It is so important to capture these fading moments! Before you know it they will be learning to drive a car, go on a date and even head off to college. My kiddos love looking back on photos of our family when they were tiny and talking about the memories we have already made.....looking forward to so many more. 

Let me help you, capture a moment in time of their childhood. I can't slow it down, but I can capture them exactly as they are at this age in their lives!

WHY SHOULD I HIRE A NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER? SOME GREAT TIPS!


It is important to check this one off your list before baby even arrives.  Once baby arrives that 2 weeks will fly by, so be sure to have this checked off your to do list while you are still pregnant. This way the options for props can be gathered before the session. The idea of waiting to book,  you risk the chance that your chosen photographer will be all booked up and may have to either turn away your session or photograph your baby when he or she is older and no longer that squishy newborn age. Also keep in mind that as much as I adore my clients and will do everything I can for them, I do have 3 little ones of my own that are my top priority, which is why my sessions for Newborns are limited per month. 


Experience Is Necessary
Are the photographers you are searching professionals or hobbyists? Do they have a business license and liability insurance? What are their qualifications? Do they have references? Be sure you know that the person you are going to hand your newborn over to is qualified & trustworthy.

Keys Photography is licensed as well as insured.


Session Pricing
Price shouldn’t be the deciding factor. Of course your budget is important, but is is never a good idea to hire a photographer simply because they are the cheapest. A new baby is a major life event, just like a wedding. Your new family deserves to be celebrated and preserved in photographs and those photographs are an investment which will become a priceless memento for your family.
 

Style Your Session
Style is so very important.  If you love bright, bold, colorful patterns or you prefer the lighter softer options, we need to start planning to be prepared for the session that way everything can be set out and ready and the shoot can move smoothly. If we need to purchase or acquire a certain prop then we will have enough time for shipping, etc.

While looking for a newborn photographer, pay attention to their portfolio. What colors do they use? Do you see the kind of props & accessories you like?  For the most part, what you see is what you get, don’t settle for someone who can’t give you what you want.


Communication is Key
Ask lots of questions and pay attention to how and when the photographer answers them. You & your photographer should be on the same page about all the big and little details of your session as well as the photographers rates & products offerings. You should have a pretty clear understanding of the whole process from start to finish before ever booking your session.

A little research and a lot of thought should go into the decision of hiring a newborn photographer or any photographer for that matter.  It’s best to start by figuring out what you want first, then find someone who can give it to you. Please feel free to CONTACT ME with any questions, If I can’t give you what you’re looking for I will do my best to help you find someone that can!


So there we have it! Some tips for choosing a Newborn Photographer that is perfect for you and your sweet new bundle of joy! Looking forward to hearing from you if Keys Photography would be the right fit for your new addition!
