If I could give one piece of advice for all the pregnant mamas out there, it would be to book a photography session at your house, in your natural setting, after your baby arrives. Is it a stressful and exhausting time after you get home from the hospital? YES. But…will you be happy to have them down the road? YES!!! I had a photographer come to my home for each baby within the first ten days of when they were born (ten days is the magic number before the baby acne shows up). There’s something so special and magical about those babes, and it’s so important for me to have photos of all those little details so that I never forget about that time. Every few months I find myself pulling up each child’s newborn photos and reminiscing about those early, first days of their lives.
Jack was born in Atlanta so we used a photographer there. We had already moved to Utah by the time London was born so we were able to use my good friend and local Salt Lake City Photographer, Megan Turley. She did an amazing job of capturing our little family of four and I’ll forever be grateful for these images.
