12 Must Have Newborn Photos

 To preserve all of those little details of the early days, here are my twelve must have newborn photos. Whether you're doing it yourself or you hire a professional, take the time to document your new baby and life together. It really does go by so quickly !

1. Baby's face

2. Baby's hand

3. Baby's feet

4. Baby's hair

5. The nursery or wherever baby spends most of his/her time

6. A photo with mom

7. A photo with Dad

8. Details of the nursery

9. With a special family member (grandparent, sibling, pet, etc.)

 Grandparents and great grandparents are a treasure and if you're still lucky enough to have one around, PLEASE don't miss this opportunity.

10. With a special toy or heirloom

11. Keepsakes from baby's arrival

 This one doesn't necessarily have to be done within the first month. If you hire a photographer, gather all of the items you'd like photographed such as baby's hospital bracelet or welcome home outfit and have them available. This type of photo can be during those downtimes when you're taking care of baby.
