why hire a pro for newborn photography

Today's cell phones have great cameras so when it comes time for your new baby to be born, you might not think much of snapping a few shots, posting them to the 'gram, and calling it a job. But hiring a professional photographer for a newborn photography session can actually be one of the best things you do. Here are just a few of the reasons why:


You're Busy


Let's be honest, having a newborn isn't easy. Even if it's not your first, you're still super busy and tired 90% of the time. From feeding, to changing, to bathing, to laundry, there's a lot to do and it feels like it will never end. Take the stress off getting the perfect shot by hiring a pro to come in and handle it for you.


Better Than a Selfie


Although you might not want to be in photos right now with messy hair and bags under your eyes, one day you'll look back and realize you have no photos of yourself with your newborn. I can prevent that! 


Prints Done For You


Being able to take photos on your phone is extremely convenient, and yes, I do it too. But, how often do those digital photos end up as beautiful prints in a frame on the wall? When you hire a professional, you'll get access to your favorite photos digitally, but you will also have access to a print gallery which you can easily share with family members and have them sent to your house. How easy is that?!
