3 Things to Look for in A Newborn Photography Studio

Bringing a child into the world is one of the most exciting, nerve-racking, beautiful experiences in life, and one that you'll remember forever. If you're searching for a newborn photographer to help capture this memory, there are a few things to keep in mind to make sure your newborn photographs are not only stunning, but that your baby is safe and comfortable throughout the process. Keep reading to see three things to look for in order to find the best newborn photography studio.

1. Experience

Newborn photography has some key differences from other types of family photography, so it's crucial that you choose an experienced photographer that has worked with newborns in the past. Knowledgeable newborn photographers know what shooting positions are safe for a newborn, and which ones aren't. For example, parents often find newborn photos on Pinterest, Instagram or similar sites and wish to recreate them. These images are usually photoshopped, and attempting to recreate them naturally can be very unsafe for a newborn child.

An experienced photographer can spot these types of poses, and will know not to attempt them in “real life.” They can either offer a safer way to capture the look you're going for, or create those looks in Photoshop. For your babies safety, it's extremely important to choose a photographer with extensive experience. Why put your baby at risk?

2. Choose a Studio that Will Work with Your Style

Parents frequently try to style their newborn's photo shoot with the design of the baby's nursery in mind, or take the photos in the nursery itself. While this can result in great newborn photos, we recommend thinking outside the box to create a photo shoot theme that you'll love for years to come. For example, if you and your spouse love to travel, you may opt for an adventure theme, or you could feature a favorite sports team or a film that you both love.

For the most unique and special photos, look for photographers that will collaborate with you to create a style that matches your own. Creative photographers will bring interesting ideas to the table, and work with you every step of the way.

3. Think Long-Term

As your child grows you'll want beautiful photographs to document every stage of their journey. Look for a photographer that you really connect to, and one that can photograph your child for years to come. They'll help ensure that heirloom photographs you pass down will never seem out of style. It's also a good idea to look for photography studios that offer convenient, economical packages.

At Little Nest, our Heirloom program allows parents to come in anytime during their first year for additional photographs, so you can document grandparent sessions, birthdays, and milestone events, all for an affordable price. In addition, working with the same team of photographers over time can allow you to work with a theme, and use it throughout multiple photography sessions. All in all, choose a photography studio that makes it easy to capture beautiful images of your newborn as they grow.
