With such a small window of opportunity for capturing newborn photos that you don’t want to leave this job to just anyone.

There is no doubt that there is a difference in the quality that a professional photographer can provide but is it worth it??


Why you should Hire a professional newborn photographer.?

Newborn photography isn’t just about technical understanding, it comes with a whole new set of skills.  Understanding how to soothe babies, the ability to pose them safely and comfortably, learning about newborn physiology as well as having tons of patience.

As a professional newborn photographer, your baby’s safety is always my first priority.  I have trained extensively in safe posing with the worlds leading photographers.  I will never compromise your baby’s safety for the sake of getting a photo.  As well as this I have a certificate in newborn and child first aid so you can rest assured that your baby is in the best hands.  All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the experience.

Why it is important to hire a newborn photographer

Psychologists believe that displaying your family portraits can actually boost your child's self esteem.  Hanging your portraits on the wall show your children that you are a family, a crew, a unit.  It says to your child “we love you, you are important to us”.  

With modern smart phones we all have a camera at our fingertips.  Many of us tend to store these photos on our devices and they never see the light of day or worse yet, on a disc or hard drive stuffed in a drawer.  What message does this send to our children about how much they mean to us.

'For children in particular, looking at photographs is part of the socialising process; learning who you are and where you fit into the family. By displaying photographs of our children at different stages of their lives, we are making a very public statement that we are proud of them.’  [1]

Still on the fence about hiring a newborn photographer?

Think how many snapshots you have of your family that you are not in because you were the one taking the photo or photos where you have all tried to squeeze in to the frame with someone holding the camera at arms length! This is where I come in.  My job is to capture all of you together in a natural relaxed way.  No stiff posing, just capturing the love between you and your brand new baby.  I use beautiful soft lighting to flatter you and your baby.  

Everyone will tell you that they don’t stay this little for very long and it’s true!  There is such a short window of opportunity to capture newborn photographs (before the baby is 14 days old).  You will want to record how small they were, how they fit perfectly in your hands.

Having your portraits taken is an experience.  It’s a chance to dress up and have your hair and make up done.  Yes it is a luxury, but it is an investment that will be treasured by you, your children and generations to come.
