The Benefits of Professional Newborn Photography
When it comes to photographing your new bundle of joy, don’t leave it to chance. Hiring a professional photographer who specializes in newborn photography comes with a number of benefits, including:
Newborns are delicate creatures, and they need to be handled with care. Professional photographers have been trained in how to safely pose and handle newborns. This ensures that your baby is always safe and comfortable during the photo shoot.
As a San Diego Newborn Photographer I am passionate about safety when it comes to newborn photography. I will go above and beyond to make sure that my clients feel comfortable and that their babies are safe during their photo session.
I have taken numerous courses on newborn photography safety, I am newborn photography safety certified by the Accredited Professional Newborn Photographers International (APNPI), and I am newborn first aid certified so that you can be sure that I am taking all of the necessary precautions. When you hire me to take your newborn’s photos, you can rest assured knowing that your baby is in safe hands.
Also, it’s important to make sure that your photographer is up-to-date on all of their vaccinations, including whooping cough and influenza. Not only will this protect your baby from getting sick, but it will also give you peace of mind knowing that they’re taking the necessary precautions. I am fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and have all my other vaccines up-to-date. When you hire me to take your newborn’s photos, you can rest assured knowing that your baby is in safe hands.
As much as phone and digital cameras evolve in image quality, the overall quality of your newborn photos goes beyond the pixels. Newborn photographers have been extensively trained in posing and angles, so your beautiful newborn features are highlighted to their best and that you can keep those ever changing little details of your baby documented forever.
Professional newborn photographers have access to high quality props and outfits designed specifically for newborn babies. Outfits fit perfectly and are mostly handmade out of high quality materials. Props are designed for the right size of a newborn baby and constructed to be safe to pose your newborn in. These details will make all the difference in your photos. In addition, professional newborn photographers know how to use lighting and composition to create beautiful images that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.
Newborn photography is a delicate art. It takes a lot of patience and experience to get newborns to cooperate for photos. Professional photographers have the skills necessary to soothe and calm babies, making it possible to get the best possible shots.
Many parents worry that their baby is too fussy or won’t cooperate for photos. However, with a little bit of patience and some expert techniques, newborn photography can be a breeze. Professional photographers know how to handle babies and will be able to get the best shots with minimal fuss. Also, newborn photographers have the experience to read your baby’s cues and are respectful of your baby’s comfort level.
Another good way to gage for your photographer’s experience is for you to ask to see their portfolio and look for reviews from other parents. This will give you a good idea of what to expect and help you choose a photographer who will put your baby’s needs first.
Don’t skimp on newborn photography! Investing in a professional photographer who specializes in newborn photography is worth every penny. You’ll get beautiful, high-quality images that will last a lifetime—and peace of mind knowing that your baby was always safe and comfortable during the photo shoot.
