How many of you, just after the birth of your baby, sought out to find baby pictures of yourself and your husband’s newborn pictures too? Did you dig up your parents’ pictures, his parents’, your siblings’? When you compared them all, who did you decide that your newborn resembled most? Did she have your mother’s mouth maybe, did your son have your husband’s eyes? I know I did all of the above and it was FUN and very interesting. With that being said, have you considered that the newborn pictures you invest in now for your baby will be around and important for that long? Their senior year in high school, on their wedding day, the birth of their first baby, your grandchild! … and great grandchildren. These are all milestones in our lives when we search for baby pictures of our loved ones. Will you consider this perspective when contemplating professional newborn baby portraits? Will the images you choose to have taken stand the test of time for generations to come? Will they be pulled out with pride by your grandchildren one day as they giggle, ooooh, and awe over their parent’s baby pictures. Can you imagine your granddaughter squealing, “oh my gosh, my newborn baby girl looks identical to my mother’s newborn picture!!!”, days after she’s welcomed your great granddaughter into this world?
Take your time and let it all sink in, it’s really that important.
