How to choose your newborn photographer

So, you’re almost full term in your pregnancy and now you’re thinking ahead – ahead to the birth, ahead to the bundle of joy you’re about to receive and ahead to how they grow up so fast that often you blink and they’re no longer a baby! Savour the joy of your newborn baby with the services of a professional photographer. But knowing which newborn photography on the Gold Coast to choose isn’t always so straight forward. In order to make sure that get stunning photos of your bundle of joy, keep the following tips in mind when looking for the best newborn photographer on the Gold Coast.

Do they specialise in baby/newborn photography?

Although there are hundreds of professional photographers on the Gold Coast, very few actually specialise in baby/newborn photography. So, this is the first thing that you need to check out. You’ll want to work with a professional photographer who has in-depth knowledge and vast experience in this specialised field and of course have what it takes to capture stunning photos of your bundle of joy. Working with a photographer who doesn’t have expertise in this field will make your photos look amateurish.

Do they have a portfolio of previous work?

Of course, don’t take the word of a photographer when they try and convince you that they’re best suited to for your newborn photography – ask them to prove it. Ask to see their portfolio and through this, you can gauge if they are indeed best for the job.

Are they flexible in the location of the shoot?

While the idea of having a photoshoot on location may produce a great photo, its important that a photographer puts the needs and comfort of your baby first. As you’re newborn baby is extremely precious, I request all newborn photo sessions be taken in my studio at Tugun. This helps ensure that the lighting and temperature is set to level that will keep your baby comfortable at all times. With Little Orange Photography, we aim to provide a hassle-free session so your only concern will be the needs of your beautiful newborn baby.

Will they cater to your needs as a new mother or a very pregnant mother-to-be?

Choose a photographer who will understand your situation as a new mother or a very pregnant woman. They must know right away your needs and they must have what it takes to meet them at all cost. They must know how to make sure that you’re comfortable throughout the shoot and that they give you ample time when doing the poses. You should also be able to ask for a break when you feel tired or when you simply feel that you need to sit down.

As a newborn photographer on the Gold Coast and having been pregnant twice, I know the needs of a new mother or someone weeks away from giving birth. So, when you book my a newborn photography session with me, you can be assured that you’ll work with somebody who is more than willing to provide you with all the support and assistance that you’re going to need.
