Many families are hiring a photographer to document those first moments to have peace of mind in remembering every detail. Typically held within the first 24-48 hours after your baby’s birth, this lifestyle session will take place when those emotions are still high and everything is brand new. Photos of your little one's yawns, itty bitty baby feet, fingers, and flakey skin to keep with you always. My favorite part of these sessions are the older siblings meeting the baby for the first time. Seeing the anticipation of meeting the new brother or sister and that sincerest moment of love at first sight is a moment you don't ever want to forget.
As a mom, we had a photographer come to the hospital when my first three kids met the baby brother. For me it was a pretty profound “this is it” moment. This is my family. This is the first time we are all together. This is us! I wanted to have their awe and smiles and touches to remember always and to be able to revisit that moment they all fell in love with him.
