Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Newborn Photographer

Newborn photography is a very delicate form of photography. It takes skill, patience and a lot of knowledge of newborn posing safety. Here is a list of the 5 things you should ask before hiring your newborn photographer. Written by newborn photographer Megan of Megan Grove Photography.

  1. How long have you been photographing newborns?
    • Not weddings, not seniors, not families, how long have you been working with newborns specifically? Newborns are delicate and need to be treated very carefully. It takes time to learn how to pose babies safely and how to keep them calm and comfortable during the photo session.
  2. Do you have a newborn portfolio to look through?
    • When looking at a newborn photographer’s portfolio it is important to see if the photos have a similar editing style/esthetic throughout the photos? When picking a newborn photographer, you want to know what you are getting. If you aren’t sure if your photos will look bright and airy or dark and moody, your photographer probably hasn’t landed on an editing style yet.
  3. Do you do composites for hard poses?
    • Newborn safety should be your photographer’s number 1 priority. There are certain poses that cannot be done safely without composites (combining 2 or more photos). If the photographer does these poses, they should have their hands on the baby the whole time. See photo example below.
  4. Do you have a studio?
    • Whether they have a brick-and-mortar store or if they have a studio in their home, this is the time to find out what amenities each photographer has. Do they have props, outfits, headbands etc.? Because these items can be very expensive, it is great if the photographer will provide these for your session. Many newborn photographers have fully stocked prop closets. Does yours?
  5. Are you Vaccinated?
    • I know this can be an awkward question to ask but if it is important to you, it should be important to your photographer.

I hope this list helps you make an informed decision when it comes to your baby’s newborn photos. If you are ready to schedule your newborn session with Megan Grove Photography follow this link https://megangrove.com/contact-megan/
