Maternity and newborn photos are the perfect pair.

They capture the incredible journey from pregnancy to holding your precious baby in your arms. These photos tell a unique story for each family, and they can be simply and beautifully captured.

So, let’s talk about why it’s great to hire the same photographer for both your maternity and newborn sessions. Trust me, there are plenty of benefits!

One of the biggest advantages is that you’ll establish a connection with the photographer.

After the maternity session, you’ll have a better idea of how they work and get a feel for their personality.

PLUS – you’ll have actually met the person coming into your home to take pictures of your baby 😉

If you’re already a parent and your kids are joining in on the maternity photos, you’ll see how the photographer interacts and connects with them. This also lets the kids get familiar with them before the newborn family photos take place.

Because they’ll be coming to your home for the newborn photos, it’s important to feel comfortable and trust that you’ll have a great experience.

Having the same photographer ensures that your maternity and newborn photos will have a consistent style that complements each other.

It creates a seamless story from pregnancy to parenthood, whether it’s your first baby or your fifth.

If you hang the photos on the wall next to each other, they’ll coordinate well and create a lovely display. And if you decide to put them in an album, they’ll flow nicely together, giving you a complete collection of memories

Here’s another perk: booking maternity and newborn photos with the same photographer can often save you money.

Some photographers offer discounts when you book both sessions together (I’m one of them! 😉 ) You might get a reduced rate for your maternity session when you book the newborn session, or vice versa. And sometimes, they even throw in complementary prints or products as a bonus when you book both sessions.

So, to sum it all up, hiring the same photographer for your maternity and newborn photos is a fantastic idea. You’ll build a connection, enjoy a consistent style, and likely save some money by bundling your sessions. It’s all about capturing the complete journey from pregnancy to parenthood and cherishing those precious moments forever.
