OC Newborn Photographer | How to choose a newborn photographer Part 1
So, you are searching for the perfect newborn photographer. Where do you start?
With so many photographers, whether amateur or professional, around these days, you would think it would be easy to find one that “fits.” However, when you are looking for the right person to capture the very first images of your beautiful new baby, you will not want to rush the decision.
Here are some of the most important things to consider while searching for the perfect newborn photographer for you and your family.
There are several different styles of photography. A great way to find out what your style is could be as simple as searching through photos online or in magazines. Are you more drawn to photos where everyone is smiling at the camera? That would be a more traditional style. Do you prefer the pictures that look like they just happened to be captured- without posing? That would be a more candid style. You can gather a great idea of Stevie Cruz’s style by glancing through the Newborn Gallery. Of course, you can contact Stevie with any special style requests as well.
It’s always a good idea to contact the photographer and get a feel of their personality. This is especially true of anyone having photos of newborns and children taken. Someone who specializes in professional business photos may have a less flexible personality than a photographer that works with babies and children. It is important to “feel them out” before booking. Another great source for researching personality is online reviews. You can find for Stevie Cruz Photography reviews here and on popular review sites such as *yelp.
Do not hire anyone that you don’t completely trust to provide the type of photographs you are seeking. Although you have input into the planning of the photo session, ultimately the photographer will be working the magic. If you do not “trust” the photographer to know what is best, then keep looking until you find someone that feels right. A good way to determine if you trust the photographer is to ask yourself, “am I just okay with their style, or, am I committed to their style?”
These factors are among the most important to consider, but, there are a few more things to take into account. See part 2 of this post next week for additional considerations. Part 2 of Choosing the Best Newborn Photographer includes Budget, Reviews, and End Product.
