Happy Snaps: Choosing a Photographer for Your Newborn

Seeing your child for the first time is a truly magical moment. What better way to capture the wonder of this experience than with a professional photo of your new family member? When having baby photos taken, you want the final images to be as perfect as your child is, so it’s important to carefully choose the right photographer.

Baby photosHere are three tips to help you do so.

Plan in Advance

Research and compare local photographers well before you go into labour! Few periods of your life will be as hectic as the time immediately after bringing a new face into the world – you simply won’t have time to make a careful selection. The best photographers are usually in high demand, so consider booking well in advance.

View Their Gallery

When a photographer catches your attention, be sure to peruse a decent number of their past works. Make sure baby photography is something they specialise in, and check if their previous photos of children are as beautiful as you want yours to be. You are trusting this person with preserving one of your earliest memories of your new child, so don’t rely on great landscape or wedding photography as proof of their ability.
