Are newborn photos worth it? Yes.
I feel like this blog post should be complete with one word; yes. I’ll continue on, though, and say that they’re worth it times a million. Worth it hands down. Worth every single penny in your pocket.
Your baby will never be this small again. Ever. As a new parent, we think that the hard days will last forever, things will never become easy, and we will never sleep again. However, the hard days will become easier, life will settle into a comforting routine, and we will eventually sleep again. But your baby still will never be this small.
Your baby will never rest this easy on your chest, cuddled in your partners arms, and will surely never get along with their sibling quite like their first days of life again.
I never had newborn photos. In fact, I never had decent photos of my kids until it was almost too late. My kiddos were toddler and child size before I realized, “wait a minute- their lives are passing me by much faster than I can keep up.” If I had newborn photos of my babies, I would be able to savor what life was like instead of rely on memories that quickly escape us. I would be able to compare how big (or small) they actually were in their crib, or my arms.
Why wouldn’t someone get newborn photos? I honestly don’t know the answer to that anymore. Cost? Okay, sure, maybe that’s why. If Starbucks was given up throughout the entire pregnancy, though, that would easily cover the cost of your newborn session. Skipping a fancy dinner only six times, you’d be able to easily afford a newborn session. If it’s important to us, we will find a way to pay for it.
Tell me again. Are newborn photos worth it?
Are newborn photos worth it? Absolutely. I don’t know any mother that has had newborn photos done that regrets it now. It’s completely the opposite. Those of us that don’t have those photos, regret not doing a session.
Don’t be like me.
Don’t be like me. Please- hear me when I say they are worth it.
