Baby Blues: Questions to Ask Before Booking a Newborn Photographer [Part 2]

Welcome back! This is a continuation of our previous blog “Baby Blues: Questions to Ask Before Booking a Newborn Photographer.”

So, what should you look for in a newborn photographer? What should you ask them? We’ve guided you through half of the process. There are still a few questions left that you should jot down and ask when you meet with your photographer.

With that mind, let’s take a look at the other questions you should:

Question # 4: What’s the Perfect Age for the Baby to Be Photographed?

Yes, this question sounds silly. After all, we’re talking about newborn babies, aren’t we? But believe it or not, some photographers do have requirements when it comes to the shoot.

Some believe the best time for the shoot is after a couple of weeks. Some believe the first day is the best time and others believe that the shoot should take place a few days after the baby is born.

Make sure you’re on the same page so you don’t end up expecting your newborn photographer to come in on the day of the delivery, only to find out that they won’t be able to make it.

Question # 5: Where Will the Shoot Take Place?

This is another question you need to ask. Will the photographer come to your house or will you have to go to their studio? Make sure you’re on the same page as them on this.

Plenty of photographers offer you a choice. Some photographers will specifically ask you to come to their studio. So make sure you discuss this beforehand before laying down a contract and hiring their services.

Question # 6: What Will They Do to Make Your Baby Comfortable?

Remember that you should never compromise on your child’s safety for a few good photos of them! This should be one of your requirements. Make sure your child is safe and comfortable during the photoshoot.

If they’re not, ask if you can postpone the shoot a couple of days later. But more than that, the newborn photographer should be able to create an environment where your child feels safe and comfortable.

Now you know what type of questions you should ask, let’s just go with one more rule: never settle for anyone who’s not a pro!
