Those newborn moments you simply must capture!


Those newborn moments you simply must capture! 

Meeting your baby for the first time is a truly magical experience. 

It’s a whirlwind of emotions, love, pride, contentment, relief, amazement.  And so many different reactions, smiles, tears, silence, and sheer joy. 

But somewhere in amongst all the beautiful chaos, these special moments can somehow end up a little…. Blurry! 

With that in mind, the Hush Little Babe team have put together a list of special moments you simply must capture in those first tender moments of baby’s life. 

The arrival

Giving birth really is a miracle and such a special moment. It may not be picture perfect and glamorous, but for one of the most important days of your life, we think it’s worth capturing.

You may also wish to take notice of those present at the birth, such as family, support people, midwives and doctors.

Skin to skin

This is THE MOMENT.  The rawest, realest, most pure, life-changing, magical first moment between a parent and child.

These are the kind of emotions you just want to bottle up and hold close to your heart for all of eternity. 

This moment is priceless.

The tiny details

Those teeny tiny hands and feet wont be this little for long.  And who knew a bum could be so cute!  Take some time to capture each little detail.  Its definitely something you will want to remember!


You first family photo marks the beginning of your journey into parenthood and the start of your new life together as a family.  Bless!

Just as important is the first meeting between siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles.

These long awaited, emotional-filled moments are so important to record.

Home sweet home

This feeling is surreal.  It’s one you cant quite put into words.  And you won’t have.  You’ll feel it everytime you look at this photo.  

Another day, another hundred photos….

In the coming months and years there will be endless photo opportunities and so many special occasions and milestones to capture. 

As a starting point, consider taking a photo in a similar setup or spot each month. 

Handmade wooden monthly photo props are an adorable, easy and affordable option.  A variety of options can be found at

Your future self will thank you for taking the time to freeze these beautiful, fleeting moments in life.

With love from Linda at Hush Little Babe
