Being a baby photographer in Boise, Idaho is one of my favorite things. I love being able to capture and create memories for each one of clients. The new baby stage is a very short window of time. It is so important to research a baby photographer that fits your style, expectations, and what you are wanting for your pictures. Here is a blog post on some things to think about and look for when looking to book a baby photographer
Qualities to Look for in a Baby Photographer
One of the qualities that I feel is ver important to look for is safety. Is the person that you are looking at hiring trained in safely poising your new baby? How long have they been in business? Some people might think that you can pick up a camera and take newborn pictures especially if you have had your own babies. Unfortunately, this is far from the truth. Baby photography takes training not only on posing but doing so safely. I personally have trained with the best newborn and baby photographers in the country and in the world. One of them being Kristen Mackey of Son Kissed Photography. I also just started my tenth year of newborn photography. It really blows my mind that I have been able to do what I love for so many years.
Another thing to consider is does this photographer match the style that you want for your baby pictures? Do you want posed images are do you prefer lifestyle images of you and your family in your home? These are great questions to ask yourself when looking to hire a photographer. Asking a photographer to create a session for you that doesn’t line up with their style will leave everyone feeling frustrated and disappointed. I recommend going out and finding the photographer that matches what you want and then going from there. Personally, my style is posed newborns that focuses on neutral and timeless palattes. If one of my clients want to incorporate a color or prop that is more trendy, I am more than happy to do so. It is done in a way that they will continue to love their images forever.
