Baby photography is an exciting way to capture memories of your baby’s first few months. It’s also an excellent gift for parents who want to preserve these precious moments forever.
Are you wondering how to find the perfect newborn and baby photographer for your family?
Ask family members or friends for recommendations.
If you’re looking for a newborn photographer in London, ask family members or friends for referrals. You might even consider asking your doctor or midwife for suggestions, especially if you have a private ob-gyn at the Portland Hospital, Kensington Wing or at Lindo Wing.
check out online portfolios
Once you find a few photographers you like, check out their websites and see what kind of work they do. Look at their portfolio and see how they capture the essence of your child. Ask them questions about their style and process. Where will the session be in-home or a studio?
It’s important to read reviews before hiring a baby photographer. This will help you find out how other clients feel about the service they received. If the photographer meets your expectations and what past clients loved about their experience and service.
contact them directly
If you’re looking for a professional baby photographer, contact them directly. You can do so by sending an email with your questions. I always recommend getting on the phone and having a quick chat. How does she/he make you feel? Do you feel heard and understood? Do you have the same ideas for the session? Working with babies needs a lot of patience. Also, ensure they are professional, insured and trained in baby wrapping and posing.
Last but not least, you should also ask them about their pricing structure. There are many different ways how photographers operate. All-inclusive, collections, a la carte or even by the hour.
If they charge by the hour, make sure you understand exactly what that means. Are there any hidden fees? Do they offer discounts for multiple sessions? What happens if you need more than one session? How many images are included.
