Now you’re debating having your brand new bundle of joy photographed to capture this wondrous moment in everyone’s life. Debate no more! If this is your first baby, you are likely to quickly learn how brief the baby stage is and not capturing this moment could be something you regret later in life. It’s hard to know where to start while searching for a newborn photographer to capture your infant, but here are some ideas to aid you to make that vitally important decision.
One essential factor is to figure out what style you like. There’s two types of creative newborn photography, lifestyle and stylized. Lifestyle is geared toward a much more laid back session during which the photographer comes to you and photographs the newborn in his or her natural environment. The new born baby is usually clothed and photographed close next to mom, dad perhaps even family pets. On the other hand, during a stylized session, the newborn is not clothed (private areas are always hidden) and fabrics, baskets, along with the implementation of mom and dad being a prop, are typical. Often times these sessions are done in a controlled environment where the heat and lighting are vital for obtaining a resting curled up baby. In many images, the newborn is positioned to showcase the essence and beauty of the baby to include the face, hands and feet and many time accessories are added. Each style has its own art form; it’s only a matter of what fits the style you are going after!
Take a moment and have a look at newborn photographer’s website. I suggest you carry out a Google search for newborn photographers in your city. Does the photographer concentrate on newborn photography? How many newborn sessions are provided on their blog or website? Execute as much research as you can ahead of your newborn’s birth. Photographers book months in advance and getting on their schedule is critical. You don’t need to call after the baby gets there simply because you may not even get a photographer to be able to photograph your newborn around the acceptable newborn timeframe and that is during the first two weeks after delivery. Schedule early as you need to familiarize yourself with the individual who will likely to be touching your child for hours directly immediately following birth.
When you have your favorite baby photographers written down, start making telephone calls. As a photographer, I realize price is extremely important to you; however, here are a few concerns that will be extremely crucial to your decision making over exactly how much it will cost you. Take a look at a few pre-determined questions to inquire about:
1. Do you possess proper insurance coverage? 2. Have you ever posed newborns in glass containers? 3. How long have you been photographing newborn babies? 4. What number newborns do you typically photograph a year? 5. Do you limit the volume of babies you accept a month? 6. What are the expectations from the session?
These are just a handful; yet, the primary two questions are the most important. If they are not insured, move on – PERIOD! If the newborn photographer is a trustworthy photographer, they’ll have insurance. You want to confirm they are protected if something happens to your newborn during the session. This should remove a lot of baby photographers from your list right from the start.
If they have examples of newborn babies posed in glassware, don’t even pick up the telephone to inquire. Why would you consider taking your brand-new baby to a photographer who will chance placing her in glass which could shatter under pressure?
