One of the most memorable days of any parents life, is the day their child was born. Even if you had horrible labor or things didn’t go the way you planned on the delivery room, the day your child enters the world is one you will never forget. As a mother, you are obviously a little preoccupied, and the day passes in a blur. You may not be able to fully take in all the details, but you definitely want to remember them. Photos are one of the best ways to revisit that special day, time and time again. As you make your birth plan, you should also consider having someone help you capture the day on film (it doesn’t have to be a professional!). Check out our list of photos you don’t want to miss the day your baby is born.

1. First Meeting With Mom
You’ve been carrying your baby for 9 months and there is nothing like finally being able to look your newborn in the eyes. Even if you look awful, there is no repeating that first moment when you and baby meet. You will always remember that feeling when you look back on this special photo.

2. Family Photo
Now that your baby is here, your family has immediately expanded! Make sure you capture your first family photo the day they are born. You won’t care how sweaty you were because there is nothing like finally holding your baby and feeling like a family.

3. Meeting Big Brother or Sisters
If this is not your first child, introducing the new baby to your older children is a special moment. Preserve the time all of your kids first meet each other with some sweet pictures. It will be hard to believe they were that small once too! Your older kids will have a great way to reflect back on the first time they saw their little sibling.
