When I got married back in 2009, my photographer advised that I make a “shot list” of all of the photos I wanted captured that day.
It was great advice and I applied that same method to when I had my second child. Things were hectic the first time around giving birth, so now that I was an old pro, I really knew what I wanted as keepsakes.
It’s a busy day for any mom, so why not get organized and share your shot list with family members and friends to help you capture those special moments that will go by in a flash!
Here are some ideas of photos you can capture on baby’s first day.

* First time held by mom and dad
* Meeting the grandparents
* Meeting a sibling(s)
* Baby’s ID tag – My son didn’t have a name for most of the day, so taking a picture of the ID tag along with the number assigned to him is a cute memory of how that day went.
* Detailed shots like a bassinet plaque with their name on it or a welcome sign hanging in the room
* Baby’s feet or baby’s first footprint
* Baby’s first deep sleep
* Baby’s first touch or finger grab
I joined The Rhode Show on WPRI-12 in Providence Monday, to talk more about baby’s first photos.
