I thought I wanted some really cute sleeping newborn images while I was pregnant but for whatever reason I was too busy researching and preparing for stuff for the baby that I never looked into it.
In the hospital we got some Bounty shots which were cute and captured the hospital moment well – but it made me realize that I definitely wanted to get more professional shots done. I was so busy the first week that I put off researching photographers until day 7 and at that point I knew that I needed to find someone local fast. So I searched Google for newborn photographers in my area and found one that was nearby and most importantly I liked her portfolio and photography style. I emailed frantically and asked about appointments and I totally lucked out because the website advised to make an appointment during your third trimester! Melanie from Lavender & Sage responded quickly and gave me an appointment the following week on day 11.
