Are you planning on hiring an Edmonton newborn photographer for your precious newborn? Here are some tips that will help you to decide which style and which photographer is right for you.

Being aware of what you want and knowing how to find the right newborn photographer that can match the style that you’re looking for is very important for this once in a lifetime event.

Why Should I Use a Professional Newborn Photographer?

It takes an experienced newborn photographer to know exactly how to pose a newborn baby ensuring the utmost safety. They should also know when and how to soothe a fussy baby; when they’re hungry; when they need to be rocked; and how to pose them without waking them. Not all photographers have the patience or the experience. This is a once in a lifetime event and you want to be sure that it’s done right.

How Old Should My Newborn Baby Be for a Photo Session?

For the best results, your baby should be less than 2 weeks old, as often, acne and peeling skin becomes prevalent after that 2-week window.

When Should I Book My Newborn’s Photo Shoot?

One of the biggest mistakes that pregnant women make is waiting until the last minute to book the photographer. If you give your photographer enough notice while you’re still pregnant, even though they’re probably booked for months in advance, there’s a good chance that they’ll fit you in, knowing how important these first photos are.

Should I Go to a Photography Studio or Should the Photographer come to Us?

There’s no question that the best place for a newborn shoot is at the studio because it has the proper lighting equipment already set up. That being said, you want to hire a photographer that offers both options so that in the event that you can’t make it to the studio, they can always come to you with their high end equipment.

How Do I Know What Style of Newborn Photo Session to Choose?

Some people like photojournalism where the photographer takes candid shots of the baby and some prefer posed shots. Look at the photos on their website and see which ones you like the best, and then pick the photographer that best displays that style or styles. At Artistic Creations, our photographers are experienced in all styles of photography, as demonstrated in our photo galleries.

How Come Some Photographers Are So Much Less Expensive Than Others?

Experience and what you actually get. As we’ve already mentioned, experience is very important for many reasons. The next thing that you’ll want to compare is what you’re getting for your money. Make sure that you know exactly what you’re getting so that you can compare apples to apples, keeping in mind that photographers have different styles, abilities, products and prices. The lowest price is almost never the best.
