What You Need To Know Before Hiring a Newborn Photographer

1. Book early
2. All photographers are not the same. Some have a studio. Some come to your home.
3. Photographers have different styles. Posed vs. Natural. Props vs. Simple. Photojournalistic vs. Portrait.
4. Look for a photographer who specializes in newborns and demonstrates an understanding of how to safely handle, pose and transition babies.
5. Pricing varies depending on style, skill level, and years of experience.
6. Ask to see a recent client session gallery. This will give you a clear understanding of what to expect.
7. Get in the picture! Although you may not feel up to being photographed yourself, parent/baby images not only capture connection and emotion, but they provide scale to show just how tiny they were or how they fit so perfectly into your arms.
8. If siblings will be photographed with the baby, make arrangements for someone to take them home afterward.
9. Ask around and get referrals.
10. Be prepared that the studio will be warm to keep baby comfortable. Bring a bottle to “top off” the baby if needed during the session.
