Childrens Portraits

What Is Newborn Photography

by Stuart Hasson

On a rolling scale of Important Events to photograph, taking pictures of your Newborn rolls right to the top!  I don’t believe there’s any event (graduation, wedding, pregnancy (and you all know how passionate I am about that!), getting on the bus for the 1st time…) more significant than creating wonderful images of your newborn baby.  Especially when we’re talking about your FIRST baby!

This little person is an absolute Angel when they arrive into your arms.  Is anything more important than them right now?  I didn’t think so!  More Emotions than you can count.  More love than you’ve ever felt.  More dreams than you’ll ever be able to keep track of.  But that’s okay because they’re here, safe in your arms.  All the rest will be figured out in time.

Ah, but time… evil enemy of every momma!  Time passes.  We all change.  And Baby grows up (what a Kill-Joy!).

You know these chubby little arms and legs and cheeks and,… well everything’s chubby right now! are going to change in the blink of an eye.  How are you going to remember every little chubby part of your little one?  ‘Oh, I’ll remember’.  HA!

Take pictures!  LOTS OF PICTURES.  You’ll NEVER remember everything (science has proven that).  So kept that darn cellphone with you (of course you will, anyway) and keep the lens clean for goodness sake (unless you like the soft glowyness of a dirty lens J).

Newborns change more in their 1st year than they do during any other period of their lives

So get lots of rest (another HA!), eat well (after you feed your baby) and be ready with your camera (cellphone) to take pictures at every opportunity.  Call a pro (ME) when you really want to hang onto the memories!

This picture is about 30 years old but it brings me back every time I look at it. THAT’s why I’m a photographer: To help people REMEMBER all of the good things in their Life!
