Endless nappy changes, sleepless nights and regular feeds start to blur the days, and before you know it, you’ve missed out on those first precious weeks. You want to believe that you are going to remember every single moment, but it’s over quicker than you think and those sleepless nights mean that you’ll easily forget a lot of meaningful stuff. That’s why it’s important to capture this special time for posterity with a newborn photography session.

Our brains are not designed to retain all the images of everything our babies do, unless of course you have a photographic memory. The answer is to capture those moments the old-fashioned way; with real photography.

The first weeks

The first few weeks when your little one is sleepy and curled up are the most precious. Everything is so raw and new; it is such a special time for any family.

To ensure you can capture those moments, photographers recommend that you have photos taken 6-10 days after giving birth. That’s a time when you have still had a decent amount of sleep and can still look at your child through clear eyes.
