How to choose a newborn photographer?

Expecting a baby is truly the most exciting time of your life and you definitely want to capture the first moments of your little one’s life. With so many options out there, you must be wondering how you should choose a newborn photographer.

1. Style. Go through their portfolio, and ask to see an entire gallery of a newborn photography sessions. Make sure you love the photographer’s style, colours, accessories, props, etc. Hiring a photographer is a very personal experience, so choose images that speak to you. This is such a unique moment and it won’t be possible to create these memories again, so take some time to search and search, until you find someone that you absolutely LOVE.

2. References. Ask for references and testimonials about the photographer. Look for reviews on google or on the photographer’s website. Newborn sessions last 2-4 hours, so having a great experience is equally important as having perfect poses and images.

3. Experience. Ask how long they have been in business. Did they attend newborn photography workshops/classes? They will be handling the most important person in your life, and safety must be always the photographer’s number one priority. An experienced newborn photographer knows all the secrets about posing, lighting, and soothing and of course, he/she must be very patient.

These memories will be in your family for years to come. Your family will enjoy them together when your children get older and even when expecting their own baby. Choose a professional newborn photographer that will provide you with an amazing experience and stunning images.

Sweet Renee was 10 days fresh when I met her and she was my first newborn of 2017. I love all of her little features! I was so happy to have the opportunity to create those beautiful memories for her family.

“I brought my baby in for a session when she was 10 days old! Amanda did an amazing job! She was super friendly, and professional at the same time. The photo came out so great that I couldn’t resist buying more selection! Would definitely recommend to everyone, and looking to have my photo done at other milestones as well.” – Mandy L. {Renee’s mom}.

With love,
