Should I Get Professional Newborn Photos?

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!!!!!

Don’t worry mama, because there are so many ways to photograph and capture the newborn stage (we are living in the iphone days)!! As a matter of fact, my sister in law photographed my first born, Olivia in her bathtub!!! Anyway… if you are planning to buy and do your own photo-shoot- then keep on reading:

Make sure to start from a neutral palate because bright colors or busy patterns is distracting and please, avoid the color black! I mean… why didn’t anyone tell me to change my nail colors with Kaitlyn’s newborn photos? Needless to say, go with dreamy colors so you will love your photos forever.


There’s many ways to use a wrap. You can use the wrap as a blanket or cover or as a diaper cover up. I mean… the options are endless. But definitely include some wraps to create

Floral Headband:

Hats and headbands are sweet little accessories! I regret not adding an headband because she had no hair so people always asked me, “what’s his name?” Thank you, but she’s a GIRL! Just choose a color that compliment your wrap.

Have fun & Good Luck!

    Awwwn. These are so cute. I think it depends on the what the parents decide. With smartphones and technology these days, DIY photoshoots wouldn’t be bad either. People will go for what they deem fit. Nice pos.

    Too cute! I’d so totally get one if/when I have a newborn. No need for an expensive pro photog, good smartphone, accessories, neutral palette, and you’re good.

    Great tips for photographing new borns. Not a decision I’ve had to make, but I think I’d do it myself. I’be be more likely to spend $ on photos of the family as a whole rather than one child.
