Newborn Pictures - Worth it?♥

As a mother to three and only having one child get professional newborn pictures done, I highly recommend it. As an amateur photographer I told myself I would take my own newborn pictures. Let's face it, after delivery, all you want to do is SLEEP! And if your spouse can snap a few pictures that's great but what about the beautiful newborn pictures you see on Pinterest and Facebook? Don't wait. Hire a photographer! I had the opportunity for a great friend to swing by a few days after Ava was born and let's just say the results were INCREDIBLE! I am so thankful she offered to help me with pictures because honestly, I don't think I would have ever gotten to them and here she is a month old!

So yes, Newborn Pictures are 100% WORTH IT! The time my friend Sarah but into Ava's newborn pictures, was totally worthwhile, even when I felt overwhelmed. Sarah was so patient with my family. It definitely takes skill working with a newborn and Sarah offers just that and more. While nursing Ava she played with my girls and always kept them apart of the session. And when it came to Ava, I completely trusted her! So, if you are a Connecticut resident, I absolutely recommend Snap Shots Unlimited! Sarah and her husband Dwayne are phenomenal at what they do and I can't thank them enough. Sarah captured moments I will never get back and I absolutely love every single picture!

If I had to offer a piece of advice, go into your session with an open mind. Stay away from Pinterest and Facebook and allow your photographer to work his/her magic. You'll be completely blown away with the end results, as I was. Also, look into a photographer during your pregnancy, don't wait. Our babies change everyday and we want to capture every moment, including their fuzzy (peely) skin.

Remember, patience is key! Trust your photographer and most importantly, be flexible and work with your newborn. And of course, don't give up!

  2. I totally agree with you I think newborn pictures are well worth it. There is never going to be a time in their life that they will be that small again. Enjoy every minute you get with them because what I'm figuring out as it goes way too fast.

  3. Those pictures are so sweet! I think they are worth it. There weren't as many options when my kids were babies, but we did go to JCPenney for some lol.

  6. My boys are a bit older. When they were born, newborn pictures weren't a thing and the only ones anyone had were taken right in the hospital. We loved ours, they're still on my wall.

  8. I am actually a newborn photographer so I may go a little overboard when I had my girls. Each one got a five day Newborn session.
