How to choose a professional child photographer?
If you are searching for the best photographer for your child, worry not, this blog belongs to you! Here are some amazing tips to help you out-
Do your research
All professional photographers are not created equal. Some are specialised in portraits and others, more candid. Some love to work in their premises (studios) and some prefer embracing nature and some prefer making pictures of your little ones in their native surroundings. Check out their portfolios to find out if your taste matches their style. Involve yourself looking through the photographer’s galleries and website. Do not choose a photographer and expect them to do something completely different to their style. So, find someone whose images you love. Images that speak to you!
A lifetime investment
PLEASE do not choose someone who is offering you incredibly cheap prices but photography is not his forte. It is truly said, “you get what you pay for in life”. Do not be lured by the tempting discounts or do not just go with the first photographer you speak to. These precious moments will rush in a blur of sleep deprivation, nappies, and activities. So, make the most out of it. At last, if someone is best in their work, their prices will reflect that.
Handling kids is not easy especially when you are a stranger to them. Find someone who knows how to be friends with your child. Children can be unpredictable, a trained child photographer becomes friends with your child. He handles your child at the photoshoot, comforts them, calms them off etc. So, find someone who is warm and friendly and who you think will be best friends with your child.
Go by the recommendations and reviews
Undoubtedly personal recommendations will never go wrong but if you don’t have, few mouse clicks can save you from a lot of hassles. Review their websites and portfolios. Check out their social media presence as to how recent clients interact online with them. Look for the comments, feedbacks and of course the overall rating.
