Finding your Newborn Photographer Melbourne

When you are expecting a new baby, there are so many important choices to make, which is so overwhelming. One of your biggest decisions alongside choosing your hospital will be choosing your newborn photographer. You need to find a photographer that is able to capture and treasure the details of your precious baby that YOU find to be the most important

Making sure you pick the right Baby and Newborn Photographer Melbourne can be hard when you start to search on google. It can be so overwhelming with how many melbourne photographers are listed. How do you know which one is best for you?

Here are a few things to consider when searching for the perfect Baby and Nwborn Photographer:

Where is the Studio Located?

This can be really important. You want to be able to find a photographer who is not too far from you. The last thing you want to be doing is driving 2 hours to your newborn session with a new baby. So be sure to research photographers in your area. You can also type into google "Newborn Photographer Near me"

Are you looking for Posed Newborn Photography or Relaxed Lifestyle Photography?

This is really important as photographers specialise in different genres, so you need to work out what type of style you are looking for. Dont assume that a posed newborn photographer is going to be able to do lifestyle photography and vice versa. Make sure you look through all the photographers galleries to make sure thier style suits you.

Does the Photographer spealise in Newborn Photography?

Does your photographer more specialise in weddings? Or is the photographer more an outdoor family photographer? If so you may want to look into a photographer who has many years of experience in Newborn Photography, someone who is able to calm and sooth your baby and get the most from your little one within the session time.

Is your Photographer trained in Newborn Posing and Settling?

Like any career/profession, it takes time for a photographer to develop their skills, to be correctly trained in how to handle your newborn. An experienced / seasoned newborn photographer is able to guarantee consistency and excellence and this will be apparent in their final images. The safety of your newborn is also the most important thing to consider so hiring someone who is correctly trained and knows how to safely pose and handle your newborn is something that should be on the top of your list.

I have been a newborn photographer for 11 years now and not only do photography, I also teach Newborn Photographer to new photographers.

Check out thier Reviews?

Looking at previous client’s testimonials and reviews is a fabulous way to see how experienced your baby and newborn photographer is. Do a search on on thier google listing to see if they have any reviews. You can also do a search on their Facebook pageto read through any Facebook reviews they may may.

You can also have a look at thier About page on their website. All seasoned professional newborn photographers should have many reviews from happy customers so you can read about other people’s experience with them.

What is your Budget?

Finding a photography that suits your budget is so important, however finding someone that is experienced and trained is also needed. So it shouldn’t be your only consideration. Just remember that Newborn Photography is an investment! Suuch special milestones lik the arrival of your new baby is so worth it and they aremilestones worth investing in!

Most newborn photography can cost anywhere from $300 to $3000 depending on the the photographers experience and the inclusions in the packages.

What Questions should you ask your Melbourne Newborn Photographer?

Just like booking a hospital or a doctor, you want to make sure that the fit is perfect and that the service is experienced and trained in thier profession.

  • Does the Photographer have experience and training in Newborn Posing?

  • Do they have insurance?

  • Are they up to date with whooping cough and vaccinations?

Your newborn baby is so vulnerable in those first few weeks, why risk your baby’s health and saftely with a backyard photographer who only picked up a camera a few months ago?

Don’t be afraid to ask these questions.
