Newborn photography is a way to preserve the memories of your baby’s first days, the last days they’ll ever be as tiny as they are at that moment, in the form of timeless artwork you’ll be able to enjoy for decades. To make the most of this one-time opportunity, though, you need a newborn photographer you can trust.
Finding the perfect newborn photographer isn’t always easy, but if you’re stuck at the beginning and aren’t sure where to start, these are the qualities to put on your must-have list.
Distinctive Newborn Photography Experience
While photography is an art form of its own, different types of photography take very skills. There are specific techniques, lighting angles, poses, imagery placements, and more that are unique to newborn photography compared to other types of photography. Someone who is primarily a wedding photographer or commercial photographer won’t be able to create the idyllic look of newborn photos as well as someone who specializes in newborn photography.
Newborn Safety Expertise
Your new baby is the most precious part of your world, and at just days old, they need to be handled with care while they’re posed in photos. In fact, some of the poses you see on Instagram aren’t safe for all babies or need to be created with photography tricks to keep the baby safe. Make sure your newborn photography has specialized expertise in newborn safety.
A Portfolio You Love
Photography is an art, and like any other type of artist, photographers each have their own style and artistic vision. If you’re looking for a newborn photographer, you need to find out which photographers’ styles match the feel and aesthetic you have in mind. As you browse portfolios, you might see that some photographers have one consistent style while others are more varied because they customize their sessions to match the parents’ vision. Regardless, choose a photographer with portfolio pieces you love.
Finished Products You Adore
Each photographer takes their own approach to their clients’ final portraits. Some photographers focus entirely or primarily on digital files that you can use to print and produce your newborn photos in many different ways. Other photographers take a more full-service approach, working with you directly to commission final printed pieces like canvas prints, framed prints, and albums so you can immediately place them in your home. Depending on which route you prefer, choose a photographer who offers the services you want.
