How to Prepare for a Newborn Photography Session

Its the busy season if you can’t tell and we love it!! Lots more babies and updates will be coming your way soon.

Happy Friday!

Choosing your newborn photographer can be a daunting task. We know it can feel like a lot of pressure to pick the right one, especially if this is your first baby. But we’re here to give you some tips on how to make sure you find the perfect fit for your family!

First things first: ask around! Your friends and family may have recommendations for photographers they’ve worked with in the past, so get their input. And don’t forget to look at reviews from other moms and dads on sites like [site name]. These are great places where you can get honest feedback from people who have been there before.

You should also consider what kind of style you want to go with when choosing a photographer—whether it’s more traditional or more whimsical, each style has its own benefits and drawbacks. If you want something more traditional but still want something that reflects your personality as well as your child’s, then you might want to look into hiring an artist-based photographer instead of an official newborn photographer like us here at Laura Brett Photography.

Choosing the right photographer for your newborn pictures is one of the most important decisions you’ll make while planning your baby’s arrival. It’s also one of the most fun parts of the process!

Here are some things to think about when choosing a photographer:

1) Style – What kind of photos do you like? Do you want something classic, like black and white? Or would you prefer something more colorful?

2) Price – How much are you willing to spend on your photos? Are there any other services that you’d like your photographer to offer, like props or professional editing?

3) Experience – How long has your photographer been in business? How many newborn clients does he or she have each year? Will it be easy for him or her to work with parents who aren’t experienced at taking photos with babies yet?

Choosing a Newborn Photographer

Choosing a newborn photographer is an exciting and important task. Finding the right person to capture your baby’s first moments is very important. You want to choose someone who has experience and is passionate about newborn photography. It is also important to choose someone who will work with you to create beautiful images that reflect your child’s personality and the love you have for them.

Here are some tips on how to find the right newborn photographer:

1) Look at their portfolio- If you have had a chance to meet with potential photographers, ask if they can show you a portfolio of past work so that you can get an idea of what kind of style they have. If not, go online and look at their website or social media profiles and see if there is anything similar to what you’re looking for. If so, then it might be worth scheduling a meeting with them!

2) Ask questions- A good way to get an idea of what kind of photographer someone is would be by asking them questions about their past experiences with clients, what equipment they use, how long it takes them to do each session, etc… You can even ask if they’ve ever worked with families before if possible!

Choosing the perfect newborn photographer for your baby’s arrival is just as important as choosing a pediatrician. After all, you’ll be spending countless hours with this person—so it’s important that they have a style and personality that matches yours.

If possible, try to meet with several photographers before making your final decision. You should also ask to see portfolios of their work, and talk to them about how they handle things like posing and lighting. Remember: the more comfortable you are with your photographer, the better your experience will be!

My camera and my kids aren’t the only things that make me who I am. My creative fire is fueled by a passion for the 80’s, southern living, and that nightly piece of chocolate that I hide from my three beautiful babies. I am so grateful for all of these things in my life because they help me be a better photographer and they inspire me—just like you.
