Really a Must: Newborn Photography
You know you're going to snap photos of Baby multiple times a day (And drive your friends crazy with all the uploads to Facebook!). So why spend money on professional newborn photography when you can "click" yourself?
The newborn state is fleeting, only lasting a few weeks. There are no do overs! When your baby is off to kindergarten (Don't blink!), you'll be able to gaze on the professional photos on the wall and remember where it all started. (You can't do that with an Instagram post!).

Wedding professionals always recommend that families hire the best photographer that suits their budget. Newborn photography is much the same; it's too important to skimp.

Babies typically triple their weight in their first year of life. That's a lot of change in a short period of time. Don't you want to have an heirloom collection of photos to document it?
Only an expert should be handling and posing your newborn baby. Have you seen the newborn photography Pinterest "fails?" They're hysterical! Try it yourself for fun, but only after you've gotten the real deal on the schedule.

Your newborn photo shoot is an opportunity to build a relationship with a photographer that can grow with your family. Annual holiday photos, family pic updates... this is going to be your go-to photog. Wouldn't it be nice if you had someone who understood your style and the personality of all your family members?

See their Face for the First Time with a Baby's Beginnings Session
Meet Baby in the Comfort of your own Home
Pregnancy is such a special time, not only for the mother to be, but also for her family and close friends. Baby's Beginnings makes it priceless by bringing that beautiful, tiny life growing inside Mother's womb into full view for everyone present to see and adore!

A Baby's Beginnings mobile session is perfect for baby showers and intimate family gatherings. Everyone can watch Baby's movements and see Baby give a little yawn, or move their tiny fingers, or turn their head as if they're trying to look right at you.
The state-of-the-art ultrasound scanning technology (sound waves) safely generates lifelike images of Baby that can then be viewed and captured in both 3D (still snap-shots) and 4D (live digital video of baby's movements). Share and re-live this experience over and over again with treasured keepsakes designed to preserve this priceless memory! Listen to your baby's own heartbeat while you look at your 3D images and 4D video.

You will want to book well in advance of your baby shower or party. The mother to be should be between 22 and 32 weeks along to obtain the best images. With such a limited window of opportunity, call ahead - you don't want to miss out on this once-in-a-life-time experience to make memories that will be treasured for the rest of your lives!

All scanning services are conducted by Priscilla Mouw, a licensed, ARDMS certified and practicing medical ultrasound technician with years of experience.
