5 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Newborn Photographer

Choosing the right newborn photographer is crucial to capture those special moments with your newborn baby. You wouldn’t ask a friend to deliver your baby just because they’ve had one themselves, nor you would ask your sibling to cut your hair because they own a pair of scissors.  It’s important to research how a photographer aims to capture the moment.Here are 5 tips to help you make the right choice.

  1. Look for experience: Newborn photography requires a special set of skills, so it’s important to look for a photographer who has experience in this area. Check their portfolio and reviews to ensure that they have successfully captured newborns before. 
  2. Style: Every photographer has their own style, so make sure to choose one whose style aligns with your vision. Do you want posed studio shots or more natural lifestyle photos? 
  3. Safety: Safety should always be your and your photographer’s number one priority. Make sure that the photographer you choose has experience in handling newborn babies and follows safe practices, is trained in safe newborn posing and first aid certified. 
  4. Read reviews: Check out reviews from previous clients to see what they say about the photographer’s professionalism, quality of work, and overall experience.
  5. Discuss Pricing: The price of newborn photography can vary greatly depending on the photographer and package options. Make sure you understand the photographer’s pricing structure and what is included in their package. It’s important to consider your budget when choosing a photographer for your newborn.

Bonus tip: Schedule in advance: Newborn photography should ideally take place within the first two weeks of the baby’s life, so it’s important to schedule in advance to ensure availability. Don’t wait until the last minute to book your photographer.
