“A mother held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she held him, she sang: I‘ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, As long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.”
– Love You Forever by Robert Munsch
There is something so special about babies. Like most new things, newborn babies give you a sense of hope and dreams of the future. Never again will you be able to so easily hold your child, like you can when they are a baby. It is important to document these early days in your child’s life and I suggest that we book a newborn photos no further out that 8 days from birth.
You might also consider photographing them a couple of times in their first year. In these months dramatic things are happening to your baby and getting the clumsy first steps, and cute baby cheeks will be treasures you hold onto forever.
