Newborn photography is a recent yet growing trend, and it is easy to see why they are becoming increasingly popular in Singapore. After all, there is no better way to welcome your bundle of joy into the world than with a photoshoot! Capturing this precious moment in your child’s life is also an excellent way to preserve it in time, creating memories for the family and baby that will last for a lifetime.

If you plan on jumping aboard this trend, the photographer you choose plays a significant role in creating these treasured photos. Their expertise, craft, and creativity are crucial in producing a work of art that you can proudly display to friends and family. Of course, as a baseline, you will want someone who is accommodating, experienced, and talented. However, beyond that, there are various other factors to consider. Here are several top tips to keep in mind to help you identify your ideal newborn photographer to capture the perfect family portrait.

Tip #1: Check The Photographer’s Reviews And Portfolio

    Just as you would check out what others are saying about a product before investing in it, newborn photography reviews are one of the best ways to determine the capability of a photographer. A sizeable number of positive reviews is a good indicator of their skills and ability to impress clients. We recommend taking the time to peruse several reviews to have a better insight into why they come highly recommended and what you can expect during the baby photoshoot.

    Still not convinced? In that case, you can step up your research by reviewing their portfolio. In fact, we highly recommend that you do so! After all, only you will understand what you like best. By inspecting their photo gallery for yourself, you can have a deeper insight into the photographer’s skill level and whether their style best matches your needs and expectations. At the end of the day, your preferences matter most.

    Tip #2: Ensure The Photographer’s Style Aligns With Your Wants

      There is a reason why we recommend reviewing a photographer’s portfolio and observing how the babies are photographed before committing to a decision. Photography is an art, and like various other art forms, each photographer has their unique style. However, what works for one customer might not be someone else’s cup of tea. So, it is advisable to have clear expectations of what you want in mind to ensure your photographer’s style aligns with your preferences and what you would like to see in the final product.

      Tip #3: Prioritise Your Baby’s Comfort And Safety

        Naturally, newborn babies aren’t going to be used to being in front of a camera or studio lighting. Moreover, you can expect the photographer to manoeuvre your child into different positions if you want to capture various poses. These experiences may place undue stress on your newborn, and the last thing you want to see in your pictures is a vexed and pouty baby.

        In this sense, your baby’s comfort and safety during the photography session is paramount. You’d want to engage a photographer who has your child’s best interest and well-being at heart and understands how to pose them with care and in a manner that will not hurt them. So, speak with your shortlisted candidate beforehand to learn how they manage anxious infants during the baby photoshoot.

        Tip #4: Check What Is Included In The Package

          Plenty of setup, styling, and props go into snapping the perfect pictures of your newborn, not to mention the editing and touch-ups required after the initial baby photoshoot. There is also the matter of how many printed copies you will receive, what size they are, and how you can access the digital files. These details, including their inclusion in the photography package and the cost, should be cleared up during your initial discussions with the photographer before you book a date with the studio.

          Choosing an experienced, talented photographer specialising in newborn photography is essential to get the best photos of your new bundle of joy. Fortunately, with our helpful tips in mind, you can ensure your search for the ideal photographer is seamless and fruitful.
