When you have a newborn, you want to cut down on stress in as many ways as possible. Getting into the rhythm of having a newborn that needs to nurse every few hours and wakes throughout the night is a hard adjustment, even if it isn’t your first child. Capturing those first moments on camera is a priority for most parents, but actually getting it done can be stressful. With Fairies and Frogs Photography, I make sure this process is as stress-free as possible.
It might seem counterintuitive, but hiring a professional newborn photographer will actually save money and time. When you hire a professional who is used to doing newborn sessions, they know you really need to capture that newborn phase in the first two weeks, preferably from 5 to 14 days old. Even if you have a smaller baby, when they get to be a little older than that, they just lose that newborn appearance and malleability. When they are newborns, a professional can get them into all of those cute poses you see online or in your friend’s homes.
As for the session itself, a professional photographer will not be stressed out by your need to nurse, snuggle, or take breaks during your session. They will capture those sweet, candid moments as well as the posed ones.
When you don’t hire a professional, you might spend all afternoon with a friend that has a good camera trying to get those adorable professional-seeming photos. But when you are disappointed with the results, you might end up hiring a professional anyways and by that point you may have missed your window of opportunity (those first few days are so important!) and you double the amount of time spent taking the photos.
The best bet to get the pictures you want of your newborn it’s best just to hire a professional. To hire Fairies and Frogs Photography for your newborn session, contact me today for more information.
