Newborn Photography Brooklyn NY | How to Choose a Newborn Photographer | Charlotte

When it comes to choosing a newborn photographer in Brooklyn NY or anywhere for that matter, there are a few things you should check and ask yourself before making a final decision on who to hire.

Here is a list of “How to Choose a Newborn Photographer”:

  • Portfolio: Take some time and look through galleries, recent work and FB page. Make sure the images you see are compatible with your personal style and aesthetics. Look at the colors, props and styling used to make sure it is something that you can envision displayed in your home and proud to show off.
  •  Testimonials & Reviews: This will help you get an idea of the photographer’s demeanor and customer service. You want to make sure past clients are happy and mention how the photographer took great care of their new precious life. Meeting turn around times, and final quality of the images are also important factors to check.
  • Experience: To me, this is one of the most important factors to consider. You want to make sure the photographer has a good understanding on newborn posing, lighting, equipment and has had some training for this. Newborn safety should also be one of their priorities. They should also know all the special tricks to sooth and comfort your baby so they are relaxed and comfortable during the whole session.
  • Investment: I know this is one of the most important factors clients look for when searching for a newborn photographer. Many families are on a budget and sometimes will sacrifice the points mentioned above (quality, reviews and experience) for a better deal. Please remember these will be images you will hopefully treasure for a lifetime. You are hiring someone that should have the proper training, equipment and background on how to handle your brand new baby. All these things add up and are a part of what this investment covers.

Your baby will only be this little for a short period of time, so make sure you choose wisely who you want to capture this special time in your family’s life!

Brooklyn NY Family Photographer|My First Year

What a year this has been…filled with uncertainty, hope, dreams, aspiration, change, struggles, and most of all growth…

I don’t think I ever shared how I started my photography journey…I’ve always been a crafter and “artsy” since very young. I remember my mom taking me to pottery and painting classes since I was just a little girl. I always loved art class all through my schooling years. I wasn’t really exposed to photography until I took a class back in college, at the University of Miami, some 12 years or so ago! Thanks to some very brave girlfriends of mine who volunteered to be my models I was able to practice and experiment for all of my school assignments (don’t worry girls, I won’t post those photos here, those are safe!). I was doing my Bachelor’s degree in Advertising and thought that it was too late to change paths, but the spark was already ignited. I graduated, started working at an Ad agency, and eventually after a few years switched to the production side within the same agency. I LOVED working with directors, creatives, and photographers. I was somewhat back in my element.

Then, life happened. Got married, had a kid, move to North Carolina, had another kid 18 months apart, move back to Florida, bought a house, and then just focused my life on my kids. But the internal dilemma was always there, I wanted to do something for me, and I always knew that it was photography.

I was always too scared to find the right moment to start, and always made excuses for myself. I was scared to fail and scared to have my creativity critiqued. Then one day, almost exactly a year ago, I just said TODAY IS THE DAY and bought a camera. No more excuses.  And so it began.

Now, after almost a year of lots of hard work, late nights, reading, learning, tutorials, workshops, practice, research, and amazing help from extraordinary photographers I have met along the way, I finally realize that I am doing what I love doing and what I was meant to do.

I am not going to lie, there are many moments that I question everything about myself and my work and have the urge to just give up, especially after moving yet again to NYC a few months ago and starting my business from zero. But you know what; I made it this far and all this hard work can only lead to more growth and strength.

I came across this quote recently and it really hit home for me.

inspirational quote

I always used to tell my husband, “I can’t wait for my life to start”, but what I didn’t realize was that this is what my life is, all the craziness and ups and downs.

If any of you out there reading this are unsure or scared of starting to live YOUR dream, just do it. There will never be a perfect time. Just take the plunge and never look back.

I am excited to see what the next year brings for me and Gd willing, it will be filled with success, happiness and joy 🙂
