3 Alternatives to the "Baby Book"

The “Baby Book” is one of those things we all feel we should create for our babies. The first child usually at least gets an attempt at the baby book.

At the end, it’s a lot of work for parents who are already sleep deprived, tired, and have a baby to take care of on a daily basis..

Newborn photography has certainly evolved over the past few years.
