WHY do expecting parents, new mums and new dads come to me for newborn photographs?
They are exhausted. Growing a baby is hard work! Giving birth to a baby is painful. Recovering from a caesarean is not a walk in the park. When you’ve been through so much to get to the point of having a baby, would you really want to spend hours planning a photoshoot, purchasing the props, the fabrics, the outfits, the lighting, the DSLR and lenses? Wait…that sounds expensive!
New Parents realise getting everything that is required to take a photo close to that of a newborn photographer is going to cost FAR MORE than just paying one to do it for you. They don’t need to overrun a whole room in their house with cute little baby hats,,flokatis, huge lights and softboxes, beanbags, stands, buckets, nests, crates, boxes and beds. They let their photographer do that. It really is a no brainer.
