Once you become a parent, life becomes a never-ending array of events, including parties, doctor’s visits, and milestones. You are going to be making more memories and taking more photos than you know what to do with.
What’s important is that you don’t let these photos get lost online or on your phone.
Photo books, or albums, are one of the best ways to sort through and save your memories as new parents.
As you start your lives with your new little one, here are some of the photo book you should consider creating.
1. The Baby Shower
This is one of the first big events you will attend as new parents. There is going to be a lot of fun and excitement, as well as photos, which is why the baby shower is the perfect reason to create your first photo book. This book captures life before baby arrives and the people who surrounded you at that time. Along with posed shots, don’t forget to capture those candid moments, as well as photos of the décor and gifts.
2. The Maternity Shoot
If you are hiring a professional photographer for your maternity shoot, get them to assist you with a photobook. Many maternity photographers include photo books as part of their packages, so keep an eye out for that. Your maternity shoot deserves a photo book because it highlights your journey into motherhood.
3. The Build-Up
There’s a lot that needs to happen before baby arrives. From buying clothes to setting up the nursery. These moments that you share with your partner in the months and weeks leading up to the birth deserve to be captured and printed. It’s also a beautiful photo book to give to your child one day. You can even incorporate baby’s early days in the home into this book too.
4. The Delivery
This is not something all new parents want to capture but with the help of the right photography, delivery day photos can be moving and beautiful. Plus, you can capture as much or as little as you want to. From delivery preparations and the beginning of labor to the moment you hold your little one for the first time. This can be a truly special photo book.
5. The First Holiday Season
The first few holidays that you spend with your new addition are going to be some of the most memorable. It’s often when we take the most photos too. Whether this is Christmas, Easter, or Thanksgiving, make a point of turning these holiday firsts into a photo book for your coffee table. If you don’t necessarily want to make it about the holidays, you can also turn this into a family time photo book, which includes holidays as well as general memories.
6. The Firsts
As new parents, it’s all about the first. Baby’s first bath, the first outing, the first solid meal, the first time they sit, crawl, and walk – there are so many amazing firsts to capture and turn into a photo book.
Once you become a parent, you’re not going to want to miss a thing, which means your camera is always at the ready. Not to mention the professional photo sessions you will be scheduling in between. Don’t let these precious moments go to waste or get lost online.
