How soon should you book your Boston Newborn Photographer?
Choosing your Boston Newborn Photographer may feel a little daunting since your choices are endless. There's many factors to consider when decided which Boston Newborn Photographer is right for you and your family. The first major piece before booking is to decide what kind of session you want. Do you prefer a wrapped in studio newborn session, or do you want an in home lifestyle session? Do your research and see which style suits you. Once you've chosen your style then you can research Boston Newborn Photographer's to check out your options. Look at their portfolios to see if their style speaks to you.
Once you've found a few Boston Newborn Photographers who's styles seem to align with you and your lifestyle check out their investment pages (or pricing). We all have a budget. You should have an idea in your head as to what your budget may be. Let me be the first to say that this is an investment. You are investing in capturing memories of your newborn who absolutely grow way too fast and you will treasure these photos. You also absolutely get what you pay for, so spending between $500-1,000 is a very normal range. You want someone who is experienced with newborns and newborn safety (especially when choosing a wrapped and posed in studio newborn photographer). Lifestyle photographers don't tend to touch or move baby much, and we don't tend to pose them. I have my parents move and wrap baby most of the time.
So, once you've found a few photographers you like, email them or call them. Chat with them and see what they offer with their packages and if their personality meshes with yours. You want someone you will get along with! Then see their availability. Ideally booking as soon as you've decided that you want a newborn session is best. A few months in advance because good Boston Newborn Photographers book up quickly and usually only take a few sessions a month!
Lastly, enjoy your session! Soak up the moments with your newborn. They grow so stinkin fast and soon they'll be a chubby toddler running around with sticky faces and drool!
