Hiring a newborn photographer is an important decision to make. Did you know when hiring a newborn photographer it is important to hire a professional who has vast training and experience? A professional newborn photographer must have extensive training and experience handling newborns as being a newborn photographer is far from being just about “photography”. You want to give your little loved one to a newborn photographer who is able to comfort, soothe and pose a newborn safely. How can you tell if someone is experienced at handling newborns? They mention their experience on their website and their newborn images show comfortable, perfectly posed newborns with relaxed expressions. Newborns are not posed in an awkward way or half-posed.
What training do I have?
I have been trained in one to one workshops by the best in the UK and Hungary. I also continuously update my knowledge by doing online workshops from incredible newborn photographers in America and Australia. Safety of your baby is my top priority,I am very aware and utilise safety standards in the industry. I have been a newborn photographer for over 5 years and in that time have photographed hundreds of newborns. As I’m so experienced, my clients often call me the “baby whisperer” and ask me, “how did you manage to do that?”
How Do I Choose?
There are many newborn photographers in Manchester, the competition is high. Do you like the style of the photographer’s images? Is he or she minimal, vintage, rustic, colourful, natural etc? Then check their experience and training. Do they belong to a photography association? I am proud member of Guild Photographers and take part of monthly photography competitions. Do the newborns look comfortable and perfectly posed? Even natural posing should look perfect! Choose a professional that knows what they are doing as this is your precious newborn. Do not simply go for someone because their price is the lowest as there is usually a reason for it (they might be still building their portfolio).
