There are several options on where to get newborn photos done:

  1. Professional newborn photographer: Hiring a professional newborn photographer is a popular choice. They have the expertise, experience, and equipment to capture beautiful and safe newborn photos. Look for local photographers who specialize in newborn photography. Check their portfolios, read reviews, and discuss your ideas and preferences with them to find the right photographer for you.
  2. Photography studios: Many photography studios offer newborn photography services. These studios provide a controlled environment with professional lighting and props specifically designed for newborns. Research local studios in your area and inquire about their newborn photography packages and options.
  3. Home sessions: Some photographers offer newborn photo sessions in the comfort of your own home. This allows you to create a more personalized and intimate setting. The photographer will bring their equipment and props to your home and work with the available natural light to capture beautiful images.
  4. DIY (Do-It-Yourself): If you have a good camera and photography skills, you can consider taking newborn photos yourself. This option allows you to have full control over the process and can be a more budget-friendly option. However, newborn photography requires specific techniques and safety considerations, so make sure to educate yourself on newborn posing and safety guidelines before attempting it.

When choosing a photographer or studio, consider their style, portfolio, pricing, availability, and reviews. It’s also helpful to ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have had positive experiences with newborn photographers. Remember to book your session in advance, ideally during your pregnancy, as newborn photographers often have limited availability due to the narrow window of time when newborns are best photographed (within the first two weeks).

Regardless of the option you choose, prioritize the safety and comfort of your baby throughout the process. Discuss any concerns or preferences with the photographer, and make sure they have experience handling and posing newborns safely
