You are expecting a new baby, congratulations!

And you want to get some photos done, I totally get it, but where do you start in finding a newborn photographer? First things first, you need to figure out what kind of newborn photos you love.

What would you love to hang on your walls? What do you want in a beautiful album, to reflect on? How do you want to look back on this season and remember? Because chances are it WILL be blurry- new babies are one of the greatest gifts ever, but they do tend to make memory go very hazy. And as gorgeous as those fuzzy iPhone photos are- they tend to not really reflect the beauty of this season, which is where the right newborn photographer comes in.

There are two distinct styles to newborn photos with a lot of people offering something in between, and it is entirely a matter of taste with what you are looking for, below are a few tips for you to think about and a good place to start in hunting out the right fit for you.

All newborn photographers will be aiming to provide you beautiful images of your little love but questions to ask yourself may be:

  1. Do I like the idea of newborn photos in a studio or at home, will I want to go anywhere or do I not want to have to tidy up my home?
  2. Do I want digital images I can print myself? One beautiful frames image? Or a combination? And how many images would I like?
  3. Do I want a posed session- where baby is often wrapped tightly and positioned in different situations? Or do I want a natural session, where baby is not tightly swaddled and props are not used?
  4. Do I want to combine it with maternity or birth photos?
