Should I Book a Bump To Baby Package with Little Sweet Cheeks Photography?

Peoria, Illinois Maternity and Newborn Photographers

We are here to explain why you might want to consider our Bump to Baby package instead of only a newborn session!!!  First and foremost, if you have already chosen us to photograph your maternity session, you are more than likely planning to have your newborn photographed as well.  What are the benefits of using the same photographers?  Familiarity!!  This is especially important if you have other children that you are wanting to include at the newborn session.  It is really helpful if they have the opportunity to meet us before the new baby arrives.  So many big changes!!!  This is also a very valid reason if it’s your first child, or you have never had a new baby professionally photographed before.  The maternity session is a great time to discuss all of your concerns or hopes and dreams for the upcoming newborn session.  Even if you plan to have your maternity session outdoors, you are more than welcome to request to meet at the studio to see where we are located, as well as to view all of the props that will be available when you see us again.

Another great reason to book the bump to baby is simply to save money.  It is a better value, as this package includes a premium newborn session with family poses and additional images.  If you are not sure you are feeling up to family poses when the baby arrives, that is absolutely okay, and you may substitute the images included with the family portion for more images of just your newborn instead.  We don’t want you to feel pressured, and understand that recovery from having a baby takes time!  If this happens, just let us know when notifying us of your baby’s arrival.  

It also saves time and ensures your spot!!!  With the Bump to Baby package, you do not have to worry about remembering to schedule the newborn session, as your due date will automatically be on our calendar.  The only thing you will need to do is let us know that your beautiful new baby has made their entrance into the world!!  

Another very important aspect to booking both sessions with us is consistency.  When displaying your finished images in your home, or in an album or baby book, you may want your photos to match.  Maybe you haven’t thought about this until now, but it’s actually very important!!  Here at Little Sweet Cheeks Photography, we appreciate vibrant colors that are true to life.  Both your maternity and newborn sessions will reflect this, and we try to keep our color tones as close to how they looked in real life as possible.  Please take a moment to review these gorgeous images from a recent family that booked both maternity and newborn sessions with us, and as always, if you have any questions, please contact us at this link.
