We all know babies change fast. As a mother of 3 wild boys, I know first-hand how fast their sweet little personalities change and how important it is to cherish all the little details that change ever so quickly. In a blink of an eye, I went from snuggling my babies to sending them off to pre-school. It goes way too quickly.
When I think back to when my little ones were babies, there are several moments that stick out; the first time I got to hold my baby, first family photo, first bath, and all the baby snuggles. The memories that are most vivid for me are the ones I can look back at through a photograph. I can’t even begin to tell you how important my kiddos baby photos are to me. They take me back to a time that I don’t get to have again except in memories and photographs.
As important as those baby photos are to me, I wouldn’t hang them on my wall. Huh!?! What? I didn’t get professional photos of my boys done. I thought I could do it myself. I was wrong. The photos are dark, blurry with wrinkled backgrounds. I love them because that is what I have but oh how I wish I had photos I was proud to display.
Are these photos a little blurry? Yes. Was I using a tablecloth for a background? Yes. Do I know why he is not centered in the photo? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. Are you laughing yet? I am.
Are these photos still a little blurry? Yes. Did I think putting photos in black and white would distract people from the blurriness? Yep. Was I using a bed sheet for a background? Yes. Do I know why I didn’t de-wrinkle the background? No, I do not. Did I post these on social media? Yep. I sure did. It’s okay to laugh. Seriously, go ahead.
Are these photos still blurry? No. Thankfully, I had learned a few things by this time. Did I post these on social media? Yes. Would I put these on my walls? Yes. Is it important to have professional portraits of your baby? Yes!
Things to Consider
Professional photography is a luxury experience that not everyone can afford. Is the investment worth it for you? Here is a list of things to consider:
- Is it important to you to have photos of from when your baby is still a baby?
- Do you like having properly composed, well lit, in focus photos?
- Do you want photos you would be proud to hang on your walls?
- Would you like to relax knowing your baby is in good hands for their photos?
