Congratulations if you recently learned that you’re pregnant! It’s a wonderful moment for both you and your loved ones! No need for us to tell you that things are about to get a whole lot better (of course!). Having a child is a tremendous blessing!
As a soon-to-be parent, one of your first considerations will be who will photograph your infant when they arrive.
Choosing a baby photographer in Perth is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.
- Research baby photographers available in your city
In order to ensure that your infant will be photographed in the best possible light, it’s a good idea to begin exploring your options early on in your pregnancy. The sooner you get in touch, the more likely it is that they will be able to accommodate you.
Despite the abundance of newborn photographers, most are fully booked well in ahead.
After the birth, many families struggle to find a sitter who is available to take care of their child.
My advice is to choose a photographer during the time of your 20-week ultrasound to prevent being pushed away from your favourite photographer later on.
- Look for a safety-trained photographer
I must stress enough how important it is to take your time when selecting a baby photographer.
As a new parent, you’ll be entrusting a stranger with the care of your newborn child at a critical time: the first few days after they’re born. You must be confident that your photographer can handle your child in a secure manner.
Are you satisfied with the way they’ve proved their expertise and credentials? Yes, they talk about it and demonstrate it on their website. Do they have any experience photographing newborns? In order to prevent the baby from rolling and falling from props like baskets and buckets, can they show us how they go about creating their baby photography poses safely?
You’ll be spend up to 4 hours with your photographer on day of your newborn session, so it’s crucial that you’re comfortable with them.
There are some families who cannot afford the most expensive photographers in their area, and they are looking for a photographer who can meet their needs. Families that care more about picture quality, customer service, and a wide selection of wall art products are less concerned with cost.
Make a list of photographers based on various factors that are most important to you. A photographer you can’t afford to waste both their and your time should be off your list.
There are differences in the quality of photographs and services offered by photographers, so choosing one based solely on pricing is a bad idea.
- Studio space
There are several photographers that do not have their own studios. Some photographers bring a studio to your house and work there. A small selection of props & lighting equipment is all that these photographers normally bring with them. Another option is to use your home or office as a photography studio where you can keep all of your equipment and set up your portrait sessions.
To help you choose a photographer, consider about whether you like the convenience of visiting to a photographer’s studio or if you want to have the sessions done at home.
Even while there are both advantages and disadvantages of each, studio visits eliminate the need to clean up after yourself!
