Baby Russ 4 months old | by award-winning NJ Baby Photographer, Pamira Bezmen
Oh yes, I know, we want them tiny and teeny in the newborn photos. But what happens if you could not get yourself out of the home within that first week post-partum? What if you were not ready to make the financial investment right at that moment? Or what if you did not want to hire just any old photographer and wanted to take some more time to research until you felt confident in your choice?
What happens is this: Your baby gets bigger, older and more independent, starting to show more personality.
Isn't that pure delight?
I think so!
Just make sure to do your research.
Review the portfolio of your photographer prospects to make sure that they have CONSISTENTLY GORGEOUS IMAGES of DIFFERENT BABIES in the AGE RANGE of YOUR OWN BABY.
Better yet, pick a photographer who belongs to a highly respected professional organization such as PPA (Professional Photographers or America) or NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers).
This is the best advice I can give you.
We all have different tastes and preferences, so pick a photographer whose style you ADORE. And make sure they can do it over and over and over again for your baby as well.
You don't want to pick someone who accidentally took several cute pics of their own baby or nephew and put them up on their web site.
Make a list and call up your top photographers. Ask them questions about:
Don't worry so much about "How much is an 8x10" print?" In the grand scheme of things, that should really not be the reason you trusted someone with your baby's safety and your life's memories.
The difference between $50 and $100 is negligible over the next 10 years, but the value of quality images is what will matter most over time. Specifically if that photographer delivered those gorgeous images while ensuring the safety and well-being of your precious baby.
I absolutely loved meeting this very sweet family. They knew from the get-go that they were not going to invest a million dollars in this project. But they also knew that they wanted a gorgeous, large family portrait for their big wall. Something they could look at every day to remind them of what matters in life. For their precious son to see every day and remember how much he is loved. How he will always have his mom and dad to hold him, love him, and protect him.
I am honored that I could deliver it to them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting me and choosing me!
