Why Newborn Photography is so importanT

A newborn baby is the most memorable time in a family's life. It's a time for celebration, for big changes, and new beginnings. That's why it's so important to capture these moments with a professional newborn photographer. We love babies and cherish the photos we had of our kids when they were first born. Not only are newborn photos beautiful and timeless, but they provide a precious record of your baby's first few months.

What is newborn photography?

Newborn photography is a type of photography that captures an important time of life shortly after your baby is born. Typically, these photoshoots take place in a studio which offers a warm, comfortable environment which benefits from access to props, lighting and facilities (like our Wallace Retreat studio near Seattle). However, documentary-style photography can be done to capture candid moments in your home. The popularity of newborn photography has certainly grown over recent years. There are some examples of newborn photography taken in our studio:

Why you should get professional newborn photography

The birth of a new baby is a busy time for every parent. With so much on it may be hard to fit a newborn photo shoot into your schedule. If you book a photoshoot at our Wallace Retreat studio, you can enjoy an experience with your baby that you can look back on in years to come.

Timing is everything

The beginning is hard. You're adjusting to a new sleep schedule (which isn't something you have much control over), and it will feel as if time is standing still. However, timing is everything as your baby will develop so quickly during those first few weeks. We aim to have your photoshoot within the first 21 days of life, so we can capture your sweet baby at their tiniest. They grow so rapidly over their first year, that it is a treasure to have images to reflect back on and remember just how small they once were. Having a professional photo shoot ensures you capture those special moments forever. You also have the option to book follow-up photo shoots throughout the first year to document your little one's progress. With so many options, we would love to create the perfect images for you!
