To All the Moms, Old & New | A message from a Buffalo Newborn Photographer
Read more for a special message & offer from Buffalo Newborn Photographer, Emily Karr Photography…
If you’re a mom, you know that those first few weeks with your new baby are exhausting. You may pray they go by quickly so you can get some relief from the spit up, dirty diapers, crying & sleepless nights. I promise you that it will go by more quickly than you ever dreamed. I truly believe Trace Adkins said it best with his song, “You’re gonna miss this”.
You’re gonna miss this… You’re gonna want this back…You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast.
It really does go by in the blink of an eye. Everyone says it & you may not believe it yet, but you will. I’ve been there too. My kids are pretty much all grown up & the moments that they actually need me are rare these days. I constantly question where those sweet babies I brought home from the hospital went.
Why am I telling you all of this?
There are some moments in life where hiring a professional photographer is the best decision you can make. The first year has some of the most important milestones in a baby’s life. Your baby will grow & change so much that first year… She will learn to roll, sit, stand, walk & talk… her little personality will develop into the future woman she’ll become…
This is the beginning of her entire life… How will you remember it??
I encourage all new parents to invest in professional newborn photography within the first 5-7 days. Your baby will never be as little as they are when you bring them home from the hospital. Celebrate & document that littleness before it’s gone. I have spent years mentoring with some of the best professionals in the photographic industry to develop a style that is safe for your baby & one that produces beautiful images time & again. Sharp, beautifully styled & edited images to remember these moments are what you should be after & are what I deliver. Someday your baby will wonder what she looked like when she was fresh & new. Will you have images to show her?
Print, Print, Print!
How many of you dislike your wedding images or failed to print a single one off the disk you were given? I hear that a lot in this business & it breaks my heart… the most important moments in your life are the ones that you should have displayed on your walls. They should not be sitting in a junk drawer, unprinted and unadmired. Wake up to them in the morning. Let them be the last thing you see before turning in at night. Marvel at how your family has grown. Show your children that they’re important & they matter. Let your images be the one material possession you would grab in the event of a natural disaster.
Quality Rather Than Quantity
At Emily Karr Photography, Buffalo Newborn Photographers focus on quality rather than quantity. We’ve spent 20 years in training to “get it right” & we take the time that is needed to get the very best for you. We know custom photography can be a bit pricey for some, but we promise you, it’s worth it. We wanted to let you know that budget friendly options DO exist. If you want the full experience & have to have all of your images, payment plans exist… if you’re happy with a handful of high quality images to remember this stage, there are shorter sessions for that too. We can capture the moment, or we can capture the whole story… that decision is entirely up to you. Regardless of which option you choose, know that you will always get our very best. To view some sample images, please visit our newborn gallery.

To get started, here’s a sweet little offer for you…. We are offering $99 Newborn session fees now through October 31, 2018!
To reserve a spot on our calendar, you must pay your session fee & complete an in-person or telephone consult by October 31, 2018. Your session must take place before June 30, 2019. A limited number of these sessions exist, so book early to ensure availability. Your session will include up to 90 minutes of in-studio session time with the newborn only. You can add parents & siblings & we will cover this in the consultation. Adding parents/siblings will also add some time to your session. You can expect to view approximately 20-25 images from this session at your reveal appointment approximately 2 weeks after the session. You’ll get to choose your favorite images & place your order at the Reveal. This offer covers the session fee only. All prints & products are purchased separately. All newborn sessions must be booked by two weeks prior to your baby’s due date to ensure we have room in our calendar. Ideally, these sessions will be booked by 32 weeks gestation to give us plenty of time to plan for your custom session.
