Have you ever sat with your loved ones on a comfy couch; maybe in your mother or grandmother’s home and leafed through all of the old photo albums together? What joy it brings is and what memories we share during times like these are treasures that cannot be exactly matched by any other experience.

Baby Photography Mistake #5:⁠⠀ ????????????⁠⠀ ⁠Believing you need fancy equipment and all the things.⠀ When I had my first baby I wanted alllllllll the things.

Baby Photography Mistake #4:⁠⠀ ????????????⁠ Pinterest fail posing⁠⠀ This was the big mistake I made with my first son….and my second for that matter!

Baby Photography Mistake #3:⁠ Shooting up the nose⁠ ????????????⁠ I feel like this is one of those mistakes that once you know about it, you just see it everywhere.

Baby Photography Mistake #2:⁠ Ghoul Lighting ????????????⁠⠀ Oooooh, it’s spooky halloween! ???? Except…let’s maybe not light our newborn babies like it is?

After waiting 6 years after marriage to have children, I decided to invest in professional photos with Glean and Co. when I got pregnant. I always knew I wanted a special newborn photoshoot, but instantly all her life moments became so important to me when I knew that we were becoming a family. I’ll treasure the album and photos forever and am so grateful to Paige and Glean & Co. for the memories. 

"Make time for the pictures.
Invest in the book. You will never regret seeing your memories stitched together"
