Newborn photography is a very popular area of the profession that tends to attract a large number of beginning photographers. Marketing specialists teach new photographers that if they can find maternity and newborn clients that they’ll have these clients for life and that with these clients, they eventually won’t have to do any more marketing. Unfortunately, many photographers do not have the experience and proper training to fully understand how to safely and competently photograph a newborn. Then, even if things go smoothly during the photo session, beginning photographers may find that when they download their photos there are problems with exposure, lighting, focus, color, contrast or overall styling making the images unuseable. This is one of every photographer’s biggest nightmares, and soon becomes a huge disappointment for the parents of the newborn. Newborn photography has to be done right the very first time. A baby is a newborn only for a couple of weeks, and the photo session optimally should take place when the newborn is between six and 12 days old. The photographer you hire for your newborn portraits should have already photographed many, many newborns and have a perfect safety record. Your photographer should strictly adhere to all safety measures so that your newborn is never in danger of being harmed in any way. Your photographer should have full understanding of the use of their equipment in the specific environment in which the photo session will take place. There should also always be secondary equipment that your photographer brings to the shoot in the event that some part of the primary equipment fails. This can happen to any photographer no matter how experienced they are. Their professionalism lies in their ability to execute Plan B if Plan A goes ary, with no significant difference in the quality of product or service delivered.newborn baby information page.
