Why Book A Newborn Photographer Brisbane?
If you’ve just had a baby, you’re probably grabbing the iPhone at every opportunity and taking photos of your new baby. And why wouldn’t you? Those first few weeks are precious and fly-by in a haze of midnight feeds and nappy changing. But have you considered booking a professional photographer to take those newborn photos for you? If not, here’s a few reasons to consider why book a newborn photographer Brisbane.
Despite how great you are with an iPhone, it’s very unlikely you’re going to be in any of those photos right? When your baby comes along, you become a family and THAT is worth documenting. A family photo is something you will ALWAYS cherish. You’ll never tire of seeing that photo on the wall, I guarantee it! So it doesn’t matter if you’re sleep deprived, feel like the walking dead or turn up to my studio in north Brisbane in your pyjamas. Be in the photo with your baby because one day, your baby will be all grown up and cherish that photo just as much as you do.
In The Blink Of An Eye…
Your newborn baby grows so fast! In just a few short weeks, your baby will have gained weight and those tiny little hands and feet will already be bigger! It won’t be long before your baby has chubbier cheeks, gorgeous little baby rolls, more hair, or in some cases, less hair! And by the time you drop back into the studio to collect your artwork, your baby will have decided that it’s much more fun to stay awake during the day. So, while newborns are gorgeous at any age, the best time to photograph them is in the first few weeks of their arrival. Because this is when babies are the sleepiest it makes those gorgeous squishy newborn poses easier to get in the first few weeks.
How Long Does The Session Last?
Because it’s important that your baby is comfortable at all times, the newborn session can take up to 3 hours. This allows time for comforting cuddles, nappy changes and feeding if your baby needs it. The studio is heated so your baby is nice and cosy and most times, baby will sleep through nearly the whole session. But don’t worry if your baby is unsettled because sometimes the awake photos are even better than the sleepy ones! So while I work away, capturing some gorgeous images of your baby, you’re welcome to settle back on the couch with a cuppa and a trashy magazine and relax!
It’s Never Too Late!
If your newborn baby is already past the ‘ideal’ first few weeks stage for photography, it’s not too late! The MOST important thing is that you have photographs! Your baby, your family, YOU…these are all such precious moments in yours and your baby’s lifetime. It doesn’t matter if your baby is now a few months old, everyone needs to capture moments with their family. So if you would love some gorgeous imagery to decorate your home with, don’t wait any longer! Get in touch today to secure your session.
