How to choose a newborn photographer|Charlottesville, Virginia Newborn Photographer

How do I choose a professional newborn photographer?

Past Work & Portfolio: Most photographers have portfolios or blogs on their websites. Take a look at their work and style. My personal style is simple, timeless and classic.  Choose a newborn photographer that matches your style.

Testimonials & Reviews: Most photographer’s have ratings on social media and testimonials on their website.  What do past clients have to say about their experience? Is this the type of experience you are looking for?

Experience, Training & Safety: Newborn Photography is very specialized.  In my opinion, experience is the most important factor when choosing a newborn photographer.  Also, look at what kind of training the photographer has with newborns. Hands-on training is so important when it comes to photographing newborns. Safety should always be the number one priority.

Investment: Most families are on a budget. However, you are trusting a photographer with your days old baby and you want an expert not the best deal possible. These images will be treasured for generations. An experienced newborn photographer will be more expensive.  They have invested time and money in training, lighting, props and insurance (yes – photographers should have insurance!). Look at their experience and training and choose wisely.  Denise Feagans Photography offers two newborn options so that you can choose a newborn session that works for your budget.

Denise Feagans Photography will provide you with an unparalleled experience from inquiry to the session and delivery of your gallery.

Denise has been photographing newborns since January 2010. She has trained with some of the top newborn photographers in the industry. She has taken classes on safety, lighting, editing and posing. Denise shoots many newborns a year and is licensed and insured.

Denise creates the perfect environment for your newborn session experience. She styles your session with the colors you request. The studio is kept at 80-85 degrees for the comfort of the baby. She never forces a pose and stops the session if the baby needs to eat or just needs a snuggle. Safety is always her top priority.
