Looking back at the photo albums of my own children as newborns is still incredibly special. I have two large, framed newborn photos hanging on the wall at home, alongside many others in photo albums. Just looking back at these photos brings many fond memories. As a newborn photographer, creating family heirlooms from your newborn photos is something I am truly passionate about!
As a new parent, you will be exhausted. This is one of the only things I was sure would be true. Newborn photos are such a beautiful way to remember the early newborn days and will stay with you for the rest of your lives as a family.
In this blog, we’ll take a look at the 3 top reasons why you should consider creating a family heirloom from your newborn photos. I enjoy creating family heirloom products because babies grow up so quickly.
Having a daily reminder of how small your children once were is so special. I smile as I see photos on my wall every morning. I love seeing the tiny little hands and feet in these first images. Time really does fly and I am so grateful for the treasure of printed photos in my home!
Whether it is a family photo album, an heirloom photo gift, or even a gallery wall of beautifully thought out images, you will be sure to cherish the memories of your children.
I want you to be able to celebrate your family every day and enjoy seeing the faces on display in your home. The time goes by so quickly with our little ones. I know that seeing portraits of my children brings me so much joy.
I love knowing that my clients will receive beautiful memories to enjoy for many years to come.
Taking images is now more accessible than ever. Whether it is treasured photos of your children or your latest holiday photos, the advent of the smartphone has made it so easy to capture every day moments.
The downside, however, is that technology is not always reliable. If you have relied on your phone to save all of your special photos and it gets lost or stolen, all of those memories are gone in an instant.
Computers crash and files can become corrupt. It would be really upsetting to lose photos of your family that can’t be replaced.
This is why I highly recommend backing up all of your files to multiple places. Another wonderful option is to create heirloom albums that can be passed down through generations. Original photo albums are a wonderful way to showcase your favorite photos.
Heirloom albums make the PERFECT gift!
As a mom, and professional photographer, I know that having a home filled with photos and albums brings so much joy and sweetness to your space.
It brings photo memories together with storytelling, reminiscing and laughter to your home. I don’t know any parent, or grandparent, who wouldn’t love receiving a framed photo of their grand-baby or a whole album of precious photos.
Ordering professional heirloom photos makes a real difference between just capturing moments of your family, and actually preserving memories for a lifetime. Whether you decide to create a photo album of your newborns, or include a session with the grandparents or cousins, the whole family will be sure to treasure this gift and look at it again and again.
In my business, I have many artwork options available for you. You can choose from a professional heirloom album, professional prints or a framed gallery wall for your home. We can discuss the various options before the photo session to create a beautiful heirloom that you can pass down from generation to generation.
Documenting the first year of your child’s life is something very precious, and I am truly honored to be able to do this for families.
The big smiles make me cherish this work even more. It is one of the best gifts you can give to yourself now and in the future, but also to your baby. He or she will grow up to look back at these photos fondly and enjoy seeing themselves in a printed album or heirloom image that you saved. It helps your child not only to remember, but to remind them just how much you cherished them as a baby.
Do you know someone who is expecting, or are you growing your own family?
I absolutely love documenting these earliest days of your child, and their first year moments.
