3 things to consider when looking for a photographer
Whether you’ve never hired a family photographer before, or you’re just not exactly sure what to look for when hiring a photographer…. I hope these tips will be helpful for you! These are precious memories that you can’t get back, so it’s important that you make the right decision for YOUR family when hiring a photographer. Here are some things you might want to consider:
1. Does the photographer’s style match up with what you’re looking for? For example, what is their editing style (light and airy vs. dark and moody), what colors do their photos gravitate toward… If your home is decorated in mostly light colored neutrals, you probably don’t want to hire a photographer that specializes in bright, colorful photos, or dark and moody photos. Another example, is the photographer’s style more posed or lifestyle, or a combination of both?
2. How involved is the photographer throughout the process? Do they just show up to the session, take the pictures and then hand off the digital files to their clients a couple of weeks later? Or do they guide their clients throughout the process, from the planning stage through delivering their beautiful prints?
3. Is the photographer’s pricing in line with your budget? Every photographer prices their sessions differently… some are all inclusive (one amount that includes the session + digital images), others charge a session fee and offer collections separately. Make sure you have a clear understanding of the photographer’s pricing, and make sure that your budget is realistic and in line with your expectations. The more involved a photographer is throughout the process (from planning to ordering heirloom products, etc) the more they will charge to account for their time.
I’ve been a Houston baby photographer for ten years and I love being able to capture this special time for families! If you have any questions feel free to reach out!
When to schedule
I recommend scheduling your family session a few months in advance to ensure availability. Contact me for availability and detailed pricing.
Frequently asked questions
Yes! Clients have the option of either booking a single session or a membership. If you plan to do two or more sessions during baby’s first year (including maternity) then it would make the most sense to book the membership. Contact me and I’ll be happy to send you all the details.
II. What are your COVID policies?
One the most important things for me as a photographer (ranking right up there with providing my clients amazing service) is ensuring the safety and health of my clients. I am vaccinated and I wear a mask for all newborn sessions. I’m also happy to wear a mask for outdoor sessions if you would prefer. Clients are not required to wear masks. If you have any questions regarding these policies please let me know!
III. Is hair and make up included with the session?
Hair and make up is not included, but I have a few hair and make up artists that I’ve worked with in the past the I refer my clients to.
IV. Do you sell the digital images?
While I realize the importance of digital files in this digital world that we live in today, I also think it’s important for my clients to walk away from their session with high quality, tangible heirloom products to preserve their portraits. All of the collections include the high resolution digital files as well as a print credit that can be used toward products such as heirloom albums, fine art prints and custom framed fine art prints.
V. What are some of your favorite places to shop for maternity or newborn sessions?
My Wardrobe Style Guide that I send to all of my clients has lots of suggestions about where to shop. If I had to narrow it down to one store for moms, I would probably say Baltic Born because they have so many options that are in stock.
