Yesterday one of my favorite newborn photographers posted a fantastic article on her blog that goes over what to consider when hiring your newborn photographer. You only get ONE chance since there are no “do-overs” with newborn portraits. It is a must read so be sure to check it out!
I started my photography business in 2007 and have been specializing in newborn photography for the past 9 years. I have photographed over 400 newborns at my studio here in Ridgewood and it has been an honor to have families choose me as their newborn photographer. The newborn stage is so fleeting with no time for a do-over so it is important to do research when deciding who to hire to capture this amazing time. Finding a specialized professional who produces consistent, quality work year after year while handling your baby safely is a top priority. Unfortunately there are many businesses not operating legally, who don’t carry insurance, pay taxes and aren’t even registered with the state so doing this research is necessary. You want these images to stand the test of time and be around on your walls or in an album for decades. The images of my girls as babies are some of my most treasured possessions in my home and they bring me right back to that moment in time when they were brand new.
If you are outside of the New Jersey area and are looking for a newborn photographer, send me an email and I can give you great recommendations for all over the US.
