You are probably at the stage where strangers are stopping you in the street and they are letting you know their opinion, as to whether you are having a boy or a girl. You may already be getting advice from your work colleagues, family and friends about what it is like to be a parent. This guidance can fit into a few categories ranging from semi-helpful to little pearls of wisdom.
Some people share real nuggets of wisdom with each other. What advice have you been given already?
Here are our top 5 tips for when baby arrives.
- Ask close friends or family to bring you a nice home cooked meal in your first few weeks if coming to visit you. You really will appreciate this!
- The best advice? Ignore all the other advice. Ask the questions you want answers to, follow your instincts and ignore all unsolicited advice.
- Be the kind of person that you want your child to be.
- When pouring your guts out to the baby at 3:00 am, make sure the monitor is turned off!
- You will also need to learn how to eat one handed!
About Laura Joy Photography
I am an affordable photographer specialising in Newborn Portraits in Glasgow. Newborn babies are only tiny for such a short time, so capturing these portraits in the first ten days means you can treasure these moments for a lifetime. Laura Joy’s Newborn Photography Experience takes place when a baby is aged between 5 and 10 days old. The main reason is because your newborn is still sleepy and more likely to curl up in to “womb-like” poses. We recommend that you book your Newborn Photography Experience at scan stage. It is better to be organised for when baby arrives, as the first few weeks of parenthood will fly by and you will miss the opportunity. Your newborn does not stay at this stage for very long.
Newborn Portraits make beautiful gifts for grandparents and family members. Equally, it offers you the opportunity to use the images for personalised Birth Announcements, Thank You cards and Christening or Naming Ceremony invitations. Laura Joy Photography offers Gift Vouchers for the Newborn Photography Experience which are unique and wonderful baby shower gifts.
If you are looking for a professional, to capture beautiful images of your newborn (up to 10 days old), please get in touch at scan stage to guarantee a space for your due date. Please check out my Lookbook and get in touch.
