Saving Your Precious Portraits | Northern VA Newborn Photographer

A portrait of your tiny newborn, held safe and secure in your loving arms, becomes a family heirloom to be treasured. Maternity photos beautifully portray your body in its final weeks of pregnancy when your curves are most defined. These are emotive portraits of you and the precious life you are carrying inside of you, as well as that precious newborn shortly after you’ve brought him or her into this world. Once we have taken these very special portraits, why would you allow the images to reside buried in a CD instead of a framed portrait displayed in your home? That is a question we will occasionally ask one of our clients here in Leesburg, VA.

While anyone could put portrait images onto a CD, we can’t understand why they would want to.

All portraits are special, but none is quite like newborn or maternity photos. A maternity portrait portrays one subject but truly features two – one of them being in-utero. That alone gives a profound depth and meaning to those pictures. A newborn portrait evokes the feelings of love you have every time you see it displayed upon the walls of your home, the home you’ve made for your precious child.

Deciding to print these photos means that you will enjoy them now and in years to come when that baby has grown up.

We have done enough newborn photography (and we are mothers, after all) that we know some feel it’s easiest just to request a CD of your pictures to have for late. You take the CD and promise yourself that you’ll order prints at a later date. However, as you raise your baby and life becomes busier, that CD collects dust and ages in your drawer! We know this because we have all been guilty of it in the past, and we hear it every day from our family clients.

You cannot hang a CD on your wall! You can, however, display a picture. At Ever After, all our products are rated to last more than 100 years, and we print everything on archival paper or other high-quality archival medium. These aren’t prints from your local pharmacy. These are professional fine art portraits you and your family can enjoy for many years, and pass down to the future generations.

The value of sitting for a portrait session can’t be found in a CD tossed into a drawer. The value is in that stunning portrait hanging on your wall for you and others to admire. The love and warmth of your family, of your newborn, or of your pregnancy radiates from that portrait in ways a CD could not.

Which would you rather have: a CD or a portrait displayed in your home?
