There is nothing more special and amazing than your new little baby, which makes it so important to select the right photographer to capture their smallest details. There are so many people out there today with expensive cameras advertising newborn photography which makes it even more important to find someone who knows what they're doing and who has your baby's safety as their top priority. I am a qualified newborn photographer through APNPI, this certification recognizes competence and profession standard/quality standard for Newborn Photographers around the world.
Here are some questions that I think are important to ask your Newborn Photographer along with my answers.
How warm is it in your studio?
My studio is set to 25 degrees Celsius, warm enough to make baby comfortable when their skin is exposed. I also constantly monitor for signs of over heated when baby is bundled up.
Are you a registered business/Do you have insurance?
How many babies have you photographed?
I've honestly lost count of the number of babies I've captured; every year I find myself capturing more than the last year. Last year (2018) I had 66 newborns visit my home studio.
Do your props get washed after every session?
Absolutely, all items used as your session are washed/disinfected after each use.
Will my newborn be supported by human hands in all upright positions as well as any poses requiring suspension?
Yes, I usually will have mom or dad assist me with any upright poses. For all suspension poses baby is never actually suspended, baby is full supported and the suspension is an illusion.
What happens in the case of illness?
If I am sick I will reschedule or refund and help you find someone else. If you are sick I ask that you reschedule as well as I photograph many newborns and want to maintain a sanitary environment for all my clients.
