It’s easy for me to tell you as a Houston newborn photographer that you need to invest in a professional newborn photographer. But, I am also a mom of three and I’ve been in your shoes. I know the questions that run through your head and the justifications for why it would “just be easier” to do it yourself. I thought so too. After all, I AM a newborn photographer, and I should be able to photograph my own babies, right? Wrong!
To this day, I regret not hiring someone else to take my second baby’s newborn photos. Not because they aren’t beautiful, but because I was not able to be fully present and just be Mom, which is SO important. I was so focused on wanting everything to be perfect that I missed those little moments. And those moments…they’re what I want so desperately to have photos of today.
DIY vs Professional Newborn Photography
Could you go to Pinterest and search for the best tips for a DIY newborn session? Probably. But at what risk and at what cost? Poor quality images? Missed moments? Stressing yourself to learn a new skill while also learning to be a new mom? It’s just not worth it.
As a professional newborn photographer, I am able to provide parents with so much more than beautiful images. Imagine if all you had to do was book your session and show up at our studio in The Heights, knowing that my team is there to take care of everything. This includes hair and makeup, wardrobe, comforting your baby, and most importantly, documenting this fleeting season for your family.
When you invest in professional newborn photography, you’re not only investing in beautiful portraits but an experience that will allow you to just be present with your baby while ensuring you are in the photos with them. So whether you have never picked up a camera or you are an award-winning newborn photographer, I truly believe that there is value in hiring someone to take your baby’s newborn photos. I promise you’ll never regret taking this time to just be Mom!
