People who use the terms “don’t want to spend an arm and a leg” and “won’t break the bank” when looking for a baby photographer obviously want to be CHEAP in price.
So you’re looking for someone to photograph your sweet miracle who is cheap? Mk then.
Do you know the photographer doesn’t just hold their camera and snap a picture, right?
It doesn’t work that way.
They literally have to handle, pose and safely spot your tiny, fragile, miracle human that you prayed for, changed your life for, waited for YEARS.
Did you also buy a cheap, affordable car seat to keep your precious cargo safe?
Think about that.
Now you have this beautiful miracle after all this time of waiting. You want to remember every moment, every detail for the rest of your life because remember they’re only this teeny tiny for a split second of a time. This sweet baby with all its tiny features, so fragile and innocent. Don't blink because before you realize they will turn 12!
Now with all that being said, when you’re looking for a person, specifically a newborn photographer, who will be physically handling, moving and posing your baby I HIGHLY suggest doing your research and focusing on words like experienced, insured and professional.
Everyone has a budget when it comes to this “luxury” service. Photography isn’t a need but a want.
It’s almost a travesty to use the word cheap, discounted, affordable when looking for someone to handle your baby.
Look for a photographer, who’s work you admire and then ask if they have payment plans, you’d be surprised how many of us do! There are payment plans for everything these days so I like to offer them so that someone who loves my work but might be on a budget can still be able to work with me.
So the moral of the story is think about what “cheap” looks like, feels like, sounds like especially after all you went through. As they say, you get what you pay for. Do your research. Do you really want a person who maybe doesn’t even truly know what they’re doing handling your baby? Something to think about.
