Choosing the best newborn photographer for you

I know how difficult it can be to find the right photographer for you and your family. So, how do you choose the right Newborn Photographer?
Do you just google some in your area and look for the cheapest price? Do you just pick the one the pictures on the website looks the best? Or do you take the time and ask different photographers questions? Questions about how they will handle your precious new little baby, how much experience they have with newborns, how they handle a difficult baby being fussy, how long they have been in business, have they had any trainings with newborns.......???
You should think about all this when trying to find the best photographer for your newborn pictures. I am trained in infant CPR and I get my regular vacinations to make sure I am as safe as possible with your new little baby. I do not want to take the chance of ever injuring or getting a baby sick, it is defintelty not worth the risk. Babies are not props for us photographers to play with, they are precious little lives that you trust us as professionals to keep safe. There are tons of photographers out there offering newborn portraits but are they really that good with handling babies? I often get emails of new parents trying to book a last minute newborn session with me. They already had newborn pictures done and they didn't came out how they were hoping. I also had some parents telling me the other photographer did some very unprofessional stuff with the baby. Sadly, in most cases, it is already too late by then to get you in my schedule. I am not saying that I will be the photographer to go with but please make sure you choose a photographer who will handle your newborn as safely as you would. The cheapest priced photographer is not always the best to go with. This special time in your babies life has only a small window of time for us to capture their sweet newness. So many little details disappear all to soon. As a professionally trained newborn photographer I am honored every time I book a newborn session. Thank you for trusting me with this new special life. I am so happy to do what I love every single day, and I owe it all to you.
