Are you expecting? Do you know someone that is?
You DESERVE to have all of the options in regards to having your little one's newborn portraits done. Ask the right questions!
1. Ask the photographer if they specialize in newborn portraits. A photographer that shoots everything: weddings, pets, families, commercial, etc may or may not have all the knowledge and skills to properly create posed newborn images.
2. When viewing images of a photographer--ask yourself: does the baby look comfortable? Does their skin look soft and delicate? How are the images being shot? Will you get a variety of angles? Are they being posed in safe props with a spotter?
3. When discussing investment and product options-- The cheapest option is probably not the best fit for you.
--Why is the photographer charging so little? Are they full enhancing and editing your images? Are they insured? Are they spending the necessary time meeting with you before the session and after the session? Do they have expansive prop and backdrop options? Have they invested in lighting courses and the best camera lenses/equipment?
--Does the photographer offer more than just digitals? I know owning all of the digitals seems like the new trend, but what are you really going to do with them? How are you going to keep this images around for a lifetime? How will you pass them on to your children? Cheap options from Shutterfly or Snapfish will fade after a few years (there is reason why their products are cheap)
Will your photographer also help design your images into a beautiful wall design or album? There are so many more options out there than just digitals. You DESERVE the best art products for your new little one.
