Just about every mobile phone now comes with a powerful on-board camera. And just about every second person now aspires to be a professional photographer. The question is a good one. Why bother with professional newborn photography? Why invest in newborn portraiture when you can just snap away yourself? Or get a friend with a fancy-looking camera to do so?
Reasons to Choose Professional Newborn Photography
There are many reasons why investing in posed newborn photography is so worth it. Let me mention three.
Reason 1 – Owning iconic newborn images of your little treasure.
Yes, we can all point and shoot a camera. However, capturing the popular, iconic newborn images we all love takes experience and skill. Yes, those curly, sleepy poses don’t just happen. Hundreds of hours go into perfecting the art of professional newborn photography. The right equipment is needed, too. If you desire to own iconic newborn images of your own little bub, make the decision to invest in newborn portraiture with an expert.
Reason 2 – Enjoying the safety, comfort and convenience of a professional.
Working with an experience pro not only ensures you’ll get the beautiful, iconic images you’re after, but more importantly, it assures you of the safety of your child. It really is a case of “Don’t try this at home, folks!” when it comes to posed newborn photography.
A professional newborn photographer will not only be up to date with the required vaccinations necessary in working with newborns but will also have the experience of handling your little treasure safely and securely. When you know you’re in good hands, you can actually rest and enjoy the experience yourself.
Reason 3 – Getting images printed, framed or mounted.
We live in a day when the average person will take 25,000 selfies in their lifetime. It seems everyone everywhere is snapping away. What percentage of these pictures are worth printing, framing or being wall mounted? There’s a lot truth in the sentiment that we could be photo-less within a decade and that we should print the photographs we want to preserve.
If you’re going to invest in printed, framed or mounted images, then it’s certainly worth making sure the images are of the best quality, right? And this is doubly true when talking about capturing those first few days of a newborn’s life, moments that pass so very quickly.
In fifteen years as a photographer, I have yet to hear a single person regret making the investment in capturing those unforgettable infant memories. The list of those who regret not doing so is very long. Too long.
