care for the life they have created.
Not only does feeding sustain the little one, it also creates a very strong bond. Endorphins flow for both parents and infants during feeding time, as the skin-to-skin contact, cuddling, and comfort for baby, encourage emotional and physical connections.
While these moments are precious, they are also short. Soon baby is sitting up, and eating food on their own. That is why adding bottle or breastfeeding photos to your newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, or first birthday photo session is so special. This add-on is free of charge, and creates a lovely memory to reflect on when your baby becomes a toddler, running around and independent.
Feeding time with baby can be captured during any of the above mentioned sessions. By working with an experienced newborn photographer, you can be sure that you and baby will be comfortable during these intimate photos. Feeding is one of the most important aspects of a newborn’s life, so do not forget to capture these sweet moments and preserve the memory for years to come.
