Newborn safety is of utmost importance to me, as I’m sure it is to you.
Your newborn photographer is not ‘just’ a photographer. This person will be a caregiver and handler for your precious brand new baby for 3-4 hours. This kind of photography is quite different from family and wedding photography… from the extra warm environment in the studio, to the patience required to nurture and soothe baby, and ultimately to the importance of newborn safety and experience with newborn posing.
Just like professional wedding photography, newborn photography is an art and requires more than just talent. Special training, equipment and experience set photographers apart. Don’t settle for someone just because they offer “a disk full of images’ for a cheap price. Take time to research their work, their studio, their history. The investment for a qualified newborn photographer is worth every penny.
