The newborn stage is short and precious because babies change so much during the first year. Which is why I believe it is important to preserve those memories by capturing them in photos! When I had my girls I got both of my daughters’ newborn photos done professionally and I don’t regret it. Now I can go back and look at them every time I have baby fever. I personally think newborn sessions are so sweet and intimate and I know you won’t regret getting them done either.
I know, I know… newborn photos are expensive!!!!!
