You fall in love with your baby and wish you could be able to keep every single memory in your mind, remember what this baby looked like when you first met; all the details of his or her hair, tiny nose and hands. Well, every new mum feels the same but unfortunately they grow up so quickly that when you realize it, is difficult to remember just those little details you wanted to keep forever in your mind.

One option to keep these memories alive will be to grab your mobile phone or your camera and take the pictures of your baby. Of course they will be lovely and cute, but they will lack one thing… the touch of a professional photographer.

Newborn Photography Safety 101 – 5 Tips to Ensure your Baby is Safe on Camera

As an experienced newborn photographer and a mum myself, I know how important safety is whenever you mix babies, heavy equipment and unfamiliar locales. I speak to countless new parents who blanche with apprehension at the idea of taking their sweet new wee one out of the little nest that they have built in their own safe home – in fact, my Derbyshire studio is often one of the very first outings that a family makes, in order to capture those first few precious weeks!

Newborn photography safety is something that I am passionate about, and I want to ensure that all new mums and dads select a professional who is as meticulous about this as I am. Here is a list of five things to consider when choosing the photographer who will immortalise your new baby on camera.


They Grow Up So Fast

Having your own little bundle of joy is a feeling like no other. Having someone to cherish for the rest of your life and watch as they grow in to your spitting image is a life event which means something different to every parent. The only problem is that they grow up so fast.

The initial helplessness and their need to rely on the love and attention of you, their parents, soon evaporates as you’re running a marathon trying to keep up with them. There are no doubt times that you will stop and think how you wish they were still a tiny baby so you could hold them all day without having to chase them for a cuddle.

Memories With Newborn Photos

Memories are incredibly important for both you, the parents, and the baby. Capturing special moments such as the many firsts during the baby’s first year is something that can’t be done again so creating a photo album of newborn photos in Derbyshire is something I think every parent needs to do.

The most exciting time of your life is fast approaching and all of a sudden it seems a rush to get the last preparations completed ready for your new arrival. Though you probably started preparing as soon as you heard you were expecting there are always some preparations which may get forgotten in all the excitement. Here’s 5 things you really shouldn’t forget.

1. Set up your hospital bag. Your little lady or fella won’t tell you when they are going to arrive so you need to prepared to depart at a moment’s notice. Having all of the necessary essentials ready in a bag packed either by your front door or as close to it as possible will save your spouse time in coming to your aid.

2. Install a car seat. The first journey home with your new arrival could go pear shaped if there is no car seat ready. When giving birth a car seat will be the last thing on your mind so having it ready to go will be one less worry and a much smoother beginning to parenting.
