As a professional photographer who has spent several years perfecting my craft, I wanted to share a few reasons why it is worth it to hire an experienced newborn photographer. As parents we all want the best for our babies and children and when it comes to capturing your little one's portraits and milestones that shouldn't change.
An experienced newborn photographer understands the importance of safety and handling newborns with care. When hiring a professional, you can be assured that your little one is in good hands. The safety and comfort of every baby I photograph is always my top priority during a session. When your baby feels secure and comfortable that reflects in the portraits you receive.
An experienced newborn photographer knows the best techniques and poses to capture your little one in the most beautiful way. Newborn photography is a specialized service. Like any artistry, it takes time to learn. My newborn sessions are baby-led, never rushed and I will never force a baby into any poses. I use several techniques that I've learned over the years to soothe babies into those sweet cozy poses once they are ready to.
In addition to knowing newborn safety, soothing techniques, and the best poses, an experienced baby photographer will also have the right equipment and expertise to create the most perfect portraits of your baby. I will be honest, it took me a few years of trial and error, and several workshops to understand the best equipment I needed and how to use it the best ways possible. It's so much more than clicking a button on a camera. It's the knowledge of how to use that camera. Knowing what lighting to use and where to place it. Then you have all the editing and the software required to really bringing the art to life, another thing I have spent years learning to do.
Another reason to hire a professional newborn photographer is because they have a defined style and consistent portfolio. When my clients book a session with me, they know the quality that they will receive. With every session I do, the chosen images are perfected and hand-edited by me to reflect my portfolio and style.
An experienced newborn photographer knows how to capture those fleeting moments of your baby's first days that will become cherished memories for years to come. As a full service photographer, I can help you create the perfect keepsakes to remember this special time in your baby's life. From albums, to collection boxes with prints and wall art, your baby's treasured portraits don't have to stay hidden away on a usb or computer. Let's bring those files to life and create something truly unique!
The reasons I mentioned above are really just short summaries and only a few reasons why parents should hire a professional baby photographer. I could probably write a short book over the subject, but I hope this blog post was helpful in what to keep in mind when choosing someone to photograph your precious baby.
