How Newborn Baby Photography Albums Can Be Created

 

newborn baby photographyOne thing most expecting parents do not know is that newborn baby photography does not only happen when the child has been born into the world. It can happen as soon as the parents discover that they are expecting a little one. You can even take it to be the documentation of the process of the pregnancy until the little one is in the world and ready to be the star of the parade.

Yes, newborn baby photography starts as early as this stage. How is that possible? When the newborn parents go to the doctor’s for the monthly checkup, one thing the doctor does is to perform an ultrasound of the baby in the womb. The doctor captures the image of the fetus and hands it over to the parents to keep in their records. From here, the parents can start building the tempo or album for their newborn baby photography album.

For most pregnancies, a period of 9 months should be given before the baby is eventually born for the world to see. When the baby is just a few days old, the parents can contract the expert services of a professional photographer to capture their little one when they are still in such a state. The images can be taken over a period of time to chronicle the growth of the newborn. As long as the pictures are shot within the first few weeks of birth, then the newborn state will always reflect.

Now it is important to note that for it to be considered newborn photography, the child must not be more than 2 months old. Because once the reach that mark, they are already too old to be considered newborns. If you want to have a proper record of your child in their first stage of life, then it is advised you get the photographs done early. Also, most parents are not ready to expose their little one to the elements of the environment and would love to keep them as sheltered as possible, it is therefore not surprising to find that they would prefer to have the photographs taken within the comfort of their home.

Home

Capturing the image of the newborn within their home has its merits because for one, the newborn does not have to get shocked by a new environment like the studio. The parents would have already gotten into a comfortable routine with the newborn and will be able to schedule a suitable time frame to have the pictures taken within the home. However, one thing that all parties to the newborn baby photography need to have is patience in folds. Why?

Patience

Patience they say is a virtue and this is virtue you will need in droves when trying to accommodate a little one who does not care that you are on a schedule or you just want to take a picture of their little face. The newborn is not a stage where he or she can understand this and can only see someone interfering with their nap or meal. You therefore need to understand the psyche of a newborn and formulate ways to deal with them.

The Baby Photographer that Knows What You Need

baby photographyThe moment you step up and take the decision to have that baby, your life is changing so much. Little by little you can see how your little boy motivates positive changes in you and your partner’s life. You know these are precious moments that cannot be turned back anymore, and that is exactly what Sue Kennedy Photography understands from mothers, giving them the rights to be called one of the most qualified baby photography providers.

Sue was not always a photographer. She was working in a bank and stuffed all her creativity away, thinking she was ‘playing it safe’. Not until later that she finally figures out how fragile life is, how unleashing her creativity was so much safer that she realized photography is the way. Facing much hardship herself, she knows the importance of life, the magic of pregnancy to the wonderful and precious moments of childhood.

Having the studio located at a strategic, artistic place in Harlow makes it possible to not travel far and still be able to get aesthetic outdoor images.

Maternity

Bump photography is one of her forte and she is able to capture the wonderful moments mothers feel, the baby hiding inside the mother and the emotion that the family feels. Sue is able to capture simple, raw, images of a family expecting their bundle of joy.

The best moments Sue would suggest to to-be-parents are before entering the 36th week of pregnancy and after week 20 scan, to capture a beautiful, noticeable beautiful bump of yours while within the safety time limit.

Newborn baby

Newborn sessions can be book before, as soon after delivery, or even during your maternity photo shoot. The very first days of your little one mark the beginning of something big and special in your life, her first day at school, first friend, first boyfriend, first job, first kid; her beginning of life is special like nothing else is.

Ideally taken within 5 to 10 days of age, mother and the baby will be strong and fresh enough to take pictures. Session can last up to three hours and unlimited time of choosing and selecting your pictures. Props can be provided or you can bring your own if you want!

Baby and Cake Smash!

From one to two years old, you can take pictures of your baby playing around and celebrating their first or second year of life! While baby photography is similar to newborn, except that it is focused on poses, cake smash is all about smashing (and/or eating) the cake and having fun! Props are on the studio, so don’t worry too much. Also, don’t be afraid to let your baby get a little messy!

The grow up package

Sue also provides a package of 3 sessions in a year, documenting the significant milestones your baby achieve. From crawling, sitting to walking, Sue is ready to document the significant growth in what seemed to be smaller on her last visit! This package comes in a free printed image of each session and have received many applaud and appreciations, because as parents face many new responsibilities, sometimes they forgot to record the moment.

Add-ons are available to print as many images as you want, USB files, to framing of your little one pictures to show off in your room, or to prevent you from flipping over your album every day.
