How to choose your newborn photographer

You have just had a baby. You are exhausted, emotional & desperate for some sleep. You remember you want those precious newborn pictures, but how to find the right photographer?

 

Here are some tips on do's to make your choosing your newborn photographer easier on you.

 

 

Is the photographer registered & insured? 


When working with such small helpless babies it is so important that you find someone who is both responsible & up to the task.... no taking short cuts. Your newborn photographer running a legitimate business is oh so important! This helps weed out anyone who is not invested enough to have a legitimate business as a newborn photographer and has likely not invested in education on how to safely pose your little one. Being priced too low is usually a flag that perhaps they are not running a legitimate business. 

 

 

 

Does your newborn photographer have proper equipment?

Your newborn photographer should have an arsenal of proper posing equipment for baby. Special posing blocks & pillows are necessary to ensure comfortable and safe newborn baby posing. The exception to the rule are LIFESTYLE newborn photographers, who just photograph baby as is & being held by you ( lifestyle photographers should not be posing babies into positions without proper posing pillows)  

 

 

 

Is your newborn photographer experienced & knowledgeable?

The photographer being experienced & knowledgeable of newborn safety is a must! All professional newborn photographers will have a website with a gallery of newborn photography for you to see, as well as have proper equipment to safely pose baby. Ask questions when you are unsure, we WANT you to be comfortable trusting us with your little newborn baby. 

 

 

Have you talked to/met your newborn photographer? 

Here at Sharon Watkins Photography we are HUGE on personal connection! We want parents to feel at ease as well taken care of during your session, as well as work closely with other maternal health providers to ensure the best service to our moms. 

If you did not meet your photographer for a maternity session we strongly suggest at least being able to chat on phone with them and see how you vibe. Being comfortable with who you are entrusting your baby with is key!

 

 

 

Have you seen reviews & pricing? 

Lastly, we know we cannot make EVERYONE happy, but we strive to! Reviews will give you a good idea of how your photographer works and help you make an educated decision. Also educate yourself on your chosen photographers pricing. Photographers are like gifts, come in all shapes & sizes! Some photographers only include digital images, other photographers only product and no digital images, others are a mix between offering both options... be sure to ask questions if you are confused on what products are included. Photographers come in all budgets for everyone, but remember everyone prices themselves to their worth... your newborn photography session is an investment on a once in a lifetime moment!

 

 

 

 

I hope this blog post will be useful in helping you choose the right newborn photographer for you!
