4 Tips When Hiring a Newborn Photographer | West Haven CT

Are you expecting? Congratulations!  It is no doubt that you’ve started researching newborn photographers.  Here are 4 tips when hiring a newborn photographer.

  1.  Experience

One of the first questions you should have when booking your newborn photographer is how long they have been working in photography, and how many newborns they have worked with?   Have they had any training that focuses on newborns, and what kind of safety measure have they taken to make sure that this precious baby is in safe hands?

     2.  Price

Budgets for newborn sessions can vary greatly.    Length of session, location, and experience of the photographer can all impact the cost of a newborn session.  There is also a lot of behind the scenes work that a photographer puts into their business, such as insurance, specialized trainings and equipment.   All these play a role in the final cost. 

     3. Style

 Each photographer has their own style, so be sure to look through their portfolio to get a sense of what that might be.  Then choose a photographer who has pictures that you find yourself drawn to. What one person loves, might not appeal to another, so choose what speaks to YOU and your family!

      4. Reviews

While style can be a personal choice, it certainly is helpful to hear what previous clients have to say about their newborn photographer and session.  In the digital era, it is so easy to check for reviews from everything to a new doctor, to a plumber, to a new school. Same goes for newborn photographers; the best advertising is from a happy client.  Check to see what others have to say about their experience!  

 Once you consider these 4 things in hiring a newborn photographer, you’ll feel more confident in hiring the right person!
